Sure, it’s a convention hotel. But the new Hilton West Palm Beach secretly longs to be a hub for community gatherings—and is doing a great job of it. Side by side with business-attired professionals, you’re likely to see yogis practicing on the lawn, a local band belting out tunes, and hipsters sipping craft cocktails by the pool.

The “urban oasis” vibe begins with chic modern decor (think chrome, glass, and tactile textures) that incorporates work by local artists, including the underwater photography of Chris Leidy. If you haven’t had the pleasure, try yoga and brunch, offered every Saturday through September, or Summer Fridays with a poolside cookout, speakeasy-style cocktails, and live entertainment.
