Memorial Day weekend 2018

Booked Royal Palms hotel over the Memorial Day weekend. Family group with 2year old.

How noisy /safe should that area be, hearing that it is a party weekend with a high police preconceived.

Definitely not what we planned for when we booked. Should we try and cancel and get out of the area?

MEmorial Day Weekend will be crazy busy in that area. There is a Hip Hop event as well as an Air Show with roaring jets overhead.

If you're after a relaxing holiday, move your hotel a little north of that region. Contact the hotel directly if you booked with them (rather than a 3rdparty site) and tell them you don't wish to be so close to the noise.

Not sure your room budget but - consider the Confidante, the Eden Roc, the Edition, the W Hotel, the 1 Hotel or the Traymore.

If you’re looking for peace and quiet in the daytime, sure, look for someplace in mid beach, or south of fifth in south beach. But the jets etc. are not there at night, and the most crowded section of the beach is a few blocks south of your hotel. I expect places like Lincoln Rd will be close to normal. There will be heavier than normal traffic, and some roads closed, so hope you don’t plan to drive much. But all in all I think it won’t be so bad staying at the Royal Palm.
