The Blue Moon Hotel is a colonial wonder situated in the heart of Miami's South Beach. The hotel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Here is a quote from the hotel's website about the history of the hotel: "The Blue Moon is named after the song "Blue Moon" which was written by Rogers and Hart. The name was changed by Merv Griffin, the famous talk show host, who owned the hotel at the time and was a big fan of Rogers and Hart."

The hotel has prices that range from under $100 to a high of $700 during Super Bowl Weekend (but the New Orleans Saints would have to be IN the Bowl for the top price to apply). All the rooms feature: wireless internet: private voice mail with two telephone lines in each room; hair dryers and upscale European amenities; CD player/clock radio; coffee maker; in room movies; complimentary in-room safes; mini-bars; cribs and smoking sleeping rooms available on request; old-fashioned extra deep bath tubs; irons and ironing boards; complimentary breakfast;and soft cotton bathrobes.

When we stayed at the Blue Moon from May 19-23, 2007, the clientele was mostly European and South American tourists; they told us that they found the hotel through their travel guides and that it was highly recommended.

The hotel is quiet and well run and is the perfect haven from the utter frolic of a South Beach vacation. Good Choice!
