Best hotels in Miami and the keys?

Hi all, sorry if this is a bit off topic but as a 335i driver I hope I can count on a bit of advice?

I'll be over for 2 weeks later this year with a week in the keys and Miami. Any advice on the best hotels and what to see would be much appreciated. Will have wife and kids with me so nothing too crazy!

Thanks in advance

One of the best hotels in miami is the mandarin oriental, expensive but worth every penny. A cheaper alternative is the Loews in south beach, very nice hotel and not too expensive.

The best hotels in the keys are


1. Key largo----The chica lodge 4 star hotel (its very nice i stayed their a couple nights)

2. Key west----The casa marina ( i think the waldorf owns the hotel) its a amazing hotel and worth every dollar


for miami i would suggest the fountain blue it just got through a multi million dollar renovation and it turned out great.

+1.. I've stayed at both, and with wife and kids, the Loews may be a better bet

Man your gona love the keys. Check out the "conch republic seafood company" by the pier/boat docks. Also hit up all the bars like sloppy Joe's etc... Also take a day trip out to Fort Jefferson. If youre in to diving make sure to dive in Key Largo (you won't be disappointed) On your way down or back up stop in Marathon at the "Island Fish Company"
I am trying to move back home to the keys from Germany later this year but can't find a job down there. Have fun
