Experience the grandeur of The Gasparilla Inn Boca Grande - where the sun-kissed Gulf Coast meets historic charm. Relax and unwind in the luxury of our iconic Florida inn, located steps away from the sparkling beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.
The Gasparilla Inn is one of the largest surviving resort hotels in the state of Florida. It was constructed originally for wealthy northerners in the early 20th century. During this time period, the state became a travel and vacation destination.
The inn is a two-and-a-half-story hotel building. Its main section was built in 1911, and was expanded in 1912 and again in 1915. The Inn includes ten guest cottages built between 1915 and 1933, two historic sites, a croquet court, and holes five and six of the historic 18-hole golf course both of which were constructed c. 1930 on the grounds at the east side of the Inn.
The Gasparilla Inn is a member of the Historic Hotels of America. It has always greeted guests with warm hospitality, a tranquil atmosphere and a beautiful and picturesque backdrop. Guests are offered a host of spectacular resort amenities and activities while enjoying the pristine beaches of the Gulf Coast. The Inn's "old-Florida" charm is evident upon arrival and it was named The #1 Resort in Florida by Travel + Leisure Magazine.
