Marriott International’s Autograph Collection Hotels has a new address in West Palm Beach, Florida. The Ben joins a diverse portfolio of more than 180 independent hotels carefully crafted with vision and passion.
The Ben joins Autograph Collection’s robust portfolio of 18 hotels in Florida including the newly opened Cadillac Hotel & Beach Club in Miami Beach, The Daytona in Daytona Beach and Fenway Hotel in Dunedin.
The 208-room new-build hotel features a modern design aesthetic reflecting the spirit of the Ben Trovato Estate, one of West Palm Beach’s original homes.
The Ben’s design combines vintage Florida with modern elements. Guestrooms feature eclectic elements including sliding bookcases that, when discovered, reveal a window into the shower and whimsical collage portraiture. In the lobby, a book display wall is arranged to manifest the silhouette of hotel muse Dewey’s face.
Proper Grit debuts as the hotel’s signature restaurant, with Executive Chef Andre Sattler at the helm. The contemporary South Florida chophouse is open daily and offers indoor and outdoor seating in a comfortable, yet upscale setting.
The Ben also features Spruzzo, a stunning rooftop lounge and bar that is accessible via an express elevator directly from the ground floor. This new West Palm hotspot boasts sweeping views of the Palm Harbor Marina and beyond, and offers a setting for guests to enjoy poolside cocktails and Mediterranean bites al fresco.
Regular programming will make use of the varied spaces throughout the hotel with offerings including Sunset/Sunrise Yoga on the Rooftop, a Proper Grit Pup Brunch, Gin & Jam Tea Time and more.
Owned and operated by Concord Hospitality, The Ben is located at 251 N. Narcissus Avenue, one block from vibrant Clematis Street, minutes away from the newly reimagined Rosemary Square and a short drive from Palm Beach International Airport (PBI).
