February is one of the most beautiful weather months and also the most busy season in town so be sure to book a room soon. The Miami International Boat Show, the President's Bank Holiday, and the Coconut Grove Art Fair make South Florida a popular destination starting 16 February 2012.

I would advise finding a room on South Beach so all you need is at your feet or available via a 25 cent shuttle bus.

Geography for 1st time visitors:

Most visitors want to stay on Miami Beach, a city on a barrier island of the same name off the coast of Miami & connected to it by several causeways. "South Beach" is the southernmost 2 miles or so of Miami Beach. It contains the best known beaches, shopping streets, restaurants, clubs, dozens of hotels of varying size, quality, price & ambience and the historic "art deco" district. .

To be in the center of or within walking distance of the center of SoBe you want to stay somewhere below 23d street (address number under 2300) and on or within a block of Washington or Collins Aves., or Ocean drive which are the main north-south avenues on the east (beach) side of the island. You won't need a car. Mot things are in walking distance & there is a 35 cent bus that circles South Beach all day.
