Countdown to FJA Annual Convention
This year the FJA Annual Convention will be at the Don CeSar Beach Resort in St. Pete Beach, Florida. Since 1928, the “Pink Palace” has been a beacon for travelers, not to mention for ships; the hotel is so large, it was listed as a point of reference on maritime maps. Early guests included F. Scott Fitzgerald, FDR and the Great Depression-era New York Yankees, who stayed there during spring training. The hotel fell on hard times during the 1940s, and was even used as a convalescent home by the Air Force (and painted green — egad!) before being restored in 1973.
Today, the Don is again the plushest place to stay along the Gulf, a thing of beauty with its Moorish- style archways and cupolas restored to their original pink hue. But it’s the emphasis on Jazz Age–era service — evident in extras like a poolside concierge and a VIP program designed for pets — that makes the hotel stand out.
