I'm from west palm and had always been curious about staying at Biba, so after moving up north and needing to stay somewhere for a visit, I got my chance. The area of west palm itself is VERY patchy when it comes to good and bad areas, but I love the historic district so I would certainly recommend it for the location.
I got the room for an average of $65/night and would hope that no one would ever pay more for that place in their life. The only thing that sets it apart from your average not so great hotel is a cute paint job and a more comfortable than your average motel bed. There's no fridge, no microwave, no room service, no hot tub, I never once saw the bar actually open except to give out the bagels and coffee for breakfast. All 3 staff members that I had an interaction with, were all the rudest of rude to me. It was a clean room and they gave me the room with a bathtub that I requested but after all of the billing errors, rudeness, and lack of amenities, I would never stay there again.
