DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Myrtle Beach Oceanfront, formerly Springmaid Beach Resort, offers participants the chance to engage in workshop amenities set amidst the beauty and excitement of South Carolina’s beaches. Our resort is located near all the fun and activity of Myrtle Beach’s Grand Strand, yet feels a world away situated between its own 1068 foot long Pier and the serene natural beautiful of Myrtle Beach State Park.

Bordered on the east by the beautiful Atlantic Ocean, the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton features one-quarter mile of pristine, white sandy beach and beautiful dunes flanked by sea oats. Guests can enjoy a stroll on the beach and catching our beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

Also popular is the resorts  on-site restaurant:  Ocean Blue Restaurant and Lounge for casual tasty fare and a beach front setting.  DoubleTree’s great location and Myrtle Beach’s amenities make it perfect for spouses or guests to attend and enjoy.

Please note:  Our beautiful pier was destroyed during Hurricane Matthew on October 8, 2016.  We plan to rebuild but it will take time.
