The Palm is a lovely hotel with well-appointed rooms & outside "rooms" to relax in. Unfortunately, there is major construction next to property & there is constant sawing, hammering & equipment noises that prevent a peaceful stay. Miami Beach is under a major renovation, so it doesn't matter where you stay - there's going to be noise & plenty of it. While the food at the restaurant was good (go for the burger), it's quite pricey & you are very limited in eating options in this area. South Beach is a 1/2 hr walk & lots to do & many restaurants to choose from.
