So far, we've reviewed two of the hotels featured in our "6 Miami Hotels Under $200" guide. And while we enjoyed our time at Cadet Hotel slightly more than Clinton South Beach, we also got to take a look at the new Hampton Inn & Suites Miami Brickell, a simple but tasteful mid-range joint right in the heart of downtown Miami.
Hampton Inn & Suites officially opened in October 2011, but it's still making waves as the city's first LEED-certified hotel, and ranks pretty high on TripAdvisor. And though there about a billion eco-friendly reasons to like the hotel (35,000 gallon rainwater cistern, electric vehicle charging stations, low-flow water fixtures, biodegradable cups and plates), what we found most appealing was the hotel's cool art collection (see above) and its efficient use of space.
Check-in: The hotel is incredibly easy to get to. Though it's not recommended, we relied solely on public transportation getting there from Miami Airport, and we walked from the Brickell Metromover station to the hotel in two minutes.
After showing up around 7pm, the hotel was helpful, professional, and very welcoming. As usual, we made sure to request a high-up floor, and the Front Desk clerk offered room 1405, a Standard King near the top of the building. And after informing us about the complimentary breakfast the next morning (wahoo!), they handed over our key and sent us on our way.

With the Super Bowl just around the corner, Bud Light is gearing up for their annual hotel takeover. Now in its third year, the four-day-long, beer-fueled fiesta will be taking place at Hampton Inn Indianapolis Downtown Circle Center, and yes, the Playboy Party will still be happening.
Unlike the previous two years, Bud Light wants to hire an official Hotel Correspondent to keep track of social media for this year's event—plus conduct red carpet interviews, star in YouTube videos and liaise between the hotel partiers and those following the debauchery online from other parts of the country.
The perks of this so-called "job" (yes, this is an actual salaried position) include a free hotel stay and as much beer as you can handle. Interested? See below for instructions on how to apply!

Here's one question from a reader whose daughter begins at NYU this fall:
"Since you have the inside NY Hotel scoop, do you know where to find any of the good promotional codes for the hotels you suggested? Also is it better to book on-line or call and negotiate since I will be [in NYC] 7 nights. Lastly, if I wanted to stay right by NYU - Washington Sq, where would you recommend?
