Top Reward Night: Holiday Inn Resort Panama City

8. Holiday Inn Resort Panama City Beach

When Panama City comes up in conversation, one immediately conjures up an image of tropical drinks, sugar-sand beaches and, yes, probably a Spring Break memory or two.

So it’s no surprise that Holiday Inn Resort Panama City Beach checks in at #8 on our list. The resort features a lagoon-style pool (with a cascading waterfall), hot tubs and the new SeaGlass Bar & Grill. This resort also caters to kids, with a water playground and free daily outdoor activities.
