Stay Comfortable and Incognito at a Hotel-Within-A-Hotel
While you check into your room at The Breakers resort in Palm Beach, Florida you overhear the couple standing next to you checking into the Flagler Club. Confused, you watch the concierge hand over the keys and tell the pair that their room is on the 7th floor of the resort. As you enter the elevator to ride to your own room, you notice that you don’t have access to the 6th or 7th floor- why?
Privacy and Luxury
As it turns out, the Flagler Club is a separate, 25-room boutique hotel located inside of the iconic Breakers Palm Beach. Occupying two floors and equipped with a spacious club lounge and private terrace, the Flagler Club offers an unheard level of luxury to special guests willing to pay for the experience. At around $1,200 a night, the perks are endless at the Flagler Club, including a chauffeured Tesla house car service, a customized in-room bar, complimentary food and beverages and a full-service dedicated staff member to handle any and every need, 24-hours a day.
The Breakers is just one of a number of hotels exploring the growing hotel-within-a-hotel trend that is popping up at select properties across the country. Aimed at a luxury-oriented, privacy-seeking clientele, these hidden properties have their own entrances and staff and don’t typically advertise. The hotel-within-a-hotel strategy is implemented to create something more upscale with higher levels of service and a more personalized and intimate feel. A similar concept to the club or concierge level of an upscale property, the hotel-within-a-hotel concept offers guests more than food and drink inclusivity. While club and concierge packages act as a VIP perk to loyal customers, the rooms are clustered in a designated area or spread throughout the hotel with typically the same design as all of the other guestrooms. At a hotel-within-a-hotel, nothing is replicated- not even the staff. Wondering where to find these elite hidden gems? Listen below are a few worth checking out.
