This will be my first time going to Miami and i dont know which hotel i should reserve . I want something decent but with a not crazy price and somethinf close to th ebeach.
The Essex House is awesome. It is at 1001 Collins Ave (10th and Collins). It is one block in from Ocean Drive and right next door to the Clevelander. So, you get really easy ocean access, a great restaurant and legendary party spot right next door (you get to use the Clevelander facilities, too), but are removed a little from the crowd and noise. The price is decent and usually around $125 a night.
miami is a big place. where do you want to be. along the beach, near the airport, casinos. there are lots of chain hotels that are about $60 a night for 1-4 person some with breakfast. but you are at a time when everything is becoming expensive, from oct. to mar. prices spikes due to the snow birds, some old people from the north and from canada.
Most visitors want to stay on Miami Beach, a city on a barrier island of the same name off the coast of Miami & connected to it by several causeways. "South Beach" is the southernmost 2 miles or so of Miami Beach. It contains the best known beaches, shopping streets, restaurants, clubs, dozens of hotels of varying size, quality, price & ambience and the historic "art deco" district.
To be in the center of or within walking distance of the center of SoBe you want to stay somewhere below 23d street (address number under 2300) and on or within a block of Washington or Collins Aves., or Ocean drive.
Streets run from 1st on the South all the way to 85th up north. Address numbers follow the streets. Between 1st & 15th Streets Ocean Drive fronts on the Ocean. Above 15th, Ocean Dr. ends and Collins fronts on the Ocean. Hotels with street addresses ending in an odd number are on the Ocean (east) side of Ocean Dr or (above 15th St) Collins Ave (so you walk out the back onto the beach). Hotels with street addresses ending in an even number are on the west side of Ocean Dr. or Collins Ave. and across the street from the beach.
Unfortunately, there are too many hotels to list in the space permitted by YA, so you'll need to search for names/recommendations elsewhere, but at least you'll know how to locate them by address on a map.
