Some of last year's Basel-related public art, near the W South Beach and The Setai.

Last week, we gave you some hot hotel-Art Basel event dates to jot down in your calendar. Today, we look at where you might be able to sleep, after all that gallery-hopping and partying. Of course, if you haven't booked yet, your chances of snagging a sweet stay are slim. But here are our top picks from what's still available.

Intercontinental Hotel Miami: Yes, it's downtown, but don't forget, this is where you can hang with Andy Warhol (er, photos) and it's also close to some other downtown artsy hotel action, at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami and the Mandarin Oriental Miami.
How much? Expedia has a special rate of $299 a night.

Sonesta Bayfront Coconut Grove: Another Expedia special, this one means staying away from the South Beach/Design District/Downtown action--but at a time as crazy as this, that could be a good thing. (Read: peace). Plus, there's free WiFi.
How much? $239 a night, via Expedia.

Townhouse Hotel: Back on the beach, you can get the intimate, boutique hotel experience--in a great location, with a great sushi bar, BONDST Lounge--at the Townhouse, which still flies a teensy bit under the radar.
How much? Quikbook is listing it at $395 a night (cheaper than its neighbors). Plus, you get a free Parisian breakfast.

The Shore Club: Another hotel that doesn't get near as much buzz as it a) used to or b) as its sister properties. But its Art Basel rate isn't that far off the regular rates at Delano and other Collins Ave stalwarts, and this will be home to its own art-party scene, thanks to the Mallick Williams Gallery taking over Skybar.
How much? $410 a night, if you book via Quikbook.

The Whitelaw Hotel: Situate yourself right in the middle of the South Beach action. It may get noisy, but at least your room will be all pretty-in-pink-and-white as you lay there recounting the night you had and the cute conceptual artist you met.
How much? $259 a night.
