We did not have the pleasure of staying in the B&B, but we did visit The Backyard Bar many, many times and attended Sunday morning brunch at the B&B. The lush, green surroundings of the garden, the outstanding tapas, the comfortable bar and the extraordinarily convenient location make The Backyard Bar one of the most pleasant experiences in West Palm Beach. However, the friendly, welcoming staff is the real secret to the reason we went back over and over again during our stay - we could always count on a warm greeting of welcome on arrival. Sunday brunch is a study in the genteel way to enjoy a relaxing Sunday morning brunch on the front veranda. We highly recommend a visit to this wonderful place - you'll not be disappointed!

I Wish I Could've Stayed Longer!

Just a two night visit that I wish would've been our entire vacation. Just a short walk from City Place, this is prime location yet relaxed and low-key atmosphere. Protected from the crazy night life but available if necessary! Our breakfast was lovely, fresh fruit every morning, fresh coffee, and every night the bar is open on the back porch overlooking a gorgeous garden and patio area. We loved our time there and I hope I can go back soon!

Cozy, quaint & fun...

The Hibiscus House Downtown is charming, walking distance to City Place, Kravis Center, Convention Center and minutes away from Palm Beach (by car). Joanne, the Day Innkeepper, is professional, very entertaing, has a great sence of humor, not to mention makes a mean breakfast. We recommend this Inn..we gave it a thumbs up.

Very Charming

The staff made us feel welcome, we were treated like family. Our room was cozy and very clean (we had to laugh, we found as note under the bed that said "Yes we Even Clean Under the bed") Breakfast was great, best blueberry pancakes! We had a wounderful time.
