    Residence Inn: Going Above and Beyond with Customer Service

    We had such a great time in Sandestin and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Residence Inn. But in addition to the fun in the sun that we enjoyed there, I want to tell you about how wonderful the customer service was at the Residence Inn Sandestin at Grand Boulevard, and how much easier it made my trip. As all working moms know, it is never all fun and games. When you own a business you sometimes have to work, even when you’re on vacation! I’ve enjoyed the freedom of this trip, but I have still had to make sure that I meet the deadlines that keep my clients generating leads.…

    Residence Inn Sandestin at Grand Boulevard: Day One

    Sandestin, Florida is located in northwest Florida. With beautiful white sandy beaches and an emerald green ocean, this charming resort community is a popular attraction for tourists, and they are ready for them, with 1,300 accommodations. We decided to forego the fancy resorts on our stay, though, and instead stay in the family-friendly Residence Inn Sandestin at Grand Boulevard. This modern property offers easy access to  and the village of Baytowne Wharf. My first impression was, “What a great location!” Although the property is not on the beach, there are several public beach areas just a short drive away, and the property is within walking distance of Baytowne Wharf, with…

    Walt Disney World

    To say my daughter and I were excited to be at Walt Disney World would be an understatement. I took the advice of a Disney expert and arrived about one hour prior to opening. There were still lines for bag checks and admission, but the wait was minimal. During our day at Disney we used the both the Ferry Boat and the Monorail. Both were comfortable and convenient for use with a little one in a stroller. Upon entering the Magic Kingdom we felt the magic immediately. The excitement I saw in my daughter’s eyes let me know it was going to be a great day. We raced over to…

    LEGOLAND® Florida

    As I planned this trip to LEGOLAND® Florida in Orlando I really didn’t know what to expect. My daughter does not really play with Legos but there was a waterpark and we are both really love the water. I arrived early and was pleasantly surprised at the ease of the parking. As we walked up the front we were greeted with a collection of colorful, larger than life LEGO® figures and signs. The entrance was clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The cleanliness we noted at the entrance was evident throughout the entire park. The day my daughter and I went was a very hot day, so most…
