The South Florida Business Journal has ranked hotels by total guest rooms and judging by the #s, it looks like the economy is doing very well for tourists and business travelers alike.
#1 is the Fontainebleau Miami Beach on mid-Beach, the iconic 1954-built Ted Lapidus Art Deco hotel that draws visitors from all over the world to its 1504 rooms.
Ranking #4 is the Loews Miami Beach Hotel with 790 rooms located at 16th and Collins Avenue.
Other Miami area hotels include:
* InterContinental Miami with 641 rooms
* Hyatt Regency Miami with 612 rooms
* Hilton Miami with 527 rooms
*Hilton Miami Airport with 508 rooms
*The Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne with 490 rooms
*Eden Roc Miami Beach with 415 rooms
* Kimpton Epic Hotel in Miami with 411 rooms
*Sheraton Miami Airport Hotel with 405 rooms
* The Ritz Carlton South Beach with 375 rooms
*W South Beach Hotel with 351 rooms
*Doubletree Hilton Miami Airport & Convention Center with 334 rooms
When the Miami Beach Convention Center is finished, I imagine we can promote local smaller boutique hotels in the surrounding area.
