U.S. News Review

Recently taken over by Kimpton, this modern, minimalist hotel features 134 rooms — most of which boast balconies or terraces for guests to bask in the sea views afforded by its oceanfront perch on South Ocean Boulevard. Other in-suite amenities include Italian linens and yoga mats. While recent guests do note that hallways are dark and guest room walls aren't very insulated, they appreciated the personal touches this resort offers like the nightly wine reception in the lobby and complimentary cruiser bikes to explore Palm Beach. The resort also boasts the Tideline Spa, which offers a variety of treatments, such as facials and massages, as well as a palm tree-lined infinity pool with private cabanas. The new on-site restaurant and bar, Brandon's, receives praise not only for its new takes on American classics but its friendly and accomodating customer service.

Critic Reviews

Hotel Chatter

“Formerly, the Omphoy Resort and before that, the Palm Beach Hilton, The Tideline is still working on its new look (namely expanding the Tideline Spa) but already, the 134-room oceanfront resort has adopted all of the Kimpton brand standards like free WiFi for Karma members, the "Forgot it? We've got it!" toiletry menu, complimentary coffee and tea in the living room, a hosted wine hour in the evenings, and an in-room yoga kit.”
