Also worth noting this year is the introduction of Miami Spice Hotel Packages and other special offers. Such as:
At the EPIC Hotel, the Miami Spice Package secures you a room on a Club Level from $222 a night, parking, plus a $70 Miami Spice dinner credit at the hotel's restaurant, Area 31.
Also downtown, at the Mandarin Oriental, the Miami Spice Celebration package is for two nights accommodation, American breakfast daily, and either the Miami Spice dinner at Azul, or Miami Spice lunch or dinner at Café Sambal on the water. It starts at $274 a night.

UPDATE: If you're salivating after reading this post, you'll be pleased to know that one of the Gansevoort's big splashy restaurants, Philippe, got a head start and began offering its Miami Spice menu early last night. Bonus: it's available Saturday nights.
