Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Resort Introduces Kid-Friendly Addition to Lobby

Mini Desk Welcomes Kids to Interact With the Check-In Experience

MYRTLE BEACH, SC--(Marketwire - Aug 25, 2011) - Kids are welcomed in style at one of the premier Myrtle Beach oceanfront resorts, where a special check-in desk has been designed to help make them feel just as important as mom or dad.

Hotel check-in is no longer a boring waiting game for kids, as the Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes has added a unique twist to the family check-in experience. A kid-sized front desk was added July 1, 2011 to create an exciting welcome for kids at this impressive choice among Myrtle Beach hotels near Ripley's Aquarium. Designed to fully match the adult-sized front desk, this miniature version is complete with sign-in book and red carpet. Kids are asked to "sign-in" by answering fun questions like their favorite ice cream and pet's name. A fishbowl filled with colorful sand dollars brightens the desk and children are asked to guess the number of sand dollars in the bowl.

Greeting kids as they enter this luxury Myrtle Beach hotel's Mediterranean-style lobby, the staff at this magnificent resort hopes the new kid-friendly check-in experience will engage excited children when they first enter the hotel. The General Manager is proud of the way the Myrtle Beach Marriott brings families coming back to the resort year after year. "We have repeat customers that are like part of our own family visit us year after year! The hotel wanted to add something special for the littlest family members so we developed our Kids' Check-In Area. With our Kids' Check-In Area the little ones can make great hotel memories that will last a lifetime and will be the talk of many future family gatherings!"

Boasting a large beachfront swimming pool with waterslide, Myrtle Beach access and the seasonal Fishtank Kids' Club, this family-friendly resort is part of the 2,200-acre Grande Dunes residential community and offers more amenities than many other resorts and hotels near the Grand Strand and Myrtle Beach. A great vacation spot for golf enthusiasts, the Grande Dunes Golf Course is less than a mile from this remarkable resort which also features tennis courts, a fitness center and is home to the incredible Hibiscus Spa.

Guest rooms are furnished to include a chair and ottoman and designed with large marble bathrooms adorned with Bath and Body Works amenities. Cotton-rich bedding ensembles allow for a good night's rest and all rooms are equipped with Internet access. Cable/satellite service is provided along with premium movie channels and pay-per-view movie options. On-site dining includes the full service Ocean's on 82nd restaurant and an excellent offering of lighter fare at the poolside Ocean Blu. An intriguing offering of signature drinks is also available both inside and poolside.
