Another Spring Break has come and gone; we’re still lathering up on the aloe and washing the sand out of our clothes. For Spring Break, families, couples, and co-eds travel around the globe to find some fun in the sun, and the Florida Panhandle is a popular choice. Some go luxury and some go value, but it can sometimes be hard to tell which is which…
A value option is the Crowne Plaza Pensacola Grand. It’s not right on the beach, but enormous room windows provide great views of the Florida landscape, and the sandy beaches aren’t too far from the hotel. Rooms also have great modern amenities, and the hotel has a stocked on-site library. Best of all, rates after often about a cool $120 per night.
On the other end of the spectrum, are the luxury beachfront digs of the WaterColor Inn & Resort. This resort boasts modern in-room amenities, property perks such as pools and bike rentals, and great views. But the standard room costs about four times as much as standard rooms at the Crowne Plaza, at nearly $400 per night. Can you tell which is which? Check out the rooms each hotel offers, take a guess in the comments section below, and then find the answer after the jump!
Option 1 is the pricey-but-stocked WaterColor Inn and Resort, and Option 2 is the Crowne Plaza Pensacola Grand value stay!
