Even locals need a staycation every once in awhile, and there are few accommodation options that compare to the newly renovated InterContinental Miami. This waterfront gem in downtown is a complex unto itself, with Toro Toro, Starbucks, Ole, mySpa and multiple other eatery options and on-site conveniences and amenities. A spacious, mod lobby lays out like a Vegas resort. And perhaps best of all, there's a computer-controlled light show on the building's exterior. It can showcase anything and everything from a dancing girl to an erupting volcano. Over the top? Maybe, but that's so Miami.
