|How is life at Starlight Tower?
In a word "amazing"! From sunrise to
looking out your windows and balconies at the Gulf and
the non stop activities at the beach with people
swimming, surfing, sailing, parasailing, sunbathing,
fishing and certainly the birds who are the best
fishermen in the area! But especially the sunsets where
you see the sun dipping ever so slowly and leisurely
disappearing burning red in the Gulf's waters and the
sky colored by the divine palette on all hues of red and
blue you feel at peace and content as if somehow entered

|Every cart postal of St Pete Beach you buy, two buildings stand out: a pink
on the South side and a white on the North side. On the
south side the pink, is the most luxurious and historic hotel of the area
Beach Resort a Loews Hotel and on the north side the white is us,
Starlight Tower! Don CeSar was build in 1926 and its construction completed two years later with
grand opening in 1928. The Don is one of eight hotels in Florida that is
listed on the National Trust for Historical Preservation, Historic Hotels
Our building was built in 1958 and our relationship with
Don CeSar is that both
of us respectively adorn the North and South side of
St Pete Beach the two
most beautiful landmark buildings, one pink the other white boasting solid construction with steel and concrete
and not pre-fabricated materials.
Remarkable solid structures that
not only have endured the passing of decades and
occasional punishment from our tropical weather which is
a small price to pay living right on the Gulf but even
today they look and feel brand new...
In our lobby embedded on the wall is a plaque by the
talented and highly artistic master masons that were
proud to participate in the construction of the
building. Shortly we will add an archives section with
memorable pictures taken during our construction who
puts to shame today's ready-made structures.
The happy bride in front of the Don where her wedding
reception was given on May 11, 2011, became a
Starlighter when she was ten years old.
