Sponsored Content Shelley Smith, Assistant Director of Sales Over 30 years in hospitality, a Southern girl with charm and intelligence, who enjoys the outdoors. Past MPI Chapter President, FSAE and ASAE member working with planners throughout the US and internationally. Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa (727) 298-1488 Beautiful Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa ewly renovated and sitting on 10 acres of white sugar sand beach, Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa is the place to relax, recharge and reconnect. Our multi-million dollar transformation from hotel to luxurious beach- front resort required a complete renovation from guest rooms to pools and just about everything in between. Highlights include all new guest rooms, impressive interior upgrades, two new pools, new dining, new spa, new fitness center and a newly opened Starbucks. So, if you have not been to our property in the last year, you are in for a spectacular surprise once you arrive… After settling into your room, take a stroll down to the lobby level which hosts all of the hotel's indoor activity. Our new Hibiscus Spa will transform any ordinary day into a blissful escape of relaxation. It features 8 treatment rooms offering a variety of decadent services from facials to massage. Treat yourself to a European Vichy shower or hot lava shell massage. Now that you are relaxed, breeze through the lobby over to our beautiful new Coasters Lounge. There you can enjoy sipping on your favorite libation as you overlook the sparkling pools and pristine beach. Once outside in the beautiful Florida sunshine there is so much to do! You can spend the day poolside in one of our new private cabanas or lounges next to the new sleek infinity pool. Or you can cool off and step right into the shallow zero entry pool and relax for a bit. Then you can head out to Tommy's Tiki Bar – the only place on Clearwater beach where you can enjoy toes in the sand with drink in hand! Cabana and beach chairs are available for rent daily or perhaps you want to seek a more adventurous start with a ride on a jet-ski! Now that you've seen the property, take advantage of a bike ride around this cozy Gulf-side community but make sure you're back in time to take in a legendary Clearwater Beach sunset. Dinner plans? We have lots of delicious options to choose from. Just off the lobby, Carambola offers American cuisine with daily Chef's features. Be sure to ask for a table on the outside deck to watch that beautiful orange sun slips completely into the Gulf. If you're in the mood for something different, visit the Spotted Donkey Cantina on the lower level. Facing active Mandalay Avenue, this scratch kitchen features amazing Mexican cuisine with influences of Southwest flavors. Everything that comes out of this chef-inspired kitchen is authentic and mouth-watering. To top it all off, Herradura blends our very own double barrel Reposado tequila – smooth and perfect for sipping or mixing. Try a flight of tequila if you aren't sure what you like. As you leave the Spotted Donkey, you will find our full service Starbucks just next door. Stop in for your favorite coffee or tea before retiring to your room for the night. Once the sun has set, you can retire in your beautifully remodeled guest room. Every room and suite boasts a complete rejuvenation including carpet, paint, furniture and bedding. The tubs have been replaced with contemporary glass enclosed showers and accented by updated tile and lighting. Your room is like your own private oasis with soothing blue and teal tones and breathtaking view of the harbor, the Gulf waters or legendary Pier 60. So, sit back, relax and start planning your next magnificent day on gorgeous Clearwater Beach - the #1 Beach in America. ■ N
