Well maintained, lovely grounds and beach but let down by poor management, small rooms and no opening windows or balconies anywhere. We asked for a higher room but reception didn’t even attempt to find one. Large windows but they were very dirty so you could hardly see out. Only

We only stayed here 1 night as we flew into FLL on our way to Key West. The hotel and grounds are absolutely beautiful. The staff was very friendly and the location was great if you wanted to view the fun of South Beach. Would stay here again if we ever go back to South

We only stayed one night for a layover on an extended vacation. However, we slept soundly the night we were there. We would definitely return to the Palms. Hope this helps

Hi Karen, We're looking forward to welcoming you to The Palms! When you check in you will be asked for a credit card and a hold will be placed for incidentals (in case you would like to charge anything to your room). Please avoid giving an ATM or Debit Card as there will a hold and you will not be able to use that money until your bank releases the hold which is usually a couple of days after you check out. If you do not charge anything to your room, the hold will be released as soon as you check out. Besides the daily rate, there is a hotel fee of $38 which is due at check in. Please let us know if you have any further questions. See you soon! Alma

"Rooms above floor 7 clear the roof/tree tops looking toward the beach."
"Spend an extra $50 for an ocean view."
"Beware of the surcharges"
"I'd try for a higher floor unit to get away from the noise. However the windows don't open and none of the units have balconies."
"Best ocean views and quieter : 9 to 12th floors."
US$244 - US$572 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
