... to clear & the sun started shining. People poured onto the streets & beaches. It's amazing how your perception of a place can change when the sun is shining & there's activity. We spent the rest of our time in South Beach people watching, strolling, window shopping & shopping. I brought a new pair of denim shorts that Sam picked out, he's not a bad shopping companion. We had lunch at the ...
Ever since I was 10 years old and I played basketball for Hobart and idolized Michael Jordan I always wanted to see an NBA game. Bobbie also played basketball for Hobart and we both loved to go and watch the Devils play in the NBL, but nothing would compare to the best league in the world with the greatest ball players. We were both very excited for tonight and have been looking forward to it for a few weeks now. Miami heat are playing Orlando Magic at home in ...
... Runway in the last season so it was cool to go there. They had all sorts of candy. Lots of chocolate in all sorts of flavours including Bacon!
Then it was dinner time, so that is about all to report. Unless you are keen to know we drove by the DASH store - those who watch the Kardashins will know what I mean.
Highlight: That summer time ...
... for crab. Just delicious simple freshly steamed crab claws with lemon. For $28.95, the lunch special gave me 4 medium size crab claws, 1/2 portion of coleslaw, hash brown, creamed spinach and key lime pie. All delicious except the dessert which was too sweet - maybe the americans like it but I can't stomach that much sugar. The crab season is October to May so glad to have slipped in time to eat some. During the other ...

Day 36 – Wednesday 5th September
We had booked to swim with dolphins today at the Miami Seaquarium, so after a nice sleep to recover from yesterday's stress, that's what we did. It was a bit of a hassle getting there, because we had the wrong address, so we went from being really early to really late. Ahh well, we got there in the end. And it was amazing! First of all we had to put on ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Victor Miami Beach
My wife and I arrived and immediately thought the hotel was beautiful. That is about the end of my positive comments.
Had the opportunity to stay at the Victor for three nights in April. Had a wonderful room, top level of the new addition, overlooking the pool and a knock out ocean view. The Victor is a great combination of cutting edge and elegance.....very nice balance between the two. The open concept with the bathroom was something I was not sure about but really love it...the soaking tubs and walk in rain shower are not to be missed.
The place to be if you want to be with the stars! This is a great boutique hotel...
Everything about this hotel was fabulous; the rooms are gorgeous and comfortable, the staff attentive and polite, the pool is set up beautifully with a great view of the street and the ocean (a couple of covered cabanas are available for those, like myself, who don't like to be in direct sun), the pool-side service was great, the food in the restaurant and at the pool was wonderful. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed my stay at a hotel this much. There is no doubt that we will be back at this hotel. I just hope that with all these great reviews, sucess doesn't spoil the place.
The place to be
The word fabulous applies to just about everything. Rooms, cocktails, food and the general "scene" all fabulous! Eclectic sophisticated crowd. Service very good. Just a wonderful place to weekend. Love having a pool level room-worth the price to get that space!
Very Nice Hotel!!!
We spent a long weekend in the Victor and it was very special.
The spa has just opened and looks great.
The pool is beautiful and the service around it was fantastic. The ambience around the pool was very European....topless sunbathers were typical.
The rooms were average sized but oppulently decorated. We stayed in a pool bungalow room which had direct pool access but was still private.
The concierge was very helpful with any info. or reservations.
I will stay in the Victor again.
Staff make it the best in South Beach
Stayed 3 nights at the Hotel Victor and will definitely be back. The hotel combines intimate and unusual decor with a friendly and efficient staff. Talking to various staff members it seeems they had thorough training for 3 months before the hotel opened and it has certainly paid off. Pool area is small but sufficient, you could spend hours in the many lounge recesses watching the world go by. Seems to me as if all the rooms would have ocean or partial ocean views too. Right in the middle of South Beach, though the windows block out any of the noise you dont want. Spa is not open yet but due soon. I think this will become one of the best hotels in the area. Having stayed at the Shore Club and the Raleigh previously, the Victor is my favorite.
What a fabulous hotel. This will be the hottest place on SoBe for some time to come. Stayed in a bungalow room, right off the pool and saw Tara Reid sunbathing. Flat screen TV's and a coed steam-room. A frozen vodka bar was very cool. They have a "pillow menu" so that you choose what kind you prefer to sleep on. Very pricey, but there is a reason. Stroll to the beach or check out, who is checking out the Versace Manson next door. Very nice staff, who went out of their way to please. P Diddy just had a party here.
Stayed 2/11-2/14. A very trendy and attentive hotel. A little pricey but it was so worth it. The poolside day beds were amazing. The very victor king room is the one to book. The only down side is that the pool needs to be heated. The hotel is in the center of all the action. I would stay there again and again!!
My wife and I recently toured the hotel as part of planning an event for March 2005. While the hotel is not yet completed, it promises to be the hippest and hotest destination in SoBe. The public spaces are luxurious and hip. The design details are not to be missed. Guided by the French designer of Hotel Costes, there is an enormous attention to detail and a European flair. The lobby is gorgeous and the restaurant is spectacular. The 2nd floor pool deck and outdoor club promises to be the next SkyBar. The rooms are outstanding done in a warm rich colour scheme with expensive materials and furnishings. The ocean view suites are even better with expansive window views surrounding infinity bathtubs. With a great young staff who have come from W Hotels, Island Outpost, Little Nell and Park Hyatts, the service holds great promise (and a high mark hurdle if it matches the physical property.) We were sold!
