Best Christmas Hotels
For Spending The Holidays in Miami

Christmas Celebrations

On a normal year, Miami is a magnet for visitors during the holidays, but this year is anything but normal. Covid-19 continues to be a challenge and as hotels have been gradually reopening their doors, their safety and health procedures have been strengthened with all necessary measures put in place to welcome guests with complete peace of mind.

Christmas and holiday celebrations will be a bit different this year to comply with social distancing measures, but the festive atmosphere, the blissful beach weather and lower occupancy rates than usual, make this the perfect time for a top notch Miami staycation at a fraction of the normal prices. Why not take a well-deserved break and reconnect with each other, re-discover the beauty of our own backyard, and wrap up the holiday season refreshed and well-rested!

And you don't have to worry about missing on any of the treasured traditions, hotels are all decking the halls and preparing fantastic festive Christmas Eve and Christmas Day meals, from casual family dinners to elaborate and fancy feasts... here are some top picks for this holiday season!

We want to thank you for your support and
wish you a Merry Christmas to you and your family...
Stay Safe and Healthy, all the best in the coming year!
