Great location, friendly and helpful staff, spacious and clean room, very nice facilities (indoors and outdoors), renovation of reception area a major improvement.
I loved the hotel was right by the beach The amenities including the spa, banana boat, beach chairs and excellent customer service
Location Under construction; noisy
The hotel was beautiful ocean front view balcony view.. Very close to ocean drive an Lincoln mall rd. We really didn't need a car.. O yeah right on the Beach.. They have beautiful outside water plaza where I got on my need an she said yesss ATTN we were notified before our stay way before our stay there would be construction but how would I know I'd get the room right next to all the banging and beating
Hotel is good but pricey for its accommodation .building is little old . Beach is too far from hotel. Bathroom is small for the price paid for room
Location, layout Drilling & hammers right by my room at 7a. I can understand 10a. For those from Ca this means it started at 4a Partying, LOUD rap music , yelling from balcony on my floor. I complained and NOTHING was done
Pool area was beautiful, and open 24 hours! Love how the hotel was right next to the beach. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Price of food and drinks at the pool / beach was expensive, but it was what I expected when booking the hotel. Beach chairs were included in the resort fee, which was nice, but the fee didn't include a beach umbrella with the chairs...the umbrella was an extra $25 for the day (and we absolutely needed the umbrella because it was so hot outside).
the hotel amenities were fine, meals were good not exceptional. pool is nice as is beach access. i don't recommend for a vacation setting. hotel is very large, busy - not relaxing for a couple. Lacked the intimacy and romantic touches of other hotels catering to vacationers vs. business.
The view from the room The Roach that was crawling around the room. Took forever for housekeeping to respond to compliant I had to call the Loews 1-800 number to get service after calling front desk
I had a very pleasant stay, the staff was amazing. Nothing
It's a nice hotel, nice location, clean, nice staff, nice beachfront We stayed there for a week and we didn't like: - Noisy, music everywhere, very loud, not smooth nor relaxing - noisy guests that staff did not stop, in my case, people came to the lounge with their own speakers - noisy rooms, better get out early, before 9 am or housekeepers will let you know you are lazy - fees for everything, it's ok to pay for additionals, but resort fee is not worth it (and it's a hidden cost), valet excessive, fees for receiving packages is expensive. I would recommend to bundle better tariffs and consider flat fees or caped fees for those who stay several days. After the second day, we ended trying to avoid every reason to stay in the hotel during the day. In particular, we avoided the pool, only one time tried to spend the morning there but could not resist the music of the hotel and the personal music of some guests.
No music on pool area
The hotel had direct beach access, and close to great outdoor shopping, and was a very good value for the money. The staff was friendly and attentive It seemed a little run down, but that was in character for a hotel that was as old as this.
Location, beach access Poor hotel management, and poor service when allocating rooms and requesting guests to change rooms. They tried to downgrade us on the first night (the room was already paid for), and also offered us to sleep at an other hotel on the first night because our room was not available. Not accessible. Swimming pool area: Bathroom at the pool could be the bathroom of a 2 star hotel, and there are no indoor shower.
Didn't replace toiletries in the bathroom. Sheets were very rough.
I liked the hotel room layout because it was new and fresh.
My wife and I booked this hotel through Kayak's partner Getaroom in late October. The South Beach hotels were generally booked for New Years Eve, so we were happy to have a confirmed reservation. When we arrived at the hotel in New Years Eve, we were told by the front desk staff member that it reservation didn't exist. We looked up or confirmation and confirmed that we had prepaid via credit card. The hotel staff did they could not honor our reservation as they had no rooms available and they take no responsibility for mistakes made by third party booking agencies. They recommended we try elsewhere, so my wife called other hotels and I ran around trying to find a room. We called Getaroom three times and we put in endless hold each time as they struggled with the same problem. They finally found the glitch which turned out to be a misspelling of our last name as "Wppd" instead of "Wood." No apology from the hotel or Getaroom for two hours of frantic searching for another hotel. The hotel itself was nice but lacking in staffing and amenities. Cleanliness was OK. The pool and hot tub were overrun by kids and postadolecents. Location was amazing and we were able to walk to New Years Eve celebrations in South Beach.
