The Famous Don Cesar Hotel

Hey there, wanderlust souls! Today, I'm thrilled to take you on a journey back in time to discover the rich history and allure of one of Florida's most enchanting treasures – the Don Cesar. Nestled in the heart of St. Pete Beach, this legendary Pink Palace has been captivating hearts for nearly a century, making it the ultimate choice for a honeymoon, anniversary trip, or a romantic escapade.

A Stroll Through Time

The Don Cesar in the Early Years

Stepping into the Don Cesar is like stepping into a timeless tale of elegance and romance. Built in 1928, this Mediterranean-style masterpiece was designed to be the playground of the rich and famous, a place where lavish parties and endless luxury intertwined. As the years passed, the Don Cesar witnessed the ebb and flow of history, hosting famous faces, serving as a military hospital during World War II, and eventually transforming into the luxury hotel it is today.

A Pink Paradise

Oh, let's not forget that iconic pink hue! The Don Cesar's distinctive color has earned it the moniker "Pink Palace" and rightfully so. Historians believe Thomas J. Rowe, the builder of the Don Cesar, was influenced by the cottages he remembered from his youth. As a visitor to Ireland, he saw the many cottages made of rosy lime mixed with mortar. Rowe referred to his hotel’s color as “rouge.” This rosy facade is an invitation to a world where sunsets paint the sky in breathtaking hues, and love stories come to life against a backdrop of shimmering sands and the turquoise waters of St. Pete Beach.
