Hotel prices in Miami Beach are often as much as twice as high as similar properties in Las Vegas, according to an analysis by Strategic Advisory Group. The study was done on behalf of the city of Miami Beach. It comes in light of a recent vote against a potential casino resort in the city, and amid growing concerns over the impact of the addition of thousands of potential hotel rooms in downtown Miami. "If you put 5,000 hotel rooms in downtown they will suck out everything surrounding them," said Stuart Blumberg, the former head of the Greater Miami and the Beaches Hotel Association. "It will take 19 years for the current hotels to break even. They're going to destroy the market inventory." [Miami Herald]
