Since 1947 The Colony has been at the center of Palm Beach social life hosting U.S. Presidents, European Royalty and American “Snowbirds” down for the winter season and all manner of discriminating travelers from around the world. Its location is ideal; adjacent to world famous Worth Avenue in the center of the town and a football field length from Palm Beach’s best beach.

Blessed with classic British Colonial architecture, The Colony has just completed a $12 million renewal. All of the 90 guest rooms, suites, villas and penthouses are beautifully appointed having pillow top mattresses and 350 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets with European duvets. Three spectacular Penthouses top the main hotel and an adjacent mansion, Casa Manana, has been beautifully reconfigured into seven spacious villas.

A true “boutique” hotel, small in size with a distinct personality, The Colony exudes charm and a truly friendly feeling. Some guests stay for weeks, even months. Many life long friendships have begun at our pool and lively conversation is a constant during cocktail-hour at the famous Polo bar or the relaxed and airy Palm Court.

Although small, The Colony is a full-service hotel with Room Service, Concierge, Valet Parking, great food and top-notch music and entertainment. There are no conventions as such but many small, upscale corporate, political and university meetings. Dignitaries are a frequent occurrence and recently have included Presidents Bush and Clinton, Prince Edward and Princess Sofia and many others. The Colony has been discovered as a little gem for destination weddings which come to us from New York, Dallas, even London.

Around the corner, literally, is America’s most unique shopping street, Worth Avenue. Three blocks of famous upscale retailers with fascinating little “vias” having dozens of high-end boutiques and galleries surrounded by classic Mizner architecture. Cartier, Tiffany, Gucci, Ferragamo, Tourneau, Neiman-Marcus, Saks, to name only a few.

The Colony Hotel was the perfect location for our December wedding! The service, food and ambiance were a dream come true. Our guests were so impressed by the food and overall experience. Robyn made the process so easy and was wonderful to work with. She also provided a ton of support in selecting vendors which was really appreciated as an out of town bride! They really went above and beyond. Everyone staying at the hotel fell in love with the every aspect of this special location. We can't wait to go back to reminisce!

Just a phenomenal experience, from start to finish. We were the first event in the newly renovated Ballroom, and every single aspect of our wedding weekend was flawless. The new Ballroom is stunning. Most of our guests stayed at the Hotel for the entire weekend, and the entire Hotel Staff was so very gracious, and accommodating. The newly decorated rooms are fresh, bright, and plush. We used most of the vendors recommended by the Hotel, and they were all excellent. The food, the wait staff, and all of the services provided for the reception were incredible. Our guests were wowed by the entire weekend. A big thanks to Robin, for her expertise in planning, and flexibility in executing our vision. From our 1st meeting 8 months prior to the event, to our final goodbye, she was the best of the best. Great job, and kudos to everyone at The Colony.

We had a fabulous wedding at The Colony Hotel! We worked with the event coordinator, Tricia, who made sure that our wedding day was just as we envisioned. The food was fabulous. The hotel doesn't have organized "food tastings" prior to events, but we were able to dine at the hotel prior to the wedding and meet with the chef who helped us decide on our menu options. It was great having our wedding at a small boutique hotel, where our wedding was the only event going on that night. Our guests really enjoyed hanging out at the Polo Lounge Friday and Saturday night (great live music). We also had a wedding brunch at The Colony the day after the wedding, held on the Palm Terrace outside by the pool. Beautiful way to end the wedding weekend. Excellent food, Excellent setting, Excellent service, Excellent value!

Everything at The Colony was wonderful for our wedding. The set-up was perfect and all of our personal details were exactly how we asked them to be done. The food and service were excellent, and the only detail we worried about on our wedding day was the weather, which was perfect, too! We would definitely recommend The Colony to our friends.

My husband Brad and I were married at the Colony Hotel on May 18, 2013, and The Colony could not have been a more perfect location. Brad and I had considered many options for our wedding venue and once we visited the Colony, it just felt right. We loved the friendly atmosphere, how the staff always remembered us and the fact that we were the only wedding to happen that weekend was truly unique to any other hotel on the island. We had our rehearsal dinner in the Royal Room and it was beautiful, we were able to play a slideshow of baby pictures and enjoy great food and music. Our wedding was in the main ballroom the next day and was truly beautiful. I am a very detail-oriented person and had many small things I had asked the staff at the Colony to take care of and they did with complete perfection. No detail was overlooked. The room looked incredible! Our guests have told us time and time again how delicious the food was. The fish was perfect and the filet was done so nicely that they could cut it with their forks! We even extened our reception and of course the hotel was accomodating. Lastly, we had our Sunday brunch in the court beside the pool and that was absolutely perfect as well. Our guests were so impressed again with the food, the staff, service and overall experience at the hotel. I would not have chosen anywhere else in the world to have my reception and I am truly grateful to the Colony and all of the staff for making it a beautiful wedding! We will have to come back and stay at the hotel for our first anniversary!
