Address: 320 Belvedere Rd.
Neighborhood: West Palm Beach
City: Palm Beach
Off the beaten path, but still within a few miles of the major sights, cool-mint-colored Hotel Biba is a groovy surprise. Although the structure was once a motor lodge, there's nothing Motel 6 about it. Behind the picket fence and ficus hedges are 41 colorful rooms with tile-trimmed mirrors and beads for closet doors that buck the fussy Palm Beach trend; a sizable pool and a wine bar attract hip locals on weekends. Continental breakfast and WiFi are both included. To the west isn't the greatest neighborhood, but Biba is on the right side of the tracks, literally (at S. Dixie Highway), near Antique Row.
