U.S. News Review

This historic property has been catering to the who's who of snowbirds — 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. If you don't book a room at this mainstay on Hammon Avenue in central Palm Beach, you should at least swing by the bar area for a little people watching. The old-school ambience lures the who's who of Palm Beach's social set, and the cocktails are none too shabby either. If you do stay at The Colony, you can expect soft bedding (credit the feather duvets) and an excellent front-desk staff and knowledgeable concierge. Keep in mind that there has been the odd complaint about other employees at The Colony, particularly at the Polo Steaks & Seafood restaurant. Although they say the food is excellent, many travelers lament the feeling of being rushed that was imposed by the wait staff. However, for many guests, The Colony is a staple of any Palm Beach location due to its upscale atmosphere and prime location near some of the areas best shopping venues.
