A look at St. George Inn. Nestled in the quiet courtyard of City Gate Plaza, The St. George Inn is a unique hotel offering what I have learned is a European-style lodging in the heart of the Nation’s Oldest City. The Inn is in the perfect location for exploring St. Augustine’s historic sites and discovering the many shops, restaurants and art galleries all within an easy walking distance
As a traveler at heart, I adore finding unique places to stay. Places that are a little different from the ordinary hotel stays.
St. George Inn offered me just that sort of stay.

A Look at St. George Inn
Location, Location, Location
One of the biggest things I have learned in my travels especially traveling with MS it’s that location is everything. Location is key for many reasons especially for me. I loved where St. George Inn is located right on St. George street. I was able to leave my room and walk to shops, restaurants and event attractions. There was even access to trolley pick stations. This was a real benefit as I get tired easily in the afternoon.
The rooms are beautiful. The right amount of old mixed with new. I got a sneak peek at some of the new rooms that are almost ready for guest and they are gorgeous. Plus the view from the balcony is EPIC. With spacious rooms for couples to suites for families St. George Inn has something for everyone. The selling point for the teen boy was Starbucks coffee in the room. For me, it was the bathroom with a walk-in shower.
Another great thing about this Inn is it has an elevator. Unlike some Inns that are older or haven’t renovated St. George Inn is equipped to handle any mobility issue. This was a high point for me. I liked that I could get to my room without having to take stairs.
Food and Wine
You may recall that anything that involves food and wine has my full attention. I, after all, am a self-proclaim foodie. So I was excited to see what type of food would be offered as part of the breakfast. Let’s just say you won’t go away hungry on your adventures. The morning buffet which is served from 8-11AM yes moms we can sleep in. The buffet included oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, along with bagels, meats and cheese and my favorite breakfast bread (my excuse for eating dessert for breakfast).
In the evening Bin 39 opens. The exclusive wine bar of St George Inn. No, you don’t have to be a guest to enjoy either wine but I hear guest get a discount so there is that. Plus a little birdy told me that Sangria Saturday is back! Now I admit I don’t know a lot about wine but from the bottles on the wall, I could tell this is the place to be.
Still, need convincing this is the place to stay. Well if the location, beautiful rooms and food haven’t convinced you then maybe service will. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with smiles and people who wanted to help. Not only did the girls come out and unload my car she took my bags to my room for me.
On top of that every time, I came down to do something someone was there to greet me and ask if I needed anything. I felt like I was a VIP guest. But that is how they treat all their guest which is awesome.
