Palm Beach is the easternmost town of Florida, United States. Established as a resort by Henry Morrison Flagler in the 1900s, it has lived up to its legacy of being a prime vacation spot in the country. Most of the residents are affluent families and they enjoy tropical weather, which is very conducive for resort living.
If you are taking a vacation to Palm Beach, Florida, you may want to consider these popular hotels for your accommodations:
- Breakers Hotel - It is Palm Beach's historic hotel built by Henry Flagler himself. It was originally known as The Palm Beach Inn and was built to accommodate travelers of Flagler's Florida East Coast Railway. The name was changed into Breakers in 1901 when guests began to prefer room accommodations "by the breakers." The Breakers Hotel takes pride in the fact that they have been the recipients of the prestigious AAA Five Diamond Award.
- Bradley Park Hotel - Located along Sunset Avenue, it is also one of the oldest hotels in Palm Beach. Built by Cornel E.R. Bradley, the hotel was intended to accommodate the casino goers of the nearby Beach Club, which was dubbed as the "most expensive casino in the world." The Palm Beach Historical Society recognizes the hotel's part in the town's history and designated it as a historical landmark. Although the Beach Club has already been transformed into a park, Bradley Park Hotel still sits in the same original and strategic spot. It has become popular to tourists, as the place is only two blocks away from the sands of the Atlantic Ocean. Not to mention that the park beside it attracts guests, too.
- The Brazilian Court - This is another historic hotel built way back in 1926. The name was influenced by its location as it is nestled in front of Brazilian Avenue and Australian Avenue at Hibiscus. Joseph D'Esterre and Stanley Paschal, both investors from New York, built it as an apartment hotel complete with individual kitchens for the guests. Today, the hotel is remodeled as a condominium hotel where guests have the "guest house" feel while enjoying complete hotel service. It has also earned the AAA Four Diamond Rating and is a member of the Historic Hotels of America.
- Palm Beach Historic Inn - Unlike the other historical hotels on this list, the Palm Beach Historic Inn management intended to preserve the original beauty of the place, but with modern convenience. The lobby still has the feel of a European parlor while antiques and hardwood floor are signature designs of every room. It is strategically located a few steps away from the beach, the shops at Worth Avenue, and other places of interest in Palm Beach. Palm Beach not only takes pride in being a prime tourist spot. It is also the perfect place for families. In fact, it was selected in June 2003 as America's "Best Place to Live," a distinction awarded by the Robb Report Magazine. Truly, Palm Beach is a town that is one of a kind.
