Boca Raton Resort & Club celebrates its 90th anniversary
This February Boca Resort will celebrate its 90th anniversary! Famed architect Addison Mizner created the property in 1926. He modeled the resort after Spanish-style castles. Mizner was a fun-loving man who had unconventional behavior and pet monkeys. His trips to China gave him a fondness for silk pajamas, which he decided were perfectly proper for street wear. He also delighted in parading around with his pets and was reportedly seen on more than one occasion promenading with two chows, a small monkey on one shoulder, and a macaw on the other.
The celebration will look back on past decades and marvel at the splendor that the Boca Resort has brought to guests of past and present. The 90th festivities will continue the whole year round. The kick off to the 90th begins on February 5th with a 1920’s themed cocktail hour complete with live music, a specialty cocktail menu, as well as an Addison Mizner look-alike, who will be accompanied by his pet monkey Johnnie Brown, paying homage to the resort’s founder and his love of monkeys.
Throughout 2016, guests will have the opportunity to participate in various activities and dining options that tie into the resort’s colorful history. Guests will receive complimentary postcards upon check-in with historical photos and facts. There will also be an app available for smartphones that will take guests through different historical points of the property so that guests can learn about the resort’s storied past.
Besides fun-filled activities and events, guests will enjoy sales on room rates as well as spa services in 2016. Each month, our Waldorf Astoria Spa will offer select spa treatments for 90 dollars.
We hope you’ll join us in celebrating this year, and we thank you for 90 years of Boca Magic!Previous Post Next Post
