“Party in the city where the heat is on, all night on the beach to the break of dawn”. Yes, I am that basic girl who plays that song on her Snapchat as soon as she lands in Miami. I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care! If you’ve followed me for a while you know Miami is one of my favorite places to getaway and there’s so many hidden gems! So many that I’m going to have to make this Part Two: where to stay. Miami is a little slice of paradise. The food, the culture, the beach, the people, it’s a mini vacation destination that definitely comes with a price. South Beach prices can get up there so I wanted to cover different places I stayed for every kind of budget. Whether you’re getting your girls together for a last minute getaway or you’ve been planning this trip for months I’m sharing a few hotels for every dollar amount.
Ballin’ on a budget? I feel you! There’s been times when I found a great deal on tickets and was just like “F it! Let’s go! I’ll figure where to stay when I get there”. In doing that I found a completely underrated boutique hotel, The Chesterfield. $45 a night and it’s right on Collin’s just stepped away from Ocean Drive. Literally! You’re right where you need to be.$45 dollars got us a huge room with two double beds. It was a mini deluxe suite. Two Huge beds, a full closet, two huge flat screens and not to mention a banging bathroom with a garden tub, standup shower and the most makeup friendly lighting EVER! The Safari Bar was holding happy hour from 4-8 which was perfect! We tipped $20 upfront and 2 drinks later my “hi’s” went to “heeeeeeey” 😂. So if you’re traveling last minute I’d definitely recommend.

Already traveled to South Beach and over the Ocean Drive scene?Head to the Mondrian South Beach Hotel. This waterfront hotel pool is sits on Biscayne Bay. It’s one of my favorite hotels in the entire world! You’re still a quick Uber away from Lincoln Mall, ocean drive, and Downtown but the Mondrian is a “put your phone down” type of hotel. You’ll never leave the Instagram worthy pool! There’s cocktail waitresses ready to serve you Miami’s best pinã coladas, the music gives you all the Ibiza vibes and the view of Biscayne Bay is jaw dropping! Watching the sunset at the Mondrian hotel is so memorable.When you’re not lounging at the pool you can indulge in a much needed spa day. Their South Beach GuyandGirl spa is located conveniently in the hotel and offers a full spa services. Not feeling a deep tissue massage? The Mondrian has the cutest bikes parked out front for free to ride around the city and work off some of last nights cocktails. Average is about $170ish a night  but trust me, once you go it’ll be hard to not go back.
