Which are the best Clearwater Beach hotels for your Florida vacation? For many years this has been a moving target, with old dinky motels getting torn down, replaced by fancier (and more expensive) resorts that are dazzling instead of dull. In the space of two decades, the Clearwater beachfront resorts appearing on the top travel sites have gotten bigger and better.

As this transformation moved forward, the area got more and more accolades as a top beach destination in Florida. There are plenty of great air connections to the Tampa Bay airport, plus direct Allegiant ones to the St. Pete airport. If you leave Orlando by car, you can be on the beach in Clearwater about two hours later, so it’s a nice getaway after the theme park madness.

I’ve lived in the Tampa Bay region off and on for many years, so I’ve watched some of these Clearwater Beach hotels go from announcement to construction zone to grand opening. There will probably be a few more coming still (a JW Marriott has been announced), but most will likely be back a block from the beach: there are no more low-rises to tear down along this beautiful stretch of sand.

Here are picks for the best Clearwater Beach places to stay for your weekend holiday getaway or escape-the-winter beach vacation.


Best Traditional Luxury: Sandpearl Resort


Opened in 2007, this has long been the best overall luxury hotel on Clearwater Beach and it hold onto its crown because of its prime location right on the beach. While most resorts in this area are set back from the beach or across the street from it, at the Sandpearl you can kick back in a hotel-owned beach chair and charge a cocktail to your room. (The only other one where this is true is the inferior Hilton Clearwater Beach.)

The decor and furnishings are the most traditional in the area, so the clientele tends to be older, wealthier, and more subdued than at more modern properties down the beach. With a well-renowned restaurant, sumptuous rooms, and experienced service, this is a good choice for picky travelers with fat budgets. Rates dip below $200 in the low season but can hit four figures for a suite in peak months.

See more information at the company website or book online here.

Best Modern Luxury: Opal Sands Resort

We stayed at Opal Sands Resort at the far southern end of Clearwater Beach soon after it opened. You would never know from walking around it that it’s owned by the same company as the Sandpearl because the design differences are like night and day. This one is a sleek high-rise with bright colors, bold artistic sculptural elements, and modern rooms that will delight the young and hip. You get an attractive pool complex with attentive wait staff, multiple dining outlets and bars, and terrific views. You’ll never search far for an electrical outlet or USB port in your room and you’ll have a balcony for kicking back with a view.

The one drawback here is that you’re on a rocky point instead of facing the sand, but it’s just a few steps down from the pool before you’re strolling on the beach at sunset.

Best Family Resort: Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach

We posted a full review of Hyatt Clearwater Beach not too long ago. We stayed there for the second time, after first rooming there when it had the unfortunate luck of opening during the global financial crisis at the end of 2009. They recently completed a major round of renovations in the rooms, updating furnishings and adding more electrical outlets. The rooms here have always been the big draw though: the majority of them have kitchens (there’s even a small grocery store at street level) and are much larger than others in the area. The Shor American Seafood Grill is excellent and the outdoor seating area gives you views like this:

The pool area here is terrific when occupancy is low, but is woefully inadequate when more than half the 287 rooms are filled. The basic rectangle quickly fills up with kids in vacation season and chairs can become scarce. On the plus side if you’re a parent, this Hyatt has a full kids club with dedicated food menu, a kiddie pool, and supervised activities. Check the official website for more info and check online prices elsewhere here.

Best All-Around Resort: Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach

This is the newest of the Clearwater Beach oceanfront hotels. The year after Opal Sands opened, a new Wyndham Grand celebrated its grand opening in a prime spot right next to the Hyatt. This is a flashy resort with modern sensibilities, including some of the most tricked-out and attractive rooms in the Tampa Bay area. There are some nice subtle touches in them like a shelf by the door (for what you need heading out) and a foot stand in the shower (for shaving legs).

Although it seems a bit odd to have an Asian-themed restaurant as the main dining outlet, it’s a very good one and there’s plenty of seafood. Another more casual outlet is one level down on a public sidewalk. The bars have a few local craft beers on tap, including the one right by the pool.

Alas, the pool here suffers the same problem as most other Clearwater Beach Florida hotels, but worse. There are around 450 room units between two towers here, but the pool in the middle of them is sized for a hotel 1/4 that size, with 200 lounge chairs. You’ll need to pony up more cash to rent one from an independent vendor on the beach instead. Try to avoid weekends in high season if you plan to lounge poolside.

Best Clearwater Value Choice: Springhill Suites by Marriott

Value is a relative term among hotels in Clearwater Beach, where the average rate many weekends is well above $300 in peak months, but the Springhill Suites from Marriott is a reliable choice. It went up on the same lot as a Marriott Residence Inn. These are actually the newest rooms in town at the moment, the latest “demolished old motel to build new high-rise” conversion. The hotel is two streets back from the beach, with the Hyatt blocking most of the views, so don’t book here expecting a panoramic Gulf of Mexico vista. You’re just a block away from the beach though and an easy walk to the pier, restaurants, the marina, and bars along the strip.

You can earn or cash in Marriott points at either one of these sister Clearwater FL hotels and you’ll get all the predictability that comes from a Marriott brand hotel. Nothing that will wow you, but all the bases will be covered and breakfast is included—a rarity in this resort town. Check rates here for Springhill Suites or adjoining Residence Inn.

Resort Fee Rip-offs in Clearwater Beach

If you’re coming to this beach area, be advised that most of the hotels have colluded to overcharge you well beyond the listed rate on booking sites. The dreaded “resort fee” is a staple among Clearwater Beach hotels, with the Wyndham Grand, Opal Sands, Hyatt, and Sandpearl all charging $30 or more per night after taxes for such “extra” items as WiFi, a pool towel, and gym access. So if a price pops up of $309 for an off-season weekday night at Opal Sands, you’ll really end up owing $379 per night when you go to check out because of taxes and this fee for things that should be included in the rates.

If this picking of your pocket multiple times makes you angry, click through the rates before booking to see what’s included. If you do that with Springhill Suites, you’ll notice there’s free WiFi and no resort fee. Same with nearby Pier House 60. Bring the family + your gadgets and enjoy!

Then there’s beach area parking though, which will often run as much as the resort fee on this thin barrier island. Even at the Springhill Suites, for example, your nightly rate may only be $150, but you’ll owe $27 per night for parking if you brought a car. At the Hyatt it’s $28 per night, at the Sandpearl $25 plus tax. The smartest way to get around this is to park in Clearwater City for free and take a short ferry over to the marina if you drove in. Maybe drop off the bags first with the bellman if you have a lot of luggage.

Or if you don’t mind just popping over to the beach for the day and then relaxing elsewhere with a view of the water, you might consider the Fenway Hotel near Dunedin. They’ve got a pool, a roof deck, and are walking distance to eight microbreweries and good restaurants.
