The Don CeSar, St. Pete Beach
Don Cesar doesn’t honor third party reservations.
Show up no reservation! took my money but no reservation upon arrival at this dysfunctional property. They said I was in luck and provided me with a room that was not the king bed room I reserved. Check in process took over 30 minutes. The front desk clerk suggested it would be easier if I went ahead and paid for the room again. I refused. I also asked to be contacted while at hotel and be told how this happened. As a result I will not ever stay at this over rated hotel again. I’ve already deleted the app. I can not recommend either or the Don Cesar. Do not stay at the Don Cesar good people, nice spa, lobby bar with music so loud you can’t even carry on a conversation all ok. The dysfunction is all management related. I suggest the Hyatt on Clearwater Beach. Highly functional hotel.

Rooms very small, bathrooms tiny. Stayed in 2 queen bed rm. We were 2 adults and 2 young adults. Horrible. Only 1 pool open in high season. Lounge chairs PACKED like sardines around the pool area. They only allowed us 2 lounge chair passes (we were 4) for beach. Overpriced for restaurants and rooms. Would NEVER recommend this hotel. Other more spacious, modern and reasonably priced in the area. Hotel fee for beach of $40! Parking fee outrageous too.

The Don CeSar, St. Pete Beach
Construction as place is in need if much needed renos. Our carpet on 6th fl was taped for contruction worker traffic. Elevator down for two days without at least a sign on it leaving one elevator working.Room very small with tiniest washroom we have ever stayed in our many years of travel.Restaurant disappointed us with serving highly over salted and cooked fish dish which chef admitted to server was overdone. Unfortunately no lobster as a backup so elected to split entree of my partners which was fine.Recommend that they serve oysters in ICE in future for better taste and appearance.Had stayed many years ago at this hotel when Loews owned it and was delighted by ambience and 1 st class service unfortunately not up to par on this last stay. Would expect Marriot chain will inject better hospitality as new owners u fortunately we wont be back.
