Loews Don Cesar Hotel

One of the best places to visit in St. Petersburg, a trip to the Don Cesar will take you back in time to the roaring 20s. Constructed in 1924, it was envisioned to be a “pink castle.” In fact, before it was renamed the Don Cesar, it was called the “Pink Lady.”

Life Style

Designed with a mix of different styles, the Don Cesar blends Mediterranean and Moorish styles. Consequently, you’ll see this in the arched openings, red clay tile roofing, balconies, and tower-like upper stories.

In the past, the “Pink Lady” was the romping grounds of famous figures like F. Scott Fitzgerald, Al Capone, and FDR. Today, it has been renovated into a fully functional hotel, complete with restaurants and a full-service beach club and spa.

Because Don Cesar is so iconic, it has been featured in many movies, music videos, and even its restaurant was featured on Food Network. It is said the hotel today is haunted by its former guests. Naturally, you can take a ghost tour of the grounds.
