Montage Palmetto Bluff was recently ranked as the #2 Resort Hotel in the South in Travel & Leisure’s annual World’s Best Awards. Moving from no. 6 last year to no. 2 this time around, the hotel owes its accolade to a staff that is “so polite, so positive, and so friendly, without being overbearing,” according to one reader. “The kids (and adults!) will love the complimentary s’mores bar set up around the huge fireplace after dinner,” added another.
