A crash pad will be cheaper. Hotels in MIA are expensive.

The Frontenac is where everyone stays. Including every airline that overnights in MIA (kidding, sort of). It's a dump but the location is great! Although last time I was there they were doing some "remodeling". The biggest problem is it's a solid 30 min drive.

The Sherry is not a bad place. Beach access, nice pool, nice "scenery", $1 beer machine…what more could you want?!

Last time I was there, I was in a very nice room. It looked recently remodeled. Long MIA is one of my favorite overnights.

Mine too. Hopefully they can work thru all the rooms fairly quickly, trust me the old stuff is straight up 1960's!

The workout room is nice as well, plus with all those foreign FAs walking around...I agree the talent is good there.

Sherry's about $90 out the door.
Airport hotels about $70 out the door off season. Jan-Feb weekends it was $200.
