This marquee hotel lies on the beaches of St. Petersburg Beach, Florida. It once was, and still is, a luxurious hotel offering many amenities to the exclusive elite. It was originally envisioned by Thomas Rowe, he wanted to build what he called a pink castle. To avoid sinking on the beach sand there was a special technique used to build the castle.
The hotel was built so that the concrete foundation would essentially float on the sand. To this day there isn’t any sign of sinking on the Don Cesar Property. If you can’t afford to stay at the hotel you should still visit St. Petersburg beach! It is one of the best in the United States.
