Most beautiful hotels & casinos to see

Will only have part of a day (off a cruise ship) but enjoy seeing lavish hotels & casinos & wondered which would be best to see in the Palm Beach area.

The Hyatt would be a great choice. It has the nicest grounds IMO and a very nice casino.

Wander down the beach to visit the Radisson, too. The birds are reason enough to stop by!

Good point Lori. The Radisson is my favorite hotel to stay at.

The Hyatt and the Radisson - they are close to each other and both have gorgeous grounds. Both have lots of parrots also, although if you hit the Radisson at the right time (bet 11AM &12) you will get to interact with them and take pictures - no charge for pictures. The caretaker (and owner of most of the birds) is one of the nicest people you will meet down there. His name is Victor.

Although I have to say that the casino's at both of these hotels aren't so great. The nicest casino (IMHO) is the Crystal Casino downtown by the cruise port, so you can stop there either to or from the hi rise area and the "cutest" one is also downtown. The Seaport Casino is very small and on the water, worth a quick stop in - one of the locals won a car while we were there in October it was quite the scene, lots of fun. The view is gorgeous at night.

I think the Riu is something to see. Although a small casino, the pool area is beautiful.

Can't dispute the hotel choices but as to the casino choices you do should go out of the Palm Beach area and visit Crystal in town and Alhambra in the low-rise area,

I would suggest Alhambra also, it's one of our favorites but in October the renovations were not done, cables hanging out of the ceiling and there was a side of the casino that was closed off with a drop cloth. If all of that is complete now, it would be worth a visit.
