The Brazilian Court
The Brazilian Court (301 Australian Ave.; 561-655-7740) is a 1920s boutique hotel on the barrier island of Palm Beach that’s fully modernized for the 21st century, yet it retains its elegant sense of yesteryear, when Cary Grant, Clark Gable and Greta Garbo were regular visitors.

Boca Raton Resort & Club
A world of its own in Palm Beach County, the Boca Raton Resort & Club (501 E. Camino Real; 561-447-3000) is often dubbed the Pink Palace owing to its Spanish Revival cloister main building.
