1. Major history points
Built in 1889, Hotel Tybee is one of Tybee Island’s oldest and largest historic structures. It witnessed hurricanes, wars, a riot, the Prohibition and the Great Depression. It withstood being burned to the ground, massive reconstruction and, most recently, remodeling. Today, Hotel Tybee stands as the largest hotel property on Tybee Island, serving as a beacon of hope and relic of the past.
2. Location, location, location
The hotel is set directly on Tybee’s lovely beach. Nestled between scenic North Beach and bustling Tybrisa Street, it’s one breezy walk from everything the island has to offer. Near quaint shops and tasty eateries, this locale’s proximity to the shores couldn’t be any more convenient.
3. A new perspective
Watch seagulls as they swoop and soar or waves as they crash beneath the rising sun. You’ll love sightseeing from your room’s very own balcony. With views this stunning, you just might forget there’s a TV in your room!
4. Social hour
When you’re ready for a sip and a swim, head to one of the hotel’s two outdoor pools. You can grab an icy cocktail at the poolside tiki bar if you’re feeling sociable, or relax in peace and quiet at the Serenity Pool on the far side of the hotel.
5. The more, the merrier
With 208 rooms, Hotel Tybee is a dream come true for large group accommodations. Large common areas can be reserved for banquets, receptions, conferences and rehearsals. Whether you’re visiting for a family reunion, wedding or meeting, the hotel has lodgings aplenty and enough staff to handle every need, big or small.
6. Parking perks
One of the many benefits of booking a room at Hotel Tybee is the complimentary parking. You can’t beat parking mere feet from Tybee’s sandy shores! They even extend their convenient parking to those who aren’t staying the night — $20 guarantees an all-day parking pass in their lot.
7. Get a room
Luxurious white linens, a stellar ocean view, flat screen HD TVs and toiletries by PAYA Organics — who could ask for more? Choose from king or double-queen rooms and stay in style. Gourmet coffee, free Wi-Fi and a private balcony sweeten the deal.
8. Creature comforts
Hotel Tybee provides free Wi-Fi among other amenities. If you’re interested in something a little more lasting, swing by the hotel’s gift shop. You’ll find quirky T-shirts, magnets, koozies and many more mementos emblazoned with Hotel Tybee’s on-trend logo.
9. Southern hospitality
Savannah is only a 15-minute drive from Tybee Island, which means you’re not far from a stroll through the city’s Historic District. Shop, eat and tour to your heart’s content in America’s first planned city before returning to your plush lodgings at Hotel Tybee.
