If you're not a B&B kind of person, then Casa Monica is the place to stay in St. Augustine. The hotel was taken over by Marriott in 2010, joining the chain's swankier Autograph Collection. This is not your typical cookie-cutter Marriott, that's for sure. The building was constructed in the Moorish Revival style, the interiors highlighted by antique furnishings, Moorish columns, and original artwork. Red velvet headboards in the guest rooms (some say they aren't quite true to the age of the hotel) make this anything but a typical Marriott. Upper floors have views of the pool, while rooms along the main street have park views. Bathrooms are large, with high-end toiletries, and showers or tub/shower combos. High rollers should consider the seven one- to four-bedroom suites in the hotel's towers and central turret, which will have them feeling like the king or queen of the castle. A bar and the highly regarded 95 Cordova restaurant make this centrally located stay a point of interest in its own right. As historic as the building may be, it's far from a plastic-on-the-couch kind of place; in fact, pets are allowed for a non-refundable $150 fee.
