We just spent two relaxing nights at the Don CeSar after my daughter's college commencement. Although we were in "the cheap seats" (booked through Expedia), we found the rooms well appointed and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel's amenities. Room service was prompt & the food tasty. The pools & whirlpool were clean, well maintained and uncrowded. Beach towels were plentiful and...

We purchased a discounted room for half off the regular price. It was worth the $200 a night we paid (would not have paid $400). The bed linens were clean and fresh and each queen bed had four pillows of varying softness. We had a view of the ocean from a window on the south side of the building which...

We enjoyed our small but comfortable room. Every night, I fell asleep immediately: comfortable bed, busy day. The hotel staff is attentive and friendly. I took beach yoga through the hotel this morning. Elizabeth is a knowlegeable and dedicated instructor. She remained positive and gentle throughout the class, despite very high winds (we had to relocate to a sheltered location),...

Room was a little dated but overall nice experience. The staff was helpful and friendly. The gym was fine for a hotel and room service was okay. Valet was expensive but there is the option to self park.

Check-in went well. The staff was polite and welcoming. The room was tiny, which is to be expected in older hotels, but it was well appointed and clean. So that was not a deal breaker. I was traveling alone with my young son. We were only there for pool and beach time. Upon setting out on our first morning, we...

Our stay here was not what we expected for £250 a night!. our room was so small and quite tired, the view was ok but you had to look out the window and squint to see the beach (partial view). There was a constant smell of marijuana from the next room and they smoked out the window constantly. I did...

Visited here for 2 weeks in May 2017. Hotel looks nice from outside and isn't too bad on the inside, but some décor can only be described as "tired", particularly the carpets. Service was good and staff were friendly. However, this is quite an expensive place to stay when you add up the extras. As a resident, you have to...

My husband and I decided we would try a different hotel other than the Don CeSar. We booked a room at the Grand Plaza on St. Pete beach, but when we walked in, we decided instantly that we would not stay there. Not going to bask the hotel. I will stay on course with rating the Don CeSar. Wonderful, friendly...
