Hello all, a new season is close at hand. I hope this is our year for sure. I have a couple questions for anyone who can help me out. I am finally going to a home game after 40yrs!! I live in NJ and go to games up here but am finally making it!! any advice for hotels near the stadium and does anyone know if they do tours there?? Its the bills game in December. Thanks all.
The neighborhood of where Hard Rock Stadium is or Miami Gardens- isn't all too great, I don't recommend staying there. It'd be better to stay near the beach (if you are into that) and just get to the stadium early on game day. If you want to be close to the stadium at all costs- another option to look at is Miami Lakes-but it's really far inland and the only thing there is Shula's Steakhouse.
Hollywood Beach, North Beach (do not confuse with North Miami Beach) in Miami- or even Fort Lauderdale Beach are good options. I absolutely implore you to avoid staying on South Beach-although you may want to see/visit it.
Try an AirBNB- usually a much better deal and way more comfortable than Hotels.
I want add just one more bit: last time I was down that way, I noticed a couple hotels north of the stadium. I believe it might have been the town of Plantation.
Basically, if you take 27th Ave northward from the stadium, cross into Broward County, then the road becomes known as "University Drive." The Dolphins HQ is up that way, in Davie. North of that, I saw a hotel or two in the Plantation are. Nothing fancy or even desirable necessarily, but possibly an option if the Beach area doesn't end up being in your plans. I wish I could remember more specifically, but I just recall when driving around that way "hey I could stay here next time" .
Hopefully more will chime in about this. Have a great time.
