of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
From check in to check out, staying at the Royal Palm was a great experience. After searching area hotels I decided to give this one a try. Location is in a very vibrant part of Miami beach and only walking distance from the famous ocean drive. very well kept and beautiful hotel upon entering the lobby. Upon my arrival I was greeted at the front desk by Anthony who not only made check in quick and easy, but also gave great insight and recommendation on activities and restaurants around the area that would make our trip enjoyable. Our room had a stunning view of the ocean. Included was beach chairs and towels to use on the private beach. The pool area had a bar, and games to enjoy when you wanted to lounge if we were not up to go to the beach. Also upon check out they conveniently stored our bags and let us lounge at the beach even after our check out. Highly recommend will stay again.
It was my 3rd stay there and I love it each time! Friendliest and most helpful staff. Unique modern design in the rooms. The bathroom accessories could use an update, but the bathrooms and rooms are clean and spacious. Gorgeous brand new pool deck and outdoor bar area. Highly recommend this property for business or vacation travel.
"Paying for the location"
The location is what is best about this hotel. Located at 16th and Collins, it's in the center of South Beach, but it's a dated hotel. The pool is a decent size, but not huge. The food is OK and the service is OK--not terribly slow, but not fast either. Housekeeping is good, but not excellent. Very weak wi-fi.
"Incredible ! Will stay again"
This is a fantastic resort. I'm not sure why some of the reviews say otherwise but as an SPG/Marriott member , I don't think any other resort compares. The lobby area is newly renovated and beautiful. The pool area and bar are second to none and the resort has direct beach access. They provide towels, chairs and umbrellas (umbrellas cost additional $) but it's all in all a complete package for a hotel. They have a jacuzzi/hot tub by the pool which makes for a very relaxing time. The beach access connects directly to the jogging track by the beach so very easy to get out for a morning jog. They have a great gym as well. The rooms are phenomenal and well upgraded. As an SPG gold member I got upgraded to an ocean view room on the top floor and it's one of the best hotel rooms I've stayed in. The service is phenomenal with staff remembering your name even though it's a fairly large resort. Olena/Kayla (front desk) and Laris/Elvis/Cree/Alfredo at the pool/bar were all outstanding. Can't think of a single negative point about the Royal Palm. Will definitely stay here again on our next trip to SoBe. Keep up the great work.
"Perfect Winter Weekend "
My husband and I had a fantastic holiday weekend at the Royal Palm. The entire weekend was a positive experience from entry to check out. The lobby was newly renovated and has a lovely Art Deco spirit. The pool and beach front are exactly what we wanted. Staff was incredibly helpful, attentive and friendly. They gave us a late check out so we could enjoy some extra sun before heading back to a NY winter. As noted by others the Starwood bed is always very comfortable and our room quite spacious. We will definitely be returning!
