Dark woods and quirky fabrics only add to this hotel’s distinct charm. No 2 rooms at the property look the same. Making each stay even more personal, all reservations and experiences are uniquely tailored to each guest.

Located in an elegant building from 1923, the Palm Beach Historic Inn was lovingly restored and redesigned. The guest rooms are now full of European charm and modern functionality.

White Elephant Palm Beach
Price: From $895 per night
A sophisticated Palm Beach property, the White Elephant has recently received a total 5-star renovation. Originally built in 1924, this stylish spot maintained its original footprint and façade, but the interior got a complete redesign.
The contemporary Mediterranean influences are apparent in details like woven rugs, colorful artisanal tiles, and soft color palettes. These design elements capture the spirit of Palm Beach while adding a distinctly European flair.
The hotel offers a custom service experience, with a pre-arrival concierge on hand to handle reservations and airport transfers so guests can enjoy their stay without worry. The 24-hour front desk is always available to tend to any request you may have. Guests can shop till they drop at the on-site retail boutique or get a workout in at the fitness center.
The beautiful beaches are obviously a huge draw for visitors looking to experience an upscale holiday in Palm Beach, but there are plenty of arts, restaurants, bars, and shops to enjoy, too. Whatever you’re in town for, know that any of these boutique properties will match the upscale vibes of this famed Florida town.
