About Blue Moon Hotel: Located in the heart of Miami's Art Deco District, Blue Moon Hotel is housed in a Mediterranean Revival building on Collins Avenue. The 75-guestroom historic hotel was created in 1997 through the artful combination of two unique buildings: the Lafayette Hotel, which originally opened in 1934 and the Floral Apartment Hotel (later known as Les Suites) built in 1940. Merv Griffin, the late entertainer and hotelier, once owned the hotel and gave the hotel its name after the song "Blue Moon" written by Rodgers and Hart. (Griffin was always particularly fond of the tune.) The hotel is an affiliate of Marriott's Autograph Collection and is a proud member of HHM's Independent Collection.
