On the first day, I explored the resort a little bit, taking some video of the ocean spilling over the breakers (how appropriate, huh?).
At check-in, I was told that my room had been upgraded, but that it had two double beds. Since I was traveling alone, that didn't matter to me. I am not quite sure what "upgraded" means. The room was beautiful, but it overlooked the front entrance to the hotel.
I always love when there's a TV in the mirror in the bathroom. It adds a little something to the primping process. This one was interesting though. It was not HD (maybe they don't make in-mirror screens in HD?) and it didn't have all the same channel line-up as the one in the main room. The room, like the rest of the hotel, felt very "Old Florida". I liked it.
Because I had files to review, I spent much time in my room. One day I ordered a shrimp Caesar salad from room service. It did not disappoint.
When they said "colossal shrimp", they meant it! Isn't that starfish glass pretty? I kept it to drink water for the rest of my stay. And the napkin was wrapped with a little shell chain. And by the way - this was the best.bread.ever.
My cousin Kellye happens to live in West Palm Beach, so we were able to spend some time together while I was in town.
One evening after dinner, we came back to the hotel bar, HMF. I enjoyed having a nightcap glass of wine here. Our server, Giana, was adorable.
The Breakers is most definitely a 5-Star hotel, and I was spoiled in my two nights there. The service was impeccable in all areas. The lobby area was just beautiful. The rooms were safe; location wonderful, and ambiance was amazing.
I would love to return to this resort someday with my husband and/or daughter and spend a little more time enjoying the resort and less time working.
