Nestled at the heart of the historic district in the USA’s oldest continually settled city, St Francis Inn dates from 1791. As soon as you walk from brick-paved St George Street through the wrought iron gate, you enter a serene haven of old-world charm, winning hospitality and a relaxed, romantic ambiance.
The rooms and suites combine the character of yesteryear with modern comfort, such as queen and king beds, central heating and air-conditioning, TVs with DVD and MP3/iPod connections. Many rooms also enjoy private balconies or porches, whirlpool tubs, and fireplaces. The Cottage is ideal for a family or for two couples, and the nearby 1894 House features two apartment-style suites of rooms, one on each floor.
Your stay also includes a gourmet buffet breakfast, as well as an evening social hour with complimentary beverages and tasty homemade treats, followed by a selection of nightly decadent desserts. The private walled garden is a favourite place to relax, and a temperature-controlled outdoor pool is a private hideaway ideal for a cooling dip on a hot day. For those keen on heading to the local beach, the Inn is happy to arrange for beach towels, beach chairs, off-street parking, a shower and other seaside comforts.
St Ausgustine was founded by the Spanish in 1565, and guests can easily walk through over four centuries of history along the ancient narrow streets leading from St Francis Inn to the Plaza de la Constitucion. Within the 144 neighbouring blocks of the Historic Disctrict is a huge variety of restaurants, museums, galleries, antique shops, historic sites and shopping.
