WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – November 6, 2023 – Today, Hilton West Palm Beach announces the completion of a $25 million property-wide renovation. Led by owner Related Companies, South Florida’s visionary development company, the newly transformed hotel is conveniently connected to the Palm Beach County Convention Center and situated steps away from the burgeoning city center, a must-visit destination with a treasure trove of retail, art installations and local community activations.

“Hilton West Palm Beach has been a beacon of hospitality in Downton West Palm Beach since opening in 2016,” said Chris Inman, general manager, Hilton West Palm Beach. “As we envision the next decade and beyond, we are proud to continue evolving with the introduction of new experiences such as Palma, our signature lobby bar, and improvements across the hotel to exceed today’s traveler’s needs.”

“With an expanding array of world-class dining and shopping establishments and an ever-growing arts and culture scene, there’s never been a better time to visit West Palm Beach,” said Gopal Rajegowda, partner, Related Southeast. “With the transformative renovation of Hilton West Palm Beach, Related gives tourists another reason to visit the area and continues our investment in the City’s growing economy.”

Led by the globally recognized New York City-based design boutique, Meyer Davis Studio, Hilton West Palm Beach’s all-new look and feel begins in the lobby with the introduction of the new bar and encompasses all accommodations and al fresco spaces, including its palm-tree-adorned pool deck, and revitalized food and beverage destinations.

Lush Lobby Escape and Bar

Travelers and locals alike can bask in a tropical haven at the hotel’s lobby, adorned with lush native plants, Florida-inspired motifs and intimate seating vignettes. The allure of Palm Beach is found in every detail of Palma, the new signature lobby bar, from gold accents and neutral-toned furniture. With mesmerizing pool views, Palma is the heart of the hotel, where handcrafted cocktails and signature spirits are among the creative specialties and weekend live music transports guests to a social scene reminiscent of the city, all within the hotel walls.

Distinctive Guestrooms and Suites

The 400 refreshed rooms, including 43 fully renovated suites, feature a refined aesthetic that exudes charm and character with modern touches, artful design, expansive sun-filled views and new deluxe amenities including Byredo bath products. Guests can plunge into a rejuvenating escape with a newly appointed collection of executive rooms, boasting sweeping skyline views. The 81 rooms on floors 10-12 include elevated offerings, dedicated business concierge services, priority poolside loungers, a Nespresso machine, upgraded linens, as well as specialty perks at The Square, West Palm Beach’s experiential neighborhood featuring local shopping, restaurants and community-driven events.

Outdoor Oasis 

Palm trees and botanical landscapes line the reimagined pool deck, creating a secluded escape in the heart of the bustling city. Six newly constructed private cabanas, designed with reclaimed wood and natural fabrics feature personal televisions, a stocked mini refrigerator, private lounge chairs and a dedicated server. This outdoor oasis transforms into a wellness haven, with new fitness experiences on its expansive lawn, featuring yoga, HIIT and sound bowl healing classes. Additionally fun, energy-boosting opportunity awaits, as the lawn comes to life with entertainment including vinyl nights, live music, weekend DJ series curated by Giant Step and more.

Gastronomic Delights 

At the helm of Hilton West Palm Beach’s four dining concepts is Executive Chef Rodrigo Mezadri, whose culinary prowess has been refined over the past 20 years, traveling the world gaining a repertoire of international cuisine.

  • From the exuberant outdoor patio and expansive fire pit to the artful dining room and wood-burning grill flavors, this dynamic collection includes its signature restaurant, Galley. The award-winning indoor and outdoor restaurant has debuted a new look and bold menu featuring an array of internationally influenced dishes, handcrafted cocktails and monthly five-course wine dinners.

Culturally Enriched 

Hilton West Palm Beach presents a new collection of modern art curated by Eaton Fine Art, an award-winning, full-service art consultancy firm based in Austin, Texas.
