Miami International Boat Show & Strictly Sail

South Beach Hotels

Once the Miami International Boat Show rolls into Miami Beach every February, scoring a hotel room, a rental car or a table reservation for a great restaurant becomes a very big deal. This is because the show, which spans three separate locations in Miami and Miami Beach (the Miami Beach Convention Center, the Sea Isle Marina and Miamarina at Bayside Marketplace), is arguably the greatest boat show in the world, attracting thousands of spectators, 2,000 exhibitors and over 3,000 boats! There’s no better place to preview the new boating season.

The 5-day event is a treat for serious boaters and curious landlubbers who can get up close and personal with the latest powerboats, sleek sailboats, celebrity-style yachts and all the electronics and nautical accessories that go along with them. Beyond the actual watercraft, the show features informative seminars on sport fishing, water safety, SCUBA diving, and travel.

Sailors gravitate to the marinas in Downtown Miami where the Strictly Sail show focuses on sailboats, sailing gear and accessories. Guests can attend daily sailing seminars, enjoy free sailboat rides and programs designed to teach children about boats and boat building. Dedicated shuttle busses and water taxis are available at all three sites to make it easy to navigate Miami’s busy streets and see all the show sites without the hassle of finding a place to park. Tickets can be purchased online or at the show gates and include free access to all exhibits and shuttles. Group discounts are available and kids 15 and under get in free.

All in all, this year’s show is expected to dazzle and delight, and Z Ocean Hotel puts you just 5 blocks from the Miami Beach Convention Center. A luxury Miami Beach Hotel, Z Ocean is a fantastic destination that puts you in the heart of South Beach, between Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue. Our distinct Art Deco-inspired building, designed by the acclaimed Arquitectonica group, sets us apart from many other South Beach Hotels. We offer 79 exclusive units that are far larger and more lavishly appointed than the typical Miami Beach Hotel rooms, with rooftop terraces. Our boutique hotel offers intimate, exclusive setting and wide array of resort-style services, including guest-only oceanfront service, dining options, spa treatments, professional concierge, and more.

Get Revved for Bike Week, Coming Soon!

South Beach Hotel

South Beach Bike Week is one of Miami’s coolest events, bringing motorcycle enthusiasts together for three days of contests, parties, and a little debauchery! The young event, first launched in August of 2013, enables avid and novice bike fans to get together and compare machines, check out new products, and engage in the kind of fun only South Beach can afford.

This year’s bikeweek will be bigger and better than last year as they welcome the “South Beach Bike Week Biker Village”, located between 8st & 10st in the world famous Ocean Drive. The “South Beach Biker Village” is free and open to the public, and will host all the Bike Shows, Contests, Concerts, Entertainment, Vendors, Food, Bars, and more!

This year’s motorcycle contest categories include: “Best Custom Bike,” “Best Street Bike,” “Best Vintage Bike,” and “Baddest Bagger.” Those shiny metal monsters aren’t the only bodies you are going to be able to check out- this year’s South Beach Bike Week will have a Tattoo contest, Bikini contest, and the Ms. 2014 South Beach Bike Week contest.

You can bet that as one of the party capitals of the world, South Beach will have all the dancers, live bands, DJ’s, and entertainers you will ever need at this event. And that’s just in the daytime. Once the “Biker Village” closes for the night, the party continues at some of the top bars and nightclubs in South Beach. Everyone will receive special offers with a “Biker Village” wristband, and will be invited to the “Offical AfterParty” venue once it is all over.

If you’re visiting South Beach, hammer down to Z Ocean Hotel for the best stay in Miami. Flaunting a direct, waterfront location in the vibrant South Beach, Z Ocean Hotel puts you within minutes of the action. Our Miami Beach Hotel is an architectural gem that opens out onto both Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue, striking a new balance of service and style. The vivacious energy of South Beach, merged with the refinement of IHG Hotels, takes shape in 79 indulgent guest suites, all of which spill out onto spacious private balconies.
