My mother always likes to stay in the newest buildings. The last few years we have been staying at The North Beach Plantation. Has anything new gone up anywhere on the grand strand that would be worth checking out? Thanks!

Just for off the press! :clown:

Another new oceanfront hotel is in the works for Myrtle Beach.

A Residence Inn-SpringHill Suites Oceanfront Resort is planned for the vacant lot just north of Second Avenue Pier. The 150-room property aims to open in summer 2015, though the plan is still in the early stages and must go through the usual approval process.

Buddy Lindsay, who developed the Hampton Inn on the Oceanfront and plans to start construction this fall on a Homewood Suites next door, is working on the new hotel, saying there’s ample demand for all those new hotel rooms. His Hampton Inn on the oceanfront has had to turn away thousands of potential guests during the past few years because the property was full, he has said.

Lindsay’s other proposed new hotel, the Homewood Suites, is much further along.

Construction on the $25 million hotel at 1805 S. Ocean Blvd., which will share pools and other amenities with the Hampton Inn next door, is expected to start Sept. 1. It aims to open Dec., 1, 2014. It will have 100 suites, a mix of two-bedroom, one-bedroom and studios, all with kitchens and private balconies. Homewood also will have a 300-seat conference center, three pools, a fire pit, fitness center, a Pilates-aerobics room for women only and a bistro serving sandwiches and snacks.

This will be the only Homewood of the 399 in the chain that is on the oceanfront and the first dually branded Homewood-Hampton hotel in South Carolina, Lindsay has said.

The 14-story Homewood Suites Oceanfront Resort & Conference Center is the first new hotel in the city since 2009, when the south tower of the Hampton Inn opened next door to where the Homewood will be built.
The beach hasn’t seen any new hotels for four years as the market tried to correct from the overbuilding of lodging units during the height of the real estate market.
