“Good Boutique Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

This was right off the strip in Miami Beach by a block or so. The room was nice, roomy. Bathroom a little eclectic. They really went out of their way to be friendly and service oriented in every way. Of course, parking is a problem in Miami Beach off the strip, so you do have to pay an additional $30 for their valet parking and it does take you 30 minutes to retrieve your car. We got a rate since we were having a business meeting there at the hotel. Overall, a very night experience near the south beach strip.

Spent two days at the Blue Moon before a cruise. Loved the location one block from Ocean Blvd. and the beach. The room was small but remember the age of the building. It was very adequate. The bathroom was fine. Loved the shower. Heard no outside noise in the room, very quiet. Adrianna was very pleasant, talked to her several time at the bar. The evening bartender was excellent and friendly. The whole staff did a very good job. Ate at the Fix Restaurant one evening. The food was good and a lot quieter than most of the other restaurants. A very nice place to relax and have a few drinks. It only took about 15 minutes to get to the Port of Miami from the hotel.

I really liked this hotel, especially as a Marriott Platinum member always looking to maximize my stays. It is clearly an older hotel that was updated and remodeled and has quite a lot of charm. The rooms are very nice, especially RM 226 if you can get it, nice corner room on the 2nd floor with lots of windows on 2 sides and great views out front. It has a nice little bar downstairs with ver friendly staff. The valet is a life saver otherwise parking could be a pain, having to walk 4-5 blocks from parking areas.

The best part of it is it's location right in the heart of south beach. It is literally 1 street over from Ocean DR and the beach and right in the center of all of the nightlife. Great options like Mango's, Ocean 10, and The Clevelander are a 2 minute walk away. It's about a 10-15 minute walk from Smith & Wolenski's as well as The Bazaar restaurants and club Hyde. And you can't go Wong with any of these places in my opinion so if beach proximity, nearby clubs and restaurants, and a more unique stay are on your list this is a great place.

And there are always Ferraris and Lamborghini's parked out front. Not as many as you will see 1 block over on Ocean DR though, wow.

Highly recommended and so glad it's part of the Autograph Collection.

Good: Clean
Nice staff
Breakfast was GREAT.

BAD: Valet takes 30 minutes to get car.
The nightly rate is a little high.
The pictures on the internet must have been with a special camera lens. The rooms and pool area are much smaller in person.

Room Tip: I was in room 215.

My wife and I stayed at The Blue Moon for 7 nights during Art Basel, while I was there on business.

Pros: great staff, starting with Raul at the front door to welcome us and help with luggage; Adrianna, April and Jamie in the bar and restaurant treated us like family; and Jaime, the day shift desk manager who solved a major problem for us on checkout day with grace and professionalism.

The rooms, though small, are a quiet oasis in the middle of 24/7 partying in that area; beds are very comfy, housekeeping was excellent, high end toiletries in the bathroom and modern shower; 7 nights in a small, boutique hotel, though, is still tough.

Hotel is right in the center of all the activity at South Beach, beautiful Art Deco architecture, well maintained. Has a small but nice pool in a patio courtyard out back, unusual and nice touch to decompress at with a drink once or twice.

Cons: the rooms are small, but not as small as other hotels in the zone, based on feedback from my business partners; if you have a car as I did, parking for it is done off-site, plan on a 30 minute wait (frankly, cabbing it to meetings was much easier, and fairly cheap).

On our last night, the power in our building went out about 2 AM. The A/C turned off, so we had to open a window to get some air. That meant a LOT of street noise (Saturday night/Sunday morning), very little sleep, shaving in the dark when I got up, and a cold shower for both of us.

When I got to the front desk to discuss it with Jaime, I was not a very happy guest. Before I could finish, she smiled and said the hotel and staff were very sorry, and planned to comp that night's charges completely.

Jaime handled it very well, and as I would expect of a Marriott Autograph property.

If the South Beach area is on your list for business or pleasure, I would highly recommend this property. The staff are very friendly, will handle problems exceptionally well, and the property itself is well above most of the other Art Deco era hotels, if not all of them.

This was our second visit to the Blue Moon and we enjoyed it. Very large and nicely decorated rooms. I love the ample amount of pillows, good size bathroom and great breakfast (in room). We didn't try the breakfast room. The hotel has nice feel of an art deco yet modern style.
The location is great and within walking distance to the Ocean.
It's a very good value for money if you want to spend most of the time out and about within walking distance to the clubs, restaurants and the beach.

Hotel is small but that's typical around the boutique hotels in south beach. Remember - most of these places were once condos turned into hotels. Rooms are really cozy and clean. Bathrooms were also very clean and I loved the simple modern beach decor throughout. The location is great. While it's not on the beach, you can get there by foot. Staff and management were amazing and very courteous while staying and doing business here. I recommend this place. Just note that prices are pretty high so make sure you shop.

Dear FIUPANTHER,

Thank you for your review! We love to read you enjoy the Boutique hotel feel. One of the perks of our location is being just steps away from all the attractions which Miami Beach has to offer. We hope to see you soon

Kind regards,
