... escapades with girls... On another note!: today we went to the beach in the morning which was awesome! It's so nice to be in the sun and the heat for a bit, "it's been too long old sport". About half an hour in we wanted to listen to music but realized we didn't have any speakers. However our prayers were answered when a guy in his late 50s showed up with a yellow boom-box and made camp right infront of us and blasted, ...

... something from you. There is the constant feeling that you are being ripped off..... and you most likely are! We found a Mega Pizza that sells pizza by giant slices. We picked up our slices and a couple of bevvies and headed down to the beach to watch the sunset and a giant cruise ship leave the port. A decent walk home in the humidity to walk off our pizza for a chilled night in our apartment's air-con. P.S. this humidity is terrible for my hair! On to Fort Lauderdale ...

... Nicholas Cage is selling his property for $10m. I know a good bank manager if you are interested but you'll have to buy a boat too, as that's the only way to get there. Back on board, Paul & I sat out on our balcony while the boat took off and saw a couple running up the pier waving and calling for the boat to stop....I wonder where they spent their night??? It was dress night on board and I loved seeing all the glitz and glam. Even the kids were in best dresses, ...

... in 1986, but when we arrived we had trouble finding it. One of the hotel bellman told us that in fact the mural was gone because the building had been demolished to put up more condominiums! The main hotel was still there complete with 4 pools, green bar and the usual luxury shops. We were told we could go and take a closer look at the pools, but some punk at the gate wouldn't let us.

We rode back down to Lincoln Mall where we stopped ...

In fact our fellow holidaymakers seem to be either drinking themselves to oblivion from the beach bar or knocking on heaven's door with their mobility scooters. It's like a funeral director's convention.

Faith had told us the Tranquility Pool, past the lagoon and the wedding pagoda, would be ideal for us as it's over-21s only, therefore child-free. Considering most of ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Lily Leon Hotel Miami Beach

    Great service, quiet and relaxing

    from

    We had a great weekend in South Beach. Our stay at Hotel Leon was wonderful. The hotel is small, quiet, romantic and clean! We received great service from every employee we dealt with. Hotel Leon is in the heart of South Beach, but when you walk through their gate it is so quiet and relaxing. Many of our friends stayed at hotels that were loud and crazy all night, we were glad we stayed at Hotel Leon.

    Great for students

    from

    I stayed at the Lily Guesthouse for 6 days and enjoyed the friendly staff, clean, air-conditioned room with refrigerator, microwave, and table settings for 4. The fridge came especially in handy for stashing leftovers and food from the supermarket when we didnt feel like buying from the expensive restaurants on Ocean drive.The hotel is only one block away from all the fun stuff- including the famous Wet Willie's bar. I spent considerably less than $100 a night and would definitely recommend this place to students. The room had Showtime and HBO which was great for rainy days.Slight problem- the bathroom and showers floor in my room were one and the same. Students: Bring your shower shoes.Also, none of the hotels in the South Beach Group (Chesterfield, Shelley, etc.) have a pool- no matter what Katherine tells you! But, if you are like me and enjoy the beach, this is not a problem. Besides, you are bound to meet someone who is staying (and paying) at a more expensive place and you can certainly tag along with them to their pool and still have money for a CALL A CAB.

    Bang For the Buck Here!!

    from

    This is just a great hotel for the $$$. Had a Junior suite for 125.00 per night in mid April Easter Weekend. Everything SoBe has to offer in the Deco District is at your fingertips. However you soon forget you are on hectic Collins Ave. when you check into your room. Street Noise was not existent. Walk anywhere you want beach only a block away where you can rent chairs. Discos, bars, restaurants right here. The staff was very courteous. I would give 5 stars but you must have a pool to get that in SoBe. You can draw the drapes in your room and make a "black hole" in the middle of the day. Real important if you late night in Miami and sleep all day!!!

    Other hotels owned by the same group are superior

    from

    The location was excellent, and the room was clean. However, they closed the office at 11:00 and young crowds hosted very loud parties until the wee hours of the morning. If that is what you want, then you will be happy.I would recommend either the Chesterfield or the Hotel Shelly instead of the Lily Guesthouse. They are all owned by the same group. From the Lily, we had breakfast at the Chesterfield and free drinks at the Hotel Shelly. The Chesterfield had it's own open bar for Chesterfield guests and was more upscale.The room was clean, the people were nice, the drinks were free, and the location was fantastic. However, the Lily is definitely the low end of the totem pole within this unique hotel group, and it shows. The Whitelaw is clearly the best of the five.

    A Great Place for an intimate Getaway

    from

    I stayed here for the 2002 Labor Day Weekend!I absolutely Loved it! The service from the staff was outstanding. The staff were very accomodating and friendly for such a busy weekend. The room was emacculant and had an old rustic appeal to it which made it very romantic. There was little to no noise in the hotel. Overall I had a very pleasant experience. The staff is what really made this Hotel Excellent. So if you love excellent service and quality care, this is the place.

    Large rooms

    from

    Hotel Leon is on Collins Ave. near 8th St. and just one block back from the ocean. This is a nice location. It's far from the maddening crowd but close to all the action. Collins Ave. has many "boutique" hotels. Usually the rooms are small, but the rooms at the Hotel Leon are comparitively large. The hotel was rennovated several years ago and much of the original character of the building was retained. It has a rustic unfinished look. It's definitely not for someone used to the Hilton and all it's ameneties. But the wood floors in the rooms are nice. The reduced rate for 3 nights in Jan. 2003 was $125. You will probably find higher rates on the net, so try calling the hotel directly and negotiating. The hotel has been up for sale for a year.

    The Hotel Leon is on Collins ST. just around the corner from shops, restaurants, bars, and the beach. The staff is very attentive and they have lots of repeat guests. This a renovated property in a building from the 20's. The rooms are clean and euro style in a safe area. They have parking and also located about 2 blocks from the municipal garage. They serve breakfast and have a small bar. Also within walking distance of Lincoln Street.

    Guest house with all to offer

    from

    The Lily Guest house is a great place for spending a week or so in South Beach. Our room had a small fridge, microwave and plenty of room to spread out in. The best part about the hotel was the 4 hour complimentary drinks, the location (near the beach, stores, clubs, and restaurants), and the free pick-up and drop-off to the airport. I would definetly suggest this cute hotel for families or extended stays to Miami Beach.

    It was great

    from

    I came down with my produciton crew to do a photo shoot and we had the best experience at the Lily. Great service, really nice spacious rooms, and close to everywhere we needed to be. Nothing more to say really, just a good hotel...

    Description quite misleading -- avoid this "hotel"

    from

    On a recent visit (AUGUST 2002) to South Beach, I encountered Lily Guest House. The pictures and descriptions that I found on the Internet prior to my visit led me to believe that this would be an ideal place to stay -- WRONG!! From the beginning, the signs were not favorable as, upon my arrival, the room was not ready because the air conditioning did not work in the room. The
