A Historic Landmark with a Contemporary Splash

From an icon of Nantucket hospitality comes a fully renovated destination resort in Palm Beach. The 32-room White Elephant Palm Beach is housed in the former Bradley Park Hotel - originally constructed in 1924 as one of the first resorts on Palm Beach's Main Street.
A landmark during the Roaring Twenties, the boutique hotel was built to accommodate many visitors traveling south during the winter season. It was initially owned by Colonel Edward R. Bradley, who ran a private and celebrated Beach Club casino. For more than 20 years, the hotel served as a magnet for business tycoons and high rollers before being listed with the Landmark Preservation Commission in 1980 in part to its architectural significance.
The footprint of the structure and the facade remains, while the interiors have been stripped to the bones and rebuilt by Boston-based Elkus Manfredi Architects. Transformed into one of the most luxurious properties in Palm Beach, the hotel showcases the history of the existing building while incorporating a contemporary interpretation of Mediterranean-revival architecture.
The White Elephant Palm Beach reflects the pulse and excitement of Palm Beach while capturing the spirit of a stately home, and brings style of luxury to a legendary destination. We look forward to having you stay with us this upcoming season so you can experience the timeless allure of White Elephant Palm Beach for yourself.
