Resort has two golf courses
Charges apply for in-room Wi-Fi access
A compelling reason for guests to stay at this Renaissance branch is that it boasts not one, but two championship golf courses. Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus co-designed the King & Bear Golf Course, which sits about 6 miles away and is framed with Bermuda grass and Loblolly pines. The par-72 Slammer & Squire Golf Course, however, is located on-site and features holes orchestrated by architect Bobby Weed and inspired by golf gods "Slammin'" Sammy Snead and Gene "the Squire" Sarazen. As for accommodations, each room is outfitted with perks like a desk, minifridge, flat-screen TV and wet bar. Still, some previous guests express disappointment with the steep $9.95 per-day charge for in-room Wi-Fi. On the upside, the resort does offer complimentary shuttle service to and from St. Augustine, Florida's downtown area, making it easy for visitors to explore nearby attractions. Plus, the hotel offers three on-site restaurants, as well as close proximity to one of the best-loved city eateries, Murray Bros. Caddyshack Restaurant. The tourist stop is owned by "Caddyshack" actor Bill Murray and his brothers. And another bonus: Marriott Bonvoy members can accrue or cash in points here.

For those not schooled in golf history, the 'Slammer' is in honor of Sam Sneed, the 'Squire' is for Gene Sarazen, the 'King' is Arnold Palmer, and the 'Bear' is Jack Nicklaus. Palmer and Nicklaus collaborated in designing their course.



In a very quiet area and adjacent to the World Golf Hall of Fame, this vibrantly colorful hotel is popular with golfers and corporate groups alike. ... Built in 1998, the guest room decor offers light wood furnishings, gold and red hues and pillow-top mattresses.
