Hilton: West Palm Beach
The lovely team at Hilton invited me to stay at their West Palm Beach location, and I couldn’t be more excited to share the details with you! This AAA Four Diamond hotel was the most beautiful Hilton I have ever stayed at.
WHERE TO DINE: There’s no need to leave the property to find great food, because Galley Restaurant serves delicious dishes in a gorgeous setting. The restaurant’s outdoor seating area gives off the vibes of a tropical oasis, complete with flowering plants, twinkling string lights and hanging moss.
Notable menu items include: Ahi Tuna Poke (the chef added in cucumber, which makes it better than any poke I’ve ever tasted. So fresh and light!) Order the Tiger Shrimp for an “interactive dining experience" -- they are serviced on piping hot red river rocks at 500 degrees with plus sauvignon blanc, and they steam and sizzle in front of your eyes for 2 minutes! While you wait, sip on a "Speakeasy" drink. Trust me. PS: the restaurant manager is the nicest guy in town--my cousin spilt some red wine on her dress and he immediately pulled out a Tide pen to remove the stain!
WHERE TO RELAX: As the sun sets, grab a cocktail and spend the evening enjoying the outdoor fire pit that overlooks the massive pool.
POOL PERKS: You can’t leave this hotel without ordering a poolside drink! At La Playa, Hilton West Palm’s outdoor bar, enjoy a freshly cracked coconut filled with ZICO coconut water and Malibu rum! I absolutely LOVE this combo because it leaves you feeling ultra-hydrated.
CHILL OUT: Looking to leave the hotel? Head to Grandview Public Market (it's only a two-minute Uber ride away) to visit Rabbit Roasting Coffee Co. for delicious locally-sourced coffee or matcha, followed by a yoga or spin class within the market!
MORE THINGS TO LOVE: Weirdly the rooms smell REALLY good. They must use something very fresh in their linens. Lastly, they won the AWARD FOR BEST BATHROOM SELFIE LIGHTING! Hands down.
