Default Miami International Boat Show 2011

This will be my first time for the Miami show, can someone give me some suggestions on where to stay? We're thinking either a nice hotel near the show or maybe a resort type place on the beach. Any and all suggestions will be much appreciated. Thanks!

been there 18 years now!!! tons of places on Collins & Ocean in south beach area!! 4 me all I need is a decent room but don't need the frills, usually out almost all day & into the night! I usually stay close enough 2 the convention center 2 walk cuz I don't rent a car, parking is usually a ***** & traffic is about the same!! walk or grab a cab esp. if out at night!!!! good luck!! It's fun!!

The Fairwinds is very reasonable ratewise, nice rooms, a little dated though. The bar and restaurant is open-air. Parking across the street at the Essex garage. You do NOT want to park on the street! Located at 10th and Collins right behind the Clevelander hotel which is pricier but that's where OSO used to have its parties. Two blocks west you can grab the shuttle to the show and also a taxi to the in-water venue.

Great location and Ocean Drive is two blocks east for lots of bars and restaurants.

The Delano is the closest oceanfront hotel to the convention center but it was $1,000 a night when I stayed there in 06. The year before I stayed at the Biltmore in Coral Gables and had a great weekend but the cab ride to South Beach wasn't cheap! Biltmore is a fantastic resort but miles from the beach!

Wherever you choose to stay, book early! Also, don't be surprised: It seams everybody jacks up the rack rate during the MBS.
