I was in Atlantic Beach over the weekend to visit some friends. At the last minute I booked a room here and it was nice. The hotel was friendly and accommodating as I was arriving after hours. There are a number of good restaurants in the area for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Located within walking distance of restaurants, bars, and the beach (without the beachfront price), the Hotel Palms is perfect for both staycations and out-of-towners. It is renovated in a modern and hip style without compromising comfort. The owners are attentive and truly care about your experience. I have already booked a return trip!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Palms–the stylish attention to detail compliments the warm, local feel. We spent as much time outside (charming courtyard; fire pit; good tunes; nice breeze), as we did inside. The boutique space consists of (roughly) 10 rooms–all unique, and modernly designed; and the service/staff consists of smiling faces. Not to mention: LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!...

We had a great stay at Hotel Palms. We actually rented all 11 rooms for New Year's Eve so our friends and their children could all celebrate together.

If you enjoy sleeping until noon or waking up to the sunrise on your vacation, this is the place for you. The Hotel Palms has a history in Atlantic Beach, and it's new owners completely renovated it; it's absolutely stunning! Immaculate rooms, and super friendly service.

Just 10 of the sweetest rooms! Just walking into the courtyard makes you feel like you just finished yoga class! Done to minimalistic perfection. Couldn't have better hosts. Blocks from everything the great Atlantic Beach has to offer. It's not glitzy. And that's what makes it perfect.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Palms, formerly the Palms Retro, is a boutique hotel located in Atlantic Beach, Florida, The property recently underwent an eight month renovation to include 11 new guest rooms, beer and wine lounge, and private courtyard. A combination of single queens, double queens, and kings, the guest accommodations at Hotel Palms also include a 450 sf., one-bedroom king suite with a queen sleeper sofa as well as a Bunk Room. The Bunk Room is approximately 200 square feet and has a twin over full bunk bed. Located three blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and in walking distance to the shops and restaurants of Beaches Town Center, the Hotel Palms is the ideal getaway for travelers who desire the boutique hotel experience. Because the Hotel Palms is locally owned and operated, guests are encouraged to participate in activities that locals enjoy throughout their stay. From bike riding through the neighboring residential areas and eating at locally owned restaurants to day tripping to the nearby towns of historic St. Augustine and Fernandina Beach, the Hotel Palms staff is always available to provide recommendations and even create customizable itineraries, which will set guests up with activities based on their interests. Situated on a corner lot, the Hotel Palms consists of a single building of connected rooms whose doors face a private courtyard. Each room was designed with a nod to vernacular architecture, which is highlighted through the use of reclaimed wood headboards and custom art pieces, made from palm tree bootjacks. Hotel Palms features 11 airy rooms, many of which have workspaces and sitting areas that look out to the courtyard. Unique light fixtures, large area rugs, bright and beachy throw pillows, and original concrete flooring dotted with coquina shell are just a few of the elements that make each Hotel Palms guest feel as if they've escaped to a private beach bungalow for the weekend. In addition to newly renovated guest rooms and customized itineraries, Hotel Palms guests can also enjoy a private beer and wine lounge, outdoor seating and lounge areas, and an outside fireplace. Regional craft beers from local breweries are served in The Lounge, as well as wines by the glass and/or bottle. Guests can enjoy free bike and foam board rentals, as well as complimentary Wifi throughout the property. Last, but certainly not least, Hotel Palms offers in-room breakfast delivery service as part of an exclusive partnership with local restaurant, Happy Cup. ... more   less
