    Henderson Park Inn
    Destin, FL
    #1 in Best Hotels in Destin
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 880 reviewsTripAdvisor (880)

    Located in Destin, Florida, Henderson Park Inn woos romantic travelers with a quiet stretch of beach and an adults-only atmosphere. (Guests must be 25 or older to stay here.) Accommodations at this all-suite property come decorated with neutral colors and seafoam green accents. Standard in-room amenities include flat-screen TVs and minifridges. Plus, some suites offer balconies and excellent views of the Gulf of Mexico. The Henderson Park Inn's daily resort fee covers perks like complimentary beach services and bike rentals, plus a breakfast buffet, picnic-style boxed lunches and a daily happy hour. Dinner at the on-site restaurant, Beach Walk Cafe at Henderson Park Inn, will cost extra. Recent guests especially appreciated the minifridge in the property's lobby, which the staff keeps stocked with complimentary drinks and candy bars. Some guests felt they should be getting more for the cost of staying at this property, though. Also, keep in mind that guests at the Henderson Park Inn receive complimentary access to the amenities at its nearby sister property, The Henderson, A Salamander Beach & Spa Resort

    The Henderson sits along the Emerald Coast in Destin, Florida, adjacent to Henderson Beach State Park. Accommodations embrace the resort's locale, decorated in tones of teal, cerulean, sage, sand and white. All rooms feature views of the pool, gardens or Gulf of Mexico, plus LED TVs, pillow-top mattresses, minibars and balconies. Guests also have access to a wealth of seasonal on-site activities, ranging from holiday craft making and scavenger hunts to beach volleyball tournaments and trivia nights. Those heading to Florida for some rest and relaxation will love the property's Salamander Spa, with 11 treatment rooms, a salon and a fitness center. As far as dining goes, The Henderson is home to five eateries, including an upscale seafood restaurant, a casual beach grill and an ice cream shop. This Preferred-affiliated resort's size and event spaces also make it popular for conferences, weddings and retreats. Plus, iPrefer Hotel Rewards members can use accrued points to pay for rooms. Overall, previous guests enjoyed their stays here, highlighting The Henderson's picturesque location, stylish decor and ample amenities. But remember, a $29 nightly resort fee (which covers beach access, use of beach cruiser bikes and water sports equipment rentals, among other amenities) applies.

    Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa
    Miramar Beach, FL
    #3 in Best Hotels in Destin
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 3010 reviewsTripAdvisor (3010)
    Free WiFi

    You can truly discover the meaning of relaxation at this expansive Miramar Beach, Florida, resort. Visitors particularly enjoy the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort and Spa's monumental size – the property comprises four golf courses, 15 tennis courts, a world-class spa and a long stretch of white sand. The resort provides everything guests need for a fun day at Destin Beach, from beach chairs and sunscreen to volleyball, paddleboards and the beachfront Sand Bar. Meanwhile, this Hilton's guest rooms are beachy chic with bright color palettes and high-end amenities like minifridges, flat-screen TVs and private balconies overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Despite the resort's respectable size, the large number of guests who flock here during peak seasons (spring through summer) can lead to long lines and crowds. No matter the time of year you go, Hilton Honors members can always use or earn points for complimentary perks like free room upgrades.
