Of course, many of Miami’s boutique and luxury properties are offering Art Basel packages and promotions, which we’ll take a look at all this week on HotelChatter. The Art Basel organizers are also helping art-lovers by working with an agency, Turon Travel, which has secured special rates at a long list of participating hotels. Their preferred hotels, however are The Shore Club, the Delano, and the Mondrian South Beach. For those with plenty of cash to splash around on paintings, installations, and fancy hotel rooms, Turon Travel is offering “Special Premium Hotel Packages” at the Fontainebleau, Doubletree Surfcomber, Z Ocean Hotel, Hyatt Regency Miami, and the Mandarin Oriental.
The Fontainebleau starts at $199 a night through this Premium Package—but that’s for a 7-night stay. (It’s $289 a night for a 3–4 night stay.) That’s a deal when compared to booking through the Fontainebleau directly—a standard room starts at $429 a night for Art Basel dates—but comparable to good old Expedia, which has Fontainebleau rooms for Dec 3–6 at $286 a night.
Stay tuned for more Art Basel hotel news this week, and if you’re heading to Miami for the show, please send us your tips and let us know where you’ll be resting your head after days and nights spent trawling galleries and art parties.
