St. Simons Island, Georgia (January 24, 2010) As the new year turns a page in history and The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort on St. Simons Island celebrates a Diamond Anniversary as one of America’s gems of hospitality, publicist Leigh Cort also celebrates a benchmark year. Her public relations company that specializes in historic hotels and distinctive destinations has reached its 10th Anniversary and a significant career goal: “I had to come back to St. Simons Island, Georgia and spend time at this incredible historic resort. Now I am luring professional travel journalists to appreciate its pedigree too” admits Cort.
Representing historic bed and breakfast inns, celebrity chefs and hotels on the National Historic Register for a decade, her southern connection began 30 years ago when she left New York to live in St. Simons Island. This is the year that Cort’s affection for the island has turned a milestone in her company as being the publicist for the resort and award-winning golf course.
With its rich southern heritage spanning 75 years of island evolution and advancements, the hotel’s distinctive Mediterranean architecture has secured its place in history. The story continues today as a destination of immeasurable riches. The seaside paradise combines pleasure and practicality in a setting heralded by guests since it opened in 1935.
THE KING AND PRINCE HOTEL HISTORY: If walls could talk, The King and Prince, (on the National Register of Historic Places and a member of Historic Hotels of America), would share a rich legacy of its place in American history for 75 years. Originally opened as a private dance club, friends of owners Frank Horn and Morgan Wynn coined its name that befitted its regal atmosphere. The Resort has been a tranquil island haven for dignitaries, celebrities, discerning families and business travelers since pre WW II until today.