The hotel was in a great location with great views. The hotel will nickel and dime you for many different resort fees.
all especially in the interior areas the pool area was dirty all time
Cheap renovations with premium cost of accommodation. Parking cost is unreasonable. Our first room had not been cleaned after the previous guests. We were switched to a worse/smaller room. There was no acoustic privacy.
I am a former Miami citizen and so I am picky and savvy. The Royal Palm is simply beautiful. The furniture, flooring, light fixtures, landscaping, are well designed and maintained. My room was clean, chic, had an amazing view. Bathroom was modern and lovely. Bed and sheets were comfortable. Your stay includes beach chairs and towels and service (cocktails and food) at your chair. I felt like a queen and was treated exceptionally well by the staff at the beach. I accidentally left my grandmother's ring in my room after checkout and the bellhop mobilized the housekeeping staff to look for and find it. I am so grateful! And whoever is running this place is doing all the important things right. I am a frequent traveler and will DEFINITELY be returning to the Royal Palm Resort. Oh, and you can't beat the location... I requested a late checkout, as I was unsure when I would be done with my meetings, and the gentleman at the front desk smirked and laughed at my request, which I did not appreciate. I do not fault the Royal Palm for this I still feel, despite this individual, I had an amazing experience and I will definitely return.
It's right on the beach! Housekeeping staff took my iPhone 6 charger and took the bottles of alcohol that I bought and placed in the fridge. They also took my razors. Also noticed that while they are on the floors cleaning they keep all of the doors open even if they have other people's property in them which makes it really easy for someone else to go in to your room and take your stuff.
Management handled room complication well Interesting modern design in room Great beachfront view and access Sea salt hand scrub in the bathroom was amazing Great location and ambiance Our room was not clean and was in complete shambles when they sent us up there at check-in. (Imagine walking into a room that looks like a rock band had just partied there. We were speechless.) The Bellhop did not give us a claim tag for our luggage we dropped off so we had to go identify it in the storage room and the bellhop had the nerve to ask for a tip after. There was a significant amount of blood on the walls between the doors of our room and the room next door (how can you miss that? who is looking over this place??)
Hotel facilities were nice and it was right near the beach. Desk staff was a little condescending and not very friendly.
Everything Pool closed at 9
Decor and bed So noisy ...thin paper walls and doors.. No sleep at all. They also gave me wrong information for parking
The best hotel a block from the beach with great accommodations and value. The elevator was extremely slow
there was an incredible rooftop pool party. Nunlike I've ever seen before. DJ's best in the world. The only thing that I didn't like. Was that I had to leave!
Great location, very comfortable stay. Everything was within walking distance -- food, shops, and of course the beach. Staff was super nice and helpful. Worth the $!
It was literally a dream, best hotel experience yet! Nothing! I wish I could've stayed longer
Location is great! Price was fair. Rooms are small and walls are thin. Room service also lacks a bit.
the hotel is really nice and staff work hard to make your stay awesome The elevator on my floor was in and out of service about three or four times during the three day stay , it just made it difficult to get to and from the rooftop pool ... And the room service food portions are small based on the amount charged, and the person taking the order seemed to have a bit of a attitude one night
great location. rooftop pool is great. delux room?! not so sure we got one. f
Great location to get straight to the beach. Walking distance to Lincoln Rd, Washington Ave and Ocean Dr!
Great hotel to spend some days to relax and be quiet. We came just one day after a 1-week trip to ny and it was great to rest a little. Baby friendly also. Great sunsets at the pool.
The pool area was fantastic. Upgraded us to a suite!
Booked a Bayview Studio, for a family of four (2 kids). Excellent views to downtown Miami and the Bay. Very spacious room, with interesting decor. Excellent restaurant, fusion of of Cuban with Asiatic cuisine. Very good pool area, too (swimming pool heated). Very friendly personnel in the restaurant and the reception, as well as the housekeeping staff. Ideal place to get the relaxing and glamorous atmosphere of the city. The room's door was poorly isolated, therefore there were some noises coming from the corridor (we stayed at the hotel at a weekend with parties organized each evening/night). Parking is exclusively valet (charging an quite high daily rate), with little choices for alternative parking around. The minibar is a kind of a mini-in-room-shop (selling T-shirts, souvenirs, toiletry, etc.). No free WiFi.
