Looking for beachfront accomodations

Heading to Tampa for a family reunion the weekend be for the 4th of July. Thought we would go early and spend the weekend before at the beach. Was originally thinking of using points at the Hilton, but we will probably use them at the Embassy Suites close to our reunion.

Looking for a hotel either on or across the beach in the St. Petes /Clearwarter / Tarpon Springs area. Will have 2 boys - 14 and 11 with us. We could do anything from a condo to a hotel. Primarily looking to relax for a while.

Suggestions?

Meanwhile, I'm skimming the posts for other similar posts. Hubby says I need to get this booked ASAP, lol! So I'll ask and look at the same time.

On Clearwater Beach, the Hilton is in the perfect location. Directly on the beach, right in the heart of it all by Pier 60. The Hyatt is also right there, but is a little more costly. For more affordable, but still right in great locations is the Travelodge, and Magnuson hotels.

No beaches with hotels/accomodations in Tarpon Springs.

Plenty more hotels right on the beach South of Clearwater Beach, in Treasure Island and St. Pete Beach.

Thanks for the info! We might be able to split points between the Hilton and the Embassy Suites later in the week where other family members are staying. Also looking at the Doubletree North Redington. The points are the same for each.

Comparing the Hilton vs the Doubletree - which would you choose? Hubby says Doubletree because they have queen vs double beds.

Very different areas. Clearwater Beach is a busier, more active beach. Walk to a wide variety of restaurants, beachy bars, shops, marina, and activities.

Redington is a slower paced, less busy beach area. There may be a shop or two, or a restaurant walkable, but you may find a short drive is needed to have any kind of variety of places.
