Palm Beach Hibiscus is comprised of two historic houses that were both built in 1917 and moved to their current location in 1996. The Main House, where breakfast is served, is comprised of four beautifully appointed rooms including an ADA accessible room. The Courtyard House is home to our four remaining rooms, which include our pet friendly rooms and our luxurious Hibiscus Suite. Nestled between the two houses is our lush tropical courtyard, the perfect place to host corporate gatherings, weddings, birthdays, or holiday parties. Relax, unwind and have fun at the backyard bar.

Both houses are registered in the National Register of Historic Places.
