Perfect Beach Wedding
Where do I even start?! Finding the perfect location was important to my husband and I. I wanted to have any area for our guests to enjoy the our beautiful sunset and weather outside but have the reception inside, considering Florida's crazy weather patterns. When we discovered the Holiday Inn Clearwater Beach, I knew from the first meeting with Nancy and seeing the Duval Ballroom, this was the perfect place for us. We had the ceremony over looking the gulf on the pool deck and the reception in the Duval ballroom. It was so convenient having everything in one spot. Nancy was always responsive to my emails and offered so many helpful suggestions that I would have never thought of. We never planned a wedding before, and it was so overwhelming. The packages here made wedding planning effortless. The food was delicious, service was in a timely manner, and staff was so nice. Our day was absolutely perfect and the Duval Ballroom was so beautiful. I would strongly recommend the Holiday Inn Clearwater Beach to any bride or groom looking in the Clearwater/St. Pete area. Thank you Nancy and Holiday Inn! You made our dream wedding a reality.Sent on 05/24/2019

We had our destination wedding at the Holiday Inn Clearwater Beach Duval Ballroom in July 2018. It was such a great experience working with Nancy and all of the staff at the Holiday Inn. We had our ceremony on the lower pool deck and our reception in the Duval Ballroom. This is really a hidden gem on Clearwater Beach. Much of my vendor team had not done weddings here and were so impressed. The views and accommodations were fantastic. The location is right on the water, so they don't technically have a 'beach' but our ceremony and reception was right at the water's edge and was just picturesque. We had 80 people travel to Florida from Ohio for our wedding and many of them stayed at the Holiday Inn also. Everyone loved the hotel, pool, restaurant, game room, and everything about the wedding venue. The outdoor veranda of the Duval was so amazing to watch the sunset and even partake in the daily 'sunset shot' from Jimmy's Fish House. The staff at the Duval ballroom was fantastic. The food was good and came out in a very timely manner. The bartenders were great. The venue included all serving staff, tables, chairs, linens, serving ware, chair covers and sashes making it super easy to plan! Nancy has been the event coordinator here for many many years and it shows. She is cool calm and collected and knows exactly what she's doing to keep everything moving with the timeline. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone for a wedding or any event.Sent on 08/11/2018

The wedding at the Hilton was amazing. The waitstaff was so attentive, we absolutely loved them. The coordinator Courtney was very helpful, and remembered all the personal touches my daughter requested. It was simply all we hoped for. Dan (banquet) and Mike service) were especially amazing and our favorites.Sent on 11/10/2017
