Set on 200 waterfront acres, The Boca Raton is one of the premiere resort destinations in the U.S. Founded in 1926 as the Ritz-Carlton Cloister Inn, the resort was originally built by Boca Raton’s city planner and architect Addison Mizner. In honor of its upcoming 100th anniversary, Rockwell Group redesigned many of the public spaces, including the historic Cloister lobby, Palm Court, several new signature restaurants by Major Food Group, and the Tower guestrooms.
We were inspired to create cohesion and luxury, embracing Mizner’s original Mediterranean Revival style and embracing indoor-outdoor connections.
Rockwell Group stripped away previous renovations of the storied Palm Court to re-center it as the heart of the property—an inviting lobby and lounge serving as a bar and flexible common space.
Signature dining concepts from Major Food Group include an outpost of the New York brunch institution, Sadelle’s, and The Flamingo Grill, a midcentury American grill with a tropical feel inspired by Florida’s oceanfront residences.
The reconfigured guestrooms in the resort's Tower—the tallest building in Boca Raton—take advantage of the spectacular 360-degree vistas.
