Southern Living: Best of the South Awards
For the first time ever, the popular travel and lifestyle magazine Southern Living conducted a reader survey to name the South’s best destinations, attractions and restaurants. The Best of the South 2017 survey conducted in late 2016 brought in more than 22,000 online votes that in turn brought us the best-of-the-best Southern spots! Categories voted on included best hotel, island, restaurant, inn, resort, barbecue, bar, shop, museum, brewery, city, and tailgate in the South.
Great hotels have a way of making it into your most treasured memories. Southern Living asks voters to chose their very favorite hotels in the south, then naming the top winner from each state. The Jekyll Island Club Hotel was named as Georgia’s best hotel – and what an honor it is!
As truly stated by Southern Living, hotels can make or break a vacation. Once you discover a hotel you love, you’ll never want to leave! Many of the Jekyll Island Club Hotel’s guests have made their stays with us a continuing tradition – from annual family reunions to anniversary trips, or simple just spending a few weekends out of the year with us. A trend noticed on the Souths’ Best Hotels was that the 10 winning hotels embodied elegance, long-standing tradition and southern hospitality. We are very honored to be voted as the #3 Best Hotel in the South, alongside the legendary Inn on Biltmore Estate and The Peabody Memphis.
