The Chesterfield: Palm Beach
I absolutely love palm beach! I decided to visit The Chesterfield Hotel, a luxury 4-star hotel that won the Condé Naste Traveler Reader's Choice Award and was voted #3 of "The Top 15 Hotels in Florida - 2017."
HIGHLIGHTS: The decor is lovely. Palm-print wallpaper adorns the hallways and hand-painted murals of monkeys dance around on the elevators. The hotel is so classic--instead of an electronic key, you receive two large brass room keys. It really felt like I was staying in someone's home. The rooms are beautiful, light, and airy with expertly-designed bedding and window treatments. This is the perfect hotel for an instagram photo op!
HIT THE POOL: I spent an entire afternoon at the Chesterfield's pool. It's completely private and very quiet. I didn't end up ordering any food because the breakfast eggs in the courtyard were more than filling!
POLO: Don't forget to attend a polo match at the International Polo Club in nearby Wellington. I was lucky enough to see the US OPEN match! Insider's tip: it's worth getting VIP tickets. The brunch is phenomenal and you are able to drink your bottle of Veuve Clicquot without anyone blocking your view.
WHERE TO DINE: Buccan! This is an obvious choice for seasoned Palm Beachers. Everything on the menu is great, but I really do recommend that you try the Hot Dog Panini. Trust me on this. As for cocktails, sip on a "Rabbit-tini" (made with organic nitro cold-brew from local coffee company, Rabbit Roasting Coffee Co.)
WHERE TO PARTY: Cucina livens up around 10PM! Usually there's a great DJ and a lot of dancing.
