Casa Monica Hotel

St Augustine, Gold Coast Beaches

The hotel

Restored to its 1888 glory, and registered in the National Trust Historic Hotels of America, this Moorish castle-like landmark is a very special place to stay. With authentic period features and decor, you really will feel like you have taken a step back into yesteryear. This hotel was the hang-out of aristocracy and royalty; inside, it's all tapestries, velvet and chandeliers, with top-class dining and discreet service. It's in the heart of the Historic District, where you'll find boutiques, antique shops, museums and more. The Poseidon Spa is a great addition to this luxurious hotel and provides the perfect place for some relaxation and pampering.

Stayed here 10 years ago and loved it. Enjoyed it again although the breakfast was disappointing. Quiet room. Large room. Well appointed. Starbucks on first floor. Close to The water, restaurants and shopping. First class hotel.

Beautiful decor with exceptional service from very attentive staff! Sparkling clean and health conscious! My husband and I had to change travel plans last minute and Casa Monica Resort & Spa really made up for it! We will definitely come back!

Definitely the lowest satisfaction on the Kessler group. Love the autograph collections of Marriott but No to this one. Read less

Beautiful, historic hotel that was accommodating and went above and beyond during a pandemic and protest. It is beautiful, inside and out. The staff was beyond friendly and we loved every minute of our stay! I would highly recommend! You can walk to everything! They even helped our team when we didn’t know that laundry was unavailable!

First, what a beautiful and well-kept property! The valet was professional and kind, although we always had to turn out valet ticket in at the front desk as we waited and never saw anyone stationed at the valet stand.
