A LOCAL’S GUIDE TO OLD FLORIDA HOSPITALITY
How to Find the Best Old Florida Vacation Resorts-
July 4, 2016 by Chef Dennis Littley
Living in Florida has taught me many things. Shade is your friend, weather is unpredictable, and taking a nap in the middle of the day when it’s the hottest can be a very good thing. What I wasn’t expecting to learn was that Old Florida Hospitality and Comfort still existed. If you knew where to look for it.
About a year after I arrived in the Orlando area I was introduced to the Superior Small Lodging of Florida. This unique lodging group is made up of individually owned small hotels, inns, bed & breakfasts, cottages and luxury condos. And the owners/innkeepers are committed to providing each guest with an extraordinary vacation experience.
That my friends is key to you enjoying your vacation. “Old Florida Lodging and Hospitality” is alive and well, you just have to know where to look.
Over the last two years I’ve had the pleasure of staying at many of the best resorts in Florida and these are ten of my favorites (in no particular order).
As we drive further down the coastline to West Palm Beach, we come to the Casa Grandview.
The Casa Grandview is a Bed and Breakfast and each morning you’ll be greeted with a sumptuous breakfast that will more than fuel your daily outings. Just across the bridge you’ll find Palm Beach in all its glory. Take a stroll down Worth Avenue and enjoy a bite at Ta-boo. You never know who might stop in, while you’re there. Read More

Chef Dennis Stops By for a Visit at Casa Grandview
I’m Chef Dennis, join me on my Culinary Journey as I share my recipes and stories from my life and my adventures out and about in Florida. And along the way I’ll show you how to make Restaurant Style Dishes in your own home!
I fell in love with food at an early age, and realized that there couldn’t be a better way to make a living than by making people happy through food.
I began blogging in 2009 as a resource for my culinary students, and soon found myself with followers from around the world, at which time I adopted my “real food recipes for real people” philosophy for cooking. Which was followed with the “In My Restaurant Kitchen Series” where I teach how to make restaurant style dishes in the comfort of your own home at a fraction of the cost - Read More at Ask Chef Dennis
Chef Dennis Littley's Interview with Cheryl Grantham
Oct 26, 2015
"I love Florida……sigh, I just can’t say it enough! There are so many beautiful and diverse areas in this great state that I think I could explore Florida everyday for the rest of my life and never see it all. Recently thanks to the wonderful folks at Casa Grandview and Superior Small Lodging I got to spend some time exploring the West Palm Beach Area. And I know I say this quite frequently on my travels, but the Casa Grandview was simply paradise (after all there is a lot of Paradise in Florida)."

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (April 30, 2015 ) – Circa 1925 Casa Grandview Historic Luxury Inn, Cottages & Suites, located at 1410 Georgia Avenue, West Palm Beach, was recently honored by being accepted into Select Registry, a portfolio of premier inns, bed and breakfasts, and boutique hotels throughout the United States and Canada.

Casa Grandview FODOR'S REVIEW
"In West Palm's charming Grandview Heights historic district—and just minutes away from both downtown and the beach—this warm and personalized B&B offers a wonderful respite from South Florida's big-hotel norm. With 17 eclectic units spread over a city block, Casa Grandview's principal "inn," cottages, and suites exemplify Florida architecture through the decades circa 1919–1949, but come equipped with plenty of modern-day amenities, too. Each unit or room has its own name, personality, furnishings, and history.
With the likes of Florida "craftsman" cottages, 1948–art deco cabana-bungalows, and the principal "inn"—a co-joined 1919 Spanish Mission home and 1925 Mediterranean Revival home refitted with modern amenities—Casa Grandview keeps Florida's fledgling history in style." Read More

Books Do Furnish a Hotel Room
December 10, 2014 By Terry Teachout.
I’m the kind of person who, when he enters a house for the first time, is irresistibly drawn to its bookshelves. Rightly or wrongly, I assume that their contents (or lack of same) will reveal much about the occupant. This irresistible conditioned reflex operates even when I’m in a hotel room or other public place where books are on display. Yes, I know that they were probably bought by the foot from some books-as-decoration outfit, but I still find them fascinating to peruse.
I flew down to West Palm Beach on Monday to see a show and give a couple of talks, and I opted to stay at Casa Grandview, a B&B in Grandview Heights, a wonderfully quaint historic district that is, like so many Florida neighborhoods, a glorious mishmash of random architectural styles. Read more

"Recommendations for the Best Hotels in Palm Beach County"
When most people think of a luxury holiday in southern Florida, Palm Beach County hotel resorts spring to mind: The Breakers, The Ritz Carlton or The Colony. But if your idea of luxury includes space defined in square footage, then the price of your luxury Florida holiday can zoom in Palm Beach. If that seems a bit too rich for your budget especially in the current global economy, a different - and surprisingly affordable - luxury alternative can be found just across the bridge from Palm Beach proper, in a quaint historic district in downtown West Palm Beach called Grandview Heights at Casa Grandview.
