More About Hotels near American Airlines Arena...

Walk to the Arena From Nearby Hotels

There are plenty of options nearby for those who wish to stay near the AmericanAirlines Arena. Surrounding hotels include the Intercontinental Miami, which offers breathtaking views of Biscayne Bay, with spa services and stylish, upscale accommodations. For something more affordable, check out the Leamington Hotel or the Miami Sun Hotel. The Holiday Inn Port of Miami – Downtown is a great choice for families thanks to midprice accommodations, casual on-site dining, and an outdoor pool.

Save Money at Miami Beach Hostels

Miami Beach offers many affordable hostels that are just a short bus ride away from the arena. At the Posh South Beach Hostel, visitors stay in bunk beds in large co-ed rooms, and enjoy access to a rooftop pool and airport shuttle. The SoBe Hostel offers both dorm-style and private rooms with fun amenities like beer pong tables and exclusive specials at a nearby bar. For slightly more privacy, check out the Jazz on South Beach Hostel, which offers all en suite rooms.

Be Aware of Peak Travel Times

Availability for both arena tickets and hotel accommodations is the tightest during Miami’s peak travel season. January through April is the busiest time of year for travel to Miami. It can be especially difficult to find accommodations during college spring break weeks, which typically land in mid to late March. For more hotel and hostel availability and lower rates, consider traveling to Miami from June through September when crowds are smaller. Keep in mind, however, that Miami is at risk for hurricanes and tropical storms during this time.

Book Heat Tickets in Advance

AmericanAirlines Arena's main function is hosting the Miami Heat NBA team. With multiple championships in recent years, tickets for Heat home games sell out quickly. Buy your tickets early through Ticketmaster to secure a seat. Some last-minute tickets may also be available through legitimate ticket sales sites like StubHub. Still, you should expect to pay a bit no matter where you’ll be sitting. The NBA season typically extends from October through April, with play-offs held in May and June.

Check Out Concerts and Live Events

Prices and availability for concerts and other shows at the arena vary widely depending on the event. Tickets for music superstars like Taylor Swift, U2, Jay Z, and Lady Gaga often sell out quickly at high price levels. However, the arena also configures for more intimate concerts, many of which are more affordable and have better ticket availability. The arena also hosts many special live events, such as the Harlem Globetrotters, Disney on Ice, and the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. You can purchase all event tickets online or by phone through Ticketmaster.

Don't Be Confused By the Name

Keep in mind that hotels near the American Airlines Center won't be helpful here as that refers to a separate facility for the Dallas Mavericks. Note the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami uses a one-word spelling while the American Airlines Center in Dallas splits the airline name into two words. Additionally, some locals and sportscasters refer to AmericanAirlines Arena as the "triple-A" or "A3" (A cubed).
