Best South Miami Beach Hotels

Find here some of the best South Beach Hotels based on your needs and desires, but you must first think of what those are, so despite the fact that you are coming here for business or pleasure you should ask yourself: Do I want to be in a luxury oceanfront hotel? A party hotel? An oceanfront party hotel? A hotel centrally located to all there is to see and do in South Beach? An oceanfront hotel centrally located? How about a luxury oceanfront party hotel centrally located?... or simply a nice hotel out of the craziness, family oriented? Oceanfront, maybe? Not to far from it all? Or simply the cheapest place around? Do I want to, or am I willing to share a room with a few others at a hostel on Ocean Drive or near the fun areas?...

Ok, here is a quick rundown of the best areas where you might want to find a hotel at, in South Miami Beach, considering the 3 scenarios below and assuming their hotel rates meet your budget:

1) Beachfront with direct access to the beach and low noise outside (not quiet), but still fairly close to the busiest areas. Find these at south of 5th street on Ocean Drive.

2) Beach & ocean view (not oceanfront) at busiest area in South Beach, surrounded by lots of action, partying and entertainment, but with mid-high noise. Find these at mid Ocean Drive (between 5th and 12th street).

3) Central location to the best areas, beachfront and direct access to the beach, but with mid-level noise outside. Find these on Collins Avenue between 15th and 18th Street. Read more about all three scenarios below...

OCEAN DRIVE HOTELS: A 15 blocks long road that goes along the beach and where you find the most active area of South Miami Beach (Blocks 5 to about 12) and where you can find a hotel for scenario #2 above. All of these hotels are facing Lummus Beach Park (what makes the beach and the strip seem like one place and not two) and overlook the beach and the Atlantic ocean from a second floor or higher.

Between blocks 1 and 5 of Ocean Drive is where you can find a hotel for scenario #1, There you have hotels like the "Hilton Bentley", "Marriott" and the "The Savoy", all three are in the middle of cool and fun restaurants like Devito, Taverna Opa, Prime 112 Nikki Beach (also a nightclub and lounge).

COLLINS AVENUE HOTELS: The 2nd avenue closest to the ocean, but only for the first 14blocks, from 15 street and up all hotels on the east-side of Collins Avenue are oceanfront, and to find a hotel as per scenario #3 centrally located at the middle of it all, with an oceanfront, right on the sand and with direct access to the beach, then you would want to stay between 15th and 18th Street on Collins Avenue (on the east-side). The main hotels there are "Ritz Carlton", "Royal Palm", "Delano" and "Lowes".

WASHINGTON AVENUE HOTELS: A 22 blocks long avenue and is the third from the ocean, loaded with almost as much action as ocean drive.

LINCOLN ROAD: No cars here just walking, with lots of shopping and outdoors seating restaurants. It is the second most alive street during the day in Miami Beach.
