Best Hotels in St. Augustine to Fit Your Traveler Personality

As the United State's oldest city, places to stay in St. Augustine are full of old-world charm. Choose from a eclectic bed and breakfast (like the cool Casa de Solana) or opt for a suite inside a luxury hotel such as the iconic Casa Monica. The city's bed and breakfasts generally give an authentic feel for the place as they are usually in historic homes and filled with antique furnishings. We picked some options that are historically cool, but come with comfy with modern amenities.  

There are also some great economy choices in the heart of the old city that are clean, cozy and perfectly situated for exploring the city by foot. We like downtown's new Double Tree and the Hilton Historic Bayfront. But if you are eager for more historic accommodations, there are many options inside the old city from which to choose. We share some of our favorites that will bring you to another era. 

Other options include beachside retreats for soaking in the sand and surf, and the ultimate a golfer's stay and play vacation at the World Golf Village. Here are some great ideas to help you choose the best landing pad for your visit to historic St. Augustine.
