New Year's Eve Hotels in Miami

New Year's Eve Fireworks Miami

Welcoming the New Year in Miami? This is certainly the place! This is one of the busiest times, so needless to say, the sooner you firm up your plans, the sooner you should book your hotel!

Booking.com

As expected, hotel rates in Miami during New Year's Eve, or any major holiday or event for that matter, skyrocket the closest you get to it. Premium views i.e. bayviews and fireworks views book months in advance, and of course, come with premium prices.

If you have accumulated Hotel Reward points, THIS is the time to redeem! All major hotel chains are more than well-represented in Miami, many with several flaghsip hotels in the area, but again, start your search early as the number of rooms allocated for Rewards will be limited.

Where the best place to stay in Miami for New Year's Eve will depend much on what your preferences are.

If you want to stay close to the action in Bayfront Park where the main festivities and fireworks take place, then choose a hotel in the downtown area where you can walk easily to it. Trying to get a taxi or Uber might not be the easiest on New Year's Eve. Bayfront Park is where the city's mega party and televised Pitbull's New Year's Revolution take place and where the city's fireworks will launch from. Here's more on this year's events.

Hotels closest to Bayfront park include:

All of the above hotels have fantastic waterfront views but are NOT on the beach. If you want sand and surf, fireworks and champagne then head over to South Beach or Miami Beach. The party scene here will be sizzling and there will be fireworks displays throughout. The downtown fireworks will also be in view from many of their rooftop pools and lounges, and the City of Miami Beach will of course have its own display.

If you want to be on the beach and in the middle of the action, Ocean Drive is the place, The Clevelander is party central. SoFi (South of Fifth) or South Pointe if you want to chill and still stumble into the revelries, The Bentley South Beach is a great option.

And then there is classic Miami Beach, the Fountainbleau is the magnet for first rate events and VIP treatment, after all, this is where Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin once entertained.

The period between Christmas and New Year is very busy, there is also the Orange Bowl happening at the same time i.e. college kids swarming the town. If you are traveling with family or would like a quieter scene, choose a place away from the melee of South Beach. The areas in North Miami Beach, Surfside and Sunny Isles, Coconut Grove and Key Biscayne have a more tranquil while still lively vibe.

Most if not all hotels will be having special events during the Holidays. It is not unusual to have some of the areas of the hotel blocked off while preparations are underway for their galas, concerts and parties. Pool decks, rooftop lounges, sun terraces might be off-limits to guests even if temporarily, pay special attention to avoid dissapointment.

We will be updating this page as individual hotel events are published.
