by admin on March 31, 2010

There is a new beach hotel being launched on Jekyll Island GA. Here are some excerpts from the press release on the subject:

With the historic oak tree canopy unique to this Jekyll Island hotel, the Hampton Inn & Suites, welcomed its first guests in January 2010 to the eco-friendly, beachfront hotel that utilized sustainable practices to help preserve and honour one of the eastern seaboard’s few remaining true maritime forest and dune eco-systems. The first hotel to be built on Jekyll Island since 1974, the 138 room Jekyll Island hotel provides guests with beach access in minutes while maintaining the unique natural area with dunes ranging from 18 to 30 feet above sea level with an elevated wooden walkway, providing guests a scenic route to access the Jekyll Island oceanfront.

The Hampton Inn and Suites is on the site of the old Holiday Inn, and it’s sure enough tucked into a space between all those old growth live oaks – I think they only had to remove 2 or 3 to build the hotel. Haven’t been yet, but planning on a trip to stay there in the near future.
