Historic Colony Hotel in Palm Beach celebrates landmark designation

After a two-year delay due to COVID-19, the historic Colony hotel celebrated its landmark designation Thursday with a plaque unveiling and breakfast reception.

The event, which drew Town Council members, hotel co-owner and CEO Sarah Wetenhall, Landmarks Preservation Commission Chairman René Silvin and other local dignitaries, was held outside the 75-year-old hotel at 155 Hammon Ave.

The hotel was granted landmarks designation by the Town Council in January 2020. General Manager Bruce Seigel greeted guests before yielding the speaker’s podium to Mayor Danielle Moore, council member Ted Cooney, Silvin and Wetenhall.

Wetenhall and her husband, Andrew, bought the hotel in 2016 from a previous generation of owners that included her father-in-law, Bob Wetenhall Sr.
