Police say the man entered the hotel at about 10:45 p.m. and robbed the business at gunpoint.
Surveillance-camera footage from the robbery shows the man talking with the front-desk employee at the hotel, who is blurred in the video released by West Palm Beach police. The footage then shows the man casually leaning over the counter while pointing a gun at the clerk.
The hotel clerk can be seen in the video handing the suspect several stacks of cash. The man then flees from the hotel.
A spokesman for the police department would not disclose how much money was taken during the robbery.
