Miami might seem like a daunting urbanized city where a fast-paced street scene meets an equally busy beach and seafront. However, this doesn’t have to be the case for the holiday maker, especially if you decide to stay in the North Bay Village. This is an area that consists of two islands and offers brilliant bars, international restaurants and sublime views. Here are two excellent hotels in the North Bay village area, as seen on Hipmunk. You can really relax here at either the Best Western on the Bay or the Eloquence on the Bay hotels.

The Best Western on the Bay is most people’s choice when deciding where to stay in the North Bay Village. This is the site of one of Miami’s famous restaurants, Shuckers Bar and Grill, so you can experience the best grilled chicken wings in the city without having to venture too far. The hotel has a heated swimming pool, a fitness room, and a business center. The hotel also offers a convenient shuttle to Miami Airport if you are flying in or out. Boats can be docked in the marina on the bay for an overnight charge, and the hotel also welcomes bikers. Parking is available on site and Wi-Fi comes as standard.
The Best Western On the Bay Inn and Marina has a diverse range of rooms available, from standard rooms to luxury suites for solo travelers, couples, and families. The west building has rooms with private balconies overlooking the bay. The nearby area offers tremendous views for sunset and a range of bars with ice-cold beers and sumptuous cocktails never in short supply. A full continental breakfast is included in the room price.

Eloquence on the Bay is an elegant retreat overlooking the bay. It is also on one of the islands in the North Bay village and is only a mile from Miami Beach.The resort offers self-catering options and spacious rooms with balconies in a huge complex. Rooms are air-conditioned with modern, clean facilities.
Internet is available, and there are also fully equipped kitchens in the rooms. The accommodation includes access to a private swimming pool, a fitness center, and tennis courts. There is no breakfast included, but there are certainly no shortage of options nearby. The resort is in a prominent location with the best restaurants in North Bay Village being a short walk or drive. All rooms include a CD player, television, and a DVD player. As with the Best Western on the Bay, views here for sunset are magnificent.
These two places to stay are highly recommended for anyone heading to Miami who wants to avoid the more crowded hotels near the beach and the downtown area.
