Clearwater Beach Hotel Offers Eco-Friendly Accommodations

The Wyndham Garden Clearwater Beach Hotel has completed a multimillion-dollar renovation to make its rooms hypoallergenic and eco-friendly.

The hotel, which is located at the southern point of Clearwater Beach at 691 South Gulfview Boulevard, is comprised of 110 guest rooms, all of which were made hypoallergenic.

“In the guest rooms, we removed all original carpet and all wallpaper, and drywall was replaced with a hypoallergenic product and the floor covering is now vinyl wood plank,” says Nigel Duffett, general manager of the Wyndham Garden Clearwater Beach Hotel. “The flooring is 100 percent recycled and green-certified and all other products we use are green-friendly as well.”

According to Duffett, the complete renovation cost more than $2.5 million, however he says it was important to give guests something they have been looking for.

“Our guests are looking for ultra-clean guest rooms and this is where the project started,” he says. “As we planned changes toward this aim, including the flooring, it also became clear that an increasing number of guests are requesting a hypoallergenic environment in which to sleep. An added benefit is that not only are these products better for our guests' health, but also to that of our planet.”

Duffett says special attention was given to bedding. All guest rooms feature mattresses that are made from organic cotton and wool as well as latex, which will repel bacteria, mold and mildew.

Duffett says overall the investment was well worth the money.

“We took a much-loved friend on Clearwater Beach, and transformed her into a beautiful swan in paradise.”
