In the middle of suburbia, about 14 miles northwest of downtown Miami and near the Miami Dolphins' Sun Life Stadium, this comfortable hotel and golf club is geared toward sports enthusiasts, namely those looking to experience the par-72 senator (renovated in 2013) and par-3 executive courses. Rooms have sports prints, and a shuttle runs between the two hotel wings and all around the 500-acre property. If you're not teeing off, you can work out or play tennis in the 40,000-square-foot
athletic club. Need to fortify yourself with some protein? Don Shula's Steak House serves hefty cuts of prime beef in an atmosphere that can best be described as "football elegant."
