I recently visited The James Royal Palm and enjoyed my stay. The property is located within walking distance of Lincoln Rd., Espanola Way, a Starbucks, and the beach walk. The staff are very helpful and the property is beautiful. I had a nice relaxing stay. They also have a FL resident discount which made a weekend stay very affordable.

This is just the Perfect Place to stay on South Beach! We had the best time at The James With Our 2 children of age 3 and 6. The pool is amazing, the Beach is just really comfortable and the service is magnificent. We could all just relax and enjoy the sun and the water. The Room was really spacious... More

I was expecting a lot more from this hotel- service was inconsistent, room was not at all what I thought it would be. Take note- an ocean view balcony is really a teeny gross concrete balcony that if I strained my neck I could see a sliver of the ocean and certainly wouldn't want to stay out there for "the... More

Excellent location, staff and hotel. The hotel is family friendly, is not a party hotel. Hotel's location was perfect for my wife and I, 3 blocks from Lincoln road and 2 from south beach restaurants. Beach access and amenities were excellent as well.

This hotel is not the cookie-cutter type of hotel that can be found elsewhere and certainly not for everyone. This hotel is very retro and reflects the attitude that South Beach has to offer. The overall staff was very friendly and down to Earth which made me feel welcomed at the outset. My room was comfortable and the location is... More

This was our first stay at The James Royal Palm and we would definitely stay there again! The staff is outstanding, as are the rooms. We did not have a meal there, but I'm sure the food would be very good. The location is very convenient for walking to the outdoor restaurants and shops. If you leave from the beach... More

We combined a business trip with a pleasure couples weekend. Our room was smaller than expected but we had a terrific ocean view. We really used the James Hotel amenities. The gym was equipped enough to give us a good workout. We also used the complimentary bikes on the beach directly behind the hotel. We ate several times at the... More

My partner and I visit Miami Beach rather frequently (a quick trip from our home in Orlando). For this trip, we rendezvoused with my parents, and they chose the James Royal Palm to stay at. To say that it is beautifully decorated, would be an understatement. Every piece of furniture and art fit perfectly into the cool, calm vibe of... More
