Hotel, motel, Holiday Inn

Vintage Postcard depicting 4 classic St Pete hotels: The Vinoy, Soreno, Princess Martha and Don CeSar, which, technically, is in St. Pete Beach.

Three remain; in 1992 the Soreno was demolished for the motion picture Lethal Weapon 3 starring Mel Gibson; it is the building seen exploding after the closing credits – perhaps a degrading end to a structure that contributed so much to the growth of St. Petersburg.
