The notable New York-based architectural firm Schultze & Weaver designed Palm Beach's famed The Breakers resort. The duo was known later in their careers for their design of several Biltmore Hotels, including those in Miami and Los Angeles. Built in the time of grand hotels, The Breakers stands today as an impressive masterpiece of Gilded Age luxury.
