What are good South Beach hotels for a fun, young, large group?

Where to stay in South Beach (Miami) for large group (40+) of the post-collegiate (but not too serious) type for a weekend in September? Trying to find places $150-$200 which deal with groups (10 rooms or so) often.

I'm helping planning a trip to Miami in September. I've narrowed the list down to 20 places (all south of 17th st in Miami Beach).

We're looking for fun, above else, and quality management (so that we won't be screwed paying for $4,000 of hotel rooms).

Here's my thoughts, give your own on them (or suggest others)

Chain Hotels:
1. Best Western at 10th
2. Comfort inn at 13th
3. Courtyard by Marriott at 15th

1. Clevelander
2. The Shelley
3. Park Hotel

Clevelander is great. I'm not sure about what price you're getting, but the rooms are nice, and the price is usually okay, and the location is great. There's a deck off the highest floor that should be operational. They tend to be good about parties too.

I can tell you one to avoid – the shellborne. It's kinda like the shining, only less fun.

It's a little above 200 a room, but maybe they can do group rates, especially if it's slow (not really sure what September is like) the delano is like a little piece of heaven. The service is great, the rooms are nice and the pool area is beautiful.

The Townhouse is bright, comfortable, and airy, has a great sushi place in the basement, and even though it's right off the beach between the super-expensive Setai and Shore Club is much more reasonably priced - rooms start at $120, or $140 for the corner which we had and is really sunny and nice. Here's a picture of the hotel from the beach.

Of the six you've listed pick the Clevelander. Nicwolff's suggestion of the Townhouse is pretty clutch. They have a rooftop bar (which closes early) but is a prime spot for early drinks (2 for 1s galore) and the sunset across the beach over the bay is money.

I live here so I haven't a clue who deals with such large numbers, but keep us posted.
