Westin Jekyll Island starts construction

JEKYLL ISLAND, Ga. – Jekyll Oceanfront Hotel, LLC and New Castle Hotels and Resorts broke ground for the Westin Jekyll Island on May 21. The $41 million beachfront hotel is scheduled to open in September 2014 as part of the Jekyll Island Beach Village Project.

“The Westin Jekyll Island is pivotal to the entire Beach Village development,” said Dave Curtis, managing partner of Jekyll Oceanfront Hotel, LLC. “It’s the perfect complement to the wonderful new convention center and the island’s relaxed and gracious ambiance.”

The 128,000-square-foot Jekyll Island Convention Center opened in May 2012. The Beach Village project also includes an oceanfront promenade, village green, restaurants, retail stores and Great Dunes Park.

Westin Jekyll Island will have 200 rooms, meeting facilities, a full-service restaurant and LEED design elements.
