One of the more recent additions to the Clearwater Beach skyline, this upscale resort towers above almost everything else in the immediate area, both in terms of height and luxury. If you take State Road 60 from Tampa International Airport, the building will come into view as you drive west from downtown Clearwater. Suites have marble countertops, balconies offering sweeping views (of the gulf or Intracoastal Waterway), and stylish furnishings. Pretty much any detail you
can imagine is here. Weather permitting, the 8th-floor pool deck, which has a bar, is a popular spot for locals and guests alike when the sun sets. The enormous full-service spa is also notable.
