The owner tries his best to overcharge the rooms according to the miami events. If...

Let's face it, Miami Beach is pricey but not here. Awesome location to walk to everything. Friendly staff. We stopped for two nights and we would have stayed longer if we could. I definitely would come back to stay. Only complaint is that the bed was at the bathroom door. Room was big just odd layout of furniture.

The James is very offbeat and charming, a little artsy oasis in the cool Art Deco area of South Beach. It is quiet, clean and 2 blocks from the beach. We enjoyed our stay. The rooms are pretty basic but the porch is interesting and a great place to read. The Lincoln Road pedestrian mall is around the corner, great...

Central placed hotel with very personal service and a very special atmosphere. Fine rooms with fridge, microwave and fine beds. Limited parking, but the staff is very flexible with finding a spot for you. No restaurant, so breakfast is not possible

Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Hotel is clean and beds are comfprtable. Definitely not the Four Seasons, but James Hotel is good for the room rate they charge. Block away from the beach. We were hardly in the room, so it was a good hotel for keeping our clothes and getting sleep before the next day started.
