The Addison is Excellent! Receives 5 Star Diamond Award for 6th Year

I’m just going to come out and say it. Boca Raton is pretty damn lucky to have a magical place like The Addison in our town. My family and I were sitting outside on the venue’s patio enjoying Easter Brunch this week. And, despite the glitz and glamour of the event executed by their amazing team, we felt like we were HOME. I daresay…their staff feels like an extension of my own family at this point. We truly enjoy celebrating all of our family holidays in their back–err, I mean courtyard. So when it comes to Addison Boca Raton awards, I’m thrilled to announce that they’ve received a very special one for the 6th year in a row!
