Rated 4-stars by Forbes Travel Guide, The Breakers has made many postcards featuring iconic Palm Beach locales. With five beachfront acres and 140 acres overall with 10 restaurants, an extensive spa and fitness facilities, a golf course, a tennis academy, and more, it’s an American classic.

Forbes’ inspectors report, “A celebrity favorite since 1896, and in its current building since 1926, The Breakers Palm Beach boasts a rich history rivaled only by its own penchant for constant reinvention. The result is a thoroughly modern and dynamic beachfront destination that happens to welcome you with a 200-foot, loggia-flanked, Murano-glass-dripping, vaulted main lobby based on a Renaissance castle in Genoa.”

Invite friends up for a cocktail—and the best panoramic views of the coastline.

3. The Chesterfield Palm Beach

Travel + Leisure writes, “Registered with the Palm Beach Preservation Foundation as a historic landmark, The Chesterfield’s iconic white building has been used as a hotel since 1926…The hotel certainly has a British feel—particularly in public spaces such as the Churchill Cigar Room, where you can enjoy a smoke straight from the well-stocked humidor—but it’s truly pure Palm Beach, attracting Lilly Pulitzer–clad guests during both high and low season. Many of the 52 rooms are dressed in chintz and tartan and paired with modern streamlined furniture, and there’s a lush outdoor courtyard that’s a lovely place for a crisp Cobb salad with locally grown beefsteak tomatoes and a signature Courtyard pink martini. It feels more like a British estate than, say, an Art Deco hotel in South Beach—and that’s just how travelers like it.”

US News reports, “This historic property has been catering to the who’s who – including politicians, royalty, and celebrities – since 1947. The property’s British colonial architecture and classic decor reflect both its storied history and its luxurious reputation…The old-school ambiance lures the wealthiest of Palm Beach’s social set, and the cocktails are none too shabby either. If you do stay at The Colony Palm Beach, you can expect soft bedding (credit the pillow-top mattresses draped in Egyptian linens) and great customer service. The food at Polo at The Colony is said to be excellent as well. However, for many guests, The Colony is a staple of any Palm Beach location due to its upscale atmosphere and prime position near some of the area’s best shopping venues.”

A sister to Nantucket’s White Elephant and The Wauwinet, Hospitality Net writes of the newly opened hotel, “Contrary to the bright pinks and greens that dominate the Palm Beach aesthetic, the new White Elephant brings the subtlety of New England luxury to the South Florida social scene. The design will capture the spirit of a grand home while maintaining the ambiance of a landmarked boutique hotel. Of particular note is the original fireplace in the lobby, which has been restored to the grandeur of the Golden Age. The hardwood floors, Carrara marble, elegant tiles, and woven rugs are all interpreted with contemporary style.”
