My boyfriend and I just finished up a 4 night stay at the Palmer House and we were very happy with our experience. The rooms were spotless, and all of the employees were so kind and eager to offer any assistance. One word of warning--the rooms are very sexy (clear glass showers and bathroom area) so be sure to stay here with someone you are very intimate with! You can't beat the location--right in the heart of South Beach. We would have liked a balcony, but for the small amount of time we spend in the room on vacation, it's not too big of a deal. We loved our room and would definitely stay here again--can't wait for the bar and pool area to open up!

I walked into palmer house without a reservation hoping to see if i could get a good deal for the july 4th weekend. we stayed 1 night here and the next night at the hotel intercontinental in miami. i enjoyed my stay at palmer house alot more. it's a small boutique hotel so the service was EXCEPTIONAL. the staff is amazing. they did have an issue with the valet driver outside and i feel he was unduly accused or reported for offering me a lower rate than the hotel. but in his defense, he offered me the rate before I was even a visitor at the hotel. i just asked to keep my car while i looked around for hotels in the area. anyway, thats just a distraction. location is great, people r excellent, rooms are as they appear in pictures, v. psychadelic and cool. switches were a little complicated despite the tutorial. definitely recommend it considering the rooms r new, staff is amazing and it's reasonably priced for the area. (you need to get dvd players or movies to choose from in the room. espn did not work when i came and wasn't fixed by the time i left. It didn't matter much but thought i should mention it for full disclosure)

My husband and I booked at The Palmer House the first day it re-opened. We were there for 2 nights (June 17 & 18) and had an incredible stay! The staff was so nice and helpful. They all seemed very happy to be working together and were eager to refer us to great places in South Beach. The room is beautiful and looks exactly like the ones they show on their site and the light show is cool! The bed is sooo comfortable: I must say that it feels good knowing that not too many people have slept in it yet!! Location is great! Beach towels and chairs at your disposition adds a nice touch to your stay! Don't hesitate, definitely consider booking at the Palmer House!

My fiancée and i arrive @ Palmer house on Wed morning and stayed there until Saturday afternoon. She was there for business and i tagged along for pleasure and a little beach time. The Palmer house is very nice and super clean, the staff was very nice and always offered a friendly greeting. Towels and chairs were available to take to the beach that is located a little over a block away. The rooms were very nice, very modern. Lots of accent lights and buttons. The shower was really nice and big. The location of the hotel is probably its best attraction so close to the beach and Ocean driver. Each morning we would have breakfast at the Cleavlander located right around the corner across from the beach. Our biggest dislike about the trip is when you are trying to take a walk down ocean dr and you have all the hosts from each and every bar and rest trying to lure you in, they really get pushy. Overall it was a great trip and would def recommend the Palmer house.

Coming from Montreal, we were on vacation in Florida and took a 3 day getaway without kids for the first time in such a long time! What a nice surprise to find a perfect hotel at such a great price! The hotel is a block away from the beach, the staff is friendly and very polite, from the people at the desk to the security guard! The rooms are romantic, modern and simple but chic. You can get parking 2 blocks away (washington & 12th) at 20$ a day. Breakfast is not included, but you can easily find something because it's such a great location.
I would recommend this hotel to all my friends & family - it was amazing - I just wish we could have stayed a few more days!

If you are heading down to Florida and are looking for an amazing hotel, the Palmer House on South Beach is where you should be booking! You will be impressed with the rooms, the location rocks and the employees go ABOVE AND BEYOND! If you need anything you should talk to a man named Thomas English. We talked to him and told him about somethings we were interested in while in Miami and the next morning when we came down he had printed off information about the sites, he also printed us google maps so we could get there with ease and then he checked with us the next to day to make sure we were ok and had a good time. YOU WILL NOT FIND BETTER!!!!!
