The success of FX’s “American Horror Story: Freak Show” series, set in Jupiter, Florida, in the 1950s, has brought the seaside town in Palm Beach County a bit of spotlight. But what’s worth noting for meeting planners is not its (mainly fictionalized) history on AHS, but a sparkling new resort.
Twenty miles from Palm Beach International Airport, the 179-room Wyndham Grand Jupiter at Harbourside Place debuted in late 2014. Built along the Intracoastal Waterway, it has a contemporary design combined with elegant meeting space. The 5,000-sq.-ft. Preserve Ballroom has floor-to-ceiling windows and direct access to the 4,900-sq.-ft. Mangrove Deck, providing an ideal setting for an indoor/outdoor welcome reception. Among other features are a 12,000-sq.-ft. rooftop plaza, more than 900 parking spaces and public marinas.
Chefs at the Wyndham bring fresh seafood to the table at Deep Blu Seafood Grille and serve up specialty tropical concoctions at the poolside bar. But if what you’re craving isn’t on the menu, head to one of the restaurants in the adjoining Harbourside Place, which officially opened in December 2014. The dining and shopping center includes Another Broken Egg Cafe, BurgerFi, Coffee Culture Cafe & Eatery and more.
