“Nice, and good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Perfect location. Friendly straff. The most pleasant thing about the hotel was the decor, style and furniture, throughout the hotel. Nice room, good bed, and the best minibar I have ever seen. Not value for money in the resturant. Had lunch there, but the rest of the meals outside the hotel.

Loved the hotel. I had already been to Miami but sometimes stay at the James Hotel made ​​all the difference. Beautiful hotel with artwork inspiring, good service from staff, wonderful resort and great location. I thought great bikes that the hotel offers to guests. I only have two complaints, charging the umbrellas on the beach and the late opening of the cleanliness of the rooms. But the overall rating is very good. I intend to return often

Spent a stunning week here - service was exceptional, rooms were huge and immaculate and amenities were wonderful. If I return to Miami I wouldn't even look at another hotel to go to! Absolute treat of a week here, couldn't be a better location!

Room Tip: One with an ocean view!

The hotel is clean and the rooms are well kept. Its a very comfortable stay and one of the few top tier hotels on south beach that actually has all the amenities (private beach access, pool, fitness center etc)...a lot of hotels on sobe dont have these ammenities...this one has them all for a somewhat better rate than some of the others.

I highly recommend this hotel. The staff is very professional and very nice people. They're always smiling and there for you if you need any assistance. The servers at pool are great and fast. The rooms are very nice and clean.

If you're looking for a beach location, close to the Art Deco district, Lincoln mall, then this is your place. We enjoyed our stay - great stretch of South Beach, good pool, and polite service. The hotel is stylish and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful, and its an ideal location to explore Miami or just to have fun.

We spent two nights at the hotel, it is well located and walking distance to shops and restaurants and right on the beach.. The staff were very friendly, only problem was the rooms were too small, especially for american standards. Not worth what we paid for.

Room Tip: check room size before you book.
