The property's British colonial architecture and classic decor reflect both its storied history and its luxurious reputation.

The old-school ambience 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 areas best shopping venues. Plus, you'll find many of West Palm Beach's sights within a short drive.

Critic Reviews



This property is situated in the heart of the popular stomping ground for the rich and famous and is within walking distance of the many boutique-style shops of the world-famous Worth Avenue. This hotel has a classic elegance that exudes sophistication.



In 2014, nearly $10 million was spent to redecorate and refurbish every room at the island's legendary British colonial-style hotel. Sky and ocean blues and greens and sunset corals from the natural scene outside its windows, along with a banana leaf and tropical bloom motif, were brought indoors by decorator Carleton Varney.
