We recently had the opportunity to stay at SpringHill Suites by Marriott in Clearwater Beach, FL and wanted to share about the experience. Make sure to read to the end, as SpringHill Suites has been SO generous to offer one of my readers a chance to win a 1 night stay in a Studio Suite with breakfast for up to 4 guests!!
When we arrived at the hotel, check-in was quick and easy, and the valet guys do an awesome job of parking/retrieving your car quickly. They only offer valet, but to park anywhere on the beach costs money. Their valet costs are actually on the lower end compared to other parking at comparable hotels in Clearwater.
I was so impressed with the rooms. They were spotless and everything was very clean when we got to our double queen suite. It was nice to have the sleeping area divided from the couch. The tv could turn either way so my husband, the night owl, could stay up later watching sports. The rooms are modern and bright. They come with a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker which is always a plus. They have a closet with plenty of room, along with an ironing board, hangers and bench. The rooms are very family friendly, even though we did not have our kids with us this trip, it's definitely a hotel I would come back to with the family.
Normally at hotels I don't sleep very well because the beds are either too hard or too soft, but this hotel had the most comfortable mattress. It was firm but not too firm, and I actually slept really well. The bathroom is spacious with plenty of towels and a tub/shower.
There is a gorgeous pool area outside the lobby overlooking the water. They also have an amazing breakfast with so many choices from hot cooked eggs, sausage and waffle machines to cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, bagels and more. There is a business center and fitness center as well.
SpringHill Suites is only a short walk to the beach and local shops and places to eat. The views from the room's balcony are beautiful. You can see the water and it was so pleasant sitting outside. We didn't need our car the whole time we were there with so many places to eat, shop and the beach all right there. If you're looking for the perfect location for your beach trip, this is it!
Clearwater is one of my favorite beaches to visit, and finding a good place to stay is not always easy, but this is honestly the best hotel I have stayed at in the Clearwater area. The location is central to basically everything you could possibly want to do. I would highly suggest visiting this hotel on your next beach trip, you will not be disappointed!
And now, for the giveaway! Enter the Rafflecopter below to be entered to win a 1 night stay for up to 4 guests in a SpringHill Studio Suite with breakfast included!
If you have children under the age of 12, I would highly suggest looking into LegoLand. Our kids are 7, 4 and 2, and this was honestly a perfect time to bring them. There was obviously plenty for the 7 year old to do, but surprisingly there was a lot for the 2 year old as well.
We went in July, mid summer, and it really wasn't as crowded as I was expecting it to be. We did go on a Monday (not a weekend) so this helped some I'm sure.
What to Do
There's just about something for everyone at LegoLand whether you're 2 or 92.
How to Save
Overall, we had an amazing time at LegoLand Florida. I would highly recommend this park to anyone with kids, and going in the summer was a great time for us.