Good quality hotel, with great fusion restaurant Location from south beach
Very nice people. Courteous service. Jasmine was great serving our brunch.
Wonderful posh luxurious hotel in south beach Miami. lovely pool with around the clock bar service. welcoming staff ,everything is ready for you to enjoy your stay. we left few things during a quick check out ,they sent them back to us ASAP. 1- painfully there is not even a penny complementary stuff you need to pay for even a glass of water!2- No information regarding the inside USA calls (they call it long distance calls and the price kills! even if you call someone in next door state)
Stylish, nice sunset panaroma Very arrogant and not really competent staff; thanks for getting the 3th (lowest!) floor out of 17 floors even after asking especially for a high floor room in the reservation ("no chance, but the tower suit is still available with a little rate change from 445,- to 3.500,-"); everything in the hotel is completely overpriced: restaurant, poolbar, parking, even the internet has to be paid (ridiculous!) and so on...
We loved the location, the view from the pool area - sunsets were amazing. Loved the unusual, different decor of the hotel; staff was very friendly. Check in was a big disorganized but still ok. Biggest complaint was the high price of the room that included basically just the room. Additional $40/night for parking; additional 'resort fee' which we have yet to figure out what that covered as the only 'resort feature' was the pool and most hotels include that in their overall room fee. We had a king suite and it had a full kitchen; however, you had to RENT dishes and utensils and even dish towels. That is unheard of in my opinion. Any hotel I have ever stayed in that provided a kitchen also provided basic plates/utensils/dish towels. LOVELY hotel but overpriced for sure.
Room was very large - that is very hard to come by in Miami Beach! Comfortable bed and nice bathroom. No Staff by the pool had to run around to find towels. Called 3 times to get sheets changed, the final time I called they said the cleaning people had left ... so that was annoying.
Very friendly staff, beautiful pool. Our first room was very dirty and second room (which was an upgrade) was still not great. Couches were stained, dirty sheets, bathtub and bathrobes. pool bar is expensive.
design The hotel is far from beach, very laud tonight from the bar and pool.
Good staff, excellent location, nice rooms, free bikes, steam room $25 resort fee. Breakfast was ok but not great.
Hotel Victor is in prime location mid beach, great new Mgt! Possible price barrier...
The pool was great and the beach was really close to the hotel and the food was excellent but expensive overal rating good Unexpected bill when checking out not fare !!! They said free wifi but I pay to used it at the end
The location is great especially because no buildings across the street, just beach access.
Room was setup well. TV install on wall was slick & well-done. Free breakfast each morning was convenient and saved us money (croissants, muffins & high-class coffee). Pool & view were unbeatable. Staff was very polite and always available. Best place I've stayed in in South Beach. Three of the lights in the room did not work.
The Hotel Victor is located right in the middle of fun Biking, Bikinis, boozing and dancing till dawn but and what a big butt South Beach has, bring your money, valet $40 a night drinks there magic number is $20 a drink and 20% added to everything courtesy of the people that don't know how to tip... So bad service is the norm because they get paid ether way. But no were on Earth will see the eclectic mix of people just wanting to have a good time, then in South Beach Nothing Works when you pay $300 a night and cant take a shower because the shower is plugged FAIL. Or go to have a soak in the Roman tub until you turn it on and it spits nasty bits of the last people that used it out FAIL Or the Ac vents are so plugged that it took 2 maintenance people 2 days to get it right FAIL. And the worst part is they have your money because you used a new service and paid up front wont do that again FAIL FAIL FAIL. Spent $1000 dollars in 2 day on room and did not get to enjoy it Priceless NOT!!!
Location was great! Breakfast was okay. Ocean 10, great Resturant service, connected to hotel. We tried getting beach towels twice, they were out. Didn't have more than one bath towel in the room, needed more before shower. They never came. 2 different service fees $22/day which really is $44/day.
