A 1939 South Beach stunner that recently reopened after a massive 21st century renovation, The James Royal Palm has, what must be, the largest family-sized suites in the area, the Lil' James kids' club, and even a sun concierge on hand.
Another Art Deco gem on Miami’s glistening South Beach, The James Royal Palm is an immaculate 1939 oceanfront property that recently reopened after a mega 21st century renovation. The results are astonishing: rooms feel like homes-from-home with seaside aqua and taupe colourways throughout, the hotel boasts a gallery-sized art collection and there is even a “sun concierge” on hand to retrieve items from your room and remind you to turn over so you get the most even, all-over tan possible. Talk about first class service…..
For You -
An oceanfront gym, a marvelous spa complete with a nutritionist, two swimming pools, a plunge pool and direct beach access from the property make for a seriously rejuvenating stay, both inside and out. The restaurants appeal to foodies every time: Florida Cookery offers local produce cooked with the sophistication one expects in Miami, while CATCH (which can also be found in New York City’s Meatpacking District) serves, unsurprisingly, very fresh local fish dishes.
For Them +
There are two bedroom suites that can be transformed into three bedrooms for larger families which, given the South Beach location, is a rarity. Lil’ James has been created with young guests in mind and offers both indoor and outdoor play areas that were designed in conjunction with the Miami Children’s Museum. Outdoor day excursions are arranged if children are itching for a change of scenery and the Lil’ James beach area offers a sandcastle building section. Milk and cookies are served as a turndown service and tiny tots can use the bike seats, helmets, baby baths, children’s movies and kids’ games that are available (both the traditional and electronic kind, of course).
