Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • It's a glamorous Spanish-style treasure on the shores of St. Pete Beach. Known as "The Pink Palace", this lavish hotel has played host to countless luminaries since its construction in 1928.
  • Indoor? Outdoor? Both? Their event spaces cover it all, from beachside ceremonies to opulent oceanview ballrooms and terraces—and your personal wedding consultant will help ensure everything flows perfectly.
  • Extend the celebration to a full weekend at this dreamy destination venue. Relax with your sweetie during a signature couples’ massage or herbal facial treatment, share welcome cocktails with guests in the opulent Lobby Bar, or just spend a lazy afternoon enjoying poolside concierge service or catching some rays on the pristine white sand beach.