Location and staff. Place is dirty. Stayed there in the past around 2 years ago and had a great experience. Place Has not been kept up. Rugs dirty, bathroom wall stained with something I would rather not mention. When checked in was told we got upgraded to Penthouse at no charge. Penthouse was old, dirty, filthy rugs with hot tub that did not work. Really??? Not an upgrade but a way to get someone in that room no one else would take. Declined upgrade and demanded the room we booked. Great location and staff but dirty. Also toiletries not replaced daily. Bring your own supplies
In the middle of south beach. Great service, front desk was very helpful. Clean comfortable rooms. Not for older couples or families, this does not include me but it is a forewarning. I didn't know gratuity would be added automatically until I arrived at my first day. But I was advised on the first day. The cleaning ladies were on time and did a great job, so gratuity was worth it.
Location was great and I was impressed with the renovations. Very nicely done. I could hear people walking above me. Their footsteps caused light fixture on my ceiling to rattle and both sounds were a bit annoying late at night. Breakfast was pretty bad. Everything was cold, in using the eggs, sausage and French toast. Also the total bill is a little more than what I thought I paid. The resort fee is included in the initial bill, without tax. The resort fee,with taxes, is actually charged at check out, which made my total about $8 more than expected.
The only thing I liked about this hotel was the location. It's across the street from the beach. On Kayak this looks like a beautiful luxury hotel, but quickly upon arriving you realize it only looks like that from a distance and they have an amazing photographer for their site photos. Kayak was great but Breakwater is a sleezy lemon. Upon our arrival at 1 am Saturday we were tired and eager to get to our room. The receptionist strongly persuaded us to upgrade to a much more expensive room for $180 + tax so it would be quiet. He then proceeded to charge my card but forgot the tax so asked me to give him my credit card again so he could charge the sales tax. He also informed us upon arrival there is a $22/day resort fee but this was not stated anywhere on Kayak. Also as we were dealing with check in another guest came up to the desk and asked for ear plugs because the club music outside the hotel was too loud. And YES it was VERY LOUD. We were in a room that was pretty quiet for what it was but on Sunday night, by boyfriend WHO IS A DJ wasn't even able to fall asleep until 4 am because it was so loud! The room itself had a nice view but it had a lot of issues from lazy upkeep. The bed sheets had stains on them, the bench at the foot of the bed had weird sticky dirt marks from removed tape stains, the bathroom tub was worn down cracked and stained (didn't use it unfortunately because it looked so gross), and the shower floor was cracked. Using the TV was also a mess. The remote didn't work and no channel guide. We tried multiple times to dial the front desk from the hotel phone to have these addressed but the line would disconnect every time we hit the front desk or 0 button. Not sure if they don't want to hear from you, the line is inundated with calls, or something was wrong with the phone. The staff has not been trained to be friendly and welcoming to their guests. They view us as a bother and just want a fast interaction so they can quickly move on to the next opportunity to make money. The waiters/waitresses at the front of the hotel in the morning were more concerned with snagging passersby (as every other restaurant on that street) for business than greeting their current guests eating breakfast. I said good morning to a few of them and received very cold and snobby responses. They didn't make eye contact with me and didn't offer any interaction. So rude! One day I was using a computer in the lobby and a manager was severely scolding a server right there in the lobby for doing something that wasn't appropriate. She was very nasty and mean to him, and the one way scolding went on for literally 10 minutes. It was so unpleasant and uncomfortable to witness that as a guest. The employees should have a private area they use for this kind of thing, not out in the public lobby! This hotel is appropriate for frat boys/college aged kids that want to party hard, trash rooms, and recover on the beach afterwards without making much effort in getting there. We were paying over $300/night for this room and it's evident the Breakwater heavily relies on their location to make visitors happy and turn over business quickly, but does not put in any other effort. Definitely won't be staying here again. :(
the room was fairly clean and the cleaning crew was helpful. The front desk staff was rude and gave us attitude when we complained. When my husband called at 1am in the morning to say the music is so loud that our floors are vibrating, all the receptionist offered was ear plugs... Seriously. The pictures online are really updated because the lobby and the pool area were really old and dirty. The roof deck was not even open, the only place to hangout was pretty much the restaurant which was super expensive. Definitely not staying here EVER AGAIN.
i loved the location it was in the heart of south beach, also loved the pool area and how lively the hotel was. i didnt care for how pricey everything was
Beliggenheten var perfekt. Eneste å utsette på hotellet er støynivået men dette var vi klar over på forhånd da hotellet ligger i Espanola Way. Internett tilgang på rommet
Bra beliggenhet. Derfor dyrt i forhold til hva man fikk. Kun TV og seng ingen stoler. Toalett og dusj med håndklær.Svært spartansk. Ingen frokost.Ikke en kaffe engang. Sett inn et par stoler på hvert rom....Gardiner på rommene.
