The Boca Raton, the 200-acre waterfront luxury resort and private club initially opened in 1926 as the Ritz-Carlton Cloister Inn, has just opened Tower, its fully-reimagined fifth hotel, set within the city’s tallest building. While guests at the iconic Boca Raton have had four distinct hotels to choose from since the resort reopened last year following $175 million in upgrades, the addition of Tower ushers in a new era of modern luxury, offering unrivaled levels of style, sophistication, and service.
Every detail in the $65-million Rockwell Group-led redesign has been accounted for, with Tower’s 244 guestrooms and suites offering a stylish, contemporary take on a waterfront stay. Most of the pink-hued tower’s spacious rooms have stunning ocean-to-Intracoastal views, and inside, a soothing palette of sandy neutrals combines with warm wood accents to create an atmosphere that’s at once modern and serene. Plush beds are outfitted with custom Sferra linens, and bathrooms, some with deep soaking tubs, offer luxe toiletries from London-based Molton Brown.
Service and amenities at the Tower include dedicated butlers, either human or robot (Johnnie and Ethel, named after the monkey pets of the Boca Raton’s original owner and famed architect Addison Mizner, will soon be available to deliver snacks and other necessities to guests’ rooms), a comfortable lounge with complimentary pastries, coffee and afternoon snacks, and unique offerings for bookworms and audiophiles—a listening salon offers headphones by top audio brand Master & Dynamic, while a book lending library was created in conjunction with luxury publisher Assouline.
Tower joins The Boca Raton’s four other hotels—Beach Club, Bungalows, Yacht Club, and Cloister—which combine to offer more than 1,000 rooms and suites. Guests have access to experiences across the property, including an 18-hole golf course, a racquet club with 16 tennis courts and six pickleball courts, the award-winning Spa Palmera, seven swimming pools, and a half-mile of private beach.
The Boca Raton is also home to some of South Florida’s top culinary experiences, thanks to a partnership with New York’s culinary juggernaut Major Food Group. The esteemed group is behind four unique concepts within the Boca Raton: Principessa Ristorante, serving Italian classics in a space reminiscent of a Lake Como villa; The Flamingo Grill, a classic chophouse; beloved bagel-and-brunch spot Sadelle’s; and the newest addition, Japanese Bocce Club, another Rockwell-designed space, led by chef de cuisine Takao Soejima, formerly a head sushi chef at Morimoto.
Rooms at Tower start at $699 per night
