Mary Ann DeSantis of “Writing with Style” visited The King and Prince over the summer with her husband Tony.  DeSoto Magazine/Exploring the South recently published Mary Ann’s interview with Gaines Sturdivant, President of MMI Hotel Group, which owns and manages The King and Prince.  Mr. Sturdivant’s father, Mike, helmed the company when they purchased The King and Prince in 1980:

“Dad was interested in finding a resort to add to his portfolio. He was familiar with Sea Island and when he saw The King and Prince, he felt it was exactly what he was looking for,” said Gaines Sturdivant about his father who passed away in May 2012. “It turned into far more than an investment for him and for our family. It is our flagship hotel and a cherished part of our company.”
