Catalina South Beach This party-hotel standby does have rooms available, but there’s a 3-night minimum. Rates start at $499 a night via Quikbook but also via the hotel directly, and through Expedia.
Whitelaw Hotel One of Catalina’s cousins, the Whitelaw has a 4-night minimum, with rates starting at $399 a night.
The Wave Hotel Rates start at $340, but there’s a 3-night minimum.
The New Hotel and Spa So new, we hadn’t even heard of it. But one TripAdvisor reviewer says it has “10 rooms and Tons on Ambition”. It’s located up near Bal Harbor and has rooms on the Saturday and Sunday night for $379 a night.
Hyatt Regency Bonaventure Rooms start at $319 and there’s availability on the Saturday and Sunday nights, no min-stay required.
The Standard Miami Rooms available from $649 a night on both the Saturday and Sunday nights.
Don’t forget: those rooms that are still available are selling out fast (properties that had rooms yesterday did not when we checked this morning), and many require 3 or 4-night minimum stays. Also, Miami and Fort Lauderdale will host the biggest parties, but there are other hotels still available further north. Anything in Deerfield Beach, Pompano Beach, and Lauderdale-by-the-Sea will still put you in a good position to get to the game.
