“Like Staying with Family, Only Less Annoying”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Great, small B&B. We stayed in the Gardenia Suite. It was charming and had an island type feel. Comfortable beds and pillows, ample closet space for even the heaviest of packers, large bathroom, ceiling fans with remotes, and a small tv. Road noise might be a complaint for only the pickiest of travelers. On the weekends the place buzzes with what seemed to be tourist and locals alike enjoying food and drink. Received an overwhelming friendly welcome upon arrival, along with complimentary drink tickets for the outside(under the wrap around porch) bar. Prime location, within walking distance to dining, shopping, and nightlife. I-95 and the beach are only short drive away. Publix(grocery store) located next door.

I could not imagine a nicer, charming and more inviting retreat than the Palm Beach Hibiscus for a stay in the West Palm Beach area. It is truly an oasis in the PBI/CityPlace locale. I have stayed in several of the rooms over the years and each one is magical in its own way, tastefully appointed and exceptionally comfortable. It is like being in Key West, yet literally steps away from business and leisure activities. As a business traveler who is on the road 2-3 days weekly, I am keen on certain amenities and standards. For sure, the Palm Beach Hibiscus meets them all. The added bonus is the wonderful and bountiful breakfasts and the evening drinks, food and vintage wines at the outdoor bar. I highly recommend the Palm Beach Hibiscus for leisure or business.... if you are fortunate you will stay when the Backyard Bar is having a wine pairing event.... if not, you will want to come back just for that!

This is an old Victorian style house on the edge of the main street in West Palm Beach. It's a great location from which you can walk to City Place to visit restaurants and shops in a great small city atmosphere. Palm Beach is just across the bridge, with nice ocean beaches, a great bike trail. The room we stayed in was the Rosemary, which had a small sitting area with a desk, small frig, and a wicker bench, as well as the larger room with a comfortable queen bed and a large bathroom with both a shower and a jaccuzzi tub. Breakfasts were omelets two days and blueberry pancakes the other. Coffee, fresh fruit and juice rounded out the complete breakfast. The manager Pat was very helpful, and the bar is a nice place for a drink on a warm evening.

I travel to Palm Beach several times a month. I always stay at Hibiscus House. Even if it weren't convenient, charming, comfy, and reasonable, I would stay just because of Pat, the Innkeeper Par Excellence. Pat's southern charm, warm welcome, and fine hospitality brand the Hibiscus House for all who know it and continue to return. The HH bar is a favorite of both guests and neighbors -- Palm Beachers and West Palm Beachers for whom this is their local version of Cheers -- and Pat and Randy can often be found there in the evenings greeting guests and tipping a glass with friends.

Pat couldn't be a better innkeeper and host. He always remembers my favorite breakfast. When my travel mirror broke in transit, he offered to drive across town and get me a new one. When I accidentally left a scarf in their closet, Pat tracked me down at the Norton Museum of Art to return it -- even though I was coming back again in just a few days!

When I have to be away from family this much, Pat and Randy and Kenny are a great extended family, and Hibiscus House is a great "home away from home."
If you visit, you'll probably see me there.

This was our second stay at the Hibiscus and loved it as much the second time as the first. Only thing I was sad to see is the tiki bar change, I liked the old feel better but will say Jimmy is a kick!

We found the Palm Beach Hibiscus in Frommer's Travel Guide, and we were happy with our choice. The location is excellent with only a short walk to CityPlace which we visited often.

Pat was extremely helpful, and his breakfasts were delicious. We loved his French Toast. Because the Fern Room was not available our first night, we stayed in the Evernia Room the first night. While we were touring the next day, Pat moved our luggage to the Fern Room for us.



Parking was no problem our entire stay.

Room Tip: Our favorite room was the Fern Room. It is located over the outside bar, but there was no noise fro...

I stayed her with a girlfriend for one night during her bachelorette party. While the b&b itself was very quiet and comfortable, the area surrounding the b&b was great. There are so many great shops and tasty restaurants.

The man who runs this hotel is an angel. My friend and I got caught in the rain and couldn't get out to the places we wanted to grab some mimosas. The hotel didn't serve alcohol unless the bar was open so we were kinda stuck. But the manager/owner was so nice and brought us out a whole bottle of champagne and oj on the house! He also let us stay past the check out time because we were waiting for our friends.

Great service ! The rooms were very clean and comfortable
