Clearwater Beach Marriott Suites on Sand Key Hotel Review: This all-suite resort hotel draws lots of families from all parts of the world who like the idea of being in a self-contained environment. Situated on Tampa Bay, it offers everything you could want right at your doorstep---five restaurants, three lounges, lots of recreation and even a string of adjacent shops. With one of the largest pools in West Florida, this place is heaven for kids. And there's an extensive year-round children's program on-site directed by a full-time recreation staff. The 220 two-room suites come with two beds and a soft sofa that converts for more sleeping space. The kitchens include coffee makers, microwaves and refrigerators partially stocked with snacks, cold drinks, mixers and gourmet Godiva coffee. All rooms have a private balcony and a view of water. You'll also enjoy morning newspaper and turndown service. The beaches of Sand Key (an enclave of high-rise condos and suite resorts between St. Petersburg and Clearwater) are just 200 yards away. There's even a trolley service for those who don't feel like hoofing it. The resort also has a bilingual staff and concierge service.
