Ultra 2015


We recommend staying in the Downtown Miami district, as close to Bicentennial Park as possible. In addition to its proximity to the festival, Downtown Miami is in a central location, with respect to Miami International Airport, Miami's Art District, the Port of Miami, Bayside Marketplace, and South Beach.

While many events will take place in South Beach, the cab fare is around $20 to and from the festival, which, after three days, can really add up. It is much more convenient to be able to walk between your hotel and the festival. Trust us, you'll want to stop by your hotel and refresh before hitting the clubs, whether you go to one of Downtown Miami's many venues or venture across the bridge into South Beach.

For the rundown on where to sleep in South Beach, head to our Guide to WMC.
