Great golf, great hotel: Forbes again honors Hilton Head’s Inn at Harbour Town

Posted 6/29/2013 12:09:00 PM

If there’s anything more exciting than a round at Harbour Town Golf Links, Hilton Head’s top-ranked golf course and home to the RBC Heritage, South Carolina’s lone annual PGA Tour event, it’s the idea of waking up the morning of your round and gazing down at Harbour Town’s first tee from the comfort of your room at the Inn at Harbour Town.

Obviously, the folks that run Forbes magazine’s “Four-Star Award” program agree – whether they’re golfers or not. The Inn at Harbour Town, a 60-room boutique hotel in Sea Pines Resort, has again received the Forbes award for “continuing levels of luxury and customer service,” according to news releases.

Forbes Travel Guides are renowned for their ratings of hotels, restaurants and spas in North America, with anonymous experts visiting thousands of properties annually to arrive at Star Ratings, which “signify quality, value and a superior experience,” the magazine said. The Inn at Harbour Town is one of only 226 hotels to receive a Four-Star rating.

Guests at the Inn at Harbour Town, besides immediate access to the Pete Dye-Jack Nicklaus-designed Harbour Town Golf Links, also have available Sea Pines’ two other golf courses, Heron Point by Pete Dye and the Ocean Course, as well as tennis, five miles of beaches, hiking, biking and shopping.
