We are proud to share with you that The Breakers has been nominated as one of Florida's top 100 buildings by the Florida chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The "Florida Architecture: 100 Years, 100 Places" competition is one of many events planned to celebrate the organization's 100th anniversary and to recognize the most architecturally significant buildings in our state.

As you are a valued guest of The Breakers, we hope you will join us in voting for the resort as often as you can from now through April 6, 2012.  There is no limit to the number of times an individual can vote. The winner will be announced in early April and honored at the chapter's annual convention held at The Breakers in July 2012. It would be very exciting if The Breakers was named the #1 building in Florida! Vote Now>

We are honored to showcase the original 1926 building and its breathtaking public rooms, all hand painted by Italian artisans, to thousands of visitors to enjoy each year. The parallel path of preservation and modernization has allowed The Breakers to thrive in the luxury hotel sector and survive as the only large historic luxury resort in the country still in the hands of its original owners.  At 116 years old, this is an unusual feat.

Given the number of other buildings included in this survey, it would be an honor to rank at the top of the list. Thank you for your vote and, as always, for being our guest. We look forward to welcoming you back to the resort again in the near future.

Warmest Regards,

The Breakers Team 

PS: You can vote for more than one and The Colony Hotel is on the list as well.
