MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – September 29, 2014 – Kingston Plantation, an oceanfront resort in Myrtle Beach, is named among the Best in the South by Meetings Focus. Each year, Meetings Focus polls its users–made up of meeting planners who hold events around the world–to determine the best hotels and resorts for meetings and events in North America.

The properties are judged on the quality of meeting space; guest rooms; services and amenities; food and beverage; tech and bandwidth support; recreational facilities/activities; helpfulness of staff; and overall value and experience. Properties are divided into the same regional categories as the magazine: West, East, South and Mid-America.

“This is our fourth time to be included among this very prestigious list,” said Bob Barenberg, managing director of Kingston Resorts. “As one of the largest meeting facilities on the East Coast, we agree we offer a high-quality meeting experience in one of the most beautiful locations in the South.”

Kingston Resorts includes Kingston Plantation and Kingston Shores, which are owned by FelCor Lodging Trust, Inc. These properties include two full-service oceanfront hotels including Embassy Suites Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Resort and Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort. A variety of luxury Myrtle Beach condominiums, townhomes and vacation villas, located along the famous Grand Strand, are also available for guests to enjoy. Guests at both properties enjoy access to recreational facilities including a 50,000-square-foot Sport & Health Club with indoor and outdoor pools, lit tennis courts, pro shop and state-of-the-art fitness equipment, Splash!, an oceanfront water park and lazy river and a host of seasonal activities for adults and children.
