The only hotel near the polo fields in the equestrian mecca of Wellington—10 miles west of downtown Palm Beach—feels a bit like a tony clubhouse, with rich wood paneling, hunt prints, and elegant chandeliers; but inside the rooms are standard Hampton Inn fare. One-bedroom apartment-style suites have sleeper sofas, refrigerators, and microwaves. Some rooms have a lake view. If horseback riding is your thing, this is the place to be. Plus, it's close to some of the more
off-the-beaten-path tourist attractions, including kid-favorite Lion Country Safari.
