Clearwater Marine Aquarium Unveil Newly-Renovated, Waterfront Hotel

Page Development Group and Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA) are proud to introduce Clearwater Beach’s newest family-and-eco-friendly hotel, Winter the Dolphin’s Beach Club, located at 655 S. Gulfview Blvd.

Sitting on America’s number one beach, this dolphin and marine life themed hotel features the inspiring dolphin made famous by the Dolphin Tale movies – Winter.

Part of the Ascend Hotel Collection portfolio by Choice Hotels, Winter the Dolphin’s Beach Club comes to life after an extensive renovation and rehaul of an existing Choice hotel with a focus on sustainability and conservation.

“We are beyond excited to open this hotel to guests and offer them a very special experience that ties in with the mission of Clearwater Marine Aquarium,” said Page Development Group President Steve Page.

The 91-room beachfront hotel boasts an outdoor pool with beach cabana rentals, as well as two on-site restaurants, Cabanas Coastal Grill and Cabanas Beachside, serving up fresh seafood, American fare and specialty cocktails, providing ample opportunities for guests to relax and connect.

After a long day in the warm Florida sunshine, guests can retreat to their room and enjoy all the comforts of home, including complimentary WiFi, a refrigerator and microwave, as well as a Keurig coffee maker and in-room coffee.

As part of Page Development’s Group passion for environmental protection and commitment to sustainable practices, Winter the Dolphin’s Beach Club is CMA-certified with measures to protect marine life including sea turtle safe lighting, the elimination of single-use plastics, and special window treatments to reduce energy use while minimizing the harmful effects of sun glare off of the Gulf.

“We’re so excited to invite guests to see Winter at our facility and then have them stay in this fabulous and environmentally friendly, Winter and marine life themed hotel.

We’re confident that families will be attracted by the newness of the hotel, its commitment to sustainability, and the unique learning opportunities of immersive marine life education,” said CEO, Frank Dame.

Not only will guests feel good about the sustainability of their stay at Winter the Dolphin’s Beach Club, they will be contributing to Clearwater Marine Aquarium’s non-profit mission.

Proceeds from each room night will go directly to the care, education, research and conservation of marine mammals through the work of CMA.

Winter the Dolphin’s Beach Club is managed by Tampa-based McKibbon Hospitality, with hospitality veteran Adam Winning recently appointed as the hotel’s General Manager.

Adam brings more than a decade of hospitality and leadership experience to the role, having most recently served as the General Manager of Aloft Jacksonville Airport.
