The Hampton Inn and Suites in Panama City Beach is located on Front Beach Road, one of the main corridors that run through PCB, not only making it easy to get to but also a great starting point for exploring the area.

Hotel Parking

Parking for the hotel is located across the street in a 3-level parking deck reserved for hotel guests.  (There is a $15 per night fee for parking.) A temperature-controlled walkway (sky bridge) links the parking deck to the second floor of the hotel.

When in the crosswalk, guests have a great view of Front Beach Road which runs parallel to the beach.

Digital Key

Guests who are Hilton Honors members can use the Hilton app to check in, check out, explore the area (digitally), and access their rooms.  (I highly recommend this.  You are more apt to lose your room key than your phone.)

The gulf view rooms have small, but adequate balconies furnished with two chairs and a side table.  Looking to the west, guests can see the pier from the hotel.

The balconies are an ideal spot for starting the day in paradise.  While there, my husband and I spotted dolphins swimming and fish feeding.  (The latter necessitated a trip to the store to purchase a fishing license, rod and reel, and fishing lures.)

On a side note, the Hampton Inn and Suites serves coffee in these cute coffee cups which have different mouths, mustaches, etc. which is great for identifying whose coffee is whose.  Starting the morning on the balcony with a cup of coffee is a great way to start the day at the beach.

The hotel has both an outdoor pool and a hot tub located on the main level.  Towels for guests to use are located by the doors near the dune walkover.

With the beach just steps away from the hotel, it is so easy to go out and enjoy the gulf.  Guests who don’t want to bring their own beach umbrellas or chairs can rent some from FUNPCB between March and October.

For fitness buffs, the hotel does have a small fitness center with a couple of treadmills, free weights, etc.  But why walk on a treadmill when you have the gorgeous white sand beaches?!
