Panama City Beach, FL – The St. Joe Company is pleased to announce the opening of the Hilton Garden Inn at Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, constructed near the corner of Venture Crossings Boulevard and West Bay Parkway at the entrance of the VentureCrossings Enterprise Centre.

The new hotel offers 143 guest rooms, as well as meeting space, a pool and fitness center and the Garden Grille & Bar, a full-service restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week to ensure all guests are well taken care of. The restaurant will be available to those living and working in the local community, as well as visitors and hotel guests. Outdoor patio and fireside seating is available in addition to the inside dining areas.

The Hilton Garden Inn’s site at the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) makes it a convenient option for business and leisure travelers, and is only a short drive to Panama City Beach’s world famous white-sand beaches and the Pier Park area. The hotel offers enhanced food and beverage options, modern and contemporary designs, and Hilton’s hallmark bright and airy décor, along with exceptional service.

“We’re very pleased to partner with Hilton in opening this new property,” says St. Joe Company Vice President of Resort Operations Andrew Czarnecki. “The ease of access to the airport, along with the quality of the Hilton Garden Inn and the amenities it brings to the area make it a wonderful asset for visitors and the community. This is the first in a series of new properties we’re working to open, and we’re building our reputation on the quality of our hospitality service and offerings, whether that’s here at the airport location, beachfront, adjacent to the Panama City Beach Sports Complex or at one of our resorts or marinas.”

The Hilton Garden Inn is now open and accepting guests, with a formal Grand Opening ceremony being planned for a later date.
