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.

Miami is a World Capital for Concerts and Music Events

South Beach Hotel, Z Ocean South Beach

Miami is a place that needs little introduction. One of the most famous resort cities in the world, it attracts millions of tourists every year to its pristine beaches, award-winning hotels, and numerous attractions. With people visiting from all over the world, Miami Beach has developed a chic and cosmopolitan culture that’s truly come into its own.

Indeed, Miami Beach is one of the nation’s largest hubs for concerts, music events, art galleries, and other prominent cultural venues. As its global profile grows, more and more artists, bands, and celebrities are flocking to the city to add even more dynamism into the mix. There’s something for just about every lifestyle and preference.

Consider just a few examples: the South Beach Food and Wine Festival, the Jackie Gleason Theater, Art Basel, the Fillmore Miami Beach, Miami International Boat Show, Oakdale Theater, and soon-to-be renovated Miami Beach Convention Center. These are just some of the many major cultural institutions that make Miami Beach a global leader in entertainment and leisure.

Even the city itself is one big culture center. Ocean Drive, which runs along its famous beachfront, is lined with a world-renowned assortment of clubs, restaurants, and eclectic boutiques. It is known for its unique collection of Art Deco hotels and apartments – many of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places – and hosts a variety of historic sites, museums, and performance.

Lincoln Road is another major thoroughfare that is lined with chic galleries, boutiques, cafes, and live music venues. You can enjoy a more grassroots and organic cultural experience just by taking a stroll through its beautiful walkway.

If you want access to all of these great venues and attractions, than the Z Ocean Hotel should be your top choice. Our luxury South Beach Hotel is located between Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue, directly across from South Beach’s world-famous beachfront. It’s in close proximity to Miami Beach Convention Center (four blocks away), Lincoln Road (two blocks) the Port of Miami (six miles), and Downtown Miami (five miles).

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.

A member of the esteemed Intercontinental Hotel Group (IHG), the Z Ocean Hotel recently won the 2014 Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor, a major travel website. We won this same award in 2013, along with distinction of being the top ten Miami Beach Hotels according to U.S. News.
