Fabulous Couple Escape

My boyfriend and I truly enjoyed our recent stay at The James Royal Palm. First of all, the property is beautiful. We loved the easy beach access along with the 2 chairs and umbrella everyday. (There's a $21/day resort fee that covers the chairs, umbrella, and bottled water/fruit that is delivered to you on the beach...well worth it) We also enjoyed the smaller, quieter pool deck onthe 2nd floor. The staff at the hotel was excellent. We could not have met nicer, friendlier people who were more than happy to please us! Our original room had a problem with the sinks so we were moved to another room immediately and it was great. Only complaints? The room service is apparenltly not 100%...many people in the hotel were complaining all week. We were there Monday-Friday and our room was cleaned everyday except 1. However, they DO have turndown service which is nice and not too common in SoBe. Also, the food/drink service is a little slow on the beach/pool, but it isn't terrible when you're lounging in the sun. The bathroom doors are also kind of weird because they don't exactly close! Otherwise, we had a fabulous getaway and we would stay at the hotel again in a heartbeat!

A Fun Weekend in South Beach

Hotel was very stylish with Mid-Century, Modern design in soft ocean/beach colors. Pool area next to beach was nice although too small for total number of guests using the facility. Finishings and furniture in room were high quality, comfortable bed & pillows, nicely stocked mini-bar. Only compliant was over-all size of room: we "upgraded" from the standard room to have an ocean view and sitting area but still was really cramped and view of ocean was off the side, not direct. Definitely would get a Suite next time.

Great South Beach Weekend getaway place

Great location, walk straight out to the beach. Very much right in the center of Soith Beach. You can walk everywhere if you wish. Ocean view was everything promised. Our balcony was very private. When the room was not ready in time the staff comped some things to show use that they were sensitive to the delay. Hotel management is present everywhere and seemed genuinely interested in making our stay excellent. Even the beach attendants were hustling around trying their best to please. Brings lots of cash for tips though. Great south beach experience. Highly reccomended.

Way at Tapas Y Tintos on Hispanola Way for the best authentic Tapas. It's three blocks from the hotel then walk off your meal with a stroll down Collins ave for people watching and shopping

What a big improvement !

First stay during WMC in 2011 sucked! No free wifi and it barely worked .. To say the least I was very disappointed. Some rooms were updated and some were not. The hallway carpets were very nasty. The hotels food/bars were a joke. My girlfriend and I just spent 3nights (4/10-4/12/14) at the 'NEW' James and loved everything around it! The lobby has a new coffee bar which was amazing and a hotel operated restaurant on 2nd floor which was beautiful! I noticed a new dark wood staircase and updated furniture/decor throughout the lobby as well. The pool bar/restaurant was great and convenient as well. All of the rooms seem to have been updated and look great. Our 12th floor north facing room had a very tiny balcony but we had an awesome view of the beach. We spent 2 nights at the W in Fort Lauderdale before checking into the James and both of us LOVE the mattresses used in W hotels! lol The both of us agreeded that the king @ the James was more comfortable - I was actually super impressed and happy! The service has definitely improved from Every aspect compared to my last stay! Hotel valet were great they always got my car fast and asked if I wanted them the top down or up and usually put 2 cold waters in the cup holders. Front desk was quick at check-in and the concierge offered to tell me about events and activities when walking by .. They told us about the free hotel bikes so we went for a ride to lunch which was a lot of fun!l I will def stay here again and recommend the James to anyone looking for a beach front hotel in South Beach.
