The Ben West Palm

Whether you’re visiting, sipping, or dining…West Palm Beach’s newest waterfront experience is not to be missed! The Ben West Palm is a 208-room boutique hotel – part of the acclaimed Marriott Autograph Collection – on the West Palm Beach waterfront.

Offering prime views of the Palm Harbor Marina and scenic Intracoastal Waterway, the hotel’s amenities include a stunning rooftop lounge with an expansive swimming pool and bar. Situated at the northeast quadrant of Olive Avenue and Banyan Boulevard, the hotel is one block from Clematis Street, West Palm’s “Main Street,” and within walking distance of lifestyle hub Rosemary Square. Luxury has arrived in Downtown West Palm Beach.


The  Ben’s Story

The Ben West Palm, an Autograph Collection Hotel, channels the spirit of one of West Palm Beach’s original homes and interprets it for a modern traveler. Byrd Spilman Dewey gave her 1892 Victorian home the name Ben Trovato, literally meaning “well invented” or “well found”; the name is derived from Se non è vero, è ben trovato, an Italian phrase which, loosely translated, means “Even if it isn’t true, it’s a good story”. The Estate put West Palm Beach on the cultural map, entertaining luminaries like Henry Phipps Jr., Woodrow Wilson, and the Vanderbilts.


Dining at The Ben

Dining at The Ben is upscale and comfortably local, infused with inspiration, representing the social city center of West Palm and the time-honor spirit of sharing. For banquets or meeting breaks, work retreats or weddings, the options are endless.


Fun is at the heart of it – local leaders meet at our stylish signature restaurant Proper Grit for appetizers or entrees with a side of innovation; business travelers find comfortable corners to loosen up over crafted cocktails, and groups gather at the rooftop bar Spruzzo to plan the next day’s agenda over uniquely crafted cocktails, micro-brewed beers and a wide variety of award-winning wines and spirits.


Rooftop Experience

Whether you are hosting a corporate or social event, enjoying a well crafted cocktail or taking a dip in the pool, The Ben rooftop experience provides it all. Take the express elevator from the ground level to Spruzzo, the rooftop Italian-inspired lounge featuring dining options from entrees to light bites complimented by diverse cocktail and wine menu.
