Miami:

I would choose Madrid. At the Puerta del Sol they have a huge celebration before midnight with plenty of entertainment before midnight. Just before midnight (12 seconds to midnight) they eat one grape for every second. This is supposed to bring good luck for the New Year. This is televised by all the TV stations, so you can also see it in your hotel room.

Madrid also has good Christmas lights on the streets, such as at Calle Serrano.

Downtown is the Gran Via, with many hotels, restaurants and stores. Use venere.com to screen for hotels in the area.

Just stay in on NYE it is the worst night of the year to go out.

Granada is not good because many places have a cotillon which means that you pay a fixed price and eat and drink as much as you like so the majority of places to go out are effectively closed.

Go to bed with a good book and a cup of cocoa.

I have spent NYE in Sevilla and Granada.

If you like being in crowds, being pushed and jostled with fireworks whistling past your ears any one of the 3 would be fine.

Granada and Sevilla are much more interesting places to visit than Madrid.
