Bedroom with ocean views at Grand Beach Hotel Miami

Miami offers a very wide range of hotels and accomodations for its visitors, from beachfront luxury five-star hotels with over the top ammenities and views to more economical budget hotels and hostels offering convenience and value.


The "best place to stay in Miami" will of course depend on what is best for you, your interests and your budget. If most of your vacation will be spent relaxing at the beach, you will find plenty of choices and quite a few beaches to choose from. Although the most popular, you are not limited to trendy South Beach.

As a general rule, premium views come at premium prices, but you can always find plenty of options near the beach that won't cost you an arm and a leg.

Our Miami Hotel Guide can help you narrow down your choices of accomodation as well as decide on a specific area or neighborhood.

Shopping around for hotels and making reservations ahead of time is particularly important if you will be visiting during a major holiday or event such as New Year's Eve, Art Basel, or Spring Break when rooms will be in short supply and prices skyrocket as the events near.

Here is an Events Calendar for a quick look at this year's major holidays and events, and be sure to check the listings for the month of your visit.
