    Ft Myers Beach! Recommend either Harbour House Inn or Diamondhead. Might be like $150 but you are right on the beach!

    Yes the bartender at Office LOVEs me...icon_smile.gif I understand rates (as traditional) have dropped dramatically now that Easter week is finished. Mark, you think he can get Diamondhead or Harbour House at the Inn for like $100-125?

    Yeah when will people learn! Ft Myers - no second "E"...I saw some misprinted shirts in Winds in March spelling it Ft. Meyeres!! I took them out and put a note on them. Haha the next day they were in the rack again. Someone not paying attention would be pissed upon getting back home and finding the mistake!

    Not long ago when I was booking flights/hotels for clients and they requested Ft. Myers, my biggest seller was Pink Shell. This one is a little over your budget, but it is one of the most sought-after properties in the area.

    Agree with TNJ...Reason why I never stayed there was the $$..Edison Beach House is another possibility also pricey. For nonbeach reasonable (on a nice canal with boats) is Matanzas Inn. Inside a 10 minute walk to beach.

    Thanks for all the replies... I'll look at those nicer places again when I'm on my own dime (my company is cheap).....Naples it is!

    If only I could bring my clubs down, looks like theres some great golf courses in the area!

    Why dont you? Pay out your pocket and enjoy the courses. The company is paying for everything else so enjoy yourself! Maybe Art Deco can join you icon_smile.gif
