Join the #ALDENWOW50 Family Reunion this November!

Fifty years ago in 1969, Robert and Gennifer Renfrow purchased a small beachfront motel called the Alden. The Renfrow family still proudly owns and operates the Alden Suites Beachfront Resort and we are celebrating this major milestone with a year-long Golden Anniversary campaign. We kicked off the year with some major philanthropic giving, supporting our local community with large donations and hands-on work to make St. Pete Beach a better place.

Earlier this year, we shared the story of how the Alden grew from a beachside motel to the full-service resort that she is today. Our celebratory video series has taken guests on a trip through the way-back machine to the Alden in the 1960’s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Guests are sharing their stories all year round through our #ALDENWOW50 social media campaign, plus we’ve unveiled a new mural and lots of special Golden Giveaways. It all leads up to the big Alden Family Reunion set for November 9, where longtime guests will gather from all over the world to celebrate the big anniversary.

The theme of the party will be “Summer of Love”, and we’ll all be decked out in our hippie-inspired best: bell bottoms, embroidered shirts, headbands, and trippy tie-dye. We’ll have a VW van full of treats, delicious food and drinks, and 1960’s inspired decor. The band “Messenger” will play live music from the 1960s to the present day, and we’ll dance and celebrate into the night with Alden guests and supporters who’ve become a part of the family.

  1. I just watched the Alden 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, & 1990s videos on the blog. What a FANTASTIC review. As a native St. Petersburg resident, it sure brought back great memories.
    I sure love going to Happy Hours at the Cabana Beach Bar now. And the facilities on the property have never looked better. I can’t wait to celebrate the Alden WOW 50 Year Anniversary this November 9th.

  2. Me and the girls wanted a unique long weekend getaway to escape the cold Ohio winter. We took an early flight and arrived to the most wonderful reception staff! The stowed our bags, gave us great direction for places to go have breakfast and and nice cool drink! We were able to have some marvelous coffee from the lobby coffee station,go enjoy the beach and even nap for awhile before our room was ready- hey we had been up since 4 am for our flight! Our oceanfront suite was sparkling clean and very comfortable. The Alden is a great resort – from lobby to the gulf front bar,pools and it is a beautifully kept property. This place takes great pride in making your stay wonderful experience. The Alden delivers on its promise to WOW you! We have made 3 trips and are already talking about #4!
