And was I disappointed? NO! In fact, it's a resounding 'no'! I found a great new hotel - the Atton Brickell in a great up-and-coming neighbourhood - Brickell. The hotel was a steal - I only paid £120 (which is $150) for a fabulous double room for the night. Everything was brand new and the bed was DIVINE. It was the best night's sleep I'd had in ages.
The hotel doesn't look much from the outside:
But on the inside it's fabulous. And best of all, on the 12th floor there's a rooftop pool to die for:
Not only is there a huge (and nice) Publix supermarket literally opposite (to stock up on provisions for breakfast if you don't want to have it at the hotel etc) the hotel is also brilliantly situated for seeing Miami. It's close to the beach, to shopping, to Little Havana (famous for it's Cuban culture) and it's so much cheaper than its much pricier neighbour, Miami Beach. And no less vibrant for it.
I was so excited by this find that I had to share it with you - and if you want to see more about my trip then check out this short and colourful video: https://youtu.be/HXRIaHKISpI
Happy viewing and if you go to Miami then happy travelling too!
