Nestled along a quiet, tree-lined stretch of road and gloriously free from floral garishness or tropical kitsch, The Brazilian Court is an elegantly hidden and understatedly glamorous old-world vision of 1920s Palm Beach. With its yellow stucco façade, mahogany detailing, and cypress ceilings, the hotel incorporates Mediterranean touches, Provençal colorings, and upscale colonial stylings that recall West Coast bungalows. Along with its 80 newly renovated studios and suites (which wrap around private central courtyards and manicured gardens), The Brazilian features an onsite art gallery with rotating exhibits, renowned haute cuisine by Daniel Boulud, and a celebrity stylist spa. And–as if that’s not enough–it’s also within walking distance from fashionable Worth Avenue.

WHY WE LIKE IT
The Brazilian favors quiet elegance over sprawling resort-style action. Set away from the busy beachfronts (though, only two blocks away, it is not too far from them), this property offers serene seclusion for those of us who crave relaxation and calm over vacation craziness. This is also an especially good choice for those looking to indulge in the best shopping on Palm Beach, since Worth Avenue is accessible by foot.
AMENITY WE LOVE
Restaurant and room service by Café Boulud. Prix fixe brunch on the terrace is a weekend must.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
While guests have access to the hotel's beach club, the hotel itself is not located on the beach. Another issue is that some rooms tend to be a bit on the small side.
GOOD TO KNOW
This hotel caters to animal-loving guests with luxury pet amenities such as personal pet room service. The beach club offers complimentary chauffeured car service to the beach as well as beach club amenities. Bike rentals are available starting at USD 15 per half day. In addition to twice daily maid service, the hotel offers complimentary pressing and shoe shines for all guests. Concierge service available.
