Anniversary Getaway, Great Stay!

We love our room, the pool and the beach right next to the hotel! The staff is so friendly and helpful. The room was clean. We one time returned to the room while they were cleaning. The cleaning lady apologized, finished what she was working on and stepped out of the room. We thought she was done, since the bed was made and the bathroom was pretty clean. However, we noticed that they came back after we finished dinner. She made the bed again and set it up ready for us to go to bed with the decorating pillow and stuff removed (Also some Godiva chocolate on bed). That was very nice and sweet! The hotel environment was nice. One negative thing is that the hotels on 2 sides was under construction, and you can hear it slightly during day time. But this makes the beach more private, since not many tourist staying in the area. The parking is nothing fun. You can pay $35 for overnight valet parking, but we chose to find street parking close-by, since you only need to feed the meter 8am-6pm, 3 hours max total. What we did was paid till 6pm and went back after 6pm to advance purchase the parking ticket for 8am-11am next day. It's only $1/ hour, which is $3 overnight! Again, since the hotels around are under construction, not too many people fight for the parking when we went there. If during peak season, I doubt that you can easily find parking.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a local family owned restaurant called "Tropical Beach Café" in walking distance. The dinner was pretty good with each entrée less than $10. The waitress may not speak fluent English, but they are pretty friendly. The "Shrimp in garlic sauce" was good to go with rice. The "Pork Chunks" was huge in portion, taste decent, but it's pretty dry. Paying little and got a full stomach, what else to asked for?

As expected

I have high expectations for hotel rooms and The Palms & Spa hotel met my expectations. The room had beautiful view on the beach and ocean, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom looked modern. The hotel offers only valet parking and its restaurant is bit pricey, so be prepared to pay extra.

great service at the Palms

We got to the Palms later than expected due to traffic, but upon arrival were welcomed at the entrance, where a valet took our car for safekeeping. The hotel lobby is a beautiful example of art deco on Miami Beach. We'd barely entered our room when a member of the housekeeping staff knocked and asked if we needed towels, or chocolate. The garden behind the hotel is a horticultural oasis, with a tiki bar, and large pool. Of course, there is also a private entrance to the boardwalk and beach. Francisco, the bartender at the tiki bar, was very helpful, and made a great mojito. There is construction going on in the area, which is no reflection on the hotel. We will absolutely return.

Exceptional Staff and Price Value

I just stayed at this hotel with my wife for 5 days. The room was really nice and would be perfect except that there was no porch which is a bit annoying if you are a smoker like me. Other than that, the hotel was excellent. They have in the back a gorgeous garden with amazing plants and trees along with water falls and even 2 exotic parrots that talk. The pool was also really nice and very clean. The hotel has direct access to the beach and provide you with high quality comfortable beach chairs that we put to good use.The hotel staff were very impressive. Extremely nice and addressed all requests promptly and very courteously. If you want a very clean, nice, affordable hotel in Miami Beach, this is the place you should go to.

Best Miami getaway

This was my first time in Miami and I was absolutely blown away by The Palms Hotel and Spa. The location was perfect...close to the action yet far enough to feel like you were in your own little haven . The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I will definitely be back and I would recommend this place to anyone who desires some R&R in the heart of Miami's beautiful and lively South Beach. This was truly an unforgettable vacation for me and my husband. We both have travelled to many large cities nationwide and have stayed at many lovely hotels, but this one ranks high compared to many others. I recommend taking advantage of some of their spa services....best massage EVER! The grounds are impeccably manicured and you have access to their private beach with lounge chairs, umbrellas, and full service dining and drinks. What else could one ask for?!?!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Make sure you make the drive to the Monkey Jungle.... It's a little ways away, but if you rent a car it is 100% worth it. We also drove down through the Keys to see the sunset in Key West. If you don't mind a day trip, this is a must do! The drive was gorgeous and the sunset was breathtaking.

Great Stay! Felt Pampered. Excellent Service and Cleanliness

My boyfriend and I (I'm 33, he's 44# went for a long weekend getaway, Friday through Monday. We are both very social and like to have fun, but were also looking to relax. The hotel has a tropical oasis theme and the rooms are modern and very clean. We had a king size bed that was extremely comfortable. There were two separate bathrooms in our room--one with a toilet and sink and the other with a sink and stand up shower. The complimentary bath products were Aveda brand, good stuff. My only complaint #minor) was lack of counter space and space to get dressed/ready in the bathrooms. The staff was extremely attentive and the rooms and hotel were very clean. It felt more like a resort than a typical Miami hotel...but the location is only a 5-10 minute cab ride to the heart of South Beach. The food was great and we had a few lunches poolside. Drinks are always expensive in Miami, but we were pleasantly surprised to pay around $5-$6 for beers. I had mojitos most of the time and they were fresh and delicious. The hotel is right on the beach so you can walk out and the staff will make sure you have a beach chair and towel. There is a flag near the beach chair that you can stand up if you would like something to eat or drink and the staff will come right over to you on the beach. I would recommend this hotel for all age groups. Couples looking for a romantic getaway, friends looking for a fun weekend and families young and old. There were children in the pool but nothing bothersome. This hotel will provide you with the feeling of a resort with quick access to the action and party area a few minutes away in South Beach. FYI there is a $14/day service fee that you will be billed for at the end. This includes the beach towels and beach chairs. I highly recommend The Palms!

Wonderful

The hotel was immaculate and very accommodating. The view from our room was wonderful along with the comfortable bed and plush linens. The restaurant is a little on the pricey side but you get a lot of food so overall well worth it.

It's a trek to shopping but a short cab ride of about $10 but the shops are the same as most places which was a disappointment to me.
