“2 thumbs up for the Leslie.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

The Leslie turned out to be an excellent choice for my 4 nights on South Beach. It is a top down renovation of a classic small art deco hotel right on Ocean Drive in South Beach. I was truly amazed that within days of my trip I was able to not only find a room with 2 beds at the Leslie, but a room with 2 queen beds. Everything was clean, modern, and new. The staff is very helpful and friendly. I left a jacket in the room's closet when I left but when I called the hotel later that night, they put me on hold, went up to the room and found it. I got it back express mail 2 days later... bravo!

The roof deck is as others have described, and no the roof and deck bars are not open yet, which does make it a bit of an oasis in the middle of the bustling South Beach strip. You will not find a better place to stay on South Beach at this price point, period.

Room Tip: Try to get on the 3rd floor as South Beach is pretty noisy at night.

We decided to pick this hotel for our 6 year wedding anniversary. Property was all new. Roof top pool was enjoyable since the beach was windy that day. Room was really cute, but the handle on the shower was strange and had to be explained as the bellhop brought us to our room. Our A/C in our room did not work. We were told that it should cool down and they adjusted the temp from a remote on the front desk. We went out and came back around 1am, still not working. Different front desk person told us it should cool down as she tried to lower the temp, but didn't seem like she knew much about the system. Unfortunately, the front staff was not very competent and at 5am I went to the front desk, sweating, and told them I must have another room so my wife and I could sleep. We were given another room key and slept great in cold a/c! Was given a credit after some demanding. Still no call or email from management apologizing or anything. Now, after all of that we would stay here again. It is in a perfect location as well as clean, neat, charming.

Room Tip: Make sure you know the AC works.

Stayed at this completely rebuilt historic hotel, in the heart of the heart of south beach, on ocean drive facing the sea...What a treat! Everything is done with taste, with tones of grey contrasting with the yellow exterior, beautiful architecture details, great artwork everywhere. Stayed in suite 212, superb with an unbelievable view of palm trees and water, and a bathroom like I have never seen ( so many water jets and lights...amazing) Most importantly the rooftop piscine with the ocean in background, probably the only such treat in Miami....Very romantic..stay there while you still can get a suite! (still very affordable)

The hotel is freshly renovated and the swimming pool had opened a week before our arrival, but there was no sign of the construction dust we might have expected. The renovation is very tasteful and is the perfect balance between the classic Miami Beach deco style and modern amenities. Size at three floors is very manageable, but there are nonetheless many distinctive spaces where we as the family could spread out, from the nice swimming pool and spa area on the roof to the lobby and on to the fitness room and business center. The restaurant and bar had not yet opened and we hope that it will not intrude on the relaxed feel of the lobby. The staff was very friendly and responsive, even on the night shift. We, a family of two adults and a pre-teen shared a 2 double bed room comfortably. There were no specific kids' activities at the hotel itself--the beach and park is right across the street--but our child felt welcome in the adult centric South Beach scene.

The service from the moment we called to enquire about the hotel was brilliant. Helpful, friendly and honest about the hotel being in early days.

Great location right on Ocean Drive but none of the crazy, pushy sales on the front steps.
Lovely warm welcome from our arrival - the staff is great.

The pool on the roof is a real gem - full service with food and beverage from the hotel will make a difference as in the first few weeks they have been taking orders from next door which is just not up to the standard so we're looking forward to going back to see what they can do!

The rooms (we had 2 with 2 of us in one, 1 in the second) are a good size with either a bath in some of them. Its new so all the rooms facilities are great quality.

For the price, this hotel is a great quality experience. Having stayed at the Shore Club and others in a different price bracket, the Leslie stacks up in terms of rooms and service. The pool is a great feature and has less of a scene so we found it a great, intimate experience

From the second i checked in i was told that it was a brand new hotel so that i might encounter a few small issues. The rooms are nice, the glass bathroom door i didn't like. I saw the pool and it looked magnificent i didn't swim though but next time i will. It's on ocean street so there will be noise but understand it's Miami. Miley the front desk agent and David made my experience a lot better fixing every small issue and answering all my questions with great attitude i was even called a cab to the airport and told were the clubs are and all. Hot water is a big issue though, during my stay i hope its later fixed in the future. Housekeeping are loud and lobby is too quiet. Overall great experience
