Hotel Resort Fees
What the Miami hotel resort fee includes
Many of the hotels in Miami charge a resort fee. This is an additional fee charged by your hotel for each night you stay there. Be sure to check if the hotel you are looking at includes it in the room rate. The price can vary from $8 to $25 a day and includes extras such as beach chairs and umbrellas, use of the gym and business center, beach towels and even bike rentals.
The expensive resort fees
Townhouse charges a resort fee of 13% of your room rate rather than a set price.

Miami Hotel Tip #2 - If your hotel does not have a pool, the Flamingo Park pool is a hidden gem. And there is also a sandy beach, just a few blocks away.
