Where to stay in Miami

Whether you’re after a quiet retreat or the excitement of South Beach, deciding where to stay in Miami is all about the experience you hope to enjoy. The city features a range of accommodation precincts each boasting their own unique character and enduring charm. South Beach is home to all the action, Miami Beach offers spectacular beachside convenience, and Downtown is a place to enjoy the modern convenience of this thriving city. A little farther afield, Coral Gables and Coconut Grove offer a more relaxed feel that’s still within easy reach of the city.

Miami beach view

South Beach

If you're looking for a central location in the heart of the action, South Beach offers one of the best areas to stay in Miami. With a host of accommodation options available, this location provides you with direct access to dining, the favoured shopping strips of Lincoln Road and Ocean Drive, and the hustle and bustle of iconic South Beach.

Coconut Grove

Funky, laidback and offering great access to local restaurants and shopping, Coconut Grove is a more relaxed and affordable option than the heart of Miami. This destination is about a 20-minute bus ride from Downtown but includes great shopping, elegant motels, and easy access to the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens and the Miami Science Centre. 

Downtown Miami

Downtown Miami offers a wealth of choice when it comes to places to stay in Miami. This area houses some of the biggest names in the accommodation industry with rates that are more budget-friendly than South Beach. Best of all, the central location provides ready access to all the major tourist destinations like Wynwood and Miami Seaquarium. 

Miami Beach

If you're after ocean views, spectacular sunrises and idyllic beaches, Miami Beach has a host of accommodation options to suit all budgets and tastes. The area features large-scale beachfront resorts, historic Art Deco hotels, and self-contained apartments. This region also sees you close to all the action of South Beach but with less of a premium price tag. 

Coral Gables

Featuring luxurious resorts and boutique hotels, Coral Gables positions you in the heart of Miami arts and culture. This picturesque part of the city has a historical feel that harks back to Miami's 1920s heyday. Spend a day basking in the famous Coral Gables Venetian Pool or shopping to your heart's content at a destination that's within 20 minutes' drive from Downtown Miami.
