New hotel to open in Oct.


A six-story Courtyard by Marriott hotel with a 115 rooms and a rooftop pool and  will open in October in Hilton Head’s Coligny Beach area, according to John Lee, the senior vice president of Southeastern Development Associates. The hotel’s construction comes after a 2014 rewrite of zoning rules. The hotel, which will be up to 65 feet tall, was permitted to stand taller than most buildings because it is farther off Pope Avenue, according to 2015 meeting minutes from the town’s Board of Zoning Appeals. Southeastern Development Associates is also giving Heritage Plaza a facelift.
