Why Stay At The Chesterfield Palm Beach
Right in the heart of Palm Beach—just a few blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and legendary Worth Avenue—the Chesterfield delivers a bit of English charm mixed with sand and sea.
Registered with the Palm Beach Preservation Foundation as a historic landmark, the Chesterfield's iconic white building has been used as a hotel since 1926. After a series of name changes—it was originally called the Lido-Venice—the property was dubbed the Chesterfield in 1989 when it was purchased by the U.K.-based Red Carnation chain. The hotel certainly has a British feel—particularly in public spaces such as the Churchill Cigar Room, where you can enjoy a smoke straight from the well-stocked humidor—but it's truly pure Palm Beach, attracting Lilly Pulitzer-clad guests during both high and low season. Many of the 52 rooms are dressed in chintz and tartan and paired with modern streamlined furniture, and there's a lush outdoor courtyard that's a lovely place for a crisp Cobb salad with locally grown beefsteak tomatoes and a signature Courtyard pink martini. It feels more like a British estate than, say, an Art Deco hotel in South Beach—and that's just how travelers like it.
Spend cocktail hour in the bar area of Leopard's Lounge, where live musicians perform every night of the week.
Although it's not a resort, the Chesterfield's proximity to the town's always-quiet beach—just three blocks away—makes a sunset walk along the ocean hard to resist, and the hotel provides chairs and towels in case you want to take a break on the sand.

Why We Love Palm Beach
Lush and elegant, Palm Beach is not only the ultimate winter resort, but lives up to expectations year-round with its glamorous modern beach lifestyle.
Where to Shop: Worth Avenue offers all the glitzy, global brands you'd expect, but locals head to Antique Row in West Palm Beach for vintage finds. Elephant's Foot is a favorite for its selection of English designs, from small tortoiseshell boxes to large ornate armoires. 561/832-0170.
Where to Eat: For 30 years, Café L'Europe has earned a loyal local following for its French-inspired dishes such as Escargots Bourguignonne Napoleon. Dinner for two $180. 561/655-4020.
Local Scene: With its sleek design and inventive small plates, you might expect Buccan to be in Barcelona instead of Palm Beach. It's a unique spot for a glass of rosé and a plate of fried zucchini flowers after a day in the sun. Dinner for two $100. 561/833-3450.
