MCR Acquires Hilton Garden Inn Beaufort in South Carolina

USA, New York City, New York. June 17, 2021

The latest member of the squadron! MCR — the country's 4th-largest hotel owner-operator — has acquired the 115-room Hilton Garden Inn Beaufort in South Carolina's beautiful Lowcountry region.

The hotel is just a 40-minute drive to Hilton Head Island and less than an hour from the Spanish moss splendor of Savannah, Georgia. But the real action is minutes away at the U.S. Marine Corps Air Station, one of the only places in the world where pilots train to operate F-35B Lightning II jets, which can reach speeds of Mach 1.6 (that's about 1,200 miles per hour in civilian language). Grab your aviators and practice your call signs because Tom Cruise has nothing on the daring flyers of Fightertown East.

On neighboring Parris Island, you'll find the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, the primary training center for generations of Marines since 1915. The base welcomes more than 17,000 recruits annually. In town to celebrate a new graduate? Bunk at the Hilton Garden Inn Beaufort and say "Semper Fi" with a hand-crafted cocktail at the fully stocked bar.

The Hilton Garden Inn Beaufort welcomes military and civilians alike — as long as they can drop and give us 50 at our 24-hour fitness center. (Kidding! At ease, at ease.) Take leave in the sun-soaked pool and lounge around in the outdoor areas. Pile your plate with grub at the on-site Garden Grille, serving cooked-to-order hot breakfasts every morning and, at night, pasta, steak, ribs and other hearty fare. Prefer to dine in? Order room service or prep a meal in the comfort of your guestroom (all are equipped with a mini-fridge, microwave and coffee maker).

Still more R&R awaits a quick walk from the hotel in Beaufort's historic district. Founded in 1711, the city boasts majestic live oaks

and stunning old homes that go back centuries. (Beaufort is routinely named one of the most picturesque and charming areas in the South!) Those looking for maritime pursuits will want to book in time for the city's 65th annual Beaufort Water Festival, planned for July 16-25. Expect raft races, fishing tournaments, sailing regattas and shrimp — lots and lots of delicious shrimp served with corn, sausage and potatoes in a traditional dish known as Beaufort Stew.

The Hilton Garden Inn Beaufort is located at 1500 Queen Street and features:

- 115 rooms with mini-fridges, microwaves and coffee makers

- The Garden Grille, an onsite restaurant and bar that serves breakfast, dinner and cocktails

- Free fast Wi-Fi

- A 24-hour sundry and convenience store

- A 24-hour fitness center

- An outdoor pool

- A business center

Food & Beverage: Necessity Breeds Invention

Hotel restaurants were not immune to the devastation that Covid caused in the food & beverage industry last year. In order to survive, many operations expanded their services to include packaged food sales, prepared meals to go, mini pop-up grocery stores, meal kits, takeout, and delivery to make up for lost revenues. These hybrid operations have become increasingly popular in hotels because they maximize limited F&B space and also attract local business. In those restaurants where customers are willing to dine in, there is a greater emphasis on safety protocols. Tables and chairs are spaced far enough apart to provide a sense of safety and comfort between parties. There are also stricter cleaning and disinfecting practices occurring in between dining encounters. In addition, there is a greater emphasis on outdoor dining with its offer of fresh air. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on what some leading hotels are doing to manage their F&B operations in the wake of the pandemic.
