It’s tempting to say it’s the little things that make the Royal Palm, Miami such a pleasurable place to stay — plush robes and slippers in the spacious bathrooms, an irresistible treat on your pillow each evening, the well-stocked mini-bar that’s really not mini at all. But this is South Beach, and fortunately, the hotel has not overlooked the importance of style in their slavish pursuit of all that substance.

It helps that they started with the old Royal Palm, a storied Art Deco hotel on Collins Avenue. In the course of a very spendy renovation, the hoteliers managed to hold onto some of the coolest period details, like the original green glass front desk that now serves as the coffee bar. Look closely and you’ll find others — a compass rose in the terrazzo floor, porthole windows in the lobby bar — or don’t, and you’ll still be confronted by stunning pools, unmissable art installations and one of the hottest new clubs in town, SL Miami. At the latter, the audio-visual cover of a chest-rumbling sound system and mesmerizing lights keeps the famous revelers coming through the doors. Or maybe it’s the New York cachet, as both the club proper and the adjoining clubby restaurant, Catch, are offshoots of popular Meatpacking District originals.

If partying with J-Lo in Meatpacking South doesn’t sound like your cup of hedonism, there are some distinctly local dining and drinking options, as well. Florida Kitchen, which also handles the beach- and pool-side dining, offers dishes that manage to be both highly inventive and quintessentially of their place, like conch chowder with fritter dippers, spiny lobster with dry sherry bisque, or calabazza hash. And the South Shore rum bar is just as perfectly Floridian, with a well-stocked humidor and a cocktail program overseen by an expert “rum curator.”

In fact just reading some of the staff titles gives you a pretty good indication of where you are. In addition to the rum curator, there’s a sun concierge to ensure you get the most from your time at the beach. That beach of course is a famous one, and to supplement all the sun and sand and beautiful people, the Royal Palm provides complimentary beach boxes to ensure you’re well prepared, so you don’t have to return to your stylish hotel peeling like a Florida orange.

Clearly the point is not to hide in your room and stare at the television, though if you want to hide in your room and stare at the television, you’ll of course still be taken care of. Laze-worthy furniture and window-sized plasma screens see to that, and the views out the actual windows aren’t half bad either.
