The Breakers Palm Beach Review

April/May 2021

ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: We arrived at 1 p.m. and were greeted by the valet team, who introduced themselves and took our bags. The front desk team were enthusiastic, and in a short time we were in our beautiful room, where a cold bottle of Champagne and some delicious chocolates greeted us. The bellman supplied some information, and we were ready to sit on the deck and look out at the beach and ocean. The view was expansive and soothing.

GUEST QUARTERS: The room could not have been cleaner and more comfortable. It was equipped with a large TV, free WiFi and plenty of outlets for our electronics. The room also had a gorgeous bathroom that included a shower and a tub. As an added bonus there was a television in the bathroom mirror. The bedding was comfortable, as was the other furniture in the room.

SERVICES/AMENITIES: The property is breathtaking and has multiple restaurants on the premises and a few that are a short distance away. A complimentary shuttle drives to and picks up from the restaurants every 10 minutes. Not only are there great choices of restaurants, they are serviced by knowledgeable and caring staff and feature fantastic food and ambience. Our favorite was the seafood restaurant with the ocean as a backdrop and the bar itself a fish tank. It is a little disconcerting at times when you put your drink down and see fish swim under your glass!

TOP TAKEAWAYS:

One of the top hotels in the country, it always delivers. We never leave dissatisfied. Even during the pandemic

it was an enjoyable trip. The hotel was cautious, and everyone felt comfortable and socially distanced.

The property is so colorful and well-landscaped, it is pure joy to walk around the grounds and take in the scenery.

The property seems to lift everyone’s spirits, as guests are relaxed and enjoying life while at The Breakers.

Even though you don’t need to leave the grounds, many great cities and restaurants lie within a short driving distance. There are some great stores on premises, and shopping abounds in the area.

Heart of the South

Birmingham, Alabama, was named for the city in the English Midlands that kept the fires burning, warmed the homes and made much of the steel for the United Kingdom’s industrial revolution. Decades later, the American city also made steel, so much of it, in fact, it became known as the “Magic City” for steel production, and the moniker stuck. But today’s Magic City makes more than steel, taking the raw product a few more steps to become a major center for automobile parts manufacturing and more, including Honda, Mercedes-Benz and U.S. Steel. Thanks to local leadership and long-term planning, the magic still works for Birmingham, as evidenced by its role hosting The World Games 2022 last summer.

Rich in History: Explore Gilded Age Mansions and More in Newport, Rhode Island

Originally a thriving Colonial seaport, Newport became the summer playground for the Gilded Age’s elite in the late 1880s. Today their mansions dot the coast of Aquidneck Island, and their favorite pastimes — sailing and tennis — still dominate the city’s recreational offerings. In fact, Newport hosted the first U.S. Open tennis championship in 1881 and golf tourna- ment in 1895 and hosted the America’s Cup from 1930 to 1983. You can experience most of Newport on your own, including the mansions, but don’t rule out a guided tour or two when you visit.
