Florida DoubleTree updates interior, exterior spaces

The DoubleTree Beach Resort by Hilton, 150 feet from the Gulf of Mexico, has completed an extensive renovation project in North Redington Beach, Fla.

The renovation added new hues, enhanced the amenities, and updated the public spaces and guestrooms. The DoubleTree’s exterior facelift has tropical blues and pinks accenting a sugar-white base. The front entrance has azure columns while an open, contemporary lobby has an elegant-but-casual vibe. Shiplap paneling, rope screen and organic ceiling sculpture add a touch of charm, while intricate millwork and custom tile flooring lend an air of sophistication. Beach-inspired artwork is on the wall for a sense of place. 

Other public space edits include a new fitness center, upgraded meeting space and a resurfaced deck around the outdoor pool.

Guestrooms have remodeled bathrooms and updated furnishings along with the addition of refrigerators and microwaves. Most rooms have balconies overlooking the Gulf and many on the non-Gulf side have water views of Boca Ciega Bay.

DoubleTree’s restaurant and tiki hut have been rebranded as Coconut Charlie’s Beach Bar & Grill. Open to locals as well as hotel guests, the venue serves casual bites at the beach bar and a more elevated menu at the grill. Seating is available inside or out on a veranda. Coconut Charlie’s is a beach concept conceived by OTO Development. In addition to its original location at Hilton Garden Inn in nearby St. Pete Beach, Florida, Coconut Charlie’s has locations at Hyatt Place in Panama City Beach, Fla., and Homewood Suites in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

The seven-story, 125-room hotel is owned and operated by OTO Development, which is part of The Johnson Group.
