In a city that’s mostly flat, Downtown Miami’s skyline pulls focus with its glistening skyscrapers and captivating condos, buzzing bars and high-end hotels. Fortunately for the budget-conscious traveler there are a few places in the heart of Brickell that won’t empty your wallet. B&Bs in Overtown, and design-fresh hotels near the Bayside Marketplace – here’s our pick of the top places to stay when you’re watching your dollars.

In the historic Overtown neighborhood, this building has been returned to its 1940s glory in the form of a cozy bed and breakfast. The Copper Door’s vintage-style rooms feature full, queen or king-sized beds, and it also has three suites with more of a boutique hotel feel than a traditional B&B. Many of the rooms feature accent walls or ceilings, with Instagram-friendly wallpaper, intricately-tiled bathrooms, and views of the garden. The complimentary daily breakfast is made to feel personal, with deftly fried eggs, freshly baked cinnamon rolls, and sweet potato hashes. For an added incentive, the Copper Door also hosts some great pop-up community events.

When you think of a classy Miami hotel, you might imagine something like the glossy lobby and modern design of YVE. From the chairs in the restaurant to the yoga mats in the gym, bright accents from Miami’s signature color palette punctuate this hotel. Most guest rooms look out at the beautiful skyline or Biscayne Bay, and the affordable bar-restaurant (the Biscayne Tavern) tops the list of on-site amenities with its American menu and more than a dozen craft beers. The hotel’s a short walk from the Bayside Marketplace (great for shopping and eating) and the city’s basketball arena, which also hosts concerts with some impressive headliners.

Suite guests also enjoy the use of a mini-fridge, but you can always rent one from the front desk if needed. The outdoor pool is lined with stylish deckchairs, making it the ideal place to relax and catch some rays in the Miami sun.
