The Miami area has a huge range of hotel choices extending from tiny B&Bs and boutiques to full-scale resorts, beachfront high-rises and major chain hotels. It's a popular destination all year round, particularly for cruise ship passengers (Miami is one of the most heavily trafficked cruise ports in the world), so it's best to make reservations well ahead of time -- especially during the winter high season. The hippest place to stay is South Beach, where many older hotels have been renovated into upscale boutique properties and you'll be within walking distance of the beach. More affordable choices are a little farther north in Miami Beach; another way to save is to choose a property without an ocean view.
