Perfect location for the convention center

I rented Tamara's condo to attend a meeting at the Miami Beach convention center and found that I was closer to the convention than any of my colleagues who were staying in the official hotels. Being one block from Lincoln Road was very convenient for good eating and people watching. Just a couple blocks away is Espanola Way, which I also found to have some good eating and drinking (had a nice lunch at "a la Folie" Cafe). It took me about 5-10 minutes to get from the condo to the convention center and about the same to get to the beach. This was my first trip to Miami, but it seems to me that the condo is perfectly located - you can enjoy the rowdy club scene, but walk back to your quiet place. There is also a bicycle rental station literally right in front of the condo that provides an inexpensive way to get around the area. (It's called Decobike.)
As for the condo itself, it was exceptionally clean and the pictures are very accurate. The bed is very comfortable and there is ample closet space for hanging clothes and hiding your bags away. The kitchen is very nicely appointed with modern appliances and was well stocked for all of my needs. The bathroom is very attractive, if not the most practical, but it was certainly sufficient for a few days' use. The wireless internet worked flawlessly throughout my stay, which was very helpful due to the working nature of my trip. I also had need to use the iron, which is nicer than the one I have at home! It was very quiet, which I appreciated because I usually had meetings starting at 7:30.
As I mentioned, this is my only visit to Miami, so I'm no expert, but this condo seemed to be an outstanding value to me. It was priced comparably to hotels that had many sketchy reviews on Trip Advisor, and yet I had a comparably huge space to enjoy. Tamara was very easy to deal with, and my deposit has already been returned to me, less than 24 hours after my departure. It was far enough away from the bars and clubs to be very quiet, but I was only a few minutes from anywhere I wanted to go. I would have to find a pretty good deal at a nice beachfront hotel (Loews, Fontainebleau - both of which I was in for meeting functions) to keep me from staying here again in the future.
Tourists without a Car,
