Georgia’s state-owned Jekyll Island will soon turn into one of the finest residing destinations with a hotel coming up for enjoying the long-vacant beachfront. According to the Brunswick News reports a 209-room hotel is scheduled to open in spring or summer of next year.
This hotel will include a double branding with 20 Courtyard by Marriott rooms and 89 Residence Inn by Marriott rooms. The hotel is crafted by LNW hospitality under a lease with the Jekyll Island Authority. It will sit on nearly 6 acres (2.4 hectares) of oceanfront land, with amenities including a pool, splash pad, fire pits, restaurant, bar, fitness centre and meeting space.
The property was vacant for more than 15 years and is the former location of four hotels dating back to 1961. Hotel rooms is expected cost around $180 a night, said Dave Curtis, managing director of LNW Hospitality. And this will be cheaper than at the Jekyll Island Club or the Westin but higher than several other island hotels.
