I don't frequent Miami very often so I'm not sure what sure exactly what to expect and how to compare but I can tell you my opinions and my experience. Overall it was very good. Location and overall ambience was nice for this one night stay. It took a while in line to check in but once we did, were... More

I stayed at the Royal Palm for two nights in March 2015 that just happened to coincide with a gigantic rave music festival. I was very worried that the hotel would be loud with all the people attending the festival coming in at all hours of the night, but I was very pleasantly surprised by how quiet it was. The... More

Was little skeptical after reading recent reviews about change in ownership. But got a really good price so thought instead of motel on North Beach lets try this nice looking hotel. And boy I was right on money. Awesome location, great pool, good food, friendly pool staff even umbrellas and towels provided on the beach. Can't go wrong. It was... More

First the good - the hotel is very well located for South Beach and is pretty much at the of Ocean Drive, so good for the nightlife options there if that is your purpose for the trip. It also has its own section of the beach, though really so do most upscale hotels along South Beach. On top of that,... More

....everyone else- beware. All night parties in the hallways, front desk never answers the phone, lines at the front are long and ever-present, the staff tries their best but the hotel is severely understaffed and a very small pool. My floor was terrorized all night long by young, loud 20-somethings and the hotel did nothing.

we arrived to discover that the hotel had been taken over on the 8th March, 2 days before we arrived. Had we known this we definately would not have booked. we had travelled all the way from the UK and it cost us a LOT of money. It was the VERY poor neighbour of Lowes next door. The only consolation... More

Stayed here with a group of business associates for a long weekend. Location is good but....They need more staff at the front desk. Long lines. Definitely a younger crowd no doubt associated with the Ultra Music Fest. Typically most people checking in also had a 12 pack of beer. Pool area was packed and loud. Probably not a great place...

Recently stayed here for 5 days with friends for a much awaited time away from cold NYC. We have visited this hotel before and we love the location and of course the hotel itself. Unfortunately, during this stay the service was not as great as we had hoped. Perhaps because they were in transition mode as it had been announced... More

I booked this hotel based on previous experience staying at The James in NYC. Turns out this hotel was sold to the Starwood group at the beginning of March and it's pretty obvious there are many kinks to be worked out. The hotel rooms itself are mediocre at best and definitely not worth the price tag (FYI there is also... More
