Palm Beach, FL
The Brazilian Court Hotel is an upscale, luxury hotel on Palm Beach’s ritzy coast. Rooms look like lush apartments, complete with Egyptian cotton bedding, custom furniture and jetted tubs. Select units display terraces or patios that overlook the grounds. One-bedroom suites present separate rooms, perfect for families who need more room or want extra privacy. Cafe Boulud is a French-American restaurant at the hotel. Its atmosphere is casual enough for any family to feel comfortable, and the food is high-quality. The cafe is the first offshoot from Chef Zach Bell’s branch in Manhattan.
For fun, families can rent bikes onsite and explore the area. An outdoor heated pool is often a family hotspot, as is the beach. Sophisticated Mommas (or Poppas) can get coiffed at the Frederic Fekkai Salon & Spa onsite. Pets are also welcomed with a special treat upon arrival. The Beach Club adds another level of sophistication, with a private yoga studio, beachside dining service and exclusive poolside cabanas.

I checked in and found the reception staff courteous, helpful and friendly. They promptly offered a newly renovated room. The room was spacious and well-appointed with large bedroom and large bathroom combined with ample closet storage. The shower incidentally was high volume - a nice surprise. The room was also clean and overlooked a quiet courtyard. That night I dined at Cafe Boulud which, while very expensive, was excellent. The bed was comfortable. My total stay was two nights. The staff throughout my time was friendly and twice reached out to make sure my stay was going well. All in all a great stay. I can highly recommend this hotel
