Located in one of South Florida’s most charming regions, the Chesterfield Hotel, Palm Beach, is a historic landmark that has been brilliantly transformed into a boutique 4-star hotel. Upon original construction in 1926, this building was designed with the style and flare of a European bed and breakfast. Although restorations have since been made, the historic qualities of this property have remained intact. The Chesterfield has now found its niche as a member of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection as well as the Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intercoastal Waterway, the Chesterfield sits in the heart of town, making all the pleasures of Palm Beach easily accessible. You will find yourself only three blocks away from white-sand beaches and a short drive from the metropolitan area of West Palm Beach’s business district. The world famous shopping haven along Worth Avenue lies just two blocks from the hotel where over 250 shops, jewelers, and boutiques await your arrival. Shopping here includes designer names such as Cartier, Chanel, Jimmy Choo and Louis Vuitton. With fourteen million dollars in renovations, you will be surrounded by pristinely manicured boulevards lined with rows of palms. Let us not forget the customary pastel hues of Palm Beach’s architecture which truly give you that legendary South Florida feel.
And ladies, have no fear…while you satisfy your shopping needs, the man in your life can fulfill his vacation dreams by visiting one of the two golf courses found within five minutes of the hotel. Together you can attend the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts and enjoy a performance by Ballet Florida or Palm Beach Opera. For those of you that are art lovers, the Norton Museum of Art features a wide array of 19th and 20th century art consisting of European, American, Chinese and Contemporary pieces. Two venues also worth considering are the Meyer Amphitheatre housing outdoor concerts by local performers and the Coral Sky Amphitheatre highlighting nationally recognized artists. If you are traveling with kids, the South Florida Science Museum is a must see as it presents a chance to experience a variety of hands-on exhibits and discover the wonder of salt-water aquariums.
