The Best Hotels in Downtown Miami

Laine Doss | April 18, 2018

Miami is known for its beautiful weather and cosmopolitan scene. While most vacationers stay on Miami Beach, much can be said about a vacation in Downtown Miami. The neighborhood has become an artistic hub with the opening of the Perez Art Museum (PAMM) and the Frost Science Museum. Downtown Miami is also home to the Miami Heat and the Adrianne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. Wynwood's world-famous graffiti murals and breweries are a short five-minute cab ride away. The Port of Miami, one of the largest cruise ports, is also located in this part of the city. Here are some favorite Downtown Miami Hotels to consider.
