The Ben West Palm Beach is the newest hotel in the city and only hotel in the downtown waterfront. Inspired by one of South Florida’s original estates, best-selling author Byrd Dewey’s Ben Trovato, the 208-room property features carefully curated design and details that will go hand in hand with an authentic local experience.
The hotel made its grand debut in February and has been named the headquarters for the 35th annual Palm Beach International Boat Show when it cruises into town May 14 – 17, 2020.
The Ben will serve as a sentinel point for socializing and gathering for both locals and modern travelers and will host the official check-in at its ground floor flex event space, The Studio, located directly across from the harbor.
Travelers to West Palm Beach for the show will be among the first to experience The Ben’s edgy design, modern accommodations, and inspired food and beverage concepts. These include a full-service restaurant, Proper Grit, and Spruzzo lounge, the area’s only rooftop swimming pool and bar where patrons can pair creative cocktails with a bird’s eye view of the glitz, glam and superyachts for which the boat show is known. Rates start at $399.
The hotel offers prime views of the Palm Harbor Marina and Intracoastal Waterway and amenities include a stunning rooftop lounge with an expansive swimming pool and bar.
The Ben is in the heart of all the vibrant entertainment West Palm Beach offers; just one block from famous Clematis Street, minutes to West Palm’s lifestyle hub Rosemary Square. Guest rooms and suites offer thoughtful amenities for a relaxing stay like mini-bar, 55″ Smart HDTV and complimentary WiFi.
The Palm Beach International Boat Show is one of the top five boat shows in the country. This year’s show will feature more than $1.2 billion worth of yachts and accessories, including hundreds of boats ranging from 8-foot inflatables to superyachts nearly 300 feet in length.
