    The Inn & Club at Harbour Town - The Sea Pines Resort
    Hilton Head Island, SC
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 659 reviewsTripAdvisor (659)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    The stunning Harbour Town area is a great place to station yourself during a Hilton Head trip. And its standout accommodations, The Inn & Club at Harbour Town (part of The Sea Pines Resort), is certainly one of the most popular resorts on the island. Guests who choose to make the (somewhat long) trek here delight in the lush scenery, the luxurious rooms and the professional, approachable and welcoming staff. Rooms come with large flat-screen TVs, blackout-lined window treatments and spacious bathrooms with soaking tubs and Molton Brown toiletries. Visitors like to venture out of the hotel to eat (particularly at The Quarterdeck, one of Hilton Head's favorites), but most insist that you stick close to home for Sunday brunch. Harbour Town rests in the bottom boot of Hilton Head Island.

    Montage Palmetto Bluff
    Bluffton, SC
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 838 reviewsTripAdvisor (838)
    Free WiFi

    Some see Bluffton, South Carolina, as the gateway into Hilton Head Island, which is just 8 miles farther east. But this quaint town is also rife with opportunities to explore the South Carolina low country. And for recent visitors, there's no better place to make your home base than the alluring Montage Palmetto Bluff. You don't even need to leave the resort premises to enjoy the culture – the property's screened-in shabby-chic porches are a prime setting to enjoy a Carolina sunset. You can dine on the area's freshest seafood at the inn's Canoe Club and experience some of the South's trademark charm from the ever-present and accommodating staff members. Guests can choose to stay in a room within the main house, or within a private cottage. There's also a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course on-site, as well as alligator-spotting excursions, day trips to Daufuskie Island and marshland kayaking in the surrounding area. (Though the resort also charges a $40 daily amenities fee.) The Montage Palmetto Bluff sits on Village Park Square, right along the May River (about 95 miles south of Charleston and around 20 miles northeast of Savannah).
