Have you ever stayed at a Mandarin Hotel? If not, you may want to give it serious consideration. I think once in a lifetime you should treat yourself to a Mandarin Hotel and if this is your "Once", The Mandarin Hotel/ Miami is your hotel. Award-winning? Yes. Luxurious? Absolutely. Committed to exceptional service? Definitely. The Mandarin Oriental provides luxury with oriental charm. The accommodations will please even the most discerning guest.

I have found staying at a boutique hotel is not only easy on the wallet, but it can be fun and exciting. Boutique hotels are a great way to travel the prices can be very pleasing. Depending on the time of your stay, prices will vary, but I found rates to be anywhere from $49.00 per night to $200.00+. Good deals can be had. Miami has many of these boutique hotels to choose from and this link can help you navigate thru them http://www.artdecohotels.com

If you like to be on the edge of what's "Hot" and what's "Happening" South Beach is your kind of place and the Royal Palm Hotel might be your kind of hotel. Take time to relax and enjoy The Palm and all it has to offer. Two pools, one with an ocean view and the other within a few steps from the beach. Have one of their tropical beverages at Sunset and dine on premises with a varied bill of fare. Enjoy people watching and catch a glimpse of a celebrity or two. The Palm is only two blocks from Ocean Drive so if shopping is your bag, Ocean Drive has it all, plus more. With a fashion shoot around every corner, Ocean Drive is the Capital of Cool. What's hot and what's not gets decided daily. Its boutiques at fun and funky, with youthful fashions and unique accessories. Just steps away from Ocean Drive, you'll find the Collins Avenue Fashion District. Big-name designers like Armani, Versace, Nicole Miller, Tommy Hilfiger and Kenneth Cole have all set up shop there.
