The Breakers Resort Makes Room for New Marriott Tower Project

Over the past 90 years, The Breakers Resort has transformed from a small seaside guest cottage to a massive, multi-building oceanfront resort in the heart of Myrtle Beach. Now The Breakers Resort is ready for the next chapter.

Demolition of the Pirates Cove building began in the fall of 2019, and the Palmetto building was demolished in the Spring of 2020 to make room for the new Marriott Springhill Suites/Courtyard. Featuring 26 floors, the ultramodern Marriott Springhill Suites/Courtyard is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2022.

The Marriott Springhill Suites/Courtyard is expected to have many outstanding amenities, including an oceanfront pool deck, a lounge area with fire pits, modern business and fitness centers, breakfast and outdoor dining, as well as a bistro and grab-and-go snacks.

The two-year Marriott Springhill Suites/Courtyard construction project will take place in phases. For guests staying at The Breakers Resort with questions related to the project, we’ve compiled this quick Q&A:


What buildings are torn down?

The Palmetto and Pirates Cove buildings were removed to make room for the Marriott Springhill Suites/Courtyard project. The Palms, Paradise, Sailfish, Dunes and The Cove buildings will continue to operate as normal.

When will the construction of the new Marriott Springhill Suites/Courtyard be complete?

Full completion of the project is scheduled for the spring of 2022, although different phases of construction may allow for parts of the new Marriott Springhill Suites/Courtyard to open sooner.

Where will guests check-in at The Breakers Resort now that the Pirates Cove registration is gone?

The Breakers Resort has a new, state-of-the-art guest registration center at The Cove building, which is located between the Sailfish and Palms buildings and includes our 5 brand new indoor water slides!

Is the lazy river still open?

Yes, however, the exterior portion of The Breakers Resort’s lazy river, located on the first floor of the Paradise building, has been walled off and will temporarily operate as indoor-only. Once construction is complete, it will return to indoor and outdoor use.

Is Rusty Reel still open?

Yes, in fact, it has been completely renovated and relocated to the Lobby Level of the Palms Tower.

Will there be poolside drinks and food?

Yes! The Rusty Reel is currently open for business, and guests can still order their favorite drinks, frozen cocktails, and food by the pool. We are currently in the process of adding another poolside Tiki-bar around the Palms pool deck as well!

Where will DJ Ice Box be relocated as well?

We are thrilled to inform everyone that DJ Ice Box will still be playing at The Breakers Resort and his DJ booth has been relocated to the lawn outside the all new waterpark in The Cove!
