Getaway Trip with my husband
Posted Jun 10, 2015
My husband and I planned this trip, on a spur of the moment. Quite a long time ago, I was visiting family in Palm Beach and a family member was staying at The Brazilian Court. I always thought the hotel was beautiful having viewed it that time years ago. When my husband and I decided to take a much needed break alone for a long weekend I remembered The Brazilian Court. I thought the online pictures looked just as beautiful as I had remembered it to be. Upon arrival, I had a very different feeling about this hotel. In fact, the entire time we stayed at the hotel we had the very uncomfortable feeling of not being quite as wealthy as everyone else in the hotel seemed to be. We are a middle class New Jersey family who make 100,000 + annually as a family and I feel we are far from a lower class of people. However, everyone, right down to the doormen and reception staff, made you feel less-than welcome to be there. We dined one night in the Cafe. The restaurant food was very tasty, however, extremely expensive and extremely small portioned. We paid $160.00 for the two of us for dinner and that only included 2 alcoholic beverages total. The pool was beautiful and we enjoyed that amenity very much. Our room was gorgeous, and our bath/shower area was very pleasing. The bed, however, was very uncomfortable.
