With fears of Zika in the rearview and temperatures lowering to more comfortable levels as the northeast freezes over, Miami again has become a premier travel destination across the globe.
This is especially the case on New Year Eve as Miami Beach again paces the nation among the most expensive NYE destinations, followed by Atlantic City and New York City, according to CheapHotels.org.
The study analyzed minimum price points for an overnight stay on December 31, only considering hotels with a rating of three stars or greater in coveted locations. They found Miami Beach’s cheapest room to be $366.
If we take a look at the high-end hotels on the beach (via Hotels.com and checking availability on each hotel’s websites), a last-minute stay at 1 Hotel South Beach starts at an incomprehensible $1,754! The next priciest available options are the Miami Beach Edition for $1175 and the Faena Hotel Miami Beach, which runs you $1029.
