Ready to lounge by the pool or dip your toes in the sand?
On a recent trip to Marco Island, Florida, I was able to tour the beautifully renovated Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort & Spa. Tour the inside of this resort which is just steps away from the sandy shores of Marco Island.
Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort & Spa reopened its doors following completion of an expansive $60 million interior and exterior transformation. The beloved 310-key resort enjoys an irreplaceable beachfront location on Marco Island, which, with its unique blend of sugar white sand, crystal clear blue waters, award-winning dining and top-rated resorts, is consistently voted among the country’s top islands by TripAdvisor’s coveted Traveler’s Choice® awards.
From their very first steps through the resort’s gleaming, vaulted entryway, newcomers and returning guests alike will hail the Hilton Marco Island for its ‘Island Style, Re-defined’. The 11- story resort welcomes a modern and fresh design aesthetic evocative of the world’s leading boutique hotels. Color schemes marry the soft and calming tones of Marco Island’s unparalleled beach with accents inspired by the limpid blues of the Gulf of Mexico. The smooth, cooling- effect marble lobby, updated with new reception, concierge, and bell desks, brings the outdoors inside with dramatic floor-to-ceiling picture windows overlooking the resort’s expansive and renovated pool area, gently swaying palm trees and beyond, the unmistakable Gulf of Mexico shimmering beneath the warm Florida sun.
Exploring beyond the refreshing new reception area, guests will discover an array of pleasing upgrades throughout the resort. In particular, the guestrooms, all of which feature balconies with breath-taking ocean views, enjoy brand new furnishings and enlarged bathrooms with his and hers vanities. Wi-Fi is ubiquitous throughout the resort and every room is equipped with smartphone charging stations. HiltonHonors® members will enjoy the use of Hilton’s digital key app while all guests will find e-communications with the Concierge desk a breeze by logging into the Hilton Marco Island’s newly installed Kipsu® text-based communication program.
For those who wish to take their Marco Island vacation to the next level, the Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort & Spa offers an extra layer of luxury through its Premier Preferred Collection of one-, two-, and three-room suites with optional connecting rooms and spa-style bathrooms. Premier Preferred guests can select from among seven remodeled poolside rooms and one lanai suite, with spacious patios and direct pool access, and sixteen new two-room suites with sprawling ocean vistas. The resort also features a Presidential suite that offers the pinnacle of luxury resort accommodations.
With generous indoor and outdoor seating featuring those breathtaking ocean views and unforgettable watercolor sunsets, The Deck at 560 Bar & Restaurant focuses on local, sustainable seafood and produce, rotating with seasonal ingredients and herbs and vegetables sourced from an onsite, organic kitchen garden. At the newly installed Brazilian Walnut deck area, The Deck at 560 serves inventive, proprietary cocktails, many infused with fresh Florida citrus juices, and draft beer from local Florida breweries. For groups of up to 10 guests, private and semi-private dining options are also available in a secluded section with its own sensual, indoor fire pit.
We were treated to a special menu prepared by the chef which included these lobster corn dogs, lobster flatbread, cobia wings, and delicious cocktails. The space is beautiful, and there is plenty of room to relax with your family and friends.
