Miami is that vibrant city at Florida’s southern tip. An assorted bunch of stuff makes Miami a city that people want to visit. With a reputation for beaches and all things aqua, Miami has, at different times, ranked as the United States’ cleanest city and its richest. In fact, in terms of purchasing power, in 2009 Miami was ranked fifth richest in the whole wide world. Unfortunately for those holiday makers who aren’t that rich, so too does Miami rank fifth in terms of most expensive hotel rooms.
A leader in finance, commerce, culture, media, entertainment, the arts, and international trade, Miami certainly wears the tag “thriving metropolis” quite well. But according to the Bloomberg report to which we refer, the average cost of a hotel room in the city is $245 per night. That is a lot of cash that you could be spending in the city’s many stores, bars, or a million and one other places.
I guess it might be fair to suggest that given the strength of tourism in the city, and the cash splashed around in general, there are going to be some top shelf, luxury hotel suites pushing that average up a bit. A quick scan of TripAdvisor will fill you in on all that. In fact, I no longer care about cash when I look at some of the places on offer in Miami. Forget every negatively tinged word I said about the place, I’m off to Miami!
