The greater Miami area has about 50,000 hotel rooms, so there’s something for every budget and every taste. Don’t wait to book, however, as our wedding weekend is not only President’s Day but also the Miami International Boat Show!
Miami Beach is the barrier island, and it’s 96 blocks long. We’re getting married near 91st St. The city of Miami is the mainland, just across Biscayne Bay. There’s a bridge at 96th and another at 71st so you can stay either place. Only Miami Beach has, well, the beach, but you can travel to it as it’s public.
Probably best bet is to use https://www.google.com/hotels and input the dates. The wedding is near 91st Street in Miami Beach, if you want to stay nearby. This will enable you to see all the rates and hotels on a map, in Miami and Miami Beach. Below we’ll try to describe some areas so you can choose where to stay if you don’t know the Miami area..
Surfside/Bal Harbour, the area around our wedding venue, is a quieter area for those who want to enjoy the beautiful beach, the boardwalk, and some of the world’s best shopping/window shopping! We have blocked a limited number of rooms for our group at the Sea View Hotel, which is a quiet, older European style hotel directly on the beach. Discounts for these rooms are 15-30% off the published rate, and must be booked by January 18. To reserve a room in the block, call 305-866-4441 or 1-800-447-1010 and mention the “Roney-Sullivan Wedding Group.”

Life moves at a leisurely pace in North Beach, which runs from 60th Street up to the town of Surfside. In this largely residential area, you won’t see the Art Deco buildings that characterize South Beach. Instead, the striking architectural style is Miami Modernism (MiMo) architecture. The broad beach is just as alluring – and chances are you’ll have fewer people with which to share it.

Mid-beach (expect Boat Show traffic delays but heart of that action)
Enjoy a combination of “South Beach cool” and “North Beach calm” in Mid-Beach, a central spot in Miami Beach that offers the best of both its beachfront neighbors. This diverse neighborhood between 24th and 60th streets has swanky hotels, stylish restaurants and lounges, its own arts district and, of course, that famous swath of sand that beckons both visitors and locals.

Undeniably the most touristy and crowded part of Miami Beach, with a mix of people from all over, Art Deco buildings, and endless nightlife, South Beach is one of a kind. LOTS of hotel options.
