Ready to book at last
At last we have booked-cancelable- all the hotels for our honeymoon and we just need any last minute remarks or objections.
New york: 5 nights Carlton on Madison
Washington DC 4 nights Sofitel on Lafayett sq.
Disneyworld 4 nights caribbean beach
Miami 2 nights Intercontinental

At this moment we can change everything so if there is something you think wrong let us know.

Thanks in advance

effie-nikos, The Carlton is supposedly an absolute stunner of a hotel. Please so a report when you return!

In Miami, why the Intercontinental? If you must be in that downtownish area, book The Mayfair in Coconut Grove is a gorgeous hotel in a great neighborhood.

The Intercontinental is a faceless, personality free huge convention hotel.

I agree with GoTravel...I'd look for something on the Beach, or in the Grove...nothing much to do/see tourist wise in Downtown Miami.

Plus, forgot to add, crime can be pretty bad downtown in some areas at night.

The Caribbean Beach is an OK property, but take a look at either the Yacht Blub or Boardwalk hotels. If you can afford either of these and they're available, they are a bit more upscale. Plus they're right on the Boardwalk and within walking discuss to Epcot.

Thank you all for the replays.We changed Intercontinental with Raleigh in Maimi and left the others as they were.Do you know Raleigh?

Oooh...the Raleigh! I've never stayed there but I absolutely love their pool area. Great location too. Have a great trip!

You will enjoy the Raleigh and Miami Beach MUCH better than the Intercontinental and Downtown....good choice.
