Arrival/Check In: After a nice long drive from Miami across the Everglades, Bill Lodzinski, director of sales, and I arrived in Naples for our one-night stay at the Edgewater Beach Hotel.

As the only all-suite hotel on the beach in Naples, the Edgewater Beach Hotel sits on the shores of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico just a short distance from the city’s shopping, dining and entertainment options. A bit weary from our travels, we headed over to the check-in desk where attendants greeted us with smiles and, more importantly, a glass of Champagne.

As I walked in, I noticed the layout of the property naturally guides you through the lobby toward the picturesque outdoor pool located directly on the beachfront. The coziness of the lobby fits well with its ornate design that gives guests a sense of classic Floridian luxury. Needless to say, we got a great first impression and ventured to our rooms to see our quarters for the night.

Guest Quarters: The Edgewater Beach Hotel features 125 one- and two-bedroom suites that are all extremely spacious and accommodating to guests. My suite, along with all others, boasted a sectional couch in the living room, a king-sized bed, full refrigerator, microwave and granite breakfast bar.

After I unpacked, I spent some time on the private balcony taking in the amazing view of the Gulf during sunset. Most things in my suite impressed me, but the view was truly the best part of the stay. The hotel’s amenities make it easy to decompress during a business trip, and I regrettably did not get the chance to take advantage of the full menu of massage therapies available in suite upon request.

The complimentary WiFi and iPod docking stations added a nice touch. After a great night’s sleep in my comfortable bed, I woke up a little earlier than usual to take a stroll on the beach, just a short walk away.

Services/Amenities: Our visit at the Edgewater Beach Hotel was short, but I tried to capitalize on everything I could during the limited stay.

Contributing to the hotel’s theme of inescapable wellness, all rooms include custom lighting with all switches dimmer- equipped, in-suite aromatherapy and a PranaSleep mattress with luxury organic bedding. Outside, guests can choose between two heated swimming pools on the beachfront that include complimentary towel and water service on the pool deck. The hotel had the makings of a great family resort with its concierge options for guided kayak tours, fishing, sailing and windsurfing trips along with scuba and snorkel outings. The stay exceeded all expectations, and I would absolutely go back if I had some extra time to spend in Naples.

TOP TAKEAWAYS:

◆ Spend time at the outdoor pools and take advantage of the beach just a short walk away.

◆ The view from the private balcony on the Gulf is even better than advertised.

◆ Relax! The Edgewater Beach Hotel offers so much for you to maximize your well-being and put your mind at ease while traveling.
