Hotels in Miami
Whether you're travelling to Miami on a budget or looking to splash out, there are plenty of hotels to choose from. You could book a hotel right by Miami Beach, stay in the city's Art Deco District, or opt for a reliable chain like Marriott or Hilton. Miami's hotels have something for everyone – and budget certainly doesn't mean boring. If you stay at the three-star Deauville Beach Resort, for instance, you can enjoy spectacular views of the Atlantic, while sleeping in a building that’s seen live performances by The Beatles and Frank Sinatra.
Miami travel guide
Where to stay
Immortalised in a thousand movies, Miami Beach is lined with a mixture of elaborate luxury accommodation and cheap hotels. At South Beach, where the beautiful people come out to play against a backdrop of colourful Art Deco architecture, you’ll discover countless hip bars, exotic restaurants, chic boutiques and vibrant clubs. Bal Harbour is famous for its deluxe hotels and designer shopping mall, whilst Key Biscayne is Miami’s very own Caribbean island.
Dining, entertainment and nightlife
Miami’s cuisine is a vigorous fusion of culinary delights from Cuba, Haiti and Italy and many more. With its spectacular restaurants and clubs, the Art Deco district is hard to beat while Lincoln Road is alive into the small hours with pulsating bars and clubs.
After people-watching on the strip, Miami’s second-favourite pastime is shopping. We recommend you leave a little space in your suitcase for all the things you’ll be bringing home. For one-of a-kind boutiques, art galleries and craft shops, try Lincoln Road Shopping District in the revitalised South Beach. Aventura Mall, north of Miami Beach, is where you’ll find the big names like Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, JCPenney, Sears, as well as 300 other shops and restaurants. At Bal Harbour, you can browse the likes of Gucci, Versace, Tiffany & Co and Saks Fifth Avenue in a tropical garden setting. Meanwhile, Downtown Miami is home to The Bayside Marketplace entertainment and shopping complex.
