Default Miami Boat Show

Can anyone tell me a great place to stay for the boat show? I figured since I am shopping,, I might as well go to the grand-daddy of all the shows.

Thanks

Do NOT stay at the Ritz Plaza!!!!!!!!

It's roach-infested, difficult to get them to do anything for you, and rude as hell. They also sunk, scratched and dirtied my brand-new, 5-day old F-250!

And you'll need a translator to get service.

Yeah........you guys head over to the RIU, because that way the hotel we like in South Beach won't be over booked. What does the RIU stand for? I guess you could ask Sy Goldberg, but I think it stands for Resting Intoxicated Underprivileged.
