The Ben is a luxury boutique hotel overlooking the Palm Harbor Marina in downtown West Palm Beach, Miami, FL. Part of the Marriott Autograph Collection, it boasts 8,000 square feet of event space and stunning sea views, making it an ideal wedding venue. The Ben was inspired by one of Palm Beach County’s original great homes, Byrd Dewey’s Ben Trovato Estate, built in 1892. The name derives from the Italian phrase “ben trovato”, meaning “well invented” or “well found.” At the estate, Byrd Dewey entertained many famous names, including Woodrow Wilson and the Vanderbilts. The Ben was intended to continue her tradition of hosting with an unconventional hotel experience that provides opportunities for mixing, meeting new people, and enjoying lively conversation.
