Our family of four are staying a Royal Palm hotel at south beach at Miami for the weekend. Yes, we are still staying here but can't wait to give the review. It has been an excellent experience. The location is just perfect. Direct access to the beach and close to everything. We did book an ocean view room and we... More

The Beach crew at The James are wonderful! Nathan, Jesse and the whole team kept us smiling well taken care of with their happy personalities and first rate service. The daily experience was consistently perfect!

Been going to South Beach for years but primarily stayed at The W. Took a chance on The Royal Palm after SPG took over in March and was very pleasantly surprised. My wife and I brought two college aged daughters for quick spring break trip. We got an ocean front room with great view looking straight out at the ocean... More

Agree with all the favorable reviews. Great location. Checkin snafus handled well by management. Service is excellent particularly on the beach with NATHAN and the rest of the crew. Nathan was able to make some 'local' recommendations that worked out well for our family.

Though the room was a bit bizarre (small and with a large window from the bathroom into the room) the hotel is clean, nice, has free bicycles to borrow, a great beach and they bring you free water bottles while at the beach or pool.

The James Royal Palm is in a great location if you are interested in being near South Beach. Its on Collins and less than 2 blocks away from Ocean Drive. The hotel staff were very personable and helpful. The rooms are clean but do show a little bit of wear and tear. I enjoyed the location on the beach and... More

It's in the heart of a busy area of the Miami Beach getaway tourist zone; however, once on the property you'd never notice. The Royal Palm is now owned by the hotel brand James. It was once an art deco hotel on the Miami beach strip that personified what Miami was in the 80's. Many of the hotels in that... More

I was here on business and booked in here as it was close to where I needed to be. Not having much knowledge of the area or the other options, I can only say this is a perfectly pleasant and comfortable hotel with a lovely lobby bar for evening cocktails and a small coffee bar for a light breakfast. Main... More

The property is in the throws of changing to become a Starwood hotel. The location of this hotel could not be better. Near South Beach, restaurants, Lincoln Rd. on the beach. The rooms are small but have everything you need. We stayed here years ago and thought the pool area was so comfortable and well taken care of. But the... More
