New Hotel Openings in Florida for Summer 2016

Following yet another record-breaking year in visitation, Florida continues to expand and invest in new
hotels and renovations, to meet growing tourism demands.

“It is very encouraging seeing so many new and refurbished properties across Florida,” said Colin Brodie, Director UK & Ireland, Visit Florida. “It is a testament to the ever growing demand for quality accommodation in the state and gives visitors an even wider choice of accommodations to choose from.”

Visitors this summer can now book and enjoy some of Florida’s newest developments:
St Pete / Clearwater
Opal Sands Resort (February 2016) – the only hotel on Clearwater Beach that offers panoramic views of
the Gulf of Mexico and St Pete’s spectacular sunsets from every room. Each of the 230 rooms, curving
along the white sandy coastline, has floor-to-ceiling windows and large balconies offering dramatic views.
