  • Exception Customer Service

    by AuntCindyZ on 2018-03-23 10:04 am

    I stayed at the Don CeSar from the 20th of March through the 22nd attending a conference registration. On the day of my arrival I picked up a horrible stomach bug and was very sick. Someone from the hotel staff dropped off conference materials to my room and saw that i was very ill. She very kindly brought me much needed ginger ale and ice. She didn't tell me to ring room service, she did this herself. It is terrible to be sick away from home. Her simple act of kindness meant so much to me. By the way, the hotel is just lovely. Next time I will enjoy it for real!

  • Spring Break for all ages

    by Flowerpowerfromtn on 2018-03-22 12:56 am

    Our crew just completed a week long stay at the Don. Ages of our 15 family members ranged from 2 to 70. Overall, the vacation was wonderful, with quite a few outstanding moments and some areas for growth. Live music by the pool was nice, but reserved for weekend days only. We loved hearing this as we played by the water. Poolside service was speedy and polite. Attendants were friendly and prompt. Poolside food was adequate. The best meals were chicken quesadillas and the Caesar salad. The menu and portions change some during the week, so you may not always get the exact same item as the day before. Several of us ordered the chicken and the salad repeatedly. Both were tasty! Fries and burgers were also good. Mixed drinks were average, but the pina colada was amazing. The kids also couldn't get enough of the smoothies. Watch out for birds that swoop down and take fries and other items. Be sure to explore all parts of the pool - ping pong, a nice shower and private changing area, spa sauna, and hot tubs. Attendants at the beach worked very hard and were impressive with the clean up and furniture take down each afternoon. A lively selection of kid sand toys and pool toys were provided each day. All food and drinks were somewhat over-priced, as were the beach chair and umbrella rentals. We splurged with a beach bed one day, which was really relaxing and fun. We had several rooms on various floors. Rooms are small, but comfortable. Room Service was quick and daily maid service was perfect. We loved the little Chocolates at night. Beds were soft and bathroom items were wonderful. Hotel was perfectly quiet, even though it was full with guests. Rooms on the first floor and the check-in desk need work with becoming more handicap friendly. Parking attendants may be some of our favorite staff. Scott from Louisville was very helpful with late arriving guests, assuring me that he would assist in locating the rest of our party. These fellows were always kind and ready to help. We also enjoyed the shopping at the hotel - a little too much! Thanks to Martha at the Don shop for helping our crew locate neat purchases all week. The workout facility was super nice and clean. One of our family members recently recovered from surgery and was hesitant to work out. An attendant at the fitness room stayed by her side and made sure she was comfortable with her workout. We loved the cold minty towels. Next time, we will try a class or beach yoga. Breakfast at the poolside restaurant was tasty; however, if you didn't get the expensive breakfast buffet, be prepared to wait a very long time for your food. Restaurant servers were polite and friendly. We hope to try the main floor dining next time. Piano bar at night was refreshing and relaxing. History tour was short and efficient. Andy's ice cream was a treat we all took in daily! (We loved hearing about this historical little spot from our knowledgeable Hawaiian tour guide!) We are counting down the days till we return.

  • Great service at hotel shops!

    I have visited this hotel many times and loved every vacation. Most recently I was unable to venture out of the hotel and did all my shopping at the hotel stores. I received great service from the shops, especially from Martha H at the Don Cesar shop. She helped me and several family members make selections and personalized our experience. As always, a great experience at the Don.

  • Great Hotel

    by Terry M on 2018-03-21 04:02 pm

    Having just returned from a 6 night stay during the St. Pete's Grand Prix.. have to say my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed staying here!
    It has charm, class and an upbeat, pleasant atmosphere!
    The staff were friendly and the pool and piano bar fun, as well as the beach bar overlooking pool!
    Have stayed before and it never disappoints -
    Looking forward to our next stay!

    Owner Response
    We are looking forward to having you back. Watching those Grand Prix cars fly through the downtown streets of St. Pete really gets your heart racing! We are thrilled we were able to play a role and provide a relaxing retreat. Please come back and join us again soon!

  • Weekend visit

    by Champagne08 on 2018-03-18 04:07 pm

    This is the first time we stayed at the Don Cesar and I found it average for the price we paid. The casual restaurant was very slow service and food okay. The restaurant upstairs was very nice and food was good. Most Hotel staff was pleasant.

    Owner Response
