With so many hotels in the area, deciding where to stay in Destin FL can feel like an overwhelming task. Fortunately, the Henderson Park Inn is here to help! We have put together a few handy tips for finding the perfect hotel for your next couple’s getaway in Destin.

1. Read Reviews

Online reviews are the most important resources vacation planners have at their disposal. Rather than relying on word of mouth or a write up in a travel magazine, you can see hundreds of reviews from actual guests who have stayed at the hotels you’re interested in. After perusing five to ten reviews on TripAdvisor, you should have a pretty good idea of what to expect when you stay at the hotel in question.

We are extremely proud to report that the Henderson Park Inn has a perfect five star average on TripAdvisor. More than 680 of our guests have given us the highest possible rating. Additionally, the users of TripAdvisor and About.com have voted our adults only inn the most romantic hotel in America! The Henderson Park Inn was also recently awarded the 2018 Conde Nast Award of Excellence.

2. Investigate Beach AccessWoman relaxing in a beach chair at the Henderson Park Inn in Destin.

Another factor to consider when choosing where to stay in Destin FL is access to the beach. The Emerald Coast is world famous for its breathtaking beaches, which feature sugar white sand and crystal clear water. As you research potential hotels, be sure to check how far away they are from the water and whether beach access is included with your stay.

The Henderson Park Inn boasts a fantastic location right on the Gulf of Mexico. Guests at our inn will enjoy exclusive access to our lovely private beach. We provided everything you need to kick back and relax in the sand, including complimentary beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels. Our bed and breakfast is also adjacent to Henderson Beach State Park, which is home to over 6,000 feet of gorgeous shoreline.

3. Find Out What Amenities are Included

When it comes to picking a hotel, it is important to know what amenities are included. Being nickel and dimed for a variety of “extras” that you thought were complimentary is never fun. Before booking a room at a potential hotel, make sure that you know exactly what features are included with your stay.

Here at the Henderson Park Inn, we offer an all-inclusive getaway, except for dinner. Every day begins with a complimentary breakfast that features bacon, ham, sausage, biscuits and gravy, shrimp and grits, grillades, potatoes, oatmeal, cereal, pastries, muffins, yogurt, fruit, Bloody Marys, mimosas, made-to-order eggs/omelets, made-to-order waffles, and even more delicious food.
