First New Myrtle Beach Hotel in Four Years Delayed


The start of construction on the first new hotel in Myrtle Beach in four years has been delayed until after the summer.

Crews had aimed to start work on the 14-story Homewood Suites Oceanfront Resort & Conference Center by the first of June, but that schedule was too tight, said Buddy Lindsay, president of Sonship Hospitality, which is developing the new hotel.

Construction now is expected to start Sept. 1, with the $25 million property scheduled to open Dec. 1, 2014 on the oceanfront at 1805 S. Ocean Blvd. next to the Hampton Inn & Suites, which also is owned by Lindsay’s group.

“This will allow a much more relaxed construction schedule instead of the ‘fast-track’ schedule that we had planned,” Lindsay said in an email.
