For the first time in over a decade, Navarre Beach travelers have the opportunity to stay at a hotel! Since the destruction of the Holiday Inn by Hurricane Ivan, Navarre Beach visitors have had to depend on vacation rentals and condos for lodging. Navarre SpringHill Suites, a Marriott property, opening in 2017 in the quiet beach community. The 161 room layout including an indoor and outdoor pool, on-site restaurant, and space for events, is a needed addition to the growing Navarre Beach tourism community.
Currently residing at 8375 Gulf Blvd, the Navarre SpringHill Suites takes the place of the old Holiday Inn. Once a popular destination for the area, Hurricane Ivan damaged the Holiday Inn hotel beyond repair, leaving debris in its place. The removal of wood pilings at the site delayed the construction of the SpringHill Suites, but after its completion, locals and tourists alike are excited about the implications on the travel and tourism industry.
With few accommodations on Navarre Beach offering nightly rentals, quick trips to the beach have been difficult. With world-renowned beach destinations including Pensacola Beach, Destin, and Okaloosa Island less than 30 minutes away, Navarre Beach’s support of this luxury hotel is necessary for the growth of the industry. An increasing number of dining, attractions, and things to do in Navarre Beach are already pushing more vacationers to choose the area over nearby destinations. A large beach-side hotel only adds to the value of Navarre Beach by offering visitors the opportunity for shorter stays and last-minute getaways. The large meeting space will also provide a centrally located spot for business conventions, trade shows, weddings and more, expanding the reach of traveler demographics.
