|Terrible view from our room! :)|
When you visit a new city - the first thing you have to decide is what you want from the trip and that defines where you chose to book a hotel. As I was travelling with my husband who was there for business, we ended up at the Holiday Inn on Biscaynne Way in the city which was one block from the college he was working at during the day. This saved him tremendous travel time and turned out to be a great location for exploring. The discount room had a terrible view of a side roof with the air conditioners on them - the funny part, my husband works in air conditioning!!! :) The hotel was right across from Bayside Market and Park - the central location for the Hop-on Hop-off Tour Bus that proved my best transport during the day.

Also the cafe starts on the porch and goes to the curb.
