Staying in Miami
Endless big city sights in Downtown
The southernmost metropolitan city in the contiguous United States, Miami is Florida's hot pocket where North and Latin American cultures mingle on the golden beachfront. Frequented by suits and street vendors alike, Downtown Miami is a vibrant mix of sights and sounds.
To be within arm's reach of the historic district, iconic jazz-era skyscrapers and more, settle into your Miami accommodation at the 5-star InterContinental overlooking Biscayne Bay, the Hyatt Regency or the ultra-modern Hotel Beaux Arts by the Marriott group. Across Miami River in "buttoned-up" Brickell, hotels cater to the financial district's business crowd, with luxury offerings from the Mandarin Oriental, Conrad Miami and Viceroy.
Discovering Miami's wonderful west
As the so-called "cruise capital of the world", Miami sees its fair share of visitors come and go. Just west of the CBD, Little Havanna is one attraction that never fails to disappoint culture-seekers. Spanish language swirls through the streets, where you are guaranteed to find a unique memento at a Latin shop in between treating your tastebuds to authentic Cuban cuisine.
Miami International Airport is also located in the city's west, surrounded by accommodation choices from Sheraton, Hyatt, Holiday Inn and Hilton. Book your stay along Northwest 36th Street and you will be in the prime position to enjoy Miami's west side charms.
Making waves at Miami Beach
Technically its own city, not just a splay of sand, Miami Beach lies off the mainland on Barrier Island and is joined to Miami proper via a number of causeways. Paving the way for beach resort towns from its early days, Miami Beach is stocked full of designer boutiques, international restaurants and a bounty of beach-front hotels.
In South Beach, decked in Art Deco architecture and stylish bars, stay at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton, King & Grove Tides or the Beacon Hotel. In the slightly more subdued Mid and North Beach, you may choose to lodge along the foreshore at Four Points by Sheraton or the Best Western Oceanfront.
