The Don CeSar


    The Don CeSar
 in St. Pete Beach

Overview

There's no mistaking the Don CeSar, a historic hotel in St. Pete Beach. Instantly known as Florida's Pink Castle when it opened back in 1928, this ten-story hotel sits on the sugary sands of an island in the Gulf of Mexico. Mediterranean and Moorish architectural motifs and the hotel's cotton-candy-colored facade and lush tropical surroundings stand in inviting contrast against Florida's Caribbean-blue sky.

Originally named for the chivalrous Don Ce-Sar in Vincent Wallace's light opera Maritana, the Don (as it is locally known) was built by Thomas Rowe, who spared no expense on this balcony- and terrace-lined historic building in Florida. Lofty ceilings and rich furnishings are just a few of the alluring details of this 277-guestroom resort, some with views of the Gulf of Mexico or Boca Ciega Bay. Easy access to the beach, golf shuttles, two pools, a full-service fitness center and spa, children's activities, daily sailing, and water sports—it even served as a training camp for the New York Yankees.

The list of attractions at the Don CeSar is endless and just as memorable as the building's grandiose, pink-walled exterior.

The distinctive color and architecture of the Don have made it a longtime point of reference on maritime charts.
