Royal Palm South Beach (formerly the James Royal Palm) aims to distinguish itself among the sea of hotels that lines Collins Avenue by offering unparalleled service. Public spaces and guest rooms are elegant without being ostentatious; taking a cue from its oceanfront setting, the color palette leans toward pale greens, creamy whites and warm wooden furnishings. Rooms—which range in size from 275 to 560 square feet—include 42-inch plasma televisions, complimentary WiFi for all, small work/dining alcoves, bathrobes and slippers, and a nightly turndown service. Some rooms even feature floor-to-ceiling windows or balconies overlooking the ocean. In-house dining options include two of the city’s most popular new eateries: the regional Florida Cookery and Byblos, the first U.S. outpost of the Toronto-based Mediterranean restaurant. The Coffee Bar—which uses the hotel’s original green, glass reception desk as its counter—serves up a small menu of organic juices, pastries, coffee and domino sets, should the competitive spirit strike you.
