There’s a new high-rise resort on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront, but one with a proven track record. Formerly known as the Breakers Resort Boutique North Tower, this recently renovated building is now known as The Strand, and it is even better than ever. Although still a part of the Breakers’ family of hotels, The Strand has established its own reputation for quality, affordability and hospitality. Here are the top five reasons to spend your next Grand Strand vacation at The Strand:

Accommodations: Stay in the lap of luxury at The Strand, which offers clean, comfortable rooms for parties of all sizes and tastes. Featuring stand efficiencies and one-, two- and three-bedroom suites, The Strand offers nine different floor plans and can accommodate everything from a romantic couples retreat to a large family gathering. Modernly decorated and fully furnished rooms make you feel right at home, except for the private oceanfront balcony and amazing view outside your window. Enjoy the cozy furnishings and fixtures, fully equipped kitchens and baths, TVs, free Wifi and more.

Amenities: Guests at The Strand get the best of both worlds when it comes to fun things to see and do on the property. For a more laid-back and relaxing experience, look no farther than the back yard and the spacious tanning lawn and pool deck. Guests can kick back in a lounge chair and soak up some rays, then take a dip in the oceanfront swimming pool or hot tub. For a more lively experience, take a short stroll to our sister property, the Breakers, for a long list of aquatic attractions. Children can play in the life-sized pirate ship playground and take part in fun and free Kids Club activities, while the adults relax in the hot tub or lazy river. Enjoy all the amenities at two different resorts for the price of one.

Food & Beverage: Guests at The Strand have lots of dining options, as well as one of the nicest oceanfront bars in town. The Strand Bar offers an elegant place to enjoy a drink after a long day at the beach or for a nightcap after a night out on the town. Visitors can enjoy breakfast on site or take a stroll to the Breakers, where the Rusty Reel Bar & Grill, poolside Tiki Bar, Starbucks and Ben & Jerry’s are located on the premises. For guests who want to explore the flavors off the resort property, you are in luck. Two of the best restaurants on the Grand Strand are a short stroll from the resort. Enjoy surf at the Sea Captain’s House and turf at New York Prime, along with several eateries in the neighborhood.

Location: The Strand is located on the north end of the main Myrtle Beach strip, giving guests a close and convenient commute to some of the Grand Strand’s top attractions. The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, a 1.3-mile wooden walkway that leads to the downtown district, is only about 1 mile from The Strand, as is the popular Broadway at the Beach shopping, dining and entertainment complex. To the north, Myrtle Beach’s famed Golden Mile stretch of historic beach homes offers guests a scenic place to go for a stroll down the beach or the Boulevard. Golfers are also ideally positioned to play some of the top courses on the Grand Strand, like the nearby Dunes Golf & Beach Club and Pine Lakes International Country Club.

Sun & Fun Rewards: The Strand has your ticket to good times with the Sun & Fun Rewards package you receive at check-in. Inside you will find free passes to top attractions like Myrtle Waves, Broadway Grand Prix, the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel and Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament. Guests also get free unlimited DVD rentals to enjoy a few flicks on a rainy day or night. It’s all part of The Strand’s way of saying thanks for staying with us.


We could go on and on about why you should stay and play at The Strand, but we would love for you to come discover them yourself. Book your next Myrtle Beach vacation at The Strand for a fun and relaxing getaway.
