Bottom Line

The beachfront Ocean 22 by Hilton Grand Vacations opened in 2015 as an upper-middle-range option that draws families and couples. It features lovely indoor and outdoor pools that include a sunbathing lawn and a seasonal bar. There's also a well equipped fitness center, as well as a game room stocked with toys and games. Though there's no full restaurant here, the hotel has an inviting lobby bar and a small shop selling snacks, sandwiches, and Starbucks coffee. The 220 one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites are sleek and contemporary, and all come with furnished balconies, living rooms, and full kitchens decked out with stainless steel appliances. Expect to pay a resort fee that covers self-parking (valet parking is extra), Wi-Fi, and two bottles of water. Travelers looking for more activities might want to consider Captain’s Quarters Resort, which is not as chic or modern, but has a water park, bowling alley, and arcade.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Sleek and modern beachfront chain hotel

This modern chain hotel from the Hilton brand (opened in 2015) is situated in a beachfront high-rise and features swish contemporary interiors. Decor is marked by clean lines and sleek surfaces, while floor-to-ceiling windows fill common spaces with lots of natural light. The high-ceilinged lobby feels bright and airy, and besides being home to the reception area, it also holds a chic bar with contemporary couches, chairs, and tables where guests can linger. Families tend to be the main clientele here, drawn by the spacious multi-bedroom suites, though many couples on vacation stay here as well. 

Location

Beachfront location within walking distance of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade

The hotel is situated along the beachfront in Central Myrtle Beach and is within easy walking distance of popular restaurants (like McDonald's, Shoney's, and River City Cafe) and shops. Many family-friendly attractions are nearby, including Broadway at the Beach (four-minute drive), Ripley's Believe It or Not (four-minute drive), and the Family Kingdom Amusement Park (seven-minute drive). The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade, which stretches for over a mile along the coast, is an 11-minute walk away, and the SkyWheel can be reached in about 15 minutes on foot. The Myrtle Beach International Airport is a 15-minute drive from the resort. 

Rooms

Spacious, contemporary suites with balconies, full kitchens, and washer/dryers

The hotel offers spacious one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites. Decor is sleek and contemporary, and though fairly chainlike, the spaces are pleasant and full of natural light thanks to large windows. Neutral color schemes are paired with muted turquoise and green shades that complement the wooden floors, while pops of color courtesy of photos on the walls, armchairs, and pillows add brightness. All units have separate living rooms with sofa beds as well as furnished balconies, many with beautiful ocean views. All also have full kitchens decked out with stainless steel appliances including dishwashers, full fridges, microwaves, and stoves with ovens. Coffeemakers, toasters, and all cooking- and dish-ware is provided. Other standard amenities include washers and dryers, plus all suites come with flat-screen TVs, DVD players, safes, and free Wi-Fi. Bathrooms are sleek, spacious, and attractive, featuring double sink vanities (single sinks in some), illuminated mirrors, and both soaking tubs and separate walk-in showers. Philip Thomas Roth toiletries are supplied. 

Features

Attractive indoor and outdoor pools, chic lobby bar, modern fitness center, and kids' game room

One of the highlights here is the attractive outdoor pool, which features a lovely pool deck with potted plants and plenty of loungers and offers pretty views over the beach. It adjoins an equally pleasant indoor pool that's situated in a partially open-air structure (open-air in the summer, and glassed in during colder seasons), plus there's a hot tub. There's also a sunbathing lawn lined with sunbeds right by the outdoor pool, plus a seasonal poolside bar.

The fitness center, though a bit small, offers a decent amount and variety of Precor cardio- and strength-training machines, and a wall of windows makes it feel bright and airy. Guests can request free ear buds from the front desk. Dining-wise, the hotel lacks a full restaurant, but does have a pleasant lobby bar and a daily happy hour. There's also a shop selling snacks and sundries, including sandwiches, paninis, pizzas, and Starbucks coffee. Guests can purchase breakfast items here, but there's no full breakfast or buffet available. Other amenities include a business center and a spacious game room for kids that's stocked with toys, games, TVs, and computers. Note that there is a mandatory resort fee that covers Wi-Fi, DVD rentals, and self parking. Valet parking is also available for an additional fee.
