New Year's Eve Hotels in Miami

New Years Eve Miami Hotels: Fontainbleau Miami Beach

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!

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.

Check out this year's NY Events to give you an idea of what is happening where to help you decide on a neighborhood or area to stay (or stay away from) if you haven't already.

If you want to stay close to the action in Bayfront Park where the City of Miami's 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 free party takes place and where the city's fireworks will launch from.

Hotels closest to Bayfront park include:

But Bayfront Park is not the only celebration going on in Miami. The City of Miami Beach, not to be outdone, will be having its own bash, fireworks and all, so 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, as the champagne flows and fireworks explode all around. The downtown fireworks will also be in view from many of the rooftop pools and lounges in the area.

If you want to be on the beach and in the middle of the action, Ocean Drive is the place, Map Miami Hotels NYE The Clevelander is party central.

Consider the SoFi (South of Fifth) or South Pointe area if you want to chill and still stumble into the revelries, Map Miami Hotels NYEThe Bentley South Beach is a great option.

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

If you want to celebrate in opulence and Old World glamour and charm, Map Miami Hotels NYE the Biltmore in Coral Gables and Map Miami Hotels NYE Casa Casuarina (Versace Mansion) in South Beach are your top choices.

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.

If traveling in a group with family or friends, a vacation rental is quite convenient and has much to offer. There are endless options from luxury beachfront condos to convenient studios offering fantastic value just steps from the beach. The most sought-after properties sell out quick so try to book early, here is more on Miami Vacation Rentals

And finally, if your priorities are price, party and surf 'n sand, in that order, then consider some of our top picks for South Beach Hostels, yes, there are youth hostels in South Beach!

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.

As another year comes to a close, we at MiamiScapes want to thank you for your support and wish you a wonderful year ahead to you and your family...
Happy New Year!
