From the Tampa Bay Times: "Loews Don CeSar named Best Historic Hotel in America"

Justine Giffen has this article on the Loews Don Cesar in St. Pete Beach:
     The Loews Don CeSar Hotel on St. Pete Beach was recently named the "Best Historic Hotel" in its size category by the Historic Hotels of America organization.
     The 277-room "Pink Palace," which has been an icon on St. Pete Beach for decades, was built in 1928. The hotel was recognized for its history and restoration.
     "It's been 88 years in the making," said Stephen Cummings, general manager of the Don CeSar. "I'm proud to represent such an iconic landmark."
If you've been following this blog and/or reading The Coastal Observer your excited about the future of our iconic Gulf Stream Hotel in Lake Worth. The Gulf Stream Hotel, like the "Pink Palace", were built along Henry Flagler's rail line which would eventually reach the Florida Keys. In case you're interested, the Henry Flager Museum is located in the Town of Palm Beach.

Congratulations to the team who restored the Don CeSar.
