“Awesome Rooms, Friendly Staff”
Reviewed 18 April 2013

We stayed at the James during our honeymoon and I was very impressed with the room, staff and overall atmosphere. Its very moden, and everything is very pristine feeling. We ended up getting upgraded to a suite on the top floor due to someone booking the last oceanview at the same time we did (we booked online) and the view was awesome. I also loved all the products provided complimentary during our stay. They supplyed full size bottles of harmonic shampoo/conditioner/wash and lotion in the shower and the products were awesome. I wouldnt hesitate to stay there again!

I, my wife, our two young children, our older daughter & her best friend all enjoyed a great week at The St. James Royal Palm for Spring Break! Great staff throughout the hotel, the two bedroom suite w/ adjoining room for me and my wife was a terrific set up, and the location was great!

Props to the staff: AJ, Lou, Joe, Marcel, Ron, Betty, Star, Kitty, Peter, Florian, to name a few. Thanks for making our Spring Break enjoyable!

If there are two areas for improvement they would:

1). The speed at which food is served in the restaurant. The wait staff was always professional & friendly, but it often took quite a while for the food to be served.

2). The bed wasn't the greatest and the bed frame would often squeak when I or my wife moved

I have not frequented Miami too often, but The St. James Royal Palm is a very good hotel. Their staff makes the difference.

We have stayed at 6 different Collins Avenue beachfront hotels in South Beach and this was one of our favorite vacations because of the ammenities at the James Royal Palm. Our lanai room was spacious and well appointed and check-in was a breeze. The afternoon turn-down service is a great touch and the pool service was outstanding. One of the best features is the breakfast buffet in the Florida Cookery. The food was awesome and the selection was unbelievable. Everyone at the James Royal Palm made you feel like you were the most important guest. The only downside was the inconsistency of the hot water in the shower.

We booked the James Royal Palm and weren't sure what to expect. The location is great and the beach was perfect for us. On arrival We were greeted by some of the best hotel staff ever and the holiday just got better. Once checked in we went to the room which was really clean, comfortable and quiet for South Beach. We spent our first day by the pool and were looked after by Raquel who was just fabulous, then we met Joseph Kemp the beach and pool manager who took our stay to another level, Joseph went out of his way to make us welcome and to make our short holiday one of the best ever, what a great guy - I should also mention Martin who looked after us at the beach. Great hotel, made even better by great people - we are definately coming back for a longer stay.

The location is excelent! Very good service. They give you oranges and water in a little basket as a gift in the beach and in the pool.
We had a problem with the girl of the pool, she was too rude and she didn't hold the deck chair for you while you were having breakfast or lunch at the hotel restaurant. Apart from this problem everything was excelent.

Room Tip: Rooms with sea-view are bigger and have a balcony to smoke.

Check in took forever. We were guided to one help desk where we got cut off by other guest. They checked in three parties who walked in front of us and the staff knew we were waiting. The bedding was nice but the door wouldn't shut all the way or open properly when you stuck the key into the electronic lock. It was raining so there were some time spent in the room a little bit more than expected so it was up setting when the tv was based on satellite with no reception. The room service menu was quite limited although had an upscale flair. The bathroom had a nice set up of body wash and hair wash. I called down for the valet to pull the car around and checked out conveniently over the phone, the gentleman said it would be 15 minutes so we waited in the room. As we were leaving we could here water dropping pretty heavily on the other side of the elevator doors. When the elevator opened on our floor it was like the titanic was happening. Water was raining down through the ceiling in all three elevators of course I refused to step inside an electric elevator that was raining inside. As we were walking down 5 flights of stairs I saw some staff in the stairwell where it seemed to be the place where they store their cleaning equipment. Of course I mentioned the rain in the elevator but it didn't seem to shock them what so ever, as if it was just another day. As we started to rush out of the hotel we told the valet we were waiting. After 20mins after speaking with the valet they still did not grab my car.

So many hip and cool hotels have stuck-up service. Not this one. The hotel is beautiful and the people seem like they actually like serving you. They're friendly without being inauthentic. They seem like they like their jobs! The combination of great ambiance and wonderful service makes this a fantastic lux hotel experience in Miami. If you're going to spend the money, spend it here.
Enjoy!

Room Tip: Ask. They want to be accommodating.
