The following is an email I sent to the management office. As of today, I have still not heard back. I never thought that I would need to write a letter to The Breakers about an issue but I feel that I must because, what was a minor issue, is no longer minor. My husband and I as well as other family members have stayed at your hotel multiple times; our last visit included several days in a beautiful, one bedroom suite. During our trip to Florida, we invited my girlfriend to lunch at your hotel as a way to thank her for staying at her home. When we entered the hotel lobby, we went over to your large flower display and my husband wanted to take a picture of my girlfriend and me. We took our masks off for half a second so he could snap the photo and the security guard would not let us take the photo. He said we had to place our masks back on. I thought it was a bit over the top, considering the state of Florida no longer mandates that masks be worn. And, we were wearing our masks the entire time, and only took them off for the split second to have the photo taken. By the way, no photo was taken. We then walked over to lunch at the Seafood Bar and, after we ate, I asked for a cup of coffee. The waitress brought a large French press pot. After enjoying two cups, there was still a lot of coffee left so my husband said that he might as well have a cup, too. He asked the waitress for a cup and saucer, to which she said that she would have to charge another eight dollars. We thought it was a joke at first but she was serious. Needless to say, he declined and we left what was more than half full pot of coffee on the table. I believe that it was a bit inelegant for such a classy hotel, when clearly it was such a large pot that one person could not possibly drink the entire amount. It bothered me that both these staff members could be so petty and lack common sense. I decided to call the restaurant and asked to speak with the dining manager. I gave the hostess my name and phone number and said I had a minor issue I wanted to bring to their attention. The hostess proceeded to place me on hold for more than 10 minutes. She never once came back on the phone and I finally hung up, which is what I think she wanted me to do in the first place. In the early evening, I called the front desk and spoke with Chase. Again, I said it was a minor issue and I wanted to speak with the dining manager at the Seafood Bar. He took my name and number and said he would give it to the manager who was in a meeting that was ending in “five minutes.” I waited and I waited. The woman never called. This is why I am writing to you now. I feel that what was a minor issue has now become emblematic of service lacking empathy and friendliness - especially to returning I will no longer recommend your hotel to my friends and family and will be staying at the Four Seasons. What a shame that a hotel that was acclaimed for raising the bar and the symbol of luxury is now nickel and dimIng people for a cup of coffee.

