Bay St. Louis will ring out the old year with the much-anticipated opening of the Pearl Hotel, a new boutique hotel on the corner of Main Street and Beach Boulevard. Finishing touches are quickly being added in the final days before guests check in at the end of this month.
The Pearl Hotel, with 59 rooms, restaurants offering fine dining and casual fare and a luxe bar serving craft cocktails, will welcome its first guests December 30. But Cure Land Company, who developed the $18 million hotel, will host a fitting grand opening celebration in the new year.
The project has been in the works for several years, receiving an initial green light from the city's Historic Preservation Commission in 2017.
