Finding the best deal on a luxury hotel in Miami Beach depends on what you plan to do while in town and how long you intend to stay. If you’re flying in for 1-2 days, you might enjoy splashing out in an upscale hotel. However, eating out and high-priced hotels add up if you plan to stay longer.
A Winter Break and Remote Working
Unlike many other cities, Miami doesn’t generally experience a slow season. Although the middle of winter might not see the beaches as packed as in milder months, you can still wear shorts and T-shirts year-round. So, staying for a week or longer amid an icy winter in more northern states is a good break. When that’s the case, you probably won’t want to eat out every day or visit tourist attractions too. Remote working has seen more people visit Miami, where they can work during the day, make their own food, take a leisurely beachside stroll in the evenings, or visit a restaurant. In this scenario, the options decrease. Self-catering in an Airbnb condo is an option, but many don’t come with the luxuries or location of a top-notch hotel, which might make you feel that you’re not on vacation.
Why The Fontainebleau Makes Sense
Staying at the Fontainebleau makes perfect sense if you’re after a great deal at a luxury hotel in Miami Beach. The option to book a suite with a kitchen or kitchenette gives guests the option to self-cater, thus reducing their overall expenses. Also, when booking one of our suites through a popular platform such as Airbnb, we can offer significantly reduced rates compared to similar suites at other luxury hotels. This is because we are dealing with the private owner of the suites directly and not the resort. It allows us to negotiate great deals based on the volume of bookings we bring.
All The Amenities Without the Expense
Booking outside of the resort doesn’t mean sacrificing any of the amenities the resort has to offer, such as the numerous restaurants and swimming pools. There’s also direct beach access, which means savings on cabs and lounge chairs.
There are also dozens of things to do within walking distance of the Fontainebleau. Here are some of the most popular according to tripadvisor.com
Miami Beach Boardwalk: 6 minutes on foot from the Fontainebleau. This is ideal for a stroll, any time of the day or night. People watch, hear the waves, taste the salty air, and enjoy the lush vegetation.
Broken Shaker at Freehand Miami: A 19-minute walk from the Fontainebleau, this offer something a little different than you’ll find in a standard cocktail bar. The Broken Shaker’s handcrafted cocktails, which won Tales of Cocktail’s Best American Hotel Bar, are unlikely anything you’ll taste elsewhere. They’re composed of elixirs, syrups, infusions made from garden herbs and spice, fresh-pressed produce, and exotic ingredients from around the world. Walking there might be easy enough, but you’ll probably want to take a taxi back!
Miami Food Tours: The 2-mile walk from the Fontainebleau is worth taking to work up an appetite from this culinary smorgasbord that takes in American, Cuban, French, Haitian, Italian, Mediterranean, and Peruvian cuisines in Miami’s historic and scenic Art Deco District.
New World Symphony: 1.9 miles from the Fontainebleau, it’s worth taking on board some culture and class at America’s Orchestral Academy’s impressive $160 million building with an attached garage in a 2.5-acre park at the corner of 17th Street and Washington Avenue in Miami Beach.
The Well Lounge: a 10-minute walk, this sexy, dimly lit, chic, and cozy bolt hole is a great place to chill out before visiting the Forge Restaurant and Wine Bar next door at 444 41st St.
Art Basel: Yes, the world-famous Art Basel is only a 1.7-mile stroll from the Fontainebleau. Located at the Miami Beach Convention Center, their annual Miami art fair serves as a gathering for the international art world.
A search of luxury hotels on most respected booking platforms will show the majority of one-night stays to be in the $400-$550 range. Our condos that can sleep up to four guests are considerably less because of our unique relationships with the owners of these exquisite units. In addition, we have suites with and without kitchens and kitchenettes at similarly discounted prices compared to our competition. With 15 years of experience, we have perfected the art of short-term hospitality as our reviews as “Superhost” status shows.
