I stayed at The Palms for work in March 2013. I was expecting the hotel to be much nicer than it was. The room was large but mediocre - I thought it could have used a facelift. There were just some minor details that made it look dated. It was clean, however, which is most important.
The location of the hotel was interesting. It is right on the beach and the boardwalk is right behind it. However, there are no other restaurants to speak of within walking distance. My colleague and I had to walk 30 minutes away in traffic to get to the shopping area where all the restaurants are. The food and drinks at the hotel are quite expensive but we did eat dinner there and the quality of the food was very good.
It is not the The Palms fault, but there was construction going on next door and there was incessant pounding and grinding for hours. It stopped around 4-5 pm.
Keep in mimd it is $30 per night to park at The Palms. It may be comparable to other hotels in the area, but I thought that was very expensive.
I have stayed at other hotels in Miami which I thought were much nicer and in a better location than The Palms. If I were going on vacation here I would probably choose another hotel.
