Palm Beach is the eastern most town in Florida, located on a 16-mile (26 km) long barrier island. The area we are located in is only three blocks wide from Intercoastal to the ocean. This unique resort community is filled with history and character that are reflected in its architecture, landscape and business community. The island boasts some of the most majestic and stunning homes in the world. The Atlantic Gulf Stream approaches the Palm Beach County coast closer than anywhere in the nation, bringing warm waters from the south. Palm Beach's moderate climate allows for outdoor activities throughout the year. Summer temperatures are tempered by ocean breezes.

Palm Beach Island is only three blocks wide where the Hotel is located. Minutes to the beach!Our quiet, charming, sunny two bedroom, NON-SMOKING condo is located in the heart of downtown Palm Beach at the Palm Beach Hotel, 235 Sunrise Avenue, and is designated an Historic Landmark. Our relaxing, suite is located on the third floor (building has two elevators and a handicap ramp for easy accessibility). The unit has two bedrooms (one king and one with twin beds), each with its own full bath and TV. There is a small kitchenette with sink, microwave, toaster oven, small refrigerator, dishes, silverware, coffee pot as well as a breakfast bar. Living room/sitting area (TV/DVD) completes the picture. Maximum capacity is four. Wireless Internet reception in rooms, mezzanine/library area, lobby and loggia area near pool. Utilities included.

Newly renovated lobby and mezzanine/library/game room, laundry room on lower level. Over the last few years, there have been numerous upgrades at the Hotel. It is perfect for a mini and fun vacation.

Walk to at least ten different restaurants! Relax in our tropical heated pool or on the large loggia enjoying a treat from the adjoining French Bakery. Walk to several houses of worship.(We are next door neighbors of St. Edwards Church, the Kennedy family parish in Palm Beach.) Bike rental shop in building with Intercoastal bike/walking trail just one block west. The beach is just one block east.Brand new Publix grocery around the corner.

FROMMERS TRAVEL GUIDE describes the Palm Beach Hotel: “An excellent and affordable alternative right in the middle of Palm Beach's commercial section is a condominium that operates as a hotel, too:..... this clean and comfortable place for accommodations is a great option for those looking for the rare bargain in Palm Beach.”

Just a ten minute taxi ride (approx. $20.00) from Palm Beach International Airport (PBI) our guests really don't need to rent a car. Located between the Atlantic ocean and Intercoastal you can walk to beach (one block east), Flagler Museum, numerous houses of worship, The Breakers Hotel, grocery stores, charming shops along Royal Poinciana and just a little bit further, famous, fabulous Worth Avenue. Just walk over Flagler Bridge to West Palm Beach and all its restaurants and tourist sights. This is indeed LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.

Remember, Palm Beach isn't just for the rich and famous. Our beach chairs are waiting! (With the additional charges now for luggage weight and checked in luggage we have added four beach towels to the unit for the convenience of our guests - If used, PLEASE WASH AND DRY THEM IN THE BASEMENT COIN LAUNDRY AS HOUSEKEEPING DOES NOT TAKE RESPONSIBLITY FOR THEM. Many thanks :) Please feel free to email for additional photos and ask any questions you may have.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Betty and Bob:



Thank you for renting your condo unit at the Palm Beach Hotel to us this past week. We had a wonderful time and your condo worked out well and was the perfect location.



We really appreciated your recommended places to eat and shop; they were terrific.



Based on this past winter in Florida, we lucked out on the weather as there were only two days of rain and the temperatures were in the mid-70s. Our daughters, as well as ourselves, enjoyed the beautiful beach almost every day.



Thank you again for helping to make this a wonderful March Break vacation.

Hi:

We were blessed to purchase this unit back in 1994 when prices were .... affordable.

We are delighted to share it with others, at reasonable prices.

Rev. Robert and Betty Godley (retired)

Murrells Inlet, South Carolina

formally Rector for 35 years at:

St. Barnabas Episcopal Church

Ardsley, New York

Betty and Bob Godley purchased this condo in 1994

We fell in love with The Palm Beach Hotel the minute we saw the outside. The charm and architectural beauty won our hearts immediately. We redid the unit and made it comfortable and relaxing for ourselves, family and guests. We have watched the building go through some wonderful renovations over the years. We even touched base with the family of the original builder who completed the Hotel in 1925 and helped in gettng the Hotel designated an National Historic Landmark in 2009.

