The perfectly located Congress Hotel/Condominium (1060 Ocean Drive, South Beach 33139.) This offers one of the most beautiful Roof Top Swimming Pools on Ocean Drive.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS SUITE IS NOT IN THE VERSACE MANSION. IT IS PART OF THE CONGRESS CONDOMINIUM HOTEL AND HAS A GREAT VIEW OF THE VERSACE MANSION.
The One Bedroom Versace Mansion Ocean-View Suite that I offer is approximately 650 Square Feet; has One King Bed and One Full Sofa Bed---One Single Chair-Bed (Or Air Mattress.)
Located on the top floor of 3, there is a beautiful view over-looking the Versace Mansion and there are ocean views from the Living Room (But please note this is not a direct Oceanfront Unit.
Unlike most units at The Congress with an ocean view and significant street noise, this unit is quiet...A rarity on Ocean Drive.
Note that my guests DO NOT have to pay the Hotel 'Resort Fee' but will have the same access to the Hotel Pool as hotel guests.
Standard features include a Full Kitchenette (Refrigerator, Microwave, Dishwasher, Stove-Top in the One Bedroom Suite ;Plug-in Electric Burner in the Studio; and all basic appliances.) Beautiful Bathroom with Deep Bathtub. Cable TV and Free WiFi/Internet. Beach Towels Included.
As compared with Suites offered by the Hotel, I know that my Unit is one of very few, if any, with a Sealed-Hypo/Allergenic Mattress and 2 Clothing Dressers.. Surprisingly, most units in the Building have only a small Closet for Guest clothing and no Dresser or Cabinets for storage.
Discounted Garage Parking is available in the Garage directly behind the Congress at a savings for approximately 25-40% as compared to Hotel Valet Parking or Standard Garage Rates.

EXCEPTIONALLY AMAZING location! Perfect for the South Beach experience!
Our stay was absolutely amazing. Prior to our arrival date, Lee and his assistant Alex were super efficient with communication and made sure we had every detail necessary for a smooth and seamless check in. Which, by the way, was so easy! We checked in at the Congress Hotel next door and had a staff member personally escort us to the building our condo was located, a few feet down ocean drive.
Now to talk about location...this place could NOT be anymore perfect! If you are looking for THE South Beach experience (night life, music, beach, shows), you need to stay at Lee's place! The instant you walked out the door to the condo-hotel, you are greeted with exciting music, wonderful vacation vibes, and an amazing view of the beach. We were a group of 5, all in our mid-20's who had never been to South Beach before, so were looking to be out during the day and night. Lee's place was the perfect spot for us. You are literally in 5 minute walking distance from EVERYTHING! Directly out our windows was Versace Mansion and when they say pictures cannot describe in words how close/beautiful it is, it is true! The Palace bar was directly beneath our roof-top pool (which was so convenient and literally had the best views we had ever seen of a beach). Ocean's Ten and Clevelander (two of our favorite places) and many more great places were in seconds walk down the strip. The only regret I had on this trip was not booking a Bottomless Mimosa Drag Brunch at the Palace on Saturday or Sunday afternoon for all of us. Be sure to book this a few days in advance, it looked/sounded amazing and apparently fills up quick! Also be sure to get a Wet Willie's slushie and some Mom's pizza!
The condo itself was cute and just what we needed. Everything was very clean and we all fit very comfortably. There was some noisy construction in the early mornings, but this was not an issue for us and slightly expected with the development of Miami Beach. Other than this, we could not hear ANYTHING from the strip - Lee's place was the perfect location to have fun on ocean drive/beach and then reclude into peace and quiet, even at night. Having a full kitchen was extremely convenient as well.
Hands down will be returning to Lee's condo and beautiful South Beach! Of note, we visited from Saturday - Thursday and wished we would have came one day earlier. The weekend was SO much fun and we wish we would have had one more weekend day instead of one more week day. BOOK THIS CONDO ASAP!!!
Thanks Carly.....And the price relative to anything else in the area is almost always below the typically higher area prices for lesser quality-noiseir units.

How awesome was this unit . All cafes and restaurants right at the doorstep , and a very entertaining drag show on every night at the Palace which is right next door . And for all these restaurants and shows there is no noise . We arrived late at night and the lovely girl greeted us and gave us lots of options for tours . The sofa bed is very comfortable , and no noise between rooms . Great for friends who want seperate rooms . I would 100% recommend this Ocean Drive unit for out of towners , and you will too ... Enjoy !
Great location, nice views!
Alex was responsive to our need for a new air mattress for our 5th person. The futon is a little narrow for two people but fine if you don't move a lot. The king bed is great! Very nice unit overall and you can't get closer to the beach and nightlife than this. You can get a nice partial view of the ocean and a great view of the Versace Mansion. Easy walk to great local restaurants such as the 11th Street Diner. Don't forget a visit to Little Havana.
After settling in, we were very comfortable and would definitely return. Thank you Lee & Alex!
Thank you.....Much appreciated.
Nice place to stay!
Great location, great unit, great communication.
Will stay here again! Thanks!
What we hoped it would be
Check in was easy, room was clean and the location was perfect!
Fun place, accurate description, good management.
Im from Canada and stayed in this condo for a week. Lee Baron the owner is very responsive gets back to you quickly. But when you get there you deal with Alex his assistant who is sooooo nice. I called because the hair dryer was broken and he went and bought us a new one within two hours. They also refunded me all my deposit. (The Canadian dollar got better so i ended up losing some money, just remember that might happen if you are a different currency then U.S) I was a little worried paying in full before i got there i was scared the place didn't exist but it most certainly does. It is like the pictures show which was nice. The bathroom is nice, the bed is very comfortable the lamps make it cosey and everything is as shown. The maids that they use do not do a good job cleaning, they dont bother cleaning in the cracks or walls or even the cups were not very clean so it wasn't 100 percent clean but it was okay because Miami is not a clean place anyways (the back alley smells so bad due to the heat and all the restaurants food in the garbage bins, plug your noes if you go out the back to the alley) . The bathroom sliding door is very broken can barely slide it open or closed, everything else good. This condo is in the heart of the busiest most popular fun street in Miami so its a constant party and loud. Some loud base parties start even at 5 am and go all night. Plus majority of people driving are young people with top down and music pounding, so this is sooooo perfect if your there to party, but i wasn't i was there having surgery so it was really loud and hard to sleep at night time. The elevators move insanely slow but they work so dont get freaked out. Having two little balcony that was big enough to at least look out was really nice. Its bright and sunny in the unit and also has blinds. (In order to check in and get your key you have to go to the other congress hotel building front desk, they are super busy and it might take some time) I got this place for the amazing pool but didn't end up going and seeing it, i heard really good things though. Accurate description when it comes to the Versace Mansion View because it really is directly out your window which is cool. The water is across the street and beautiful. The restaurant attached directly downstairs will cost you 150 dollars or more for 2 burgers and a drink just FYI and they all always add in tip so read your bill, i accidentally tipped 40 percent! This place is good and fun GOOD!
I apologize for the minor problems with cleaning and the bathroom door, both of which will be taken care of for the future.
As for the noise, this stay was during Spring Break when the Ocean Drive area is more crowded and noisy than at any other time of the year.
The heavy Sliding Glass Doors typically make the Suite one of the quietest places to stay in this area, but thousands of Spring Breakers are no match.
