Currently trying to pick a hotel. We have been offered the savoy near where the cruise ships come in or grand hotel surfside which is obviously in surfside !! The surfside hotel seems nicer cleaner bigger but s long way from south beach . We have however been told south beach not the best for staying with kids . We are having a 5 day chill out before hitting New York !
The trump towers place in sunny isle ! We can have pretty much any other hotel at a price ! The big ones like Fontenbleau won't confirm interconnecting rooms until check in do they are out . We quite like the idea of a suite for space . The kids fought so much sharing a room Last year we had to split them and have one in with DH while I slept in the kids room !! I'm contemplating the sagamore but the travel agent says it's not a kids hotel !! Feel I have wasted 2 days on the phone and trawling the net !!
I would also look at hotels in the Downtown area of Miami; the area around Bayside (shops and restaurants) is nice. There are daily bus tours out to South Beach or into other parts of Miami like Coconut Grove and Coral Gables.
