It was time for another trip to Miami. Unfortunately during the worst time of the year. Hurricane season is in full swing and the temperatures and humidity are skyrocketing. Not the best time of the year to visit the area. However, I had no other choice as I was going there for business and not pleasure. As you may know, I am a fan of the Hyatt brand. The always treated me fair and are flexible enough to go with my crazy work schedules. I searched for hotels in the Miami or Miami Beach area, preferably one in which I haven’t stayed yet. To my advantage, hotel prices are way down that time of the year, as high season is during the “winter” time in southern Florida. The Hyatt Centric South Beach Miami had a decent rate displayed. But best of all was the AAA Hot Deal offer which would include free valet parking at the hotel. The hotel only offers valet parking and would normally charge $40 + tax per night. Another bonus as World of Hyatt Globalist was that the resort fee of $24 + tax per day got waived and free breakfast is included as well.
The resort fee includes:
- Premium internet access
- Two beach chairs and towels
- Two welcome bottles of water
- Use of hotel bikes
- World Cinema in-room Bluetooth
- Access to the fitness center at Exhale South Beach (across the street from the hotel)
- Daily newspaper
Together these are savings of $64 dollars per day (tax not included) I could spend elsewhere, like dinner or shopping.
