South Beach and the hotels down there are overpriced, IMO. Nevertheless, we'll have a South Beach tour featured next week.

What's your thoughts on overpriced? 

I went down for the Orange Bowl and pretty much every 'average' hotels (Motel 6, Comfort Inn, Etc....) were $275/night and up.  The other mid-level-ish (Clarion, Embassy Suites) were in the $400/ night range. 

Some of us aren't smart enough to make reservations, lol, and we're the ones who end up staying at one of the beach 'resort' hotels in Deerfield Beach on a last minute Travelocity Surprise deal that ended up being a great part of a really fun trip.  ;D

^I benefit from having a close family member who works for Marriott.  Typically, I can stay at nearly any Marriott chain for less than $50/night. It's made travel real affordable for me, which is probably why I travel so much. Granted my view is tainted (I can usually find something for $39 or $45/night in most cities), once I'm over $100/night WITH the discount, it's the world of overpricing to me. Two weeks ago, the cheapest thing I could find that wasn't 20 miles out was a Courtyard in DT for $129/night. The South Beach stuff was a little over $200.

Over priced like we said, I have friends down there now, so I stay with them. Great city to party and sight see.

By the way,in my post above I primarily referenced Miami Beach.

Growing up in vibrant, center- of- the- universe Miami,Downtown per se was never a discussion point. It was there. Amidst sprawl era.

Just as Jacksonville,only 2.583 decades later.