The Breakers, I’m sorry to report, has lost its fifth star. First, at a Five Star Hotel, you get service. When our room was ready for us, my wife and I had to wait an inordinate amount of time at Reception to pick up our room key, while only two of six Reception Desk stations were manned. Then, in the room, we found no useful information. I had to call Guest Services to find the minibar menu (it’s on tv), and to learn that water is (still) complimentary. Second, at a Five Star Hotel, you don’t get nickeled and dimed. Tell me the price, and I’ll tell you “yes” or “no”. In the dining room, the fresh squeezed orange juice has been dropped from the buffet breakfast in favor of two-star concentrated stuff. On our first day, the waiter brought the cheap stuff, never telling us that the fresh squeezed was available for (a mere) ten dollars and change extra per person charge. [Hint: it’s big, so you can ask the waitstaff to split one order into two glasses.] An espresso added to the buffet breakfast coffee also is no longer included, but can be bought for around nine bucks per shot, I think. That wouldn’t be so bad except the coffee has become two-star weak. Why in the room did they stick me with those little packages of facial tissues, where you have to pry them out one at a time? Was that so that I could protect myself from COVID? Then why in the public pool bathrooms do they have normal pop-up / pull-out tissue boxes for everybody to touch? Doesn’t make sense, unless the hotel is squeezing costs at my expense. Third, at a Five Star Hotel you get uniformity. At breakfast, the waiter comes back to see if everything is okay. In these COVID times, at The Breakers you have to ask for toast, salt and pepper, hot sauce, butter, and jelly. Maybe I forgot something? In six Breakers breakfasts, only two of our waiters came back to check. Finally, at a Five Star Hotel you get a touch of class. The ham carving station at breakfast, which offered something really nice that you simply can’t get at home, is gone. It hasn’t moved from the buffet to the kitchen, so that all you’d have to do is ask. It’s gone (but not forgotten). And I know I shouldn’t nitpick, but in their Five Star hotel room bathroom, on their Five Star toilet did they really have to hang a two star plastic toilet seat? It works fine, but it isn’t Five Star. And neither is The Breakers. The carpet in the front of the south corridor has become so badly stained that we had difficulty telling the carpet from the stain. You expect some help, too. During our stay I had two evening multi-hour Zoom meetings. When I made the reservation I asked for a quiet space to conduct the meetings, during one of which I had to do a lot of speaking. I was told that, although the Business Center is closed due to COVID safety rules, I could use part of it. That part was four bar stool height chairs pulled up to a, say, fifteen each deep desk against a wall. First, I couldn’t sit for four hours on a chair that high, and, second, that if any others had come to sit there, I would have been breathing those people’s air before they said hello. A Concierge Desk person found me a second area, a table in a lounge that she said was pretty much out of the way, and shouldn’t get much traffic at night. With both spaces inadequate, I again asked management to help, only to learn that the formerly “closed” Business Center had been declared “open”, with no other changes. That’s not two-star help for a longtime client, that’s zero-star help. The COVID safety protocols generally were pretty good, with one exception. The Fitness Center COVID safety is a *joke*. There’s a sign posted that requires a mask between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM. I don’t know, I guess the COVID air that guests have been heavily exhaling all agrees to leave the Fitness Center at 11:00 AM every day, so that the place is clean for us Cautious People. At 12:45 PM on our first day, all eight people in the Fitness Center were maskless. I hope none was a hotel employee, but I couldn’t tell. Then, after a while, a hotel employee showed up to clean the equipment. Counting me, that made two out of ten people wearing a mask during the “mask required” hours. When I complained, Guest Services told me that they take their COVID safety rules very seriously. Seriously! Averaging everything, here’s the score: 4.4 stars. For twelve years we’ve been coming to The Breakers both because it’s the best, and out of fear any other nice place around here wouldn’t be as good. But now, we can try out a few of the other nice hotels. Sorry, The Breakers, you’re not broken, but you are showing cracks.

Beautiful property woefully understaffed. Visited in March and April 2021. They have not been able to staff the property since Covid. Service in restaurants is deplorable. $1,600. p/night for average room with no view. Staff will apologise for bad service, sometimes literally, no service, but does not compensate for not delivering close to promised experience. While security, waitstaff and house keeping are very nice people, management is borderline abusive. While we are patient with businesses getting back on their feet after Covid, the Breakers delivers a less than mediocre experience while charging 7 Star Hotel prices. Will not stay at this property again.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Breakers for our 25th anniversary. We stayed in The Flagler Club and the service we received was amazing from start to finish. Chad and Lindsey stood among the Flagler concierges. The food they provided Flagler guests for happy hour and breakfast were great. We also had a great day in a Bungalow on Saturday. The weather was as perfect throughout our stay with only one short rain shower. We went to HMF after dinner each night and Candace and the bartending crew were awesome! We ended each night on the club level terrace and had it to ourselves every time but the last. Having access to the Flagler club specific Tesla was also a great convenience for us as we traveled around the Palm Beach area. All in all, it was an amazing stay and we are already plotting our return!

With prices exceeding $1500 for an ocean front room with no breakfast or amenities you would believe their motto would be thank you for staying with us? Instead it screamed u r privileged for us to allow u to stay here! Having traveled the world and have stayed at true 5 star hotels, The Breakers is old, dark and lacks vitality and energy. Overpriced and simply trying to get your last buck, starting with overpriced and bland coffee to room decor from grandma’s day. Save your money and stay elsewhere!
