Brazilian Court Hotel

Six years ago, Leslie Schlesinger, the high-energy perfectionist from Tiburon, California, embarked on a room-by-room renovation of Palm Beach's Brazilian Court Hotel, a 1920s-era property, after learning that the future of the hotel was in jeopardy because the owner had filed for bankruptcy. Schlesinger, her husband, Richard, and the couple’s three sons acquired the Brazilian Court. Although the family had developed real estate up and down the eastern seaboard, they had never owned or operated a hotel. The charming, intimate hotel with 80 renovated studios and one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites is conveniently located in Palm Beach central and its two blocks from the beach. It features discreet courtyards, a newly renovated pool and gardens and an expansive piazza. Chef Daniel Boulud’s Café Boulud features interiors and al fresco Dining options and Frédéric Fekkai's Salon & Spa is a destination for local residents and visitors. Rooms start at about $300 per night.
