More About Hotels near Fire Station No. 2...

Affordable Hotels in the Omni District 

Miami's historic Fire Station No. 2 is in the Omni District of Downtown Miami, near Overtown neighborhood. While there are no hotels immediately adjacent to the fire station, Hilton Miami Downtown and Casa Moderna Miami Hotel are close affordable hotel options.

While the Omni District is outside the heart of downtown, it is an up and coming area of Downtown Miami and is served by the Omni Loop branch of the free Metromover, which means you can easily head into Brickell for shopping and dining. The other downside is if your holiday coincides with the annual Miami International Boat Show as hotel rates could be significantly higher. On the plus side, water-view rooms include stunning panoramas of the Venetian Islands and South Beach.

Omni is considered an urban residential neighborhood and is home to some historic buildings and the Omni International Mall. Other hotels in Omni and near Fire Station No. 2 include DoubleTree by Hilton, Marriott Miami Biscayne, and Opera Suites & Marina.

Visiting Fire Station No. 2

Fire Station No. 2 is located at 1401 North Miami Avenue. Its addition to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places is a worthy accomplishment and ensures the building will be preserved. The building has been declared a significant architectural example of the Mediterranean Revival style. It was constructed in the 1920's when Miami was booming and the need for municipal services was at an all-time high.

August Geiger, the noted South Florida architect, was the mastermind behind Fire Station No. 2. His  work was well-respected within Florida, and he's responsible for other landmark properties, including the 1915 Miami City Hospital and the 1925 Dade County Courthouse. Both of those are among Geiger's properties that were included in the National Register of Historic Places.

Fire Station No. 2 underwent a massive renovation thanks to new owners Omni/Midtown Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), who now maintains office on the second floor of the historic fire station. The downstairs was recently leased to a restaurant as part of a neighborhood reinvigoration project.
