Nice place, but avoid the highway A review of Residence Inn Sandestin at Grand Boulevard
I just took my family on vacation to Destin and stayed at the new Residence Inn. We opted for the 2 bedroom and it was large and very well appointed. One MAJOR exception however, is that we were on the first floor and the only one they had available was less than 20 feet from one of the main highways in Destin, 98. Even with double pane windows, the street noise was incredible. If you can avoid it al all, DO NOT stay in a room that faces the highway. Also, avoid room 116. Not only do you get the highway, but you also hear the elevator motors loud and clear. If you have to take that room, get earplugs!
The hotel is still relatively new so they are working out a few kinks. We had interminent water pressure issues throughout our stay. Other than that, the morning breakfast was more than adequate. The staff was very friendly and responsive and access to the Sandestin Resort services is VERY nice.
All in all, a good stay, but I will not stay in a room with a "view" of the highway!
