An iconic boutique hotel with a star-studded past, ideally located a short walk from the beach and Worth Avenue
It’s no secret that The Colony Palm Beach is among the elite when it comes to Sunshine State stays. Through the years, it’s played host to Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII; President Clinton; President Bush; the Maharani of Baroda; Liza Minnelli; Bill Blass; Phyllis Diller; and Judy Garland (to name just a few).
And there’s no secret sorcery at work to account for its popularity, only a perfect marriage of down-to-earth hospitality and dazzling Palm Beach extravagance, and of classic style and modern luxury. Set it all to the backdrop of Hammon Avenue, one block from Worth, and you’ve got a getaway for the ages. Indeed, it’s already been around for more than half a century.
Carleton Varney recently reimagined The Colony Palm Beach’s 90 bedrooms. You’ll be able to appreciate his timeless, elegant tastes in your own abode’s floral prints, bright hues and vintage-inspired pieces. For something else on which to feast your eyes, scan through Netflix: Movies are complimentary. Premium rooms are a bit larger than Standard rooms, and both offer your choice of one queen bed or two doubles.

The hotel’s signature polo-themed restaurant is where dishes like shrimp-avocado omelets and rib eyes are served, in an indoor-outdoor dining space. This dining outlet serves three meals a day, complementing New York-style breakfast-and-lunch deli Café 155 and colorful Bimini Bar by the pool.
Florida’s most elite destination, Palm Beach offers more than just sandy beaches and year-round sunshine (although there’s plenty of that, too); this tropical city is bursting with museums, galleries, restaurants and golf courses, all living up to the discerning standards of its well-heeled residents. Shop at the high-end boutiques on world-famous Worth Avenue, just steps away, or stroll across Clematis Street, lined with antique stores, nightspots and historical landmarks. Be sure to also visit Flagler Museum, a 55-room mansion built in 1902, and to explore the National Croquet Center – the largest such facility in the entire world.
After dark, there’s a variety of bars and music venues to enjoy, but you’d be remiss to skip one of the shows at the hotel itself. Not only is there music at Polo throughout the week – including Motown on Fridays – but Royal Room turns into an unforgettable cabaret seasonally, featuring artists like singer and tap dancer Tommy Tune and jazz guitarist John Pizzarelli.
