MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – (February 1, 2012) – Embassy Suites at Kingston Plantation, an oceanfront resort in Myrtle Beach, has begun renovations to the lobby, restaurants and common areas of the hotel. The multi-million project, slated for completion in early April, follows recent renovations to the hotel’s 255 guest rooms and the resort’s Sport & Health Club that were completed last year.
The lobby will have a new check-in area that is being designed for efficiency and ease of service. The renovation will modernize and open up the reception area with a vibrant and contemporary first impression.
“Our new lobby will roll out the welcome mat, and it has been designed to create comfort and ease when guests check in,” said Bob Barenberg, managing director, Embassy Suites Myrtle Beach. “Our design team carefully selected fabrics and color palettes to create a more relaxed and inviting atmosphere.”
The hotel’s food and beverage outlets will also receive renovations to modernize and enhance the facilities as well as offer breathtaking views of the surrounding natural beauty of Myrtle Beach. A new upscale 44-seat oceanfront restaurant is being added and will offer scenic views along the Atlantic Ocean. The existing lobby restaurant, Fisheye Grill, will be completely transformed into a new open kitchen concept with modern fixtures. This restaurant will serve the hotel’s complimentary, cooked-to-order breakfast, as well as lunch and dinner. A new lobby bar is also being added with large-screen televisions for guests to enjoy news and sporting events. The current café bar in the lobby that offers Starbucks™ products will be expanded with additional seating and an extended menu offering grab-and-go sandwiches, milk shakes and pre-made salads. In addition, improvements will be made to the lobby retail and gift shop.
Embassy Suites, the first green certified hotel in Myrtle Beach, has 255 oceanfront suites that combine breathtaking views with the comforts of home.
