MYRTLE BEACH, SC--(Marketwired - Apr 10, 2013) - The Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes is no stranger to awards. For the last eight years, it has been honored as a AAA Four Diamond resort. While that honor is clearly an important one, the Myrtle Beach tennis resort was equally excited to be at the top of this year's Myrtle Beach Herald Readers Choice Awards.
The annual awards, voted on by readers of the local publication, honored this Myrtle Beach spa resort with Best Hotel Bar and Best Luxury Hotel; it was also a finalist for the Best Oceanfront Hotel.
"The Myrtle Beach Marriott is proud to have received these prestigious awards," Brook Ray, general manager of this Myrtle Beach wedding venue, says. "The special thing about the Myrtle Beach Herald accolade is that it is awarded by the locals. It's always nice to have the insider stamp of approval."
Winner of Best Hotel Bar, the aptly named The Bar offers an elegant setting that's casual enough to visit with a group friends but nice enough to impress a date or celebrate something special. Its rich color palette of gold and burgundy sets the scene for tasty appetizers and a variety of drinks and cocktails. The Bar is a great place for a drink before or after a meal at this Myrtle Beach hotel's fine dining restaurant Oceans on 82nd. For lunch, try a chunky lobster roll, featuring cool lobster salad on a grilled soft bun served with a side of homemade sea salt chips, or a BLT salad with baby greens, tomato slices, crispy smoked bacon, blue cheese crumbles and creamy dressing. Dinner offers a variety of entrees including the spicy, creamy shrimp n' grits and black pepper-crusted bone-in pork chops with caramelized peach jam and brown-butter country-ham demi-glace.
