We recently attended a wedding at The Palms and we were very pleased with the hotel. The staff was extremely professional, eager to please, and very friendly. From the front desk to the "towel bar" by the pool to the servers to housekeeping everyone made us feel welcome. The rooms were very comfortable and inviting. Although you could hear what was going on out in the hallway the noise levels were basically minimal. The wedding on the beach and all the activities associated with it (cocktail party, reception, and brunch) were enjoyable - fantastic job! If we ever return to Miami Beach we wouldn't hesitate to stay at The Palms again and would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing stay in the area.
