The new Wyndham Grand opened on Clearwater Beach in January 2017. Offering 343 guest rooms in two towers with ocean or intracoastal views and free Wi-Fi, the hotel is steps from Pier 60 and boating activities. An outdoor pool overlooks the beach, and guests can enjoy all-day dining at the hotel’s Asian-fusion Ocean Hai organic restaurant. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., the menu includes sushi and sashimi. A lobby cafe, Eskpades, provides coffee and snacks from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Poolside dining is also available at DocK’s Pool Bar & Grill between 11 a.m. and 9 p.m. Room options provide accommodations for two to four with a king or two queen beds. Rooms feature mini fridges and flat-screen TVs, with suites also including sofa beds in living areas and a dining area.
The best part about this hotel? The Winter the Dolphin-themed guestrooms! The six aquatic-themed rooms offer one king bed and a bunk bed for families of four.

My wife and I stayed for just 3 nights. We absolutely loved it! Beautiful property and access to the beach if fantastic. Pool area is so comfortable and relaxing! located in the heart of Clearwater! Rooms were spacious, we had a king with a beautiful balcony overlooking the pool and the ocean.
Do not get suckered into presentation. As always no such thing as a 60 minute experience. However, Lea was absolutely the best sales rep ever in 12 years of experience. She was not pushy, did provide information not previously known and for slightly more than two hours made the experience tolerable. Hotel has only 102 owner rooms explaining the difficulty in reserving. Absolutely the classiest Wyndham property in America, even nicer than Oceanside CA which is also by the pier. Resort staff is as advertised. Attentive, professional and must say all the pre arrival, same day and subsequent texts are first class. Kelly at the pool has a bad attitude and at the wrong property. Austin at the front desk did an amazing job, repeat Lea in Sales was a diamond and did earn 10 🌟 s.
