The HILTON SINGER ISLAND OCEANFRONT RESORT is an excellent facility with all the amenities of a first class hotel located near beautiful West Palm Beach overlooking the Atlantic Ocean . Most of the resort's hotel rooms have balconies with Ocean Views and many also have island views of the intra-coastal waterway.  The rooms feature private voice mail, in room coffee makers with complimentary coffee, a refrigerator, hair dryer and in room movies. For the business minded, guestrooms have computer data ports and a work desk with ergonomically designed executive chairs. A business center is also located in the lobby. One of the best restaurants on the island is located at this Hilton resort and features fresh island ingredients prepared with a Caribbean flair. Recreational amenities include a heated swimming pool, wide sandy beaches, jogging trail and fitness center. Kid friendly activities include a children's pool and a vacation station activities program. Golf, tennis and a variety of water sports are available nearby. All Palm Beach area attractions are within an easy drive of the hotel including the boutiques and galleries of City Place and Worth Avenue and the nightlife of Clematis Street. The hotel provides a complimentary shuttle to local shopping and dining spots. World-class service, new surroundings and an oceanside setting like no other will welcome those TER members and  guests attending this year’s convention.  You can check out this facility by going to the hotel’s web page at www.hilton.com and then locate the Singer Island Oceanfront Resort facility.
