The Chesterfield Palm Beach
Palm Beach, Florida

If you don’t want to travel all the way to England, why not bring England to America? British tradition meets exotic beaches at this alternative Florida hotel, which was the second Red Carnation boutique to open its elegant doors. A registered historic landmark, the revered building is nestled at the heart of the Palm Beach region, surrounded by tree-lined boulevards and pastel-coloured villas. Close to the glamour of Worth Avenue, the treasures of the Norton Art Museum and the renowned Palm Beach Opera, it’s a great place from which to enjoy the various jewels set within the Palm Beach crown. With a thriving nightlife and thoroughly English traditions, it’s a sophisticated way to enjoy the culture of both great countries.


Where to smoke?
Named after one of the world’s most famous cigar lovers, Churchill’s Cigar Room is a leather-clad, cushion-filled sanctuary - the perfect space for smokers to unwind with a newspaper and a glass of cognac. With hundreds of cigars locked away in their large glass and maple wood walk-in humidor, there’s plenty of options when it comes to picking your holiday smoke. Scattered with unusual ash-trays, smoking books and cigar memorabilia, it’s a perfectly crafted haven for anyone who enjoys a good cigar and that exclusive club atmosphere.


Sherry, Live Music and Freshly Baked Cookies
There are millions more perks to this hotel besides their exclusive cigar lounge. Rather than a brew, you’ll be given a glass of sherry on arrival - which pretty much sums up the difference between the two hotels. While the Chesterfield is a relaxing retreat in the daytime, on an evening it’s one of the liveliest hotels on Palm Beach, and a regular spot for locals to drink, dance and dine. Their acclaimed jungle-themed Leopard Lounge and Restaurant pulls in lovers of gourmet cuisine and live music - as well as fans of the hotel’s home-made flavoured vodkas. You can recover from the night’s frivolities with an al fresco breakfast in the flower-filled courtyard, or a long soak in your private marble bathroom. There’s also freshly baked cookies on constant supply in the reception area, custom-made chocolates left in your room, and of course, a fluffy bathrobe for you to wrap up in on a morning. Kids and pets are welcome here too, and no matter how many you bring along your room will still be pristine, because the maid cleans it twice a day.


If you come over a little English during your stay, you can also request the hotel’s unique Victorian tea experience. A period-dressed Victorian lady will teach you all about the history of traditional English tea, tea-drinking etiquette, and Tasseography - the ancient art of tea leaf reading. But if you’d rather forego the lessons and just eat like the English, you can enjoy sweet scones, assorted pastries and cucumber sandwiches every day during afternoon tea. Plus, if you decide to visit the hotel on your birthday, everything you eat is free - so plan wisely!

If you do fancy a luxury, English-themed getaway in a hotel where you can smoke to your heart’s content, both of these boutiques are a fabulous option. With excellent service, top quality cuisine and plenty of culture, they’ll provide an elegant, sophisticated break for any cigar-smoking traveller.
