Following more than 20,000 nominations, over 150,000 votes and countless social media posts, the Beaufort Hotel has received second place honors in the 2019 Voters’ Choice Awards, presented by Millennium Buildings, in the Hotel/Vacation Rental category.

The Beaufort Hotel is ranked among other well-known North Carolina hotels in the Voters’ Choice Awards, including The Umstead Hotel and Spa, 21c Museum Hotel Durham, Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club and JB Duke Hotel.

A part of the Ascend Hotel Collection by Choice Hotels International and managed by Concord Hospitality, the Beaufort Hotel is situated on the idyllic Crystal Coast and channels North Carolina’s rich maritime culture. Opened in April 2019, the property features 133 guestrooms, including four waterfront suites overlooking Taylor’s Creek. Inside this boutique hotel is over 10,000 square feet of meeting space and a restaurant known for its locally sourced fare, 34° North, which welcomed guests and other patrons in June.

“It is truly an honor to be a finalist in this category – especially within our first year of operation – among several other iconic North Carolina properties,” said Peter Grills, general manager of the Beaufort Hotel.

“Having only been open for nearly six months, we are thrilled to come in second place and look forward to continuing to welcome guests – new and return – to our hotel.”

The Beaufort Hotel is located at 2440 Lennoxville Road, Beaufort, NC 28516.
