New hotel in West Palm Beach
The Ben West Palm is being hailed as the only hotel on the West Palm Beach waterfront and is set to open in February. The 208-room property at 251 N. Narcissus Ave. takes inspiration from the Ben Trovato Estate. It once belonged to the Deweys, who were one of the first couples to settle in South Florida. Eclectic design elements include sliding bookcases that reveal a peek into the shower, copper wall hooks and whimsical portraits. The Proper Grit restaurant will be open from breakfast to dinner and emphasize locally sourced fare. The rooftop will include a pool with private cabanas and a view of the waterfront.
