As the metropolitan area continues to expand, hotels in Miami keep springing up all throughout downtown, Miami Beach, Coral Gables, and the surrounding suburbs. All of this is part of the rapid expansion that has seized the area and lured in investors, real estate prospectors, and of course more tourists. Perhaps it's because so much of the city's industry has left town that commerce, retail, and tourism have grown even more prominent and given rise to even more hotels in Miami and its abutting counties.

It's been said that Florida, especially South Florida does two things well and two things only: citrus and sunshine. So long as the weather trends continue as they have for the past several millennia, you can be assured that hotels in Miami won't cease to attract snowbirds from the north, especially from November to April, when the Union states are buried under sheets and sheets of snow. While the occasional hurricane does threaten the hotel chains all along places like Key Biscayne, Miami Beach, Pompano, Fort Lauderdale, and Boca Raton, there's little danger of a nuclear winter demolishing the thriving hospitality trade, so by all means continue booking your vacation.

Choices of Hotels in Miami

Like most major metropolises, Miami is choc-a-bloc with its national chains such as Best Westerns and Days Inns. For under 80 bucks a night, travelers are assured a comfy bed, clean floors and furniture, a warm (or cool) room, and a dependable wake-up call. Any more than that, and you're graduating to the three- to four-star realm, which encompasses some of the exclusive lodgings you see featured on cable channels' travel diaries.

Those willing to go the extra mile might check out place such as the Tides Hotel along Ocean Drive, The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, or the Cardozo Hotel, all of which offer first-rate accommodations for several hundred dollars a night. If that's not enough, there's always "The Donald's" Sonesta Beach resort in Sunny Isles. Trump has laid claim to some 1,000 feet of beach for his luxury escape, which is enough to assuage anyone's pain after they've heard his trademark "You're fired!"
