Hilton receives Readers’ Choice Award

Special to The Sun

Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa is the recipient of the 2016 ConventionSouth Readers’ Choice Award.

This is the seventh time the resort has received this honor. Previous years were 1999, 2000, 2005, 2006, 2012 and 2013.

“We are thrilled ConventionSouth readers have nominated and voted Hilton Sandestin Beach as one of the best meeting sites in the South,” said Gary Brielmayer, Hilton Sandestin Beach general manager. “The value in receiving this prestigious recognition is that it comes from top meeting professionals demanding the highest level of customer service and quality facilities, and they have determined Hilton Sandestin Beach displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they desire.”

Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa is among 250 convention and visitor bureaus (CVBs), meeting facilities and hotels located across the South to receive this year’s Readers’ Choice Award. Throughout the year, meeting professionals nominated the meeting sites they believe provide exemplary service for group events. The nominated properties were then compiled into an online ballot where meeting professionals were asked to vote for the best of the best. More than 4,000 voters participated this year in the selection process.

In addition to its more than 40,000 square feet of indoor meeting space, gulf views and beachfront location, Hilton Sandestin Beach offers an array of amenities to create the ideal meeting experience, including award-winning restaurants, spa and fitness center, recreational activities such as golf and tennis, and miles of sugar white sandy beaches. Meeting planners also enjoy the convenience of modern technological capabilities and 20,000 square feet of outdoor event space and endless beachside opportunities.

Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa was also recognized this year by ConventionSouth as one of the "Top Resorts with a View." The resort has also been recognized within the last year by awards including the "Best of" from Meetings Today and Award of Excellence from Corporate & Incentive Travel magazine.
