Travel & Lodging


We hope to welcome you to Delray Beach in 2023! The information on this page will be updated shortly.

If you are coming from out of town, it is important to note that January is the height of the vacation season in Delray Beach! We suggest you reserve a hotel room and car as soon as possible. To reserve a room at the festival’s special per-night rate, call the hotel, mention the Palm Beach Poetry Festival special event rate, and secure a reservation by credit card well in advance of the  hotel block cutoff date. Room blocks fill quickly, and after that date, special rates will no longer apply. Remaining rooms in the block will be made available for public sale, and may no longer be available.

For the Hyatt Place and The Colony, you may not require a car, as most consider these walking distance from the festival venue, Old School Square, 51 North Swinton Ave., Delray Beach, FL 33444. We urge all workshop applicants to make reservations at the time you apply. If you are not admitted to a workshop of your choice, you may cancel your reservation without penalty. If you wait until notification in November, room blocks may be sold out.
