I did rather spontaneous thing yesterday afternoon – or at least, spontaneous for this Type A.
I booked a trip for two to Miami over Memorial Day Weekend! I’ve always been of the belief that you need more than a month to plan and get things in order for a vacation (which is why we finalized everything for our trip to Vegas last month and aren’t traveling until October). But this time around I decided to embrace la vida loca and I’m more than looking forward to a getaway full of bikinis, beautiful beaches and bubbly.
Both in need of a vacation something fierce, Pete and I snagged a few relatively cheap flights to Miami (at least for a holiday weekend), reserved a room at The Thompson and that was that! My friend Nicole’s dreamy photos of the hotel sealed the deal on where we were staying. I mean, how could they not? It also didn’t hurt that readers of Condé Nast Traveler voted it the #1 hotel in Miami last year. Sign me up!
While we’ve both visited a handful of cities in Florida, this will be our first time in Miami. If you’ve been or are local, I’d love your recs on where to eat, drink and explore! Pop a note down in the comments or tweet me if you’ve got all the juicy (and hopefully delicious) details on Miami Beach.
I plan to really let my Type A shine with a packing list – so stay tuned for that!
Update: I recently got word that Thompson Miami Beach is now The Confidante, joining the existing properties in the recently launched The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand. I was excited to hear the hotel won’t be undergoing any major renovations and the lifestyle spirit of the hotel will remain intact, as that was what drew me in when looking for a hotel!
