Its signature restaurant, Proper Grit, offers a Florida Chophouse dining experience, and rooftop lounge, Spruzzo, which sits beside the pool deck and overlooks the intracoastal waterway.

Equipped with more than 8,000 total square feet of function space, The Ben is the perfect venue for unconventional, striking events.

Debuting March 2020, The Canopy’s 7,000 square feet of flexible meeting space and 150 modern guest rooms are right in the heart of downtown West Palm Beach—within walking distance to the Palm Beach County Convention Center and the Downtown Arts & Entertainment District. Designed to be an immersive experience within this culture-rich neighborhood, The Canopy boasts a glass façade throughout the lobby and pre-function areas, allowing for natural light and bright spaces, perfect for networking and fostering connections. Featuring a rooftop bar and pool, the hotel is a perfect space for meetings and more.

Perched on a pristine, seven-acre stretch of sand in Singer Island, the ultra-luxurious Amrit is sure to stun any traveler.
