Fodor's Expert Review Doubletree Beach Resort Tampa Bay

17120 Gulf Blvd., North Redington Beach, Florida, 33708, USA

This Hilton hotel midway between St. Pete Beach and Clearwater Beach offers the chain's well-known luxury without diminishing the mellow charm of the surrounding area. The rooms aren't huge, but most offer stunning views of either the mangrove-lined Intracoastal Waterway or the Gulf of Mexico. Added bonuses in all rooms include a pair of soft robes and, yes, freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, a Doubletree hallmark. Mango's, the on-site restaurant and tiki bar, is a draw for visitors as well as locals. On Fridays when it's not chilly out, hula dancers give a family-friendly, sunset performance by tiki light. The hotel is near the Redington Pier.
