Default West Palm Beach Florida

We are heading to West Palm to see family and was wondering about a nice place to stay for the money or if anyone on here might have a vacation rental available. The dates would be March 20 - 25. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. So far Hawthorne Suites looks like the best choice, but have not stayed at one before. Also any OSO members in that area that would like to meet up let me know. Sorry about the short notice but, main reason for trip is to buy moth-in-law another vehicle, anybody have a van for about 5K.

Thanks
Mike

Not sure why you picked WPB......kind of ghetto.

Singer Island (EAST OF INTRACOASTAL, VERY IMPORTANT EAST!) is nicer and Palm Beach Gardens/Jupiter are nicer 10-20 miles north.

To the south, EAST Delray and Boca Raton are pricey but nice as well.

West Palm is the where the wife's family is from. We usually stay with them and were cramped. So this time we are staying on our own. I will check out the areas you mentioned.

There's a Marriott in Delray Beach, which sits right across the street from the beach. You have Bostons and a couple of other small bars on the street in front of beach plus it's on Atlantic Ave which has all the bars and food you could want. Highly recommend this area.

A little farther south, but a great little neighborhood where you can walk to everything:

try the resort at singer island. Great suite style rooms, and on the ocean with a killer pool. pricey, but not outrageous. I stay there when I am in town.

If you decide on the resort on Singer Island(Marriot) ask them for the Jet Aviation(Avitat) rate. It's around $150.00 per night opposes to $249.00 regular. If they ask, just tell them your flying into PBI and using that FBO.
