This was our first time in South Beach and we will be returning to the Blue Moon. It was always nice to come back to our hotel to be greeted with smiles and genuine concern about our vacation. We were in town for a destination wedding and were on a budget. The value we received compared to other choices was fantastic. The breakfast and snack time was a great added feature. We stayed in a one bedroom suite. It had comfortable furnishings, a living room, bathroom, two flat screen tv's, two ceiling fans, central air conditioning/heat and a king size bedroom. All of this right in the middle of everything. One block to the beach. Our suite was laid out with the living room to the street and the bedroom in the back. This allowed us to see all the happenings outside while being able to sleep quietly and comfortably toward the back of the hotel. It was quite chilly when we first arrived to Miami (upper 50's low 60's.) Not all hotel rooms in South Beach have heat but ours worked great. We also had luxurious linens to snuggle into. The front desk, concierge, bartender, cleaning staff etc.... were all friendly, accommodating and seemed to go the extra mile. All of the wedding guests stayed in other local hotels....some large chains and some like sized boutiques. It was funny though how everyone wanted to meet up at The Blue Moon. People were definitely jealous of the amenities, the quality of our room and the price that we paid. The decor of the hotel was also refreshing. Our room was light and bright with a beach side cottage feel. This historic hotel even has a working antique elevator. You really should give The Blue Moon a try.
