You don't need to rent a car! Located only a ten minute cab ride from PBI airport. Walk to restaurants, charming shops, grocery stores, The Breakers, Flagler Museum, Incoastal Bike/walking path, the beach, etc.
If you do plan to have a car, there is unrestricted parking on nearby neighboring streets. Sunrise Ave, where the Hotel is located, has one hour parking restrictions from 9 AM to 6 PM seven days a week. You can park overnight, but should have your vehicle moved by 10 AM to neighboring streets with unrestricted parking. We often have a car and never have difficulty in finding a space on North County Rd or Bradley Place above Seminole Ave. Everything we need and enjoy is walking distance to the Hotel so guests truly don't need a car. We are just a ten minute cab ride from Palm Beach International Airport. Back in 1925 when the Hotel was built, let's face it there were very few cars!
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 with king bed and one with twin beds), each with its own full bath and flat screen 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) completes the picture. Maximum capacity is four. Free Wireless Internet reception in rooms, mezzanine/library area, lobby and loggia area near pool. Utilities included.
Newly renovated lobby and mezzanine has a library and game tables, 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 11 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 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 to ask any questions you may have.

Why the Owner Chose Palm Beach, FL, USA:
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 getting 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,
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:

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!
