Fodor's Review

This legendary British colonial-style hotel has sunny rooms, suites, and villas with traditional furnishings and a slight Caribbean flair in a particularly convenient location, just one block from Worth Avenue and one block from a pretty beach on the Atlantic Ocean. The pool area has ornamental plants, fountains, wicker furniture, and billowing white panels reminiscent of South Beach's grand art deco hotels. The pool itself is actually shaped like the state of Florida,

although the panhandle is severely reduced in size. An attentive staff, youthful yet experienced, is buzzing with competence and a desire to please. Guest rooms are decorated with West Indies accents: yellow walls, dark mahogany desks, and pineapple-carved poster beds in some. Spacious suites have sleeper sofas, and luxurious two-bedroom villas have laundry facilities and full kitchens. Reserve early for the in-house dinner cabaret shows in the Royal Room, which have featured entertainers such as Diahann Carroll and John Pizzarelli. The polo bar is super popular with locals during the early evening hours.

A lovely hotel

This is a wonderful hotel; it's older and has a lot of charm. Rooms and bathrooms are immaculate and the staff is exceptional in their graciousness. Breakfast by the pool is not to be missed. Hotel is probably not for young children but other than that, it's a great place to stay while in Palm Beach. Much better than The Breakers.
