Hello friends! Looking for some insight in Miami. I’m planning a trip there for the first week of November and will be attending the Miami Seed Food and Wine Festival. There is not a lot of details on where the events are happening, but several mention Regatta Park/Coconut Grove. I’m trying to figure out where to target for a place to stay. I have a bunch of Marriott and Amex points I would like to try to use but no special standing. Would appreciate any recommendations!

No recs but reading it really quickly I thought you said it was the Miami seed and weed festival. Sounded interesting for a minute.

LOL! I would probably go to that too!

Never heard of this festival but sounds cool! There should be hotels in Coconut Grove if you want to stay near the festival. It’s a pretty pedestrian friendly area. It’s also a close drive to Brickell, downtown, Key Biscayne, and Coral Gables if you want to explore those areas.

Thanks SA1!

You’ll be in Miami, so you’ll be renting a car, right? I’d stay in South Beach for the full Miami experience.

Thanks very much- really appreciate the information.
