Quarzo seems to combine the experience of staying in a luxury hotel with a vacation apartment, as the suites have kitchens stocked with plates and silverware, dishwashers and microwaves, and some even have separate dining rooms.
The price tag also sounds family-friendly--we found rooms for this weekend starting at $209 a night for a Junior Suite with two queen beds or $329 a night for a 2-Bedroom Master Suite with an ocean view.
Try and find that down on Miami Beach and you're looking at 500 bucks or more. We hate to sound like nannas, but we could do with a break from the South Beach hustle every now and then. And we know what to do with that $200-300 we could save by staying further north--Bal Harbour Shops, here we come!
