The 12-story Hilton West Palm Beach, a long anticipated convention center hotel, opened Saturday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony as the first guests arrived.

The hotel is connected to the Palm Beach County Convention Center through an enclosed walkway, making it the only hotel in South Florida directly connected to a convention center.

New York-based Related Companies and Hilton Worldwide
developed the hotel. Miami-based architectural firm Nicholas Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates and Dallas-based interiors firm Looney and Associates designed the hotel, which has 400 guest rooms and 43 suites.

Related Companies also developed CityPlace, the 72-acre mixed-use development directly across the street from the Hilton West Palm Beach, which is located at 600 Okeechobee Boulevard.

“With Related Companies’ vision, we have programmed a world-class hotel,” John L. Parkinson, general manager, Hilton West Palm Beach, said in a press release.

The Hilton Palm Beach has more than 24,000 square feet of meeting space, including its 13,350-square-foot Oceana Ballroom and its 5,800-square-foot Coral Ballroom as well as two 2,400-square-foot lawn spaces for weddings, fitness programs and special events.

Guest amenities include a fitness center, a poolside bar, a “floatation menu” featuring inflatable toys and rafts for relaxing in the swimming pool, an oversized chessboard and an outdoor fire pit.

The Hilton West Palm Beach also has curated art displays that aim to convey the artistic energy of South Florida, including a Zammy Migdal wall sculpture with more than 140 hand-forged iron sculptural elements and life-sized photography by Chris Leidy, grandson of Lilly Pulitzer.

Food is a focal point of the West Palm Beach hotel, which will house Manor, the hotel’s signature restaurant serving contemporary American cuisine; Galley, a  lobby bar with a nautical design theme; and Provisions, a store with such a mix of freshly prepared snacks and cold-pressed juices as well as artwork and gifts.

Nightly room rates start at $199 during the hotel’s opening week through Friday, February 5, then increase to $259.
