The staff at the door, the front desk, the concierge, the restaurant, maintenance, and cleaning were friendly and competent. We arrived before the 4:00 pm check in time but they had a room ready and we were able to move in around 2:30 pm. For the price, just south of $500, the bedroom and bath were small and the view...

If you don't mind paying $450 a night for a tired postage stamp size room in an outdated hotel with a small pool, no gift shop to buy toiletries, no workout facility, or other amenities you'd expect at this price point, then The Colony is for you. The only plus is a prime location in the heart of Palm Beach... More

Our Colony Hotel will be undergoing renovations over the Summer, 2014. A project that will impact our rooms and common areas will beggin shortly after our high season has finished, expected to be completed in the fall. In the hands of Carleton Varney, we are taking a classic and making it a little more contemporary, without compromising the distinctive Palm... More

We just returned from a long weekend visit to Palm Beach. The Colony is only 2 blocks away from Worth Avenue and a few blocks from the water, so it is a great location. Our room had been recently refurbished, and while small, it was adequate. The bathroom was very small with a walk in shower and no bath, so... More

Betsy, thank you so much for your feed back. I could not agree more regarding our location. Being 1/2 block away from Worth Avenue and just 1 block away from the beach, The Colony Hotel has the best location on the island of Palm Beach! The hotel does not have a sundries shop, but we do have Cafe 155, which... More

Walk to great shopping on Worth Avenue, great restaurants, the ocean. The hotel has a small but lovely pool. The room had plenty of closet and drawer space. Bathroom was very dated and soaps and shampoos all scented like cheap dishwashing liquid. Definitely bring your own. Super comfortable beds with the most wonderfully soft linens. I asked the concierge about... More

We decided to stay @ the Colony based on the location. Worth Ave is literally around the corner & the beach is a block away. When we checked in the front desk agent acted like she was doing me a favor by checking me in. Not a smile, not a welcome, nothing. Usually the front desk agents welcome you &... More

I recall the lady and her comments quite well. The Colony was built in 1947 in the British Colonial style. Our 5th floor was totally rebuilt last summer, everything, including a totally new air conditioning system. Decor is by Carleton Varney of Dorothy Draper Co. (think the Greenbrier, Grand Hotel Mackinac Island, the White House).Colorful, lively look but we don't... More

I had an awful experience dealing with The Colony while attempting to book a block of rooms for my wedding guests. The sales team generously offered their rooms at 20% over rates that were available online, and they were uncommunicative around the requisite contract - leaving my guests unable to book rooms. I had clearly communicated to The Colony that... More

Ryan, as previously stated through e-mails, The Colony Hotel values your family's patronage of our Hotel, and will continue to do so. As usual, all friends and family members that are staying at our hotel over the wedding dates will experience our customary Colony hospitality. More

This is the second time I've stayed at the Colony and I am always impressed by the quality of service. It's hard to single people out but the Front desk were most accommodating, the breakfast staff were charming and attentive, the coffee was top notch and the orange juice was freshly squeezed. The rooms were quiet and comfortable. I thought... More

Although the hotel is old and the bath rooms are not contemporary, they have been somewhat updated. The hotel is a wonderful place to relax and be away from the hustle and bustle of a large hotel. The staff id so attentive to every detail, they bend over backwards to make you feel comfortable and cared for. love it!

We attended a dinner and cabaret featuring Michel Bell & Catherine Matejka the day after Thanksgiving. The dinner and service were excellent and the wine list was exceptional. The show was very good with a wide variety of music and Michel was great at telling little stories to introduce each song. I do think that the use of the microphone... More

Things were a little rocky at check in when there was initial confusion over who would help us and we got a room overlooking an ugly rooftop although the hotel did not appear to be booked. But, things vastly improved from there. The bell staff and concierge were very helpful and we eventually got a lovely room on the 5th... More
