We recently had a family wedding in Palm Beach and our out of town guests stayed at the Colony. Everyone loved It. Great location, excellent rooms and the staff was exceptionally attentive. We could not have asked for more.

The hotel is nice overall. BUT; If you don't lookalike a Caucasian or are not over 50+ age, they don't treat you nicely. Especially the African Amerrican employees. They should be more sensitive regarding that , but they were the worst. So sad!

Me thinks Hasancan1 a bit too sensitive. Our staff is from all over the world and we definitely do not discriminate. Actually, there are no African Americans in the front of the house but there are staffers of color from the Bahamas, Haiti, Jamaica, etc. (all of them friendly and professional). More

I've stayed at the Colony several times when in Palm Beach on business. My wife joined me on this trip. We had an excellent experience. The staff could not be more helpful in every way. They are there when you want/need them and do not hover. The rooms have fine furnishings and the linens superb. The bathrooms are small, but... More

I just returned from a four night stay at The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach. I cannot wait to plan another visit back to this hotel. The staff of the hotel was wonderful to us! Thanks everyone for taking care of us as we celebrated a birthday event. It is great to be taken care of by the staff and... More

We had a family function/reunion in early June. Palm Beach is slow at that time. The hotel was quite nice, but there was no coffee in the room nor in the lobby. You have to wait for the"155" to open at 7:00 (8:00 on Sunday) to get a cup. The desk did go to the kitchen to get me a... More

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!
