SPECIAL CATEGORY HISTORICAL BOUTIQUE - Since 1947, The Colony has been at the center of Palm Beach social life hosting U.S. Presidents, European royalty and American "snowbirds" down for the winter season and all manner of discriminating travelers from around the world. Its location is ideal; adjacent to world famous Worth Avenue in the center of the town and a football field length from Palm Beach`s best beach.
A true “boutique” hotel, small in size with a distinct personality, The Colony exudes charm and a truly friendly feeling. Some guests stay for weeks, even months. Many life long friendships have begun at the pool and lively conversation is a constant during cocktail-hour at the famous Polo bar or the relaxed and airy Palm Court.
Although small, The Colony is a full-service hotel with room service, concierge, valet parking, great food and top-notch music and entertainment. There are no conventions as such but many small, upscale corporate, political and university meetings. Dignitaries are a frequent occurrence and recently have included Presidents Bush and Clinton, Prince Edward and Princess Sofia and many others.
The Polo Steakhouse, Palm Beach`s Best and most unique Steakhouse. Perhaps the only steakhouse anywhere having Al Fresco Dining and classic Tableside Cooking. The Steaks and Standing Ribs are personally selected by Chef de Cuisine Steve Darling from large U.S.D.A. Polo`s cozy bar is a pleasant social club for Palm Beachers who come for good conversation; perfect martinis and great music. Friday is Motown night when the dancing spills onto the Pool Deck until the wee hours.
Full English breakfasts draw not just hotel guests but also “the Ladies who Lunch” crowd complete with little doggies and big hats. Also Martini and Mojito hour presenting Martinis made properly and Nick`s organic Mojito. A huge cheese wheel is on the bar.
The Colony Hotel`s celebrated Royal Room - which The Palm Beach Post has hailed as “probably the best place for cabaret on the planet”.
Furthermore, the incredible music at The Colony isn`t limited to the celebrated Royal Room. The hotel`s excellent Polo Steakhouse is featuring “Motown Friday Nights” every week with the multi-talented R&B band Memory Lane. Music starts at 9 p.m. and goes through midnight or later (subject to change).
