Discover all the reasons to make The Collector your St. Augustine home base.

1 | You love art, architecture and history

The Collector Luxury Inn & Gardens is St. Augustine's most immersive historical hotel. Talks with art and history docents, watercolor painting with local artists, and walking tours are all part of the experience.

You Walk Everywhere

2 | You walk everywhere

Set on a full block in historic St. Augustine, The Collector Luxury Inn & Gardens is within a short stroll of some of the city’s most popular attractions, including the Castillo de San Marcos, the Lightner Museum and Flagler College.

3 | You’re a romantic

Original fireplaces, verandas, coquina walls, rough-hewn linens and luxurious silks. At every turn, quiet nooks and age-old textures whisper a romantic tale of Southern hospitality and the enduring legacy of colonial rule.

4 | You believe every day should end around a fire pit

After a day of sightseeing and exploring the oldest city in America, could there be a better way to unwind? Gather around one of the inn’s cozy fire pits and savor a glass of wine from the nearby San Sebastian Winery or a perfectly made cocktail at The Well Bar.

5 | You collect experiences (not things)

If your most cherished memories are the experiences you’ve shared with friends, The Collector Luxury Inn & Gardens is, quite simply, your kind of place. We value moments above all else... breakfasts on the veranda, afternoon garden parties, and private tours with local historians to name a few.
