HILTON MYRTLE BEACH RESORT
10000 Beach Club Dr, Myrtle Beach, SC 29572
July 13th is the day that I am most grateful to actualize because it is indeed my birthday. Over time it has become less celebratory, so, in an effort to rekindle my self-love, value, and peace, I booked an oceanfront hotel in Myrtle Beach, SC. After much consideration of design and value, I reserved room 726 at the Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort.
My experience began with checking into the light and airy lobby, where I was given a free breakfast pass by a kind receptionist. Afterwards, I walked into the warm and cozy vibes of my room and rested my bags on the small open bar area to my immediate right. Unique to my exposure, the mocha toned carpet had a soft texture with a slight cushion. Then, I recognized the round, pearl lamp bases, as my initial décor attraction from the website, sitting atop the sturdy, oak end tables. I found my bed dressed with ample pillows, white linens, and a bed skirt with a tan and white, floral print. The design offered a club chair, as additional seating, with a round, mahogany ottoman, consistent with the rooms color scheme; a floor lamp with a crème shade lit the corner of the room.
The Hilton provided an outdoor and indoor pool, as well as a spa and state-of-the-art fitness center for its patrons, but I chose room service for my relaxing birthday on the ocean. The onsite restaurant had a plethora of burgers, steaks, and salads, but my taste buds selected the seafood pasta with mussels, scallops, and shrimp with a spicy, coconut cream sauce and a side of sweet chili wings and iced tea. My pasta was gently plated with ample seafood and garnishes, but the coconut cream sauce let my taste buds down; I anticipated a mix of robust spices and sweetness, but was met with a butter flavored sauce. Even so, I enjoyed my dinner while listening to the waves on my private balcony and then retreating to my comfortable bed to watch Law and Order SVU.
The breakfast buffet bar made up for the lacking flavors from my previous night’s dinner. My waitress smiled and politely informed me that I could both order from the chef and enjoy the buffet. So I did. The buffet was overflowing with fresh fruits, cereals, and fluffy eggs, grits, and meat. So, I over indulged in my favorite corned beef hash, an omelet, waffles, and mix of orange juice and cranberry juice, and more!
An overnight stay at the Hilton was valued at $274.44. As a Hilton Honors member, I was fortunate to use points accumulated from past lodging in exchange for a lower rate.
