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.

Elegant, relaxing, fantastic location, walkable to anyplace you want to see, shop or dine at. The Bar and restaurant are also fantastic! The art gallery attached to the 1st level is top notch and the jewelry store is stellar. Location to Flagler college? across the street! We have stayed there many times and look forward to staying again. Each room is different, comfortable and elegant. Read less

Comfortable hotel. Beautifully appointed and clean. Nice location within St. Augustine and near everything. It is haunted though, no matter what the staff says. :) Heard ragtime piano music at 4:50am coming from the hall.

The location is perfect for exploring St. Augustine! The building is beautiful and the rooms are very comfortable. The staff are accommodating if there is an issue. People are quiet at the pool. The bed was actually comfortable and the pillows fluffy.
