Sheraton Sand Key Resort
Sheraton's Spot on the Key
On my business trip to Clearwater Beach, I was actually looking for an off brand hotel to stay for an inexpensive amount. When I looked however, the corporate rate at the Sheraton Sand Key this evening was tremendous. From the brief period of time where it was still light out, you could tell that this is a beautiful place to spend one night, or many nights. The white sand beach is beautiful out the back door, as is the pool area.
As a platinum member of SPG, I was upgraded to a great suite overlooking the pool and the beach, and unfortunately I did not focus my camera correctly, so you will not get to see how beautiful the sunset was from my balcony. The room itself is very spacious, with a couch and two chairs in the living area, and a nice king size bed in the bedroom. The room has also been upgraded to include a 42" flat panel TV with HD. There is also a living area with a table and four chairs to have a meal if you like.
Overall, the bed is very comfortable with the sweet sleeper bed. If you are a platinum member, you also get free breakfast, gym, and wireless.
I would definitely come back for a personal vacation if our trips lead us to Tampa.
BAD PLACE FOR A WEDDING
We are planning a wedding of 200 guests and stayed at the Sheraton Sand Key to ensure that this was truly the location we wanted to host our wedding. We met with “Bonnie”, the so called ‘Manager of Events’ on Mar9th, 2008. When we initially met w/ her she did not introduce herself, shake our hands, or even say “congratulations” on our wedding engagement. There was only a 2 page brochure of prices (literally). When we asked about other features of the wedding, catering, and aspects of the event she listed prices off the top of her head as we walked around the property. When I asked for them in writing (several times), she said they did not have that avail. The hotel was clearly not in favor of hosting special events such as weddings or wedding receptions. As a direct result of the lack of assistance and negative attitude of “Bonnie” – event manager of Sheraton Sand Key, we will not be hosting our 200+ guest wedding at this location.
We were extremely unsatisfied at our stay at the Sheraton Sand Key. We stayed the weekend at this location so that we could meet with “Bonnie”, the so called ‘Manager of Events’ to plan our wedding at this location. She had no customer service or personality at all. She went out of her way to make us feel Uncomfortable. We drove 1.5 hours to meet with her and she made us feel like we were ‘wasting’ her time, she was rude, useless, & wasted our time.
Please do not waste your’s, the Sheraton Sand Key is NOT a good place to have a wedding or wedding reception!
Unique Quality: POOR Customer Service - Bad Place for a Wedding!!!
Directions: Clearwater Beach
Perfect location/great hotel over on Sand Key
This is your basic Sheraton beachfront resort. It has all the accommodation and accessories that you'd expect.
The "family rooms" are especially spacious and comfortable for a family of up to 4. You won't be falling over each other here. Nice balconies on every room.
Unique Quality: The hotel is close to Clearwater Beach, yet it's still far enough away. There aren't any cruddy hotels or hippie beach shack shops around this hotel. They have a huge private beach, and things are just generally a little quieter across the bay on Sand Key.
Directions: From Clearwater Beach, follow FL699 heading south. Cross the causeway to Sand Key. The Sheraton is the first hotel after a large city park, on the right.
