Me and my wife absolutely loved this hotel! Spent one day upon arrival to Miami and then two days finishing off our holiday in Miami. Rooms are very spacious and beds extremely comfortable. The lush garden with the small bar and 24/7 open pool was really nice, and the direct beach access makes this hotel good for both being a “shopping-base” as well as a relaxing sunbathe retreat!
Impeccable service across the hotel, everyone eager to help out if we needed anything or had questions or comments.
The huge veranda in connection to the bar was the ideal place to wind down at night. Great beer selection which made me stay an hour longer than anticipated on more than one night… The only downside here is that the bar-staff mostly stayed inside which naturally affected the service somewhat. But nothing that was too bothering in all honesty.
The breakfast deserves to be mentioned! Even though a bit pricy (as for most US hotels) it was absolutely wonderful! Me and my wife consider ourselves as somewhat of breakfast connoisseur’s, and this breakfast is up there on the top three list! Not too overwhelming selection wise, but what they had on display was of very high quality! You really got the feeling that they value quality over quantity. Saying that, it’s not continental in any way. They have bagels, yogurt drinks, waffles, fresh fruits, naturally scrambled eggs (really good!) and bacon as well as an omelette-guy that could make your eggs just the way you want them. The only thing missing was the well-known American pancakes. However, the Belgian waffles by far made up for it!
With both me and my wife being true gym addicts, we had to try the hotel gym of course. Even though the gym-site was fairly small, they had good equipment for all body parts, including leg press and cable cross with loads of grips and of course dumbbells up to fairly heavy. Size-wise, I don’t think the gym could accommodate more than 3/4 people weightlifting at the same time. But something tells me this is not a common problem…
All and all we both loved the hotel, and The Palms will most certainly be able to welcome us back on our next visit to Miami!
