Springmaid Beach Resort, Myrtle Beach, S.C., starts renovation

The 30-acre oceanfront Springmaid Beach Resort in Myrtle Beach, S.C., started a property-wide renovation project. The transformation saw the demolition of the 1950s-era Marlin's cafeteria and the Cypress guestroom building. In their places, the resort will construct a new waterfront focal point for the resort, including a registration and lobby area, ocean view restaurant with outdoor seating, lobby bar, "grab & go" snack area and outdoor entertainment courtyard.

In addition, the renovation will include a complete makeover of all 452 remaining guestrooms that are located in the Live Oak and Palmetto towers. All guestrooms will have an ocean view, private balcony, 40-inch HD TVs, and a resort-themed design palette.

The property will be rebranded as a DoubleTree by Hilton upon completion of the renovation.
