Saturday Off Day and Miami Hotel Comparison

No workout today, just stretching and a 3-mile walk from the Fontainebleau Hotel to the Setai Hotel - and back - here in Miami Beach. I've been to Miami Beach four times, and twice I stayed at the Setai, once at a friend's house, and then once at the Fontainebleau.

The Setai has a better location because it's closer to Lincoln Road, the touristy area with shops and restaurants. It also has a nicer beach and is much quieter (no nightclub or party atmosphere).

However, the Fontainebleau is like a Vegas hotel minus the casino. Lots of partying, one of the coolest lobby bars in the world, better - and more - restaurants, a much better pool scene, and unfortunately/fortunately, everything that goes with all of these.

For example, there was a large vomit stain outside the elevators on the 4th floor this morning when I went to go for my walk. On the bright side, I slept through the vomiting, as my room was right beside the elevators.

So...where will I stay in the future? Tough call...the gym is better at the FB as well...and there really isn't a big reason to go down to I'll probably be back to the Fontainebleau in the future - IF my work brings me down here again. I don't have any plans to be in Miami again in 2012, but you never know with all the crazy stuff I do.

Just wait until you hear about this trip I have planned for Vegas in April...
