Both me and my boyfriend stayed at the Palmer House for 4 nights and 5 days . I must say first that the location was perfect . We arrived at the Palmer House to be greeted by Lloyd who helped us with our bags and directed us to our room while Thomas at the front desk assisted us with check-in which was quite quick and easy. Upon arriving to our room Lloyd showed us all the amenities and answered any questions we had as well offering us any help he could extend throughout our stay . My boyfriend is a very picky guy and was amazed at the great use of space of the room. Although the rooms are small they were very comfortable and although we were surrounded by busy south beach we couldn't hear any of the noise from our 2nd floor room. A young lady at the front desk was quite helpful as well (very embarrassed that i cant recall her name) she assisted us with printing our itineraries and calling cabs and anything else we needed . I called the front desk many times for numerous things and she was always friendly and helpful. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants the beach is minutes away and you have many night clubs to choose from, all can be recommended by the hotel staff . I haven't even been back a week yet and I've recommend this hotel to all my friends, especially for the couples. We're already planning our trip back and you can bet that we'll be staying at the Palmer House . I cant wait for the opening of the other building and pool ,very excited!!! Although i think that they should maintain the name they have now : ).

I stayed at the Palmer for one night in August. It was an excellent experience and I do not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone. The decor and layout is funky but cool, the service was professional and room was nicely equipped. Good internet (wireless), great bathroom and a soft and comfy bed.

The room was a bit dark for my taste and the lighting system gets a bit tricky. But that´s about it for negatives. Book there. You won´t regret it.

the team is very friendly, they give really good recommentations to restaurants, bars, clubs etc. Rooms are in a very cool design, all looks valuable and is very clean. What I also loked was the iPhone dock-in station so you can here your own music or radio stations. WIFI was free at this time - perfect! Only thing I missed was sunlight in my room: the window view was not appealing. I can definitly recommend this hotel!

The location is excellent for party goers and couples. As soon as we got there we were treated as if we were the only ones there. John at the front desk was very polite and helpful. So was lloyd one of the workers there that really goes out of his way to make sure your experience is enjoyable and seamless as possible. The room is definitely couple orientated. Everything from the boutique size to the mood lighting buttons. I am definitely coming back to Palmer and I can't wait to see the place once it is fully renovated.

I booked at Palmer House after checking all the reviews in Tripadvisor, and I have to say "Thank you TripAdvisor!". The hotel is absolutely great, in a wonderful location and the room is definetely the sexiest and more "chic" room I have ever stayed in.
The staff is absolutely GREAT too, and they know how to make you feel at home by offering assistance in every aspect.
Finally, they give you towels and chairs for the beach, which by the way is located only 1 block away.

Final conclusion, if you go to South Beach, choose this hotel !!!

From the moment we checked in we knew we had hit the jackpot with this hotel. Staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. When traveling with teenagers you don't expect them to get excited about a hotel room but ours (14 & 17) raved about it. The decor is superb, beds large and comfortable and the lighting .. wow! We are a family that likes to try different places but we all agreed that on our next visit to Miami we will definitely book this hotel again.

Great hotel, great location, fantastic styling! We love boutique hotels and this one is clearly a top notch boutique hotel! So much mire fun than staying in boring hotel chains! Only little minus I would give it: we had a room with a connecting door. It felt like we shared our room with the neighbors. We could hear every word they were saying and we are sure they could too. Would definitely come back! Just ask for a room without connecting doors!