God service av personalet Var betydelig mer spartansk enn ventet - og doen var til tider ikke brukbar vil vurdere hvem vi skulle anbefale dette til
Location was good as it's close to everything South Beach has to offer but that's about it. The hotel rooms are extremely small and cramped and they tried too hard to make it look trendy and there is no full wall or glass between the room and the bathroom so not only can you see the person in the bathroom using the toilet but you can also hear every air biscuit they let out, every wipe and smell it. I mean cmon, first you have tiny rooms that I would expect in a 3 star hotel in NYC but how can you put people in those tiny rooms and leave a completely open bathroom with no walls or privacy... smh. The service was also rough, I think the girl who checked us in said her computer crashed 4 times and we had to spend about 25 minutes checking in which should have taken about 5 minutes. The checking stations had older laptops, they got this whole hotel completely wrong and I would never go back.
Staff at check in didn't explain things about any features, what was included, or about charges to card
Great location Very convenient Quiet Great staff The coffee maker wasn't convenient to an electric outlet
Location, cleanliness, interior design, customer service and price.
For the price I paid this was the best value hotel I have ever stayed in. Staff was fully flexible and attentive to my needs and knew the excellent surroundings of the hotel. You could actually have a meaningful conversation with the dude caring your luggage. Room was big and with many good practical and esthetic genius details. On a hotel this class you will normally have a complementary bottle of water. But beside this I can't put one single finger...
Great location, lovely hotel especially the rooftop pool. Cocktail bar and catering brilliant. Staff very friendly and helpful.
Service, comfort, style, pool, location, this place was top notch in every way.
could not fault the house keeping, very clean. Excellent location and friendly staff. the bar downstairs did not have a great atmosphere. (the weather for us was not warm enough to be at the bar on the roof top- which is fab), but the downstairs bar lacked appeal.
Everything. Super hotel with quality staff. The rooftop pool and bar were excellent, the room was superb and our whole experience something to remember.
The staff was amazing. The only thing that bothered me was the internet was not working.
the rooftop pool, the view from the pool,the additional beach beds and towels only breakfast a la carte
Location, Pool and the enviroment. The walls are too thin you should stay on the third floor
Location is central to everything in South Beach. The staff is very helpful and goes out of their way to make sure guest have an enjoyable stay. The room was very clean and the cleaning staff did a great job keeping the room clean even sweeping the sand from the beach off the floor. The walls are paper thin and you can hear guest in other rooms all around. Guests in the halls can get noisy and those sounds come through pretty clearly.
Walkable to restaurants, clubs or the beach.
Room design Swimming pool
Lovely accommodations, excellent customer service, beach, shopping, restaurants, good recommendations for dining Crazy spring break activity- couldn't relax and enjoy a glass of wine at cafe due to nightlife, traffic was a bear when I arrived but handled well by concierge and valet
Svært god beliggenhet, ett kvartal fra South Beach. Svært tungvint løsning når du kommer med bil. Mangel på parkeringsplasser gjør det nødvendig å benytte "Valet Parking" der du må beregne 20-45 min i venting på å få bilen tilbake når du trenger den.
Absolutt ingen ting Alt!!! Dårlig service, sure mennesker. Stryk det fra booking alternativene deres!!
Personalet var meget hjelpsomme og hyggelige.
