363 Cocoanut Row
A landmark hotel built in 1926, The Chesterfield is more like an exclusive English club than a hotel. Its Colonial charm, unique furnishings and attention to detail make for the ultimate Palm Beach experience--just a stone's throw from Worth Avenue. One of seven prestigious Red Carnation Hotels that dot London, Geneva and Palm Beach, this boutique hotel has a Five Diamond rating from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences, Four Diamond Award from AAA and Mobil Four Star award. A complimentary glass of sherry greets each guest in the English country manor house-style lobby, which receives its guests at a reception desk, rather than a counter, for a most personal welcome.
A red carnation is worn by all staff--who serve traditional afternoon tea wherever you choose--be it lounging on the overstuffed leather sofa in the Fireside Library, or chatting with friends in one of the sitting room's floral-print wingback chairs. Across the corridor from the library, choose a fine cigar from the walk-in humidor and sip a full-bodied port in Churchill's Cigar Room, a room with the DNA of an English men's club.
Small details--books to read, potted plants, a desk stocked with stationery--in The Chesterfield's 43 deluxe guest rooms and 11 luxurious suites further its boutique hotel atmosphere. Each of the suites is uniquely themed in decor from the leopard jungle suite to one done completely in blues, and each is in high demand from repeat guests such as Tommy Hilfiger (who prefers the expansive penthouse), Margaret Thatcher and Bob Mackie.
For nightly entertainment and an eclectic mix of English and European cuisine, the Chesterfield is home to the Leopard Lounge and Restaurant--known for its black and red motif, accenting leopard-skin patterned carpet, menus and dishware. The ceiling, hand- painted by the late artist Lino Mario, is more than a little naughty--in decadent Palm Beach spirit--with saucy cherubs, pan pipe-toting satyrs, sexy women and leering goats floating overhead.
For Champagne receptions, engagement celebrations or professional conferences, the Leopard Room can accommodate groups of up to 100 guests. The full-service Business Center offers Internet access, as well as fax and phone use for business travelers. The Poolside Pavilion Room has room for a 60-guest banquet, theater or conference, and the Fireside Library is a popular spot for meetings and teas for up to 20 attendees.
