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.

Just across from the Flagler university and museum. Lots of little shops very close by. We walked to a bagel place for breakfast that is 3 minutes… Read more

The terrific location of this hotel is matched by superb service and beautiful surroundings. The decor is Moorish/Spanish influence and you feel transported. Our room had a great view of the Lightner Museum next door and the fabulous Flagler College main building. The pool was on outdoors on the second floor and while the bar was not open (we assumed due to low occupancy with COVID), their lovely Cabañas with flowing privacy curtains and lush landscaping make it feel like a true getaway. They have privileges with a nearby beach club but we didn’t have time to check those out. A nice touch was water or champagne upon check in. Breakfast was delicious, avocado toast fresh fruit and lots of options like eggs, pancakes etc. Everyone from valet to front desk etc were warm and welcoming. Highly recommend! Read less

This is a really nice property. The room was spacious and clean. My wife especially loved the tufted red velvet headboard. Additionally, it's in a great location. Everything in the historic district is within walking distance. We had a very enjoyable stay.
