The 2018 Annual Meeting – Hotel Info

Hotel Information

Surrounded by the powder white sand and crystal blue waters of Clearwater Beach, the AAA Four-Diamond Sandpearl Resort blends the natural beauty of Florida’s Gulf Coast with premium comforts and warm, personalized service. From the coastal-inspired décor in our guest rooms and suites to Clearwater Beach’s only Four-Diamond restaurant (Caretta on the Gulf), you’ll find signature amenities around every corner and relaxation reflected in every detail.


Accommodations are available in The Vinegar Institute (VI) room block at a special group rate.

It is essential to identify yourself as part of VI so that you will be placed in the VI room block. Booking your room in the VI block is extremely important because the Institute, on behalf of the members, has committed revenue to the hotel for a specified number of hotel rooms. We appreciate your willingness to assist us in avoiding unnecessary penalties by booking in the meeting hotel and identifying yourself as part of the VI group when making your reservation.

To make hotel reservations, you must call 866/384-2995 or online click here.

Please identify yourself as part of VI. The room rate is $309.00 plus a $15 resort fee per night single or double occupancy. All rooms are subject to 13% state and local taxes. All room reservations must be guaranteed with a major credit card. The credit card will not be charged until the guest checks out of the hotel. Cancellations and changes must be made directly with the hotel up to 7 days prior to arrival date to avoid penalties. Check-in time is 4:00 p.m. and check-out is 11:00 a.m.

Plan to make your hotel reservations now as VI’s Meeting coincides with Spring Break. (Room reservations at the above-discounted rate are available on a first-come, first-serve basis in the VI block. Once the block is full, rooms and room rates are based on availability.)
