Stayed for business. The hotel was functional and clean and the staff were helpful. It is a little dated in parts but it does seem to be undergoing renovation. There are a selection of restaurants, sushi which was good, didn't try the steak. The bar was ok and breakfast was again ok. My main gripe was the fact we seemed to be sharing the hotel with condo residents who turned the bar area into a TV lounge for themselves and applauded when some bar patrons left after talking over their movie night. And this might be the problem, the hotel feels a little schizophrenic.
Perhaps that is the nature of Destin.
