Pros: Food in all the restaurants was wonderful. It was quiet, and very relaxing.

Great hotel on the beach

Posted Aug 19, 2015
Pros: Beautifully decorated. Nice location right on private beach. Very clean hotel.
Valet crew and the Bartenders at all 3 bars were awesome. Maritana is a bit pricey and food was not that great for a "diamond" rated restaurant.

Nice older hotel by the beach. nedds updating

Posted Aug 19, 2015
Pros: The water sports on the beach
Cons: The room and the pool area need a serious upgrade. Not on par with other Lowes properties
Location: Downtown St Pete was a great time. Also, loved Ybor City. The best Cuban food at the Columbia restaurant. In a word, amazing
The hotel staff was great but the rooms are too small. The bathroom was like a closet. Not adequate for two people. No room and no counter space. The pool area was also too small. It is separated into two areas family and adult only pools but not enforced. Lots of kids running and splashing. Great for families not so great for single adults. When we arrived there was a wedding going on and we could not pull in the driveway because the bridal party and their photographer were taking pictures in the driveway in front of the building. They were oblivious to the fact that people were waiting to drive up and check in. We sat in the car for 10 minutes and nobody seemed to notice. The water sports on the beach were great. Mitchell took great care of us with the knacks, paddle boards and jet skis. The beach is quite nice. The food is fair,not terrible and not great

Great stay at Don Cesar

Posted Aug 19, 2015
Hotel is beautiful, historic and feels like a trip back to the roaring 20's. Room was on the small side, however was very comfortable and clean. Staff was great and the beach/pool area was beautiful. Only issue with the hotel is that it is of course very expensive. Drinks and food by the pool put a dent in your bank account, however that is to be expected at a hotel like this. You get what you pay for though.

Beautiful hotel with a lot of character.

Posted Aug 18, 2015
Pros: The hotel is a beautiful place with a lot of character.
Cons: The king luxury suite was set up for a business traveler. We would have preferred a sofa in place of a desk and chair.
Location: Perfectly situated on the Gulf. Beautiful beach.
The hotel staff were very nice and helpful. The gardens surrounding the hotel were very nice.
