Where is the best place to stay?

Hi Guys ~ My husband and I are thinking of planning a trip last week of May - we are in our early 30's no children .... would like something upscale right on the beach - close to shopping, restaurants, etc ........ Is Singer Island our best bet? ....... thanks :)

Really upscale is not Singer Island or West Palm. Actually, there is no beach in West Palm. THE beach is on Palm Beach (Island)

One of the top of the lines are the Breakers. www.thebreakers.com

Biggest downfall here is the cost...but there will probably be specials as May is not the busiest time of the year.

Also look for others (check the Palm Beach TA forums.

Back to Singer Island. This is considered an 'up and coming' area.

There are several timeshares there. We just returned from the Marriott Ocean Point 2 bed 2 bath. Beach was very short, with big drop into the water. Ocea n temps were high 70s F.

Near the MOP is another T/S that used to be the Radission. It was also pretty busy. Down the beach (going N ) is a Hilton and a Holiday Inn Crowne Royal (?).....plus many smaller mom & pop type places.

For the beauty and ambiance, however, if you need that area, look to Palm Beach first. (Just S is Manalapan...Ritz Carton...also nice)

The breakers special rate till June 30 for extended days is $279. In July (HOT) it is $229 a nite. Food is very expensive there.

Check coupons on www.testasrestaurant.com Don't belive the reviews, the place is good....across street from Breakers golf course

Also pretty good...(a bit pricey) was Charlies Crab...one block S of Worth Ave on Ocean. (It is part of a chain)

Well....if you had read tug or ts4rums or been a TA SE fl volunteer, you would have asked to a free dinner party at Marriott Ocean Point....

Beach was terrible last week, wasn't it? But weather was great.

If they lose much more sand.......

I still think the Breakers is the place to be for a first time visit...and on in Palm Beach Village....not Riveria beach or Palm Beach Shores (until THEY preuse the area.

Kelly....Singer Island is a nice place to stay. Ck the Resort (Starwood property just opened) It is terrific! The beach is very nice also! Like any beach anywhere the bottom changes and you may have a dropoff at times.

Go to Singer Island...Breakers?....uh uh! old school, stuffy and mostly a conf hotel...rooms are very tired and gloomy...except for the ones right on the water but so what...they are still tired...

Singer Island is great...some people complained about svc etc...dont listen to them...the place is new....bound to be some hiccups at the start...restauant is also good...Solu...not too much else in that part of Florida for food....very basic menus...from Toronto and used to better quality restaurants (ala NYC)....not here...Resort at Singer your best bet....

Great staff...concierge (Frank and the other two guys - dont remember their names!) are really good people....

Downtown at The Gardens offers The Strip House, City Kitchen..PGA Commons has Spoto's, Vic and Angelo's, Sushi Jo, Also along PGA Carmine's Ocean Grill and on the Intracoastal is the Riverhouse and Seasons 52! All great choices and no more than 15 minutes from the new Resort on Singer Island.

We used to go to The Rutledge hotel. It was a mom and pop place but very affordable and the beach was fantastic with the best beach water around!

I know The Rutledge is no longer there. They tore down for condos.

Is there somewhere else on Singer Island like The Rutledge that we can stay?

We want something clean and affordable. Mom and pop is ok with us. We just want to kick back and dig our toes in the sand without spending lots of $$$.

We just returned from Cancun MX. It was nice but we miss the water at Singer Island!

Help please!!! Must be clean. You can pm me is you wish. Thanks!

No, unfortunately we all miss the Rutledge. In fact, the Palm Beach Post had an article about it a few wks ago. The condos are now on hold as Real Estate Slowed WAY down! So you now have an empty lot. I think the only Hotels left at that end of Singer Island (North of Blue Heron) are the Crowne Plaza and the Hilton. Both real close to the Rutledge beach, the Hilton is the first lot South. The Crowne Plaza is slated to become Marriott Timeshare Towers soon! South of there the Sea Spray is still an Oceanfront old time hotel, sorry I haven't been in a room there. Also a few cottage court type hotels not on the beach and a couple at the Sailfish Marina. Don't wait too long, Singer Island is changing quickly!
