Families will appreciate hotel's proximity to the beach, rooftop pool and game room
Travelers bemoan property's pricey valet parking
Recent visitors raved about the location, service and relaxing ambiance of the Leslie Hotel. Located on Ocean Drive, across the street from the beach, this canary yellow, 35-room boutique property offers prime access to South Beach's vibrant nightlife and dining scene. But according to past guests, you don't have to go far for either: The on-site Cala Cafe was a hit with past guests for its delicious menu and attentive service, while the rooftop pool and terrace offer a panoramic vantage point for taking in the Miami Beach scene. If you do want to check out the beach, you can borrow beach towels and chairs from the hotel. Reviewers were also impressed with the rooms, which they described as spacious and stylish (rooms average around 350 square feet, while the hotel's two suites span 550 square feet). In addition to their modern design, accommodations are equipped with flat-screen TVs, minifridges and, in the suites, separate showers and bathtubs. You'll find that the hotel's eye for style extends beyond the rooms; the hotel features art deco aesthetics throughout the entire property, an homage to the building's original construction in 1937. Another aspect of the Leslie Hotel that sets it apart from its Ocean Drive neighbors: It boasts its own game room, ideal for those traveling with kids. But if you plan on bringing a car, be prepared to pay more than $36 per day for valet parking.