The location is the best! We delight in not having to rent a car, but instead enjoy just walking to the beach, superb restaurants like Testa's, (great Sunset special if in by 6:00 PM), Cucina Dell' Arte, The Breakers with its numerous restaurants. Also more casual dining like Toojay's, or even breakfast at Green's Pharmacy! We love renting bikes from the bike shop on the ground floor of our Hotel and riding along the intercoastal bike path, just around the corner. Flagler Bridge is nearby and we often walk over it to West Palm Beach and catch the trolley (free) near Bradley's Restaurant on Flagler Drive, and go over to City Place for shopping, movies and more great restaurants. Or...just walk down past Bradley's and enjoy all the restaurants on Clematis Street in West Palm. (Trolley has stop there as well)

We are delighted to hear from our guests and have over the last year had many return and enjoyed the area again and again! Our prices are very reasonable for the area. We understand what it is like to take a vacation, especially with children....we have five! Usually expensive! They will enjoy it here between the pool and the beach they will be exhausted. With a small kitchenette and a great brand new Publix Supermarket just around the corner, you are set!

We enjoy the Hotel year round! With low off season prices from May until November, you can't beat this location for a fun relaxing vacation.

Thanks for checking us out and we hope you enjoy your stay,

Beach a short walk East. Super restaurants .... all walking distance. Relaxing Tropical pool!

Charming and convenient shops along Royal Poinciana Way, two minutes walk south! The Breakers...

just past Royal Poinciana Way...in all its glory! (and expense!!) This location is just a wonderful place to just relax and be comfortable!

WE LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful building! We never thought it would be possible to find such an affordable place in Palm Beach. Our unit was small, but it was clean and comfortable, and perfect for a family with two young children. The heated pool and sitting area in the tropical gardens were spectacular. The publix grocery store was right across the street, and very convenient. We could walk to the beach, and milkshakes at Greene's Pharmacy were a real treat. Also, there was lots of shopping and great restaurants within walking distance. We loved our unit in the Palm Beach Hotel, and hope to return.

GREAT LOCATION, CHARMING PLACE

  • 4 of 5
I chose the Historic Palm Beach Hotel for its charming appeal. The owners, Bob & Betty were so kind and they emailed me 3 pages of valuable information for local dining, shopping and activities. The space was small but enough size for what I needed. This place was a perfect last minute getaway. I was celebrating my 50th Birthday and Bob & Betty sent me wonderful chocolates. The location could not be better. It is within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, bike path, and shops. Hotel staff was extremely friendly. All around great vacation!

THIS APT FELT LIKE OUR SECOND HOME

  • 5 of 5
We like it so much we have already booked it for next year

As soon as we arrived, it felt like home. Two nicely furnished bedrooms, one with king, and living room. Two bathrooms and a convenient kitchen with everything you need to cook whatever you want. Air-conditioned, too. Perfect location with Publix supermarket, drugstore, dry cleaners, excellent restaurants, (Testa, PB Catch and Trevani), banks plus beach all within walking distance. We were there for a month and it was a wonderful experience. Next year we have booked the apartment for 6 weeks.

JUNE GETAWAY WITH MY SISTER AND MY DAUGHTER

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the Palm Beach Hotel condo three nights. Our time spent here was very relaxing and low key. The Publix across the street was a great place to get breakfast in the mornings. And we also enjoyed some wine and cheese selections from there as well. The unit was very clean and comfortable. The layout was nice that the living room/sitting area seperated the bedroom suites. Also the Hotel itself was very quiet during our stay. A couple of mornings we walked the block and a half to the ocean. I would definitely like to stay at this unit again and I hope to bring my Mom next time.

APRIL VACATION

  • 4 of 5
My stay at the Palm Beach Hotel was good. The unit was small, but we knew that going in. With that said, it was very clean, beds were "comfy" and showers were excellent! We also thought the unit to be priced correctly. In terms of improvement, we were disappointed in the size and age of the television sets and the size of the refrigerator. In fact, the TV in the master bedroom did not work after day 2. We were also disappointed that the pool was not heated. The water was very cool. We were informed that the heat pump had just broken days before our visit. In a few more weeks, I'm sure it won't matter. We met the President of the Board of Directors, Shay, and he was most friendly and encouraged us to come back once the construction was all complete. I do believe if the above improvements were made and the construction complete as well as the pool being heated in April that I would upgrade my review to "excellent". Thank you very much for the nice stay! Oh yeah....we loved Green's Diner!! Very friendly and good food!

Owner's Response: Dear Steve and Family:

Thank you for your review on our condo. So glad you had a good time.

We are sorry the TV in the master gave you trouble. We immediately checked with the realtor who takes our booking and they said it is working. Not sure if maybe the wall switch there was turned off, which also regulates that socket the TV is connected to. Maura and Heather know the unit well and if there is ever a problem, it should be reported to them and they will see it is corrected very quickly

We do have plans to replace the living/sitting area TV within the next two months. Hesitated to having its replacement shipped so waiting until we arrive ourselves to replace it.

You are certainly right about Green's. It is like stepping back in time to the luncheonettes/soda fountains of fifty or sixty years ago. You can see why it was a favorite of JFK!

Thanks again for booking our suite and our best wishes for a delightful Spring and upcoming Summer.
Warm regards,
Betty and Bob
