Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 26, 2012
Winter is typically a time for down jackets and warm boots, but this winter more travelers are opting for a warmer climate. According to AAA, as reported by The Miami Herald, the number of winter vacationers is expected to be approximately 4.8 million. This is a 1.3 percent increase over 2011. Bright Lights Business is excited for Miami’s hospitality industry and would like to present their favorite South Florida Hotels.
As the Miami Herald points out the increase in visitors can be attributed to Christmas and New Years falling on a Tuesday and allowing for extended travel weekends. The Herald also notes that the college football national championship will draw a large crowd to Miami as well. BLB agrees and adds that the tropical weather is also a draw for many. So what are the best hotels in South Florida?
One great hotel to sit back and soak up the Miami sunshine is The James Royal Palm in South Beach. The James is a posh, newly rebuilt beachfront retreat with a rich history. Forbes Magazine named The James Royal Palm on its “Top 10 Most Anticipated Openings of 2012.” BLB also loves the hotel’s nightlife hotspot SL Miami. SL Miami is Mark Birnbaum’s second such club and combines elements of the New York original with Miami flare.
Another one of BLB’s hotel picks is the Shore Club in South Beach. This recently refurbished hotel has a fresh modern vibe. With lush gardens and white sandy beach accessible directly from the infinity edge pool area the Shore Club is an easy pick for BLB. Another reason Bright Lights Business loves the Shore Club is the four separate garden bars that make up their Skybar. Skybar is a stylish hang-out any time of day.
BLB is happy for the boost in tourism this winter in Miami. Although, there are many great hotel choices in South Florida BLB hopes to help narrow the list with their top picks.
