Myrtle Beach Marriott Completes $14 Million Renovation

Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes


The Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes on the northern end of Myrtle Beach has completed a $14 makeover which included 405 revamped guest rooms that were redesigned to include brand-new contemporary furniture, including chests, mirrors, artwork, closets, desks, chairs and beds – down to the sheets, mattresses, duvets, pillows and pillow cases. All rooms now also boast new 50-inch smart TVs. Guest room bathrooms were replaced with new, luxurious walk-in showers, mirrors, fixtures, commodes and lighting. The hallways on the resort’s 11 floors were re-carpeted and updated as well.

From floor to ceiling, the renovation aims at bringing to light the oceanfront resort’s sophisticated style, sleek finishes, clean lines, and spacious design. “We believe our guests will be pleased and delighted with these renovations,” says Cindy Hull, director of sales and marketing for the Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort & Spa. “The Myrtle Beach Marriott has always set a high standard among the oceanfront hotels here along the Grand Strand, and these upgrades will define a new benchmark of luxury moving forward.”

For meeting planners, the resort offers 45,000 square feet of event space. For families and couples, the resort sits on the oceanfront on the north end of Myrtle Beach.
