We are 2 families needing 2 pre-nighters. I have heard about the BW Biscayne right near the port but I have just heard about another one on Collins Ave. (4333) in Miami Beach. Their website says all rooms and halls have just been renovated. Has anybody stayed here or know somebody else who has? If so, clean and safe area.
I heard that area is great. I booked my family in the Hilton's Fontainebleau which is near by. I really do not plan on doing much site seeing because I will be with a three year old. I just wanted a hotel that is great for kids and the Hilton seemed great with the Kids water park.
I was told by a local that the area up to around block 21 is okay. After that, block 40 and up is great. So, you are in the right area.
We just stayed there in Nov. They were remodeling Holiday Inn is taking over hotel We stayed in a suite and we loved We were right across the street from BaySide Mall Plenty of stores and eating There was entertainment every night There is a McDonalds and a sub place right behind hotel. Flagler Street is a short walk There is very good discount shopping on Flagler Street.
