Last year we talked about a weekend retreat for the Buttermilk Bakery Gang.  Well, I think I found our Shangri-La. September 29-30.  A Saturday night stay.  It was so relaxing, one night felt like a week away.

Let's extend the Buttermilk conversation and chill out at the Hotel Palms for a night (or two if you like).

The Hotel Palms is a modern, beachside motor court hotel established in 1947.  Three blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and walking distance to shops and restaurants of Town Center.  Average rates start at $149 for a double queen room. 

The place has been renovated in a modern style that is cool and unique.  Check out my photos.

How to reserve your spot:

Call or contact the Hotel Palms and mention my name to reserve your room.  We have a block of five reserved.  Most of them are double queens so sharing is suggested.  Use a credit/debit card to hold the room you want. It won't get charged until you arrive. 

There are 11 rooms total so if more get booked that's great!  Rates start at $149, so sharing makes it affordable and fun.

If you need to cancel, you can do that up to 24 hours in advance.
