What’s summer without a vacation by the sea? It’s time to check into one of the best beach hotels in America, as chosen by T+L readers.

No. 9 The Breakers Palm Beach, FL

11 of 31

Unsurpassed in terms of luxury when oil tycoon Henry Flagler built it in 1896, the Breakers outdid itself in a 1926 renovation modeled after Italian renaissance palaces. Still the 540-room resort, set on 140 beachfront acres, is pure drama, its palm-lined drive leading up to the twin-spired behemoth. The modern day intervenes in breezily tropical rooms, newly redesigned (an ongoing project, in mid-2010) in white and sand tones, and in the private poolside cabanas with flat-screens and concierge service.
