The Colony Hotel was our 'home base' for our recent South Florida wedding, and we could not have been more thrilled with the experience from start to finish. The professional and thoughtful events and room sales teams were incredible, and our guests very much enjoyed well appointed rooms and the beautiful pool and facilities. We hosted a 160-person dinner and... More

We have been to the Colony many times. Best Cabaret on the Atlantic shore of Florida. Dining is excellent, although Cafe Boulud at the Brazilian Court is better. Lobby is intimate and first rate. Rooms are small; get a villa or a suite. Close to beach and Worth Avenue.

This hotel purports to be a high class hotel and prides itself on its lengthy history..Well, I have been to many first class hotels in Europe and the Far East, and this place is barely one step above a Motel 6 in Fargo, ND. The location is excellent if you want to be near shopping but that's about all that... More

Karen K, General Manager at Colony Hotel, responded to this review

Our staff is really puzzled by this review. Our conclusion is that the writer was not an overnight guest at The Colony. Truthfully, The Colony is known locally as a happy, friendly hotel with fine food and service. The decor is traditional but not hip; Carleton Varney is our Interior Designer. As to the "indifferent" management, that would be me,... More

Tiny room, tinier bathroom. Overpriced at $400 per night. Looked out on the parking lot. No coffee in the room. No ice machines anywhere. Rooms were clean enough but cheaply renovated, could have been a classier reno. Public areas were nice. Staff nice, but if we hadn't had to pay for 4 days in advance we would have checked out.

It's true our bathrooms are not large which is kind of typical of an older hotel. Perhaps the guest didn't notice the French beveled tile or the Waterworks fixtures and the spotless housekeeping. A few rooms look over the rooftop parking at Sak's 5th Avenue to the pleasing vista of the Town of Palm Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. Palm... More

Had a gorgeous Easter brunch here beside the pool. The service was spectacular and the food at the Polo was great. The rooms areva little old but he charm is unbeatable. If you can splurge on the suite do it - the view is worth it!

Have a confirmation with presidential penthouse on it and it is not the room we got even though we were charged for it. No one cares that it was already booked.

Karen K, Manager at Colony Hotel, responded to this review

Oh, yes, we remember these folks who arrived after, apparently, a liquid lunch on Worth Avenue. The guests in the Presidential Penthouse had not checked out so they were upgraded to our best accommodation, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor Penthouse, which carries a higher rate however, The Colony honored the lower rate.

Although the weather left much to be desired, our stay at The Colony was great. The staff was friendly and accommodating. It is a bit on the expensive side, but a delicious breakfast (off the menu) is included. It's a short walk to the beach and the hotel provides chairs, umbrellas, and towels. There is also a pool on the... More

Pleasant public areas. Restaurant service is very bad, waiting one and a half hours for a meal that was mediocre at best. No communication from waiter, who barely spoke English. What a lost opportunity.!!!! Was able to easily get table when all the other restaurants in town were packed. I now know why.

I've been to the colony quite a few times and every time I go I have a better experience. I always book a villa with two floors and I find those the most comfortable. I really do find the colony a beautiful place with great ambiance.
