The magnificent, flamingo-pink Don CeSar Beach Resort with its Moorish bell towers and turrets, has dominated the St. Petersburg skyline since 1928,.
DK Eyewitness
A local landmark, this palatial pink hotel has oodles of old-world charm. With a seemingly endless beachfront, it boasts a lobby with high windows, crystal chandeliers, and marble floors.
