The latest addition to Jekyll Island Club Resorts is the Jekyll Island Ocean Suites, a boutique oceanfront hotel in Georgia with only 41 rooms—all suites, of course. The venue is associated with the nearby historic and famed Jekyll Island Club which was founded in 1886 and catered to the nation’s wealthiest families, most notably the Morgans, Rockefellers and Vanderbilts.
Located literally a stone’s throw from the sea, the high-end venue offers ocean-facing balconies for all guests. With its oceanfront site, the use of aluminum for the roof was the only choice to stand up to the harsh saltwater environment. Approximately 20,000 square-feet of Petersen’s Snap-Clad panels were installed. The .040 aluminum panels were finished in Silver color and fabricated at the Petersen plant in Acworth, Ga.
