Don CeSar Claims Top Spot in Florida Architecture Contest

The Don CeSar never ceases to impress! St. Pete Beach’s historical landmark has made headlines again by beating out several contenders for the top spot as the 2020 People’s Choice for Architecture. Victory was claimed after a Florida panel of architects deliberated over the designs of several historic hotels and inns throughout the state. Among the contenders were St. Petersburg’s own Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort, and The Lodge at Wakulla Springs.

Also known as the “Pink Palace,” the Don CeSar was opened in 1928 by a man named Thomas Rowe. After he passed away in 1940 after suffering a heart attack in the hotel lobby, his estranged wife, Mary, inherited the hotel. By 1974, the Don Cesar was added to the National Register of Historic Places.  Click here to learn more about the legendary history of this magnificent hotel.

What made this spectacular gem stand out to the panel of architects tasked with this decision making? Its Spanish and British Colonial influences, along with its “exuberant extravagance in the Roaring’20’s,” according to the report.  A popular tourist attraction and an exceptional resort accommodation if you’re planning on visiting Florida’s Gulf Coast, the luxurious Don Cesar hotel features its own private beach, spa, fitness center, numerous amenities, and it is ideally located near a multitude of cultural attractions, golf courses, shopping, dining, and much more in the surrounding St. Petersburg area.
