The Jekyll Island Club Hotel has managed to retain the historic character of the property while creating comfortable accomodations for modern day guests. For some, though, it may feel like you're staying in a museum, especially with the historic district properties and signage surrounding the hotel. Despite the formal appearances, the hotel's atmosphere is generally relaxed. Our room (a Suite) was nicely sized and almost on its own private floor of the Annex. We wish it had a door to close off the bedroom, though. The on-site bike rentals are convenient and include kids bikes and trailers. The main improvement they coud make is to increase the dining choices. Basically you have either the formal dining hall or an overpriced takeout snackbar/cafe. There are a couple of off-property restaurants within walking distance.
