Hilton Sandestin honored with awards

Special to The Sun

Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa was recently the recipient of the 2017 ConventionSouth Readers’ Choice Award and the 2017 Meeting’s Today Best of Award. This is the eighth time the resort has received the ConventionSouth Readers’ Choice Award and the second year to have earned the Meeting’s Today Best of Award.

Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa is among just 250 convention and visitor bureaus (CVBs), meeting facilities and hotels throughout the south to receive ConventionSouth’s Readers’ Choice Award. Throughout the year, meeting professionals nominated those 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.

Similarly, Meetings Today opens voting for planners to determine the best hotels and resorts for meetings in North America sorted by region (East, MidAmerica, South and West). Planners may submit one ballot per region.

“It is a real honor to receive this recognition from readers of two of the industry’s most prestigious publications,” said Gary Brielmayer, Hilton Sandestin Beach general manager. “These awards come from top meeting professionals who demand the highest level of customer service and the best facilities. I’m proud they determined our team here at Hilton Sandestin Beach displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service they desire.”

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 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 a Top Adventure Resort, and within the last year won the Platinum Choice Award from Smart Meetings and the Award of Excellence from Corporate & Incentive Travel magazine.
