Bottom Line

The Casa Monica Hotel is a gorgeous, historic building dating back to 1888. This 138-room hotel is located in a convenient, central location near many of St. Augustine's top attractions. The Spanish-villa-meets-Arabian-Nights theme creates a historic, romantic vibe in the lobby, and the theme continues into the rooms. Details such as dim lighting, dramatic, velvet headboards, wrought iron accents, and red oriental-style carpets will appeal to some, though others might find them kitschy. Highlights include a sunny rooftop pool with large surrounding patio and a spacious fitness center. There is also a convenient on-site cafe, restaurant, and bar, as well as manicured grounds. However, pricey fees for Wi-Fi and parking might encourage some guests to compare other options in St. Augustine.

Location

In the historic downtown area, within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and historic sights

Casa Monica is located near the historic district, in a landmark building from 1888, within walking distance of restaurants, shops, and sites.

Nicknamed the "Ancient City," St. Augustine is the oldest continually occupied European-established city in the country. This Florida city is known for a romantic vibe with streets lined by beautiful architecture. Some buildings date back to the 1600s while "newer" structures from the 19th-century still celebrate the Spanish colonial style but on a larger and grander scale.

St. George Street is the main street of St. Augustine's historic district. Almost all attractions center around the city's history; Castillo de San Marco, the oldest masonry fort in the U.S., attracts visitors, as does the Markland Mansion, and even the original Ripley's Believe It or Not! is housed in a historic mansion. The historic district has a compact but lively nightlife with one of the most popular activities being ghost tours. Anastasia Park has some of the best beaches in the area, as well as a lagoon and several hiking and walking trails.
