Our Stay at the Chic and Iconic Chesterfield Palm Beach

Our Stay at the Chic and Iconic Chesterfield Palm Beach

My husband and I travel to Florida often but usually travel to the same destinations.  We decided to embark on a mini-tour of Florida.  Palm Beach has topped our travel bucket list.  After landing at Fort Lauderdale Airport, we headed to the Chesterfield Palm Beach for our first nights stay.

Palm Beach

 

A little history

The Chesterfield Palm Beach is located in  the heart of a residential section of Palm Beach. The hotel was designed in the manner of a European bed and breakfast, it was built as The Lido-Venice in 1926 and renamed The Vineta in 1928. The hotel was renovated in 1937 by Palm Beach architect John L. Volk. The hotel is registered with the Palm Beach Preservation foundation as a historical landmark.  Named The Chesterfield Palm Beach in 1989, the hotel today is a proud member of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection and Small Luxury Hotels of the World.

Palm Beach

The Chesterfield Palm Beach is a boutique hotel where attention is paid to the smallest details. It is a quick 10 minute walk from the white-sand shores of Palm Beach and is 3 blocks from upscale shopping on Worth Avenue.

On-site amenities include an outdoor pool, a poolside eatery and a library. There’s an ornate restaurant and lounge offering all meals and live entertainment. The hotel hosts afternoon tea and valet parking is complimentary.

The hotel consists of 42 Superior and Deluxe Rooms and 11 luxurious Suites. Every room is unique; each is a statement in luxury and exclusivity, fitted with marble bathrooms.

The Chesterfield Palm Beach offers a luxurious getaway that also welcomes families and couples. This boutique style hotel provides you with a sense of peaceful seclusion.  Although we were only here for one night, we truly made the best of our stay and enjoyed all the property had to offer.  Service is their top priority from the moment you pull up to the hotel.

Upon our arrival we were greeted with valet parking.   The front hotel staff were extremely friendly and made the check-in process seamless.

From the moment you step foot into this hotel you can see how much thought has gone into every detail.   This hotel is absolutely picturesque, with every single corner beautifully decorated and manicured.  The decor is very unique and inviting. The plush linens and the cloud like mattress made for one of the most comfortable and memorable sleeps I have ever had.


The television remote was event sanitized and sealed in a bag.  Everything in the room was luxurious, from the sheets to the towels.

The Pool Area

The pool area is set in a plush green, secluded garden – if you didn’t see it for yourself, you wouldn’t even know it exists. It’s  a great place to escape for a quiet relaxing pool side retreat.

Pink towels, lemonade, and fruit provide poolside treats. Guests can order from lounge menus on pink fans. The Courtyard at the entry of the hotel is another place for al fresco dining.

Tea Time

We were lucky enough to enjoy the British tradition of Afternoon Tea that is served daily between 1pm – 5m.

We enjoyed loose-leaf teas served with a great selection of indulgent treats.  I enjoyed the Earl Grey tea.

We started with the dainty English sandwiches and seasonal pastries.  Trust me, you will want to try one of everything so come with your appetite.  We patiently waited for the hand-baked traditional British scones with clotted cream and strawberry preserve.  These are worth the wait.  The aroma of these freshly baked treats will have you craving for more.

The Leopard Lounge

Palm Beach

The hand-painted red and white ceiling combined with black patent leather banquettes and plantation ceiling fans radiate a sensual but refined vibe.

Don’t be fooled by the elegant settings of the Leopard Lounge.  The Lounge comes alive after dark with an energetic vibe brought on by the live music and dancing.   My husband and I enjoyed some drinks before heading back to our room and even had our feet tapping to the live music.

Breakfast at the Courtyard

The Courtyard is an enchanted European garden with the feel of the tropics.  It is a tranquil setting where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea.  We enjoyed our breakfast here and didn’t want to leave.

Of course I had the Eggs Benedict – it is my favourite.

For breakfast you can opt for the continental buffet style breakfast or you can choose from a selection of delicious breakfast menu items.

I would highly recommend a stay at the Chesterfield Palm Beach on your visit to Palm Beach.  Even if you are just passing by, I would suggest to come and get swept away in the gardens before heading out to Worth Street for some great shopping.

Thank you to the Chesterfield Palm Beach for hosting our stay.  Follow them on Instagram for inspiring photos.  Be sure to follow me on Instagram as well to follow our travel adventures.

    I love the afternoon tea – so civilized! The rooms look more like a home then a hotel, which is always so nice. Glad you had a good getaway.
