After 46 years of happy marriage, the thing we value most is just being together and appreciating the world around us and the good people that we encounter. We chose to do a simple overnight at a hotel not far from home and a chance to spend time without crowds or amusements or traffic or all kinds of other distractions. The Chesterfield Palm Beach was the perfect place. It's a large hotel, but we were still treated like we were the only ones there. The staff arranged for roses in our room, an anniversary plate with chocolate covered strawberries and champagne delivered to our room and an anniversary dessert after dinner at their magnificent restaurant. We arrived at just the perfect time before it got crowded and again it seemed intimate and welcoming. Our room was beautiful and comfortable. The Red Carnation hotels seem to take pride in attention to details in creating a room environment, not just decor. We had a beautiful evening stroll along Worth Avenue after the shops were closed and we could just enjoy the artistry of the area and the creative window displays and just talk. We enjoyed breakfast al fresco at the hotel (it was delicious) and the Chesterfield Palm Beach even seemed to arrange for perfect weather for a December day. The room was fairly expensive for us, but this is what you pay for a beautiful place where you feel safe and can walk about anywhere or walk to the beach or shops and great restaurants. We will look forward another visit.
I had read quite a number of negative reviews and was somewhat worried that my choice was wrong after all. I was in for a surprise! Yes, the hotel is not updated, yes, there is no flashy entrance, but then there is also no $$$ for valet parking etc. We had a beautiful corner room that was large and bright with a view of the beautiful ocean and public park with palm trees. We also saw the community center with parking lot but this was the reason for the trip: a wedding in exactly this community center. Hanging out at the pool-side bar in the evening got me to chat with some locals.... it couldn't have been better, and the price was right. Would book again if I ever will come back to West Palm Beach.
