To make the most of the dual nights of comedy, the Jekyll Island Club Hotel is offering the Comedy Weekend Package. The package is priced to sell at $489, which includes two nights at the Clubhouse or traditional accommodations with queen, king or two double beds (room tax included). A breakfast buffet in the Grand Dining Room is included each morning, as well as preferred seating at the both Friday and Saturday night comedy shows.
Want to make the two nights of laughs even more special? Join the Club Hotel at any of their classic dining options. Choose between the Grand Dining Room or The Courtyard at Crane, both of which as great choices to start the evening off right. Dinner in the Grand Dining Room is always a memorable experience, as the chef prepares continental and low-country specialties, as well as dishes with a European flair.
An outstanding alfresco restaurant featuring an arcaded loggia surrounding a fountain courtyard, the Courtyard at Crane provides Mediterranean meals with the perfect atmosphere to enjoy all the history Jekyll Island has to offer. And of course, leave plenty of time to stop by The Pub on the way to the show for a crowd-pleasing drink.
Staying with the hotel Saturday night? Then make sure to join Sunday Brunch in the Grand Dining Room. This is a time honored tradition with arrays of international cheeses and fruit, pasta and garden fresh salads, an omelet station, succulent breakfast meats, and freshly baked breakfast breads and gourmet desserts. Looking for something more casual? No problem, as Cafe Solterra is the hotel’s popular bakery-delicatessen, presenting pastries, muffins and sticky buns perfectly paired with fresh brewed Starbucks coffee.
