JEKYLL ISLAND, Ga., May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- 2012 is unfolding as a year to remember for the Jekyll Island Club Hotel on Jekyll Island, Georgia, as the renowned Four-Star Resort celebrates two historic milestones: the 125th Anniversary of the Jekyll Island Club, and the 25th Anniversary of the Jekyll Island Club Hotel.
The Jekyll Island Club was originally built in 1886 as a winter retreat for America's wealthy elite, including J.P. Morgan, William Rockefeller, Joseph Pulitzer, the Vanderbilts, Goulds and Astors. Restored to its original splendor in 1986 and now a National Historic Landmark and a member of Historic Hotels of America, The Jekyll Island Club Hotel, in the heart of Jekyll Island's historic district, presents 157 rooms and suites in five historical settings. Beaches, golf, dining and recreation are part of the Hotel's guest experience.
In observing and celebrating these two complementing anniversaries, the Hotel created a year-long calendar of special events, discounts and guest promotions that began in January and will carry though 2012. "The response from first-time guests, those who regularly visit us, as well as residents throughout The Golden Isles has been tremendous," said Kevin Runner, the Hotel's Managing Partner. "Our goal has been to give our guests–through themed events, dining experiences, weekly receptions, hotel tours and other activities–a true sense and flavor of history and to make them very much a part of these historic celebrations."
