Sandestin Hotels Invite Travelers to Extend Their Summer Vacation

The Courtyard and Residence Inn Sandestin at Grand Boulevard Offer a New Package for One More Chance at Fun in the Sun

DESTIN, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 07/18/14 -- No other season can compare to summer when it comes to inspiring adventure. And while fall looms just around the corner, two Emerald Coast hotels are doing their part to stave off the inevitable. Between August 1 and September 6, 2014, the Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard and the Residence Inn Sandestin at Grand Boulevard are encouraging travelers to soak up the last days of summer with their new BEACH & BACK TO SCHOOL PACKAGE. Offering stylish accommodations, stellar shopping opportunities and enviably sunny beaches, the package will make travelers feel like summer has only just begun.

No matter which renovated property guests book, they can look forward to indulging in two of the most comfortable hotels in Destin, FL. The Courtyard Sandestin features contemporary guest rooms, a tech-friendly lobby and enhanced amenities, while the Residence Inn Sandestin is a favorite among travelers with its fully-equipped Destin, Florida suites and pet-friendly policies. Both properties also boast exciting nearby attractions like championship golf and white-sand beaches.

Of course, the package promises to keep visitors busy with the area's other favorite sport: shopping. Whether guests are on the hunt for kids' school clothes or a fall wardrobe for work, the package's $50 gift card to Silver Sands Premium Outlets and VIP Coupon Book voucher will certainly come in handy. And the tax-free shopping between August 1 and 3 is just one more incentive to hit the outlets, where shoppers scour the racks of everything from Armani and Saks Fifth Avenue, to Nike and Under Armour.

To get guests primed for their day at the shops, the package also includes breakfast for two each morning at both Destin, FL beach hotels. Visitors can tuck in to a healthy, satisfying menu of fruit, eggs, sandwiches, Starbucks coffee and smoothies at the Courtyard's Bistro, or savor the satisfying hot breakfast buffet at the Residence Inn. And after a day of retail therapy, guests can again refuel at either property. The Courtyard offers a dinner menu and evening bar, while guests of the Residence Inn Sandestin, an extended stay hotel, can sip and mingle at two weekly hosted evening socials.

With accommodations that are as stylish as the shopping, and a full range of nearby activities that capitalize on the Florida sun, these hotels near Miramar Beach, FL are dream destinations for any summer adventurer. And their BEACH & BACK TO SCHOOL PACKAGE just makes the dream easier than ever to attain.

Rates for the BEACH & BACK TO SCHOOL PACKAGE start at $129. Travelers can secure the package by using the promotional code I26 when booking reservations.
