This was my second stay - so it is a good place...

I really like this hotel. The rooms are nice (docked the room comfort rating only because the side chairs are rigid - like most hotels). Bed was comfy and the place is clean. The back yard is great because you are on the fringe of a city but you can forget that fact due to the palm trees, grass and chaise lounges on the pool deck or the sandy mock beach. if you are a reader, bring a good book and grab a chair by the covered back porch. Last year I arrived before check in and spent the afternoon lounging there catching up on e-mail - very quiet. Both years there has been a wedding there on Saturday. Not a huge deal. The main part of South Beach is a mile south and I usually walked it in the AM and PM for exercise/meals. A Citibike station is within yards of the front door. I wasn't a fan of the in house restaurant menu but what I did get I liked (burger, fish tacos, breakfast buffet). There are more interesting places to eat IMHO. If I go back to South Beach and don't stay here it will be to try something different and be closer to the action in the art deco area. I was tempted on this trip to go to a more expensive resort but if you plan on leaving the room for most of the day, the Palms is a good balance of quality and value.
