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 too 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...
