Henderson Park Inn Receives Conde Nast Johansens Award for Excellence
We are excited to report that the Henderson Park Inn in Destin, FL has been honored with a major award from Conde Nast Johansens, the leading reference guide for luxury travelers. Each year, Conde Nast releases its Awards for Excellence, which are designed to “acknowledge, reward, and celebrate excellence” across their recommended properties. This year, the Henderson Park Inn received the coveted award for Best Luxury Value.
Selections for the Conde Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence are made based on consumer votes. Countless Conde Nast readers and travel professionals cast their vote online throughout 2017 in a variety of categories. The Henderson Park Inn competed against hotels from all around the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean to win the award for Best Luxury Value.
Here at the Henderson Park Inn, we are incredibly humbled by this recognition and we want to thank everyone who took the time to vote for our hotel.
What Conde Nast Loves About the Henderson Park Inn
In their profile of the Henderson Park Inn, Conde Nast Johansens writes that our adults only hotel is the perfect place to enjoy “the natural masterpiece” that is Florida’s Emerald Coast. The Henderson Park Inn was praised for its spectacular location “hugging the borders” of Henderson Beach State Park, which features 6,000 feet of pristine shoreline beside the emerald green water of the Gulf of Mexico. Conde Nast notes that the Henderson Park Inn’s appealing “New England vibe” (complete with a “Cape Cod design…wood shingle exterior, and Adirondack chairs”) is quite appropriate, given that the city of Destin was founded by a fishing captain from Connecticut.
The Henderson Park Inn was singled out for Best Luxury Value because of its superior accommodations and amenities. As Conde Nast notes, the majority of our suites face the Gulf of Mexico and feature lovely balconies, oversized picture windows, and whirlpool baths. Conde Nast was especially impressed with our welcome gifts, which include fruit, fresh flowers, wine, and stocked complimentary mini-refrigerators.
Conde Nast also shined a spotlight on our award-winning onsite restaurant, Beach Walk Cafe. In the write-up, Beach Walk Cafe was recognized as “one of the state’s finest” restaurants and lauded for its “incredibly romantic” atmosphere, whether you dine inside, on the veranda, or right on the beach. Conde Nast notes that “fish and seafood are a big player” on the Beach Walk Cafe’s menu, but “steak is in no short supply.”
