WMC 2015


For WMC, we recommend staying in one of the many hotels located right in the heart of South Beach. While the Winter Music Conference afterparties take place in numerous locations across Miami, South Beach is a central location for exploring everything Miami has to offer. These hotels are all just steps from the beach, myriad stores and restaurants, the best of Miami’s nightlife, and most importantly, pool parties.

WMC has a number of affiliated hotels that offer special rates to registered badge-holders. We've included these below, distinguished by the orange "WMC Hotel" banner, along with our other area favorites.

Head to our Guide to Ultra for the rundown on where to sleep in Downtown Miami.

  • The Standard Miami

    The Standard Miami is a Spa Hotel, meaning it's unlike any other hotel around, and the hydrotherapy spa treatments are not to be missed.

Or take a dive in the arctic plunge pool, a 50˚ tub that stimulates circulation and heart rate to pump out those toxins you might have ingested at the festival.
