4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Great location, great service, clean, lovely rooms. Will do it again soon we hope. Sleek and modern. Felt very South Beach without trying too hard. Everyone should do the Raven Run at the 5th street lifeguard stand while staying here.

Fantastic hotel located in the heart of South Beach. Big rooms, newly renovated in 2014, fitness-center, spa and private area on the beach - this hotel is what you are looking for! Lincoln Road with shopping and restaurants only 5 min walking distance from the hotel. Friendly, serviceminded and professional staff - they are truly there for their guests. Our biggest recommendations. A true Royal experience on Miami Beach.

I absolutely LOVED this hotel! My hubby and I celebrated the Fourth of July holiday from a Wednesday to a Sunday at The James Royal Palm. Words cannot expressed how beautiful this hotel is, as well as all the great amenities included. First we checked in and was immediately offered cold towels due to the heat and cucumber water. The check in process was super quick, and our bellhop immediately let us know that anything we needed he was there to help. The bellhop Anthony was GREAT!!! He recommended several places to eat and bars to have good drinks. When my hubby and I got to our hotel we immediately were VERY impressed!!!! The room was spacious and the shower is simply AMAZING!!! We also had a very good view of both the beach and ocean from our room. One thing that I really liked about the hotel was the direct beach access, great location to Lincoln Shopping center and Ocean Dr. My hubby and I took advantage of the free bicycles at the hotel rode up and down Ocean Dr. I really like the fact the the hotel provides two beach chairs and a beach box with water and snacks while relaxing on the beach. I also like that the hotel was quiet and peaceful, and not a lot of kids running around, which is the main reason why we did not stay next door at Loews. My hubby and I will definitely return Miami and stay here again!!!!

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.
