Hotels Near Coral Gables

If the MacFarlane district is on your Miami to-do list, consider a hotel in or near Coral Gables. Here you will find some big-brand luxury hotels offering cheaper rates.

Properties include The Ritz-Carlton, Coconut Grove, The Westin Colonnade - Coral Gables, and Hyatt Regency Coral Gables. Cheaper hotels include Mayfair Hotel & Spa, The Mutiny Hotel, Sonesta Bayfront Hotel Coconut Grove, and Courtyard by Marriott Miami Coconut Grove.

If you are traveling by car, verify the cheaper hotel rate does not become more expensive when you include parking fees and Wi-Fi charges.

Miami's public transportation, including the Metrobus and Metrorail, runs between Miami and Coral Gables, which is a bonus if you want to stay outside of Downtown Miami. Coral Gables is also only a few miles away from the airport, making it an attractive option if you want to avoid high-traffic areas.

Attractions and Sights in Coral Gables

Coral Gables is just southwest of Downtown Miami and was one of the first planned communities. The area in and around Coral Gables has a number of interesting sights and attractions. The University of Miami, Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, Cocowalk, and Mayfair in the Grove are worth visiting.

Coral Gables offers a free trolley that runs along Ponce de Leon Boulevard during the day. Coral Gables is considered a very pedestrian-friendly city so plan to explore its downtown area on foot.

Coral Gables and MacFarlane Architecture

Coral Gables' architectural style is primarily Mediterranean Revival, while MacFarlane is Vernacular, a style not seen elsewhere in the area. These homes are primarily bungalows and one-story frame "shot gun" homes. The 32 historic buildings are located within the boundaries of Jefferson Street, Frow Avenue, Brooker Street, and Grand Avenue. Flora McFarlane (note the "Mac" in the official district name was an error) sold 20 acres to Merrick's company, creating the subdivision that attracted many Bahamian immigrant laborers.
