I'm looking for a hotel for my trip to Miami and I can't justify paying the high rates to stay in South Beach. I will be having a car to get around Miami, so, I was thinking of staying either in Coral Gables or near the airport, as the airport is not that far from South Beach?
I'm not planning on laying on the beach all day but rather touring the city as well as go shopping and try out nice restaurants. It will be a 2-night stay only.
Also, what's to do in Coral Gables or Coconut Grove? Is it woryh considering a hotel in downtown Miami since I heard there's not much going on there anyway?
Thanks for your help and input.Edited: 02 November 2011, 15:04
