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).

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 always immaculate and the toiletries provided top shelf. We lived in Germany for several years and the Colony reminds us of several small European hotels we enjoyed so much.

Highlights of staying here include dining outside at poolside, a warm welcome every time you came to the front door after a day of site seeing, bar tenders who know their trade and are the perfect combination of friendly and professional. And if you like traditional cabaret entertainment, this is the place for you.

The Colony probably isn't the place for hipsters, but it certainly isn't stuffy. Just a very, very comfortable small hotel.

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 also hear favorable comments from other staff members who referred us to someone else if we needed further assistance. The food was excellent and also the surprise iced tea sent to us out by the pool. The Polo Lounge was rocking on Friday night for the Motown night. I cannot remember when I had such a great time rocking and dancing to the band. Other guests for this Friday night event were so much fun. Do not let the "Palm Beach" appearance fool you in terms of their kindness. The hotel was built in 1947 and has personality in its display of its heritage. The bedding was absolutely so comfortable. If you want a taste of the past in a small boutique type experience, I recommend this excellent hotel in an excellent location. My trip in the off season was a blessing to experience such service that I might not have been able to achieve when this hotel is completely booked during the winter season.

Room Tip: This hotel is somewhat hidden one block from the ocean and one block from Worth Avenue. Do not let an obscured view hinder your experience. Palm Beach is a very private type setting with lots of greenery and hedges.

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 "go cup" on the way to airport on early Sunday.

Rooms were what was expected of an older building. The bath was small. However, the furnishing were adequate.

The barman was friendly and will to make a custom drink. The event planning was superb. Rain obviated the outside Bat Mitzvah service, so it was moved inside. Not a problem.

Beware! The humidity in June is oppressive.

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 120-person post-wedding brunch in the Pavilion, as well as having 45 guest rooms at the hotel. We could not be happier with our stay, and are grateful to the whole team at the Colony for making it an amazing wedding weekend!
