With summer winding down, it’s time to book that last minute vacation. The good news is that Marriott wants to hook you up with some amazing Florida travel deals.
The hotel company got together a few travel-obsessed writers to explore, experience and report on the very best of what the Sunshine State has to offer.
It came down to this: 8 Bloggers, 10 Cities and 13 Marriott Resorts.
First, let me introduce you to the crew, starting with yours truly:
From the powder white sand beaches of the east coast to the sensational sunsets of the west coast and all of the adventure to be discovered in between — we reported on it all. I had the task of covering Florida’s west coast.
These resorts on Florida’s west coast are offering great end-of-summer travel deals:
The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club: a luxurious hotel with a storied history. The Mediterranean-revival building overlooks Tampa Bay and a marina that plays home to a few fancy yachts, art galleries and charming seaside cafes.

Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort & Spa: a gorgeous waterfront hotel with more than 700 rooms (many with water-view balconies) on a to-die-for stretch of white sand beach. Think thatched-roof tiki huts, swaying hammocks and a pool with a view that will rock your socks off.

Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa: located in Fort Myers and surrounded by 85 acres of tropical paradise. I couldn’t help but notice that this waterfront hotel would be the perfect place to host a destination wedding.
