CLEARWATER BEACH, Fla., March 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With Spring Training 2016 now in full swing in Clearwater, baseball fans seeking four-diamond accommodations during downtime are in for an exciting double play.
Two luxury Clearwater Beach hotels are lining up to welcome followers of the Philadelphia Phillies and Toronto Blue Jays with thoughtful amenities in tranquil surroundings. Enthusiasts can check out America's favorite pastime in style and convenience when booking rooms or suites at the all-new Opal Sands Resort and its sister property, Sandpearl Resort. Both hotels are less than 7.5 miles from Bright House Field, the temporary home of the Phillies, and Florida Auto Exchange Stadium, where the Blue Jays plan to pack the stands. The New York Yankees training camp at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa is about 22 miles away.
Eight other big league teams included in the Grapefruit League will play their practice games within a two-hour drive of Opal Sands and Sandpearl: Atlanta Braves in Lake Buena Vista, Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins in Fort Myers, Baltimore Orioles in Sarasota, Detroit Tigers in Lakeland, Houston Astros in Kissimmee, Tampa Bay Rays in Port Charlotte and Pittsburgh Pirates in Bradenton.
Enthusiasts headed to the Clearwater area through April can catch their favorite players working out, signing autographs and showcasing their talents on the field before the official Major League Baseball season begins. Whether rooting for the "home" team or simply enjoying Florida's warm outdoors, guests of both hotels will feel right at home.
Opal Sands features new gulf-front rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows and large balconies where fans can strike the perfect balance of relaxation and enthusiasm. Spacious pillow-top beds with luxurious linens allow the ultimate night's slumber with personalized turndown service, while flat-panel TVs and Wi-Fi can keep guests well-plugged in to all of the action and stats. Spacious bathrooms, in-room safes and under-the-counter mini-refrigerators complement a lively beach-chic atmosphere.
Sandpearl rooms and suites boast spectacular views of the coastline, Mandalay Bay or Gulf of Mexico. Warm tones and furnishings complete the hotel's relaxed beachside setting, while turndown service and twice daily housekeeping offer a personalized touch. Guests will appreciate movies on demand with flat-panel HDTVs and high-speed Wi-Fi. Plush bedding, luxurious bathrobes, in-room safes and mini bars complete a home-run stay.
The Opal Collection properties sport zero-entry pools, full-service spas and an array of dining experiences so visitors don't have to sacrifice living the high life when following their favorite teams on the road.
