Courtyard by Marriott Sandestin at Grand Boulevard
Ranked #4 of 38 Hotels in Destin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 11, 2013

The outside and lobby of hotel look really nice and new. We stayed in their cheapest type of room which was very nice. Good free internet. Downsides - there was no microwave and breakfast costs extra. There is a small little fridge that says its not a fridge. The price is not cheap to me but most places in Destin cost more. Overall you get the feel of a very nice hotel, very nice room, for less money than most places nearby. Oh yeah, the location! Easy to get to, right off big road and walking distance to Grand Boulevard Town Center which is an awesome group of stores, restaurants, and new movie theater.

When we stayed at the Courtyard Sandestin in 2008, we were very impressed with the beautiful location, well maintained facilities and excellent staff. There was no question we would plan to stay there again this May 2013 to attend the beach wedding of our dear friend's youngest daughter. My husband is wheelchair bound and requires an accessible room in addition to some very specific mobility requirements. The staff at the Courtyard Sandestin along with the Marriott ADA Desk advisor, went to the fullest extent to meet our needs. Special preparations were made to ensure we had a safe and fully accessible room to enjoy during our stay. We were so looking forward to our return to the Sandestin area to attend this very special wedding. Unfortunately, after our first full day on the road and halfway to our destination, my husband became ill and was unable to travel any further. It was necessary for us to return home the following day after my husband had stabilized enough for travel. I contacted the Courtyard Sandestin as soon as I knew we would not be able to continue our trip. The level of graciousness and understanding on the part of the staff was outstanding! We fully expected to pay the first night's stay, per their standard policy, due to our last minute cancellation. The Courtyard staff, however, was very compassionate to our circumstances and made an exception. The stress over my husband's illness and missing the wedding, was made a little less due to the Courtyard Sandestin's personal approach to their excellent customer service. I can only hope that we will be able to make it there again in the future. We always look for the Marriott Courtyard chains when traveling and specifically, the Courtyard Sandestin comes with our full wholehearted recommendation!

Room Tip: Marriott is very sensitive to the needs of their mobility challenged guests. Be sure to ask for the...

Very nice Courtyard especially for a near beach location. Room was clean and as expected. The beach access was via a parking pass for the Sandestin resort. Stayed in a suite which was very large. The place of the bed to the A/C could have been better. The bed was way to close to the A/C unit. Good value for the money.
Would return without question

Second time staying at this property. Staff is always friendly and helpful. New lobby boasts a bistro with freshly prepared items and coffee cocktails wine. Nice to have! Plenty of seating. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Location is great for business travelers and shopping/ dining. Public beach access is a short drive. Will stay again

We have stayed across the street at the Residence Inn in years past but decided to give this hotel a try. We experienced a pleasant friendly staff, accommodating, and a very clean hotel. The lobby was recently renovated and it was beautiful. We will definitely return. Thanks Marriott Courtyard!!

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. It's a new hotel nestled next door to the Shops of Grand Blvd where shopping & restaurants galore exist. It's not on the beach but that turns out to be a plus. There is a shuttle that takes you over to the beach that runs every fifteen minutes until 11pm. And then you get the peace & quiet of your hotel when you return. The hotel staff goes above & beyond to meet your needs and make sure your visit is great. There's an excellent free full breakfast served every morning and a full gym for your use. A great pool, all for a very reasonable rate even in high season! I'll definitely be back!

The positive
- newly redone interiors
- beach access at a resort a short drive away
- probably the nicest and most polite staff I have ever come into contact with

The negative
- kind of in a strange location, not near many good restaurants or other things to do
- elevator is EXTREMELY slow