Very clean, friendly staff, great food and comfortable accommodations. All around a great experience. Pool was small but nice
We just stayed overnight, and arrived very late. Front lobby was open late (great!) and check-in easy. Valet accessible right in front (great!) Clean, fluffy linens (great!) Hotel not noisy (great!). Staff very helpful (great!) And, you're right on South Beach (great!). Didn't get to the pool, but it looked nice from the window in the dark (oh, well). Old elevator is cool, but some instructions for those of us not born in 1855 always appreciated. Valet parking $35 a day, but hey, it's Miami, and we didn't helicopter in. Typical narrow room/layout for the 1920's. They do a good job with space saving, though. Doesn't bother me, but might bother some. Also, the hotel front is easy to miss at midnight. We drove right by it, and we weren't inebriated.
perfect location, quiet even close to ocean drive ( a good quietness policy to sign at check in), nice little pool nothing
Great hotel even though some facilities were not available due to refurbishment, we were given a free upgrade as compensation with a roof terrace with jacuzzi
The location is excellent and the staff is very nice. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and spacius. If we come back to Miami we will probably repeat this hotel. We liked everything. It helped to have a great time in Miami.
The best was the PH jacuzzi balcony
very good location, confort big rooms, pritty hotel staff
good location in South Beach. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. I was charged an extra fee for 'resort fee' plus sales tax for each day which were never mentioned when I made the booking. Seeing that I was there on business and not leisure, it was a waste of money to pay this fee for access to the beach. This should have been stated clearly.
Location and food; oclonial style of the hotel internet didn't work for almost 2 days; no business centre; lift failed several times whilst my stay; no bath in expensive room
The staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and took their time to provide information and services. The food at the hotel restaurant was one phenomenally delicious. The decorative bed pillows were dirty and the maintainence people interrupted our stay at least three different times. Lastly the only elevator was small and extremely slow.
The staff and service was incredible! We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing on the beach right in front. As well as the roofdeck. The $15 resort fee covers sunchairs, towels and umbrellas on the beach. The location of the hotel is excellent. Close to everything yet in a quiet area. Highly recommend staying here if you are willof to splurge a bit.
Location and friendly staff. Beautiful ocean front room. Top notch hotel with a very nice atmosphere. Skimpy on the bathroom amenities. Minor complaint overall.
Top side deck was very relaxing and had a great view. Hotel room was extremely comfortable, especially the bed. Love the books they have all over the place.
The white exterior w/ the front porch is welcoming and classy Polished staff workers w/ smiles Excellent concierge service from both Monique and Paul Artwork, the rock and roll theme Our Room #305 - just gorgeous The Roof - what's not to love. My fiance and I used it together and when he napped in the room one day, it was a perfect refuge for me to have some alone time. BLT Accessibility to Starbucks and the beach. Loved being "across" from the beach vs. directly on it. Your location is very nice. I do wish we could have a waiver for the resort and valet fees. Other hotels (The Tides) were giving what they call a summer Florida resident rate that also provided free valet and no resort fee. Plus, your pool was under construction. Nevertheless, we decided to pay the extra because The Betsy had the appeal we were looking for.
fantastic and courteous staff. getting ice for the room was an inconvenience.
Great location! Right on Ocean Drive and had beach service as well as a rooftop lounge area. The onsite BLT Restaurant is excellent. A classy hotel with small but very attractive rooms (we stayed in the Classic), attractive bar and lobby, and an appealing verandah.
Kindness of the manager on duty when I left, Mr Cory Randolph. In general, the staff is anyway courteous and kind. Nice decor. Good location. Small room. Windows impossible to be open!!!..Bad information from web and Booking.com about what you have to pay to check in with a dog.
The Betsy Hotel is in a great location. Very friendly staff.
God service, bra renhold og fantastisk beliggenhet rett ved stranden og langs Ocean Drive. Den inkluderte frokosten var imidlertid ikke mye å skryte av - kun kaffe/jus og en bolle cornflakes eller en bagel med kremost. Vi kjøpte omeletter og annet fra restauranten som ligger rett ved inngangen til hotellet.
The staff were amazingly helpful. The hotel itself was beautiful to an almost unbelievable level. Our view from the 8th flood was gorgeous. The window opened!! We even asked for somewhere to store a few mixers and leftovers and they wheeled us a small fridge! Awesome.
Location and staff Also quite for sleeping even though spring break Driving on strip
