Fodor's Review

The James Royal Palm is a daily celebration of art deco, Art Basel, modernity, and design detail that also dutifully embodies the mantra of the James brand: "luxury liberated." Laura Rottet of Rottet Studios was charged with reinventing South Beach's original 1939 Royal Palm and Shorecrest buildings alongside the Royal Palm's younger annexes to create a seamless design masterpiece; and forty-two-million dollars later, the results are nothing short of spectacular. Rooms assume a classic South Beach identity with blends of whites and pops of tropical colors. Double-doored minibars open a world of local Florida products, while colossal, wood-framed mirrors function as sliding doors for the oversized bathrooms. Beyond design brilliance, The James Royal Palm is an endless induglence of the best of South Beach, including an impressive Renew spa, plenty of beachside and poolside bliss, excellent eating at its in-house restaurant Florida Cookery, and fabulous people-watching. The hotel's location at 15th and Collins places the James in the heart of the South Beach action.
