An architectural icon, with roots dating back to 1928, Florida’s ‘Pink Palace’ infuses the beauty of the Gulf Coast with Gatsby-era elegance. High class dining, a large spa and two oceanfront pools provide everything needed for a chic beachfront break.

This candy floss-coloured palace gazes out over St Pete Beach, where white sands meet warm Gulf waters. The hotel’s hosted many a celebrity since its beginnings back in the Roaring Twenties, and it’s still a treasured Florida landmark today.

The hotel has been undergoing changes since its Phase I renovation in 2018, and so far has unveiled refurbishment to the lobby at the Beach House Suites and the courtyard, as well as new beach and pool furniture.

In autumn 2019, The Don CeSar will complete Phase II, with property-wide renovations including the Lobby Bar, Uncle Andy's Ice Cream Parlor, Maritana Grille, Sea Porch and the Beach House Suites exteriors.

Phase III will take place in summer 2020, with the renovation of all guest rooms to evoke the historic Art Deco feel of the 1920s – upgraded layouts will allow for two queen-size beds instead of doubles, while some bathtubs will be replaced by showers.
