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

I literally could not have asked for more when booking with Holiday Inn Clearwater Beach. Nancy is simply amazing and goes above and beyond to make sure that everyone is satisfied and everything is in place for your big day.Sent on 03/17/2017
From our initial meeting with her a year before the wedding, we knew that she just understood us as a couple with what we wanted to do, and the type of wedding that we wanted to have. We went back once for a reception tasting and were very impressed. If you are unsure because you think "oh it's just hotel food" well think again, because this was some quality stuff. All of the guests raved about how great the food was, including all of the appetizers during cocktail hour. And the view from the balcony of the Duval Ballroom is amazing! Everyone was posting pictures of the sunset, pirate ship, etc and just loved the location.
Nancy was great on follow up - I must have emailed her 1000 times between when we booked and the day of the wedding, and she was always prompt and went out of her way to make sure the day was as stress free as possible. She was great with recommending vendors as well - this is how we found our AMAZING photographer (Brian Idocks - look him up!).
I could go on and on with every little thing that she (and everyone at the hotel) did to help make our day special, but this would be a novel! I just can't thank her and everyone enough for making our day amazing and stress free and just overall the best day of my life. Can't recommend enough!
