Lovely hotel close to the beach

Pros: The room was spacious and clean. We were happy with the overall welcoming of the staff.
Cons: It was odd that the bar was close to the main entrance and it is odd to walk past people when returning to the hotel in the evening.
Location: It was very handy for restaurants, cafes and the beach
The hotel was an ideal location for South Beach. We were upgraded to an ocean view and it was lovely to open the curtains in the morning to see the sun rise. The staff could not do enough for us and were very helpful. It was our wedding anniversary during our stay and we received wine, fruit and chocolates.

Great Location

Pros: Mariah on front Desk so helpful, location execellent,
Cons: Once refurbishment complete will be great, Wifi Slow probably just needs booster around the hotel.
Location: Great location loads to Ido in Miami tours Art Deco district gator park
Hotel is in a great location on South Beach Booked to stay 3 days before and 3 days after my cruise on check in room I book was not available but was upgraded to an ocean front room. Hotel was going through refurbishment and was assure it would be completed before my stay ( yes the hurricane may had some affect but as work was due to be finished by end of Sept 2016 and we stayed 20 Oct 2016. Hotel staff tried to blame all on hurricane) Spoke with Mariah she was very helpful and apologised and did everything to resolve our issues if all the front desk staff was as helpful rather than offering eccuses. Overall was happy with service experience was not as good as 2014 but as stated earlier in post Mariah was a star.

Royal Palm

I have stayed at various hotels in Miami in the last seven years but this was far and away the best. I had one of the new rooms in the refurbished Shorecrest Tower. Room was superb, massive bed, huge flat screen TV, great bathroom with excellent shower and very clean. Despite it being the height of Spring Break coupled with the WMC there was hardly any sleep disruption. There was some noise from the room next door but small price to pay for such a fantastic hotel. Location is perfect right in the heart of Collins Avenue which means everything you need on South Beach is a couple of minutes walk away. Hotel pool area is very nice and beach is only a minute away. Staff were very friendly and helpful and I will definitely stay here again .

Great location

Good central location close to main shopping area and good clubs. Nice hotel but very thin walls was the only downfall. Helpful and pleasant staff.

Very Enjoyable Stay

Due to a convention staying at the Royal Palm, we were allocated a suite in the Shorecrest Tower at no extra cost. It had a large lounge and a comfortable KS bed in a spacious bedroom. It was well decorated and carpeted, and all the suite needed was a fridge. Staff very helpful. Swimming pool area excellent, and a well equipped outside fitness facility. The hotel just requires a good bar and restaurant to finish it off, ideally situated as it is near/between Ocean Drive and Lincoln Road Mall. We will definitely be back next year in Nov.

Gute Lage

Das Hotel ist an einer guten Lage. 2 Liegestühle am Strand (Sonnenschirm kostet extra 19 Dollar) und Badetücher (teils schmuddelig und zerrissen) vor Ort gratis. WLAN ok. Zimmergrösse ok, jedoch Sauberkeit lässt zu wünschen. Personal grösstenteils arrogant (normal in den USA). Preise fürs Essen überrissen!!! Mit Taxen zu überrissen. Und dann ist noch das Essen ziemlich schlecht - leider. Und dann noch horrente Resorttaxen! Alles in einem: wem nur die gute Lage wichtig ist, und auf den Rest keinen grossen Wert legt, für den ist das Hotel ideal.

Preis-Leistung ungenügend, Anlage älter

Auf unserem bisherigen Floridatrip logierten wir in mehrere Hotels und fanden dieses Hotel als grösste Enttäuschung. Preis-Leistung stimmt überhaupt nicht. Der Preis beinhaltet die Strandlage am Miami Beach, aber das war es auch schon. Sonnenschirm am Strand 20$ am Tag, verzichten kann man bei Sonnenschein kaum. Liegen und Tücher sind gratis. Pool viel zu warm, keine Abkühlung. Frischwasser wie in anderen Hotelpools fehlt leider. Im Poolbereich sind keine mitgebrachten Snacks oder Wasser erlaubt, man ist auf die teure Bar angewiesen. Zimmer nicht sehr sauber, viele Flecken an Wänden und Möbel die man mit einem eifachen Wisch hätte entfernen können, Badewanne unsauber und verschmiert mit Seife. Die ganze Anlage ist älter und nicht in sehr gutem Zustand. Für den Preis hätten wir mehr erwartet. Viele unserer einfacheren Hotels wie Quality Inn oder Best Western waren besser gepflegt, sauberer und komfortabler. Wir empfehlen das Hotel nicht, logiert besser günstiger und nehmt den Weg zum Strand auf euch zu Fuss oder Taxi (Kurzstrecke sehr günstig).

Lorelai, vielen Dank für Ihr Feedback. Ich entschuldige mich, dass Sie Ihren Besuch nicht genossen haben. Wir machen normalerweise einen sehr guten Job, der die Erwartungen unserer Gäste übertrifft. Offensichtlich waren wir nicht in der Lage, Ihre Bedürfnisse zu erfüllen, und das tut uns allen leid. Sauberkeit ist eine grundlegende Erwartung eines Hotelgastes, und wir arbeiten sehr hart daran, diese Erwartungen zu erfüllen. Ich hoffe, Sie haben angerufen und uns erlaubt, Probleme in Ihrem Gästezimmer zu beheben. Aufrichtige Entschuldigung, Patrick

Service catastrophique!

- chambre pas faite à 17h00 - chambre mal nettoyée. Juste les linges sont remplacés. Mais malheureusement chaque jour il manquait quelque chose. - aucune douche dans l hôtel en cas de late check-out. Nous avons dû payer une nuit supplémentaire entière pour pouvoir rester 3heures de plus dans la chambre. - le beach club est sympa mais quand vous arrivez le matin à 0930 les linges ne sont pas disponibles. Sincèrement déçu vu le prix. L'emplacement est top. Cet hôtel est malheureusement une cash machine
