      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

      individuals I dealt with that worked on the property were nice, but that did little to compensate for the room and accommodations that I ended up experiencing.

      Even though the air conditioning unit was replaced, the unit was never able to cool the room successfully, which made for a less than perfect night for sleep and rest for the next day. The remote for the television was nowhere to be found, the phone had a lot of static when I attempted to use it, and, those so-called "marble" bathrooms sure weren't in my room. Needless to say, my experience at The Lily Guest House was less than perfect (not even tolerable), as I cut my reservation short and checked out the next morning (three nights was originally booked).

      My advice is to avoid this property and save yourself from what I experienced during my less-than-perfect stay. And, finally, there is a $3.00 "resort fee" charged to all guests, even though not originally disclosed. Ironically enough, I had never heard of such a fee anywhere else in South Beach and, laughingly, I could not refer to this property as a "resort" with a straight face!

      My second flight was a 15h flight, so when I got onto the plane I decided ...

She had memorized a whole script and spoke with absolutely no ardor. Even the Siri function on iphones sounds more real than she did... The afternoon on the other hand was very eventful. We started by stopping by at the Miami Boat Show to say hi to my good friend Floris's dad Sietse and his Girlfriend Karina. Once ...

      ... it tasted very well.

      Then we went to Miami by a taxi too see the NBA final of Miami Heat-Oklahoma City Thunder.
      We arrived to American Airlines Arena, went in and bought some Miami Heat soveneirs.

      Then we went to take our seats to watch the game.
      The players game out too the court and the whole arena started cheering.

      ... the Hacienda houses so many and is in direct contact with nature. In Ecuador there is a culturally-acceptable form of sexism called "machismo," which glorifies the macho-man; because of this the men in our group were often given more strenuous tasks than the women, but at least I was allowed to use a machete! Each day after work we've gone to the beach for a few hours. The beach here is so different than the beach at Fripp. The water is ...

      ... won't bore you with the details of the room but it was basically room-like with many room characteristics.

      There were no secrets about the type of hostel we had chosen. On the walls hung newspaper articles about the hostel, that read, 'The best clubbing hostel in the USA - sleeping is for whimps.' And hot dang! did we feel that immediately as we walked through the door. Gramsy Torres was wearing her panic face. Fortunately for Vo Torres night one was ...
