Eau Palm Beach
Formerly The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach the Eau Palm Beach boasts ocean front accommodations, knowledgeable staff and a fantastic spa, and is a great option for those looking to be removed from the action and for those in search of value in a luxury-oriented town.
The downside to the property remains its location. The beach continues to shrink due to erosion, and guests need a car if they want to go into Palm Beach for shopping or dining. That said, the drive into town weaves along the coast, offering a glimpse of spectacular mansions, and most people are perfectly happy to lounge by the pool rather than mess their pedicures in the sand anyhow. Add to that prices well below those at the Breakers, and the resort’s winning combination becomes clear.
Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach
Someone who has experienced many Four Seasons properties around the world may find this one unremarkable. But if the architecture and decor are a bit plain-Jane by Four Seasons standards (at least when compared with the chain’s properties in Bali, Costa Rica and Florence), the service does not disappoint. Whether misting you with Evian poolside or whipping up custom cocktails to suit your mood, the staff here is first-rate.
This property is for those looking to be removed from the action of town, as it is located a fifteen-minute drive south of Worth Avenue. The oceanfront suites are not the largest of the resort’s 210 accommodations, but they have the best views. The Restaurant is one of three AAA Five Diamond dining rooms in South Florida. The excellent spa has a dedicated men's section.
Palm Beach Historic Inn
In a resort town known for its extravagance, a charming low-key bed-and-breakfast is a breath of fresh air. The rooms are small but very pretty, decorated in a style consistent with the building’s 1920s roots. The property feels more like a home than a hotel, down to the delicious (complimentary) pastries delivered to your room each morning.
