room sizes

Posted Jan 23, 2015
Pros: the hotel facility was nice and accommodating
Location: good location with walking distance to all action in south beach
The over all was pleasant but I was expecting a bigger room given the description of the double bed room with balcony,Expedia should provide a floor plan showing the room layout because there is not enough room to move around and basically the description was misleading.

Great beach access

Posted Jan 20, 2015
Great experience except for the additional charges that are tacked on to everything and are a bit steep. For example, $38 for parking per day!

Nice hotel close to the action.

Posted Jan 12, 2015
Pros: 1. The location is perfect. On the beach, equally close to Ocean Drive and Lincoln Rd Mall. 2. People being civilized.. 3. Clean.
Cons: 1. WiFi speed is extremely slow and weak - needs a major upgrade. 2. TV signal is unstable. Needs an upgrade. 3. Eliminate the vibration noise.
Location: 2 minutes walk to Ocean Drive and Lincoln Dr Mall. Restaurants, walk along the boardwalk, park or street. Checkout the cars and people.
A week of wonderful time spent relaxing, eating, walking and tanning.

Overall a good hotel, just has a few weird quirks, like really crappy 'all natural ingredients soap that does not clean' but most of the issues were just small details.

Very nice hotel close to the beach

Posted Jan 7, 2015
We had a very pleasant experience at The James Royal Palm. The facility was clean. It is close to the beach and within walking distance to restaurants and shops. The staff is very friendly. The food was also good at the hotel restaurant. We enjoyed the two swimming pools and hot tub.

Great holiday warm weather getaway

Posted Jan 2, 2015
Pros: The recent renovations have made the hotel comfortable, sophisticated and full of current technology features that made the stay fun.
Cons: The only downside was that the pool had no sun after 1:30pm this time of year b/c the angle of the sun is so low now.
We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay over the holiday. Having stayed at South Beach many times before, I really liked the central location of the James/Royal Palm. Not only the convenience to the beach and boardwalk, but also the shopping at the Lincoln Rd. mall and the fun of Ocean Ave and visiting all of the bars at the other great hotels on Collins Ave.

Hotel in posizione ottimale

Posted Dec 29, 2014
Pros: La posizione strategica e tranquilla.
Location: A piedi, veramente in pochi passi, si possono raggiungere tutti e 3 i punti della vita notturna di Miami Beach.
Hotel definibile ottimo in rapporto al prezzo pagato, posizione ideale veramente due passi da Ocean Drive, due passi da Lincoln Road e due passi da Espanola av. ma totalmente tranquillo la notte. Personale gentile e disponibilissimo, al ricevimento forniscono tutte le informazioni sui servizi e su cosa è compreso. Il primo giorno in spiaggia veniamo informati che le sdraio sono incluse mentre per l'ombrellone c'è un supplemento di 19 dollari, al momento pensavo ad una sorpresa negativa che poi non si è rivelata tale perché la tariffa di 21 dollari/d per servizi hotel da pagare in loco non è stata applicata e mi sono stati addebitati solo due giorni di ombrellone. Abbiamo soggiornato 3 notti.

Great!

Posted Dec 25, 2014
Pros: The people who work there.
The people who work there couldn't be anymore nice, thoughtful and helpful. The room was clean and had a nice bed. Good pool and nice spot on the beach. One downside is that this week there were a lot of kids under 10 or so. Not sure if that's typical or not.
