Plunk down in posh Palm Beach for the winter and it’s going to cost you -- especially at The Brazilian Court Hotel, where rates are $659 a night for the second weekend in January. But if you can break away this summer, you can pay just a third of that price.Now through the end of this September, you can nab studio accommodations here from just $219. The 400-square-foot rooms are perfect for both girlfriends' and couple's getaways, featuring luxe-feeling wood shutters, mahogany crown molding, and king or queen beds draped with imported linens. And the fact that there are only 80 rooms practically guarantees a quiet, relaxing stay.
So what prices, exactly, can you expect throughout the summer? We found the lowest $219 nightly rates on weekdays in June, while weekdays in July and August are just $239. Father's Day weekend, if you're still looking, starts from $249 per night (as does Labor Day weekend). Otherwise, expect to pay $259 throughout July and August, with the exception of Fourth of July weekend -- and even then, the mark-up isn't big at all at $289. Labor Day weekend rates are even lower, at $249.
Even more to love: All above rates drop even lower if you pay in advance, which gets you a 15 percent discount.
If the prices haven't convinced you yet, consider that you'll be treated like royalty. After all, that's essentially what storied families like the Kennedys, Trumps, Pulitzers, and Hearsts are to American society. The hotel, dating back to the 1920s, has once -- and continues to be -- a popular beach destination for this crowd. As a luxury hotel, you'll find plenty of other amenities with high standards, from cuisine by Michelin-holding Chef Daniel Boulud and salon services by Frederic Fekkai.
