The Don CeSar “Pink Palace” located in 3400 Gulf Blvd, in Saint Pete Beach, Florida makes you feel like you walked into the Great Gatsby era with its 1920s charm.
The hotel’s early days saw guests such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Clarence Darrow and more flocking to the sandy beaches of west Florida. The hotel was converted to a hospital during the war era and renovated back to a luxury resort in the 1970s. Since then the hotel has had its share of celebrities, films and more.

The resort offers 277 guest rooms and 36 suites, which are newly renovated with breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico and surrounding St. Pete. The Don CeSar runs on the pricier side but offers special package deals throughout the year. The resort also offers two fine dining restaurants, an ice cream parlor and we can’t forget room service for those midnight snacks!

After visiting myself and falling in love with the 1920s charm (and of course the PINK) I would give the resort 4.7/5 stars.
