Whew, 2020 was something, wasn’t it? While the year didn’t go QUITE the way we expected it to, the beauty of St. Pete Beach and the warm hospitality of our Alden Suites team shone through. We welcomed guests throughout the year and truly enjoyed seeing all of the stories and images you submitted to our photo contest. Here are our top 10 pictures for 2020 and the stories that make them great:

Little Brother chillaxing with Daddy, while Big Brother plays in the sand.
Walking out of the wonderful suite, we were steps from the white sandy beach and the fabulous Cabana Bar, where Chris and Dave helped set the vibe. Such a welcoming and fun spot for our little family.

Our 10th Annual Jolly Ball. Our groups Christmas party we do every year. We usually pick different spots each year.
My friends and I celebrated our 10th Annual Jolly Ball at the Alden Suites. We had such a great time! Literally the view from our room was gorgeous!

Celebrating their 5th birthday at their favorite place to stay on the beach! The Alden always feels like a home away from home.
We had a great stay, our girls loved the ocean front room and are already asking to go back. As always everyone at The Alden welcomed us like family. Can’t wait until we can come back again.

Making waves on girls’ weekend at the Alden!
What is not to love about the Alden? Friendly and accommodating staff, super comfy beds, beach front rooms with incredible views of the expansive sugar sand beach and sparkling water of the Gulf of Mexico, cabana bar with bartenders that make you feel like family and mix up the best tropical libations around, cabana rentals on the beach, two pools, close to restaurants and bars…seriously…we love the Alden!

My son is just getting into photography so he took the opportunity at our stat last weekend to try some new shots. I think this photo is super cool.
Everyone who works there is so nice and helpful. Who doesn’t love a hotel right on the beach?

Family & fun in the bright Florida sun at Alden Suites 🌞
The warm hospitality from the front-desk staff to the housekeeping staff to the bar crew, the many great amenities and, of course,, the super close proximity to the beautiful white sandy beach and Gulf.

My daughter and her best friend finally got to go on vacation together and wanted cute pictures for memories of it. I took this beautiful picture of them and they were so happy with it. The sky looked beautiful and the girls looked amazing. They genuinely were so happy with all the pictures and were beyond happy with their stay there on the beach.

Brinn’s sand bakery, open daily for a sandy treat!
