HOME COOKED MEALS AND BUTTERBEER:
That moment we had been waiting for had finally arrived. With our homemade sign held high, Allison and Adriaan, our lifelong friends ran through the arrival gates at Miami International Airport. It was a special moment. I gave Allison the biggest hug. It felt as though it was yesterday we had seen them. We left the airport bound for breakfast in South Beach, Miami in our Mustang convertible, looking pretty cool next to the hundreds of ...
... German too because we only spoke English with each other. So we listened to them because they would talk all kind of trash about us like what kind of a cocky and bad person I must be because i smoked a cigar during dinner . When we where done with dinner we stood up and left the restaurant with a nice you have a great night but in German. You should have seen their faces when they realized that we understood everything. At around 11 we went to our car and looked for a good place to ...
... clip. Of course the detector went off again. When I went back through, one of the other agents saw the magazine and book. She directed me to put them on the belt to go through the X-ray machine, but not the money clip. Once again the metal detector went off. The agent just asked me to stand by him.
The agent spoke to one of his colleagues and said some code like "UST". The other agent acknowledged that and had me follow her to a ...
... were another two families who we can only assume were literally travelling with their entire contents of their houses. We got some dollars from he cash point and got quite pleased that we didn't have to spend anymore of that Peruvian junk. We moved straight on through to the departure lounge and within an hour we boarded the 5 and half hour journey to Miami airport. I have got a dodgy stomach again but hopefully its because of heavy drinking and general ...

In evening we went to cinema and saw some god awful horror film. Absolute ****!

Historical Traveler Reviews Blue Moon Hotel, Autograph Collection Miami Beach
Great Place to spend a weekend (Oct 17-19 -2003)
My wife and I decided to spend our 7th Anniversary down at the Blue Moon, based on several reviews written here, The room wasn't huge, but it was quiet, with a very comfortable bed, Frank and Michael at the front desk were more than helpful with party and food advice. The AC was a little noisy when it kicked off, as well as the pressure in the shower could use a little boost. (water savers are evil) I will definitely recommend this to anyone who is only interested in spending less than $150.00 a night for a place to stay. It was only 1 block to Ocean Drive, and everything was very clean, and felt like home.
I loved this hotel! It was close to everything, very quiet, the staff was incredible from Carlos the night manager who went out of his way to find me the perfect room, to Frankie the concierge who tried relentlessly to get me a jet ski rental. The room was turned down every night and I was only woken by housekeeping once at 10am. All the amenities were new, and the room was well decorated including a funky painting / clock and a comfortable bed.
We stayed at Blue Moon in July 2003, for 5 nights. They had a summer special, and we ended up paying 89$/night, plus tax. For us, the hotel was very well located, close enough to the beach (1.5 blocks), yet in a quiet location. We chose a room towards the back of the hotel, to have as much quiet as possible, and we were not disappointed. The room itself was small for american hotel standards, but probably average for South Beach. It had a big 27in TV, hair dryer, iron, coffee maker (one free coffee packet per day), safe (free, but you have to ask for lock and key at reception), and minibar. We did not use anything from the minibar, since all drinks were 3-5 times the price at the corner store (which itself was 2-3 times more expensive than the average supermarket :). However, we used the small refrigerator to cool our own drinks.Things we liked in particular: the artwork was exquisite; many watercolors by various artists throughout the hotel, and in the room (including one above the toilet).Things we did not like: the turndown service was spotty; there were no robes, as advertised on the website: ...
Great little place!
We chose to stay here based on the good reviews on trip advisor and were not disappointed. It is small but perfectly formed! The location is great, just one block from the beach and seafront. The staff were really helpful and gave good recommendations for restaurants. We liked it so much we went back after our trip down the keys. Some of the rooms are small but are really well designed and the spa pool is perfect for beating the heat. The patio for breakfast is really nice and a good deal for a hotel. Highly recommended.
Charming Boutique Hotel
As two teachers on spring break in South Beach, "more bang for our buck" is our moto. We got just that when we checked into the Blue Moon Hotel on Collins Ave. The location was perfect. It was located near all the great restaurants and a few minutes stroll to the beach. The room was spacious and clean enough and it was decorated stylishly. The view could have been better (our's overlooked the roof top the building next door.) The only problem we had was when the guest next door kept complaining that she could hear everything through our adjoining wall no matter how quiet we were. The staff was polite, but we were unable to check in on time because our room wasn't ready. Over all, it was a nice experience and we'd go back again.
Blue Moon Hotel is a really nice place to stay. The room was spotless, the bed was clean and turned down, the bathroom is beautifully decorated and clean as well. Hotel staff is more then helpful. Becareful about ordering drinks from the bar. I ordered 1 pina colada and it was $16. The pool is very small, but the beach is a block away. Otherwise everything was great definitely would stay there again.
Stylish small hotel - above South beach average
Stayed at the Blue Moon Hotel in early April. Clean, quiet, comfortable, friendly service, stylish decor, great South Beach feel and steps from everything. The room has really nice, new looking deco furniture, a CD player, mini-bar, robes, Gilcrest & Soames soaps etc. Valet parking is extra. No elevator. Pool is tiny but sparkling & has jacuzzi jets and a glass block waterfall. Small dining patio decorated with blue glass vases and fresh flowers. Free newspaper. No view from our discounted room - look for internet specials as low as $120. I liked that it didn't have the grungy tiles, sandy rugs and hard beds like some hotels in this area. Romantic. I would stay here again.
A great experience
After one night in the noisy and dirty Edison Hotel on Ocean Drive we cancelled our reservation for the following nights and moved to the Blue Moon Hotel on Collins Avenue. The staff was very polite and the room was very nice. Everything was clean and modern - at a rate that was comparable to the Edison`s we got much more value. I would highly recommend this hotel with a great location, good rates and a nice athmosphere!
Wonderful Romantic Hotel
This was one of the best hotels I ever stayed in! The staff was so accomodating and couldn't seem to do enough for you. The rooms were small but very clean and cozy. I only had to walk a block to the beach and was minutes away from all the night life. Thanks Blue Moon for being a cut ABOVE the rest!
Blue Moon is great spot!
We just returned from a trip to South Beach and the Keys. The Blue Moon is ideally located (one block off Ocean drive); staff were very helful and very eager to assist; forego the valet parking ($18) unless it is a Friday/Sat nite and you can't find parking in the garage less than a block north up the street on the opposite side of the hotel (its a municipal garage charging $10 with in/out privileges if you show hotel card); we found hotel quite quiet - we had a room on 3rd floor at back facing the small pool/spa. Restaurant only serves breakfast which we did not try as we usually only have Starbucks lattes. Check your bill to ensure that you are not charged for valet parking. Great rates available on the internet. One of the best accommodation deals of out trip.
