Description:
The Boca Raton Resort, which opened February 6, 1926 as the Ritz-Carlton Cloister Inn, is a large resort and membership-based club located in Boca Raton, Florida. Originally designed by California-born architect, Addison Mizner, it was supposed to have been the latter of two hotels, the other being an oceanfront hotel. However the Ritz-Carlton Investment Corporation became involved in the project, and wanted the oceanfront hotel redesigned, so construction began on the smaller 100 room inn on the west side of Lake Boca Raton. Throughout the Florida land boom of the 1920s, Mizner visioned and began to plan Boca Raton as a major resort destination. To that extent a golf course and residential community, the Ritz-Carlton Park, was planned west of the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad. Today this is the site of Sugar Sand Park and Boca Del Mar. Nevertheless, the resort didn't gain a full service country club until the acquisition of the Boca Country Club, seven miles northwest of the main hotel, immediately outside of the city limits.

Currently, the club is part of Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts by the Hilton Hotels Corporation, an affiliate of the Blackstone Group. Before the Spring of 2009, LXR Luxury Resorts operated the resort., South Florida Business Journal, 2005-08-18. Retrieved on 2009-05-16.
