The Myrtle Beach oceanfront is lined with full-service resorts designed to provide fun for couples, groups and the whole family. The inland area boasts a few business-friendly hotels with all the basics but without the beach, pools and other amenities. If only there were an upscale resort on the oceanfront that offered all the best for both business and pleasure.
Well, now there is thanks to the recent opening of The Strand in Myrtle Beach. Featuring a state-of-the-art business center, complete with a full bar and business lounge, The Strand offers all the comfort and convenience one needs to make it an ideal working vacation. It’s the best way to enjoy all the great things about Myrtle Beach while also taking care of business.
Previously known as The Breakers Resort North Boutique Tower, The Strand has undergone major renovations and updates that go well beyond the name change and new sign. All rooms have been totally remodeled and outfitted with the latest fixtures and furnishings. Offering modern decorations and well-appointed rooms, The Strand provides visitors with an elegant environment that is conducive to handling your business affairs while also giving guests a great venue for a working vacation.
Offering the boutique experience in a beautiful setting, The Strand offers everything from standard oceanfront rooms to two-bedroom condos — all featuring private balconies overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Myrtle Beach’s lovely white-sand beach. The rooms are fully equipped with all the creature comforts so you can make yourself feel right at home in your cozy bed, on your comfy couch and in the kitchenette and bathrooms that have undergone extreme makeovers.
The rooms also offer desktops so you can tackle your workload in the privacy of your own room, but many of The Strand’s working guests can’t resist trying out the new, high-tech business center. The center features built-in computer tablets and laptop and printing connections, enabling you to knock out your to-do list in style. The adjoining business lounge allows you to kick back and draw inspiration while looking out over the ocean and beach, in addition to providing the perfect setting for hosting formal or informal business meetings.
Once you’ve dotted all your I’s and crossed all your T’s, it’s time to play, and The Strand offers many opportunities for fun during your down time. The new Strand Bar features a first-class atmosphere for unwinding after a long day of work, providing a nice place to relax and enjoy a few drinks. Or you can take a dip in the outdoor pool, a soak in the spacious hot tub or a stroll down to the beach to stick your toes in the surf and sand — not a bad way to end a full business day.
Those who want to let loose when the workday is done, or family and friends who came along and might be more interested in fun than business, can take a short walk down the beach or Ocean Boulevard to sister resort The Breakers, where you can enjoy all the amenities of a more family-fun-oriented resort. Take advantage of the waterpark, complete with a lazy river and a pirate-ship aquatic playground for the little ones, as well as a tiki bar and hot tubs for the grown-ups.
The Strand is also surrounded by excellent dining options for a business dinner or a family night out. The famous Sea Captain’s House and New York Prime are only a couple of blocks away, and the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Broadway at the Beach are short drives away. It’s all part of what makes staying and playing at The Strand the perfect way to mix business with pleasure in the Myrtle Beach area.
