The Business Journal’s annual list of the South Florida area’s hotels has a newcomer.
The Hilton West Palm Beach, which the Related Cos. completed in late 2015 and opened in January 2016, ranked 20th. The 400-room Hilton is adjacent to the Palm Beach County Convention Center, which regularly hosts some of the county’s largest events.
After nearly a decade of planning, and two years of construction, the Hilton features 24,000 square feet of meeting space, a pool deck with cabanas, a fitness center, and a full-service restaurant with a lounge and poolside bar. At the Business Journal’s inaugural Structures Awards, held Nov. 17 in Miami, Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates (NBWW) was honored as a finalist in the Best Architecture & Design category for its work on the hotel.
The hotel’s opening also brought jobs to the community. In August 2016, a recruiting event sought to fill about 30 jobs. Positions included cooks, bakers, restaurant servers, bartenders and cocktail servers. The property currently employs 300 and has 20 job openings – 15 of which are management or leadership positions.
Once again, the Fontainebleau Miami Beach topped The List. Recent renovations added a two-story, all-glass rooftop with nine luxury suites, private gardens and outdoor spa pools. Also updated was the North Tower, which cost about $22 million.
NBWW is also credited with the design of the Fontainebleau’s additions and renovations.
