Top 10 Hotels in Downtown / Brickell Miami

Downtown Miami Hotels Nightviews

Downtown Miami and the city's business and financial district, Brickell, is an area that has been going through a revitalization which has added to the upscale high-rise office towers skyline a fantastic array of residential condominiums and a wide assortment of top restaurants and bars, shops and boutiques and loads of entertainment, all on the edge of sparkling Biscayne Bay.

Many of the city's 5-star luxury hotels will be in this area and will be equipped with all the amenities to cater business travelers. But also due to its proximity to the Port of Miami, downtown Miami and Brickell hotels are ideal for cruise passengers looking for a convenient pre or post-cruise stay. As a matter of fact, it is not unusual to see plenty of families at these high-end business hotels on their way to their Disney Cruises.

Hotels in this area enjoy stunning views of the Miami and Brickell skylines and Biscayne Bay. The area is very pedestrian friendly with beautiful waterfront promenades and also well-connected with FREE public transportation links, the Metromover and the free city Trolleys.

Downtown and Brickell hotels besides catering for the business traveler, will be suitable for:

  • Arriving and Departing cruise visitors with convenient location to Port of Miami
  • Visitors in town for a concert or game at American Airlines Arena or the Adrienne Arsht Center
  • For a romantic stay, downtown and Brickell hotels offer mind-blowing city skyline and bayside views
  • Lots of dining and entertainment options in a very walkable and safe neighborhood

These area is not suitable for a beach vacation. Although the area is only a 15 - 20 minute ride away from the beaches, if your vacation will be spent mostly enjoying the sand and surf, it is better to choose a hotel closer to the beaches.
