Feel like a king at this towering resort, literally – you can see from almost anywhere on the coast. The rooms range from lavish, one- to five-bedroom condos and two-story townhouses, to private villages and cottages along tree-lined streets. While every room is spacious (think 9ft-high ceilings, double doors and walk-in closets), the real gem is the Bridge. Suspended between the resort’s two towers, this 5,200-square-foot penthouse has seven bedrooms, seven and a half baths, a media room and a private balcony with panoramic ocean views. We’d book that one just to find out what half a bath is.
Myrtle Beach is home to a bevy of restaurants, golf courses, hotels and sights – from the natural beach to the towering SkyWheel – that attract locals and tourists alike. And with so much to see, do and eat (especially along the Grand Strand), this South Carolina coastal town isn’t a place where you usually hang out at your hotel. Unless you’re staying at… these hotels. From national chains and boutique beachfront properties, to luxury resorts connected to world-renowned golf courses and mega hotels with their own oceanfront waterparks, the Myrtle Beach hotel scene is unlike any other in the world. Here are some of our favorite haunts this all-American vacation destination has to offer.
