Hi there :)
Coming to Miami for 10 nights as of June 3rd. Staying with a family friend for the first 3 nights and then looking for a nice hotel. I have narrowed it down to either the Mondrian or The Hotel of South Beach. These are both completely different obviously & I need some help weighing up the pros & cons...
We enjoy lounging by the pool / beach, having a stroll around the shops, any sporting activities (ie, golf, volleyball, soccer...), eating out, people watching. Our plan for Miami is to do this sort of stuff, but also to enjoy some quiet time, chilling...
Can anyone provide any advice as to which hotel would be most suitable for us?
Mondrian - Are there local restaurants & bars? How far to the beach and Ocean Drive? Is it a safe walk down to the heart of the action? Does the hotel provide cooking facilities? Are there any golf courses nearby? Resort fee / hidden costs??
The Hotel of South Beach - Is this hotel suitable for chilling out at night if we dont want to go out? Are there cheap eateries nearby? Golf courses?
There is a £100 ($150 roughly) difference in price and we are students trying to celebrate our college graduation on a very tight budget so looking for the most bang for our buck!
ANY advice is appreciated... Thanks in advance!! :)
