Effortlessly refined, gracious with a touch of wit, and filled with 20th and 21st-century original artwork, the design for this new Palm Beach destination is a contemporary interpretation of Mediterranean revival architecture. Built in the 1920s and designated a historic landmark in 1980, the designers respectfully reimagined the hotel, creating 13 rooms and 19 suites while honoring historic preservation criteria.

From the gracious lobby areas to each spacious suite, the interiors are infused with the spirit of an art collector’s breezy residence. Layered finishes and patterns against a palette of soft warm and cool neutrals celebrate the hotel’s collection of museum quality artwork. Sprinkled throughout are one-of-a kind custom design details and furniture pieces that add a sense of playfulness while supporting the high-level service promise. The resulting laid-back, textural, easy style lovingly honors its historic setting while introducing a new design voice suited for today’s sophisticated global guest.
