Simply the best of everything. The property is meticulously maintained and very beautiful. The clientele is discriminating; this is a refined and well-mannered place (probably not the best destination for young travellers looking for revelry). Families with well-behaved children mix seamlessly with the old guard. Food, especially at the Flagler Staeakhouse, is excellent. The pool/beach area accomodates a wide range... More

I stayed at this property in August of 2007 and decided to write and give my honest feedback. The property itself is truly vast. The lobby as you enter is very grand. I booked 2 ocean front rooms and honestly was not impressed. Like other readers - felt the rooms overall needed major updating. The elevators leading to the rooms... More

I know I'm supposed to think the Breakers is the best hotel ever since its one of the most famous in Florida, but I was underwhelmed. The building itself is a pretty landmark, the grounds are well manicured, and the lobby and common areas are very old world and impressive. While I really prefer modern hotels, I can appreciate old... More

Attended a conference here for 3 nights. The inside of the main building is very impressive. Artwork and architecture that you just don't find anywhere anymore. The My room was extremely nice. Ocean view, spotless, with a big bathroom with all the amenities you would expect at a first rate property like the Breakers. The beach is small (and very... More

We did not know what to expect from the Breakers . We stayed for 4 nights off-season in October - the first three nights were great - the hotel was very quiet and peaceful - and it was easy to get beds and umbrellas by the pool, or book in for golf/tennis or the spa. Apparently it is manic in... More

We stayed at the Breakers for 5 days and nights and I wish I could have gotten more of a discount then they offered. We were booked for a king room, which we got, and then some we were actually upgraded into a suite, which was a bonus the down side is we were on the same floor that they... More

The Breakers was a splurge for Columbus Day weekend. We needed to meet friends somewhere beautiful and easy for a relaxing weekend, and The Breakers was perfect. The hotel was hosting two large meetings. Pools weren't crowded, restaurants weren't booked, and the beach was empty. Of course if you wanted to book a ballroom, you were probably out of luck....

I took my daughters, ages 4 and 6, down to Palm Beach for 4 days. The place is amazing. THe staff goes out of its way to be accommodating and helpful. The pools are great and stay clean because they don't allow food anywhere near the pool. Ditto for drinks. I don't think we saw a spot of litter anywhere... More

I just spent 4 incredible days at The Breakers. If you are looking for excellent service you will get it here. EVERYONE at the hotel was extremely polite and accommodating. The food is very good, however, very expensive, but at a hotel like this you should expect that. There are plenty of great restaurants in the area if you choose... More

Upon checking in we were given a subpar room with outdated electronics, poor views, and a less than stellar scent. When we wanted to leave (and go to Maimi instead) we were told that we would have to pay $300 to leave! It's absurd. After negotiations, we were "excused" free of charge. Not the best experience. The food at Ocean... More
