At today’s DeSoto Beach Hotel, we strive to recreate for every guest that same experience that the old DeSoto Beach Club was to generations of travelers and Tybee Island, GA locals. The buildings and amenities at Tybee’s only beachfront hotel may have been renewed and updated, but our soul remains the same. The magnificent old hotel, all red Spanish tile and palm-lined gardens, was a landmark not just for the Island, but also for the whole Southern coast. Back when it was built in 1939, genteel guests of the original Hotel DeSoto Beach Club had it all. Of course, luxury accommodations were different back then: the Beach Club’s chief draws were air conditioning and bathrooms en suite amenities mostly unheard of in those days!
Today’s DeSoto Beach Hotel strikes a delicate balance, drawing the best from every era of the storied hotel and adding an exciting, modern spin. It’s not a playground for the superrich anymore, but our staff still works just as hard to kill ‘em with kindness and service. People don’t flock here from hundreds of miles around to dance on the shore like they did once, but fun is what a stay at the DeSoto is all about. And the islanders may not congregate in the lounge chatting like the 24/7 neighborhood news station they once were, but the place still drips with local character.
