"This 90-room hotel is a youngster by Palm Beach terms—it was only built in 1947——but it echoes its neighbors' hushed, moneyed elegance."

"Located in the historic El Cid neighborhood, just 1 mile from City Place and Clematis Street, the very cool Biba answers the call for an inexpensive, chic hotel that young hipsters can call their own." Full review

Ask for a room that's on the quieter Belvedere Road, as opposed to those facing South Olive Avenue.

"The hippest choice in the area, Hotel Biba is a motor inn transformed into a fabulous boutique hotel."

"A hip boutique hotel with a sixties retro look... Best suited to people for whom price is more important than amenities."
