On par with the Ritz and Four Season experience. Clean and Comfortable. Attention to detail. Staff that "Get it." Conference facility second to none. This was a truly delightful experience. How about this...a high-end hotel that doesn't nickel-dime you with charges for WiFi. I love it. Keep up the good work here Loews!

The Don Cesar hotel was perfect for our family weekend getaway. Friendly-atmosphere, beautiful beach, and easy access to activities in St. Petersburg. The highlight was the watersports, from paddle boarding to jet skiing. The staff was very helpful and great to have; thank you Tyler, Joe H, and Captian Clarke.

We hadn't been back to the Don since our honeymoon many, many years ago so when we had to be back in the area we thought it would be fun to go back to the beautiful hotel on the beach. It is such a grand property and a step back in time to old Florida. The location right on the...

We've stayed here twice in ten years. During both stays we received a nicely furnished, comfortable room with excellent air conditioning. We prefer the balcony rooms for the extra windows and natural light. The fourth floor balcony room facing the parking lot/inlet doesn't disappoint. Gulf views can be seen from the large corner windows. If you need some time away,...

A historic beautiful beachside hotel on St Pete beach. Service is very good but is expensive and they charge for everything, beach chairs and towels, late stay, parking etc. changing ownership from Lowes in February. Best food is from the beach restaurant. Rooms are very nice in an old style manner

We enjoyed our stay at the historical "Pink Palace"! The room was very nice with a breathtaking view of the Gulf. The staff was nice, and the amenities were wonderful. I enjoyed the pool, the beach (easy access), the restaurants and the exercise facilities. I wanted to treat myself to a spa day, but I ran out of time. The...

We had a small suite. ~The TV was opposite the bed. The sofa was opposite the door. The curtains were behind the sofa so you could not open or close without climbing. The bathroom was out of the arc. No stand alone shower. Only one basin very little space to put anything. No electricity outlet near a mirror in the...

Just steps from the spectacular "Pass-a-Grille" boardwalk area, the Don Cesar has all the charm you would expect of a mid-sized luxury hotel in Florida. You can choose to spend your days lounging by the Don Cesar pools or take a stroll along the pristine beaches (the best walk is to your south). Known as the "Pink Palace," the hotel...

“Don't pay extra for the beach view because it is difficult to see out the windows. It is an old hotel so the rooms and bathrooms are small.”
