Blogalicious 2010: We need your input, please

Saturday, December 5, 2009

We need your input, please

Planning a conference is not as easy as it seems! There are so many details and so many choices and it's a little daunting that one misguided decision could affect many things. Fortunately, there weren't too many poor choices for Blogalicious 2009 (we hope you would agree).

As we embark on Blogalicious 2010 we are once again reminded of the many, many choices that go along with this process. We narrowed down the city to Miami with ease and I think we are all pretty comfortable with that choice. I mean, c'mon, its Miami - sun, sand and fun; what more could we ask for?

Onto the next big decision - the hotel. Do we want posh and hot or laid back and relaxed, mid city or beach front, fancy guest rooms or great amenities. Granted, it would be fabulous if we could wave a magic wand and get it all, but the truth of the matter is that it's just not that easy.

We visited Miami this weekend in search of the perfect place to host Blogalicious 2010. For us, the accommodations and vibe have to be just right because we want the best for you. We want you to enjoy your experience so we are considering many options. But, we have safely narrowed the choice to a couple hotels, BUT we want your input.

Help us choose the RIGHT hotel. Here are the specs:

Downtown - moderately priced; fantastic rooms with lots of hi-tech gadgets; great in-hotel amenities; posh and sleek; Biscayne Bay views; walking distance to shops, dining and the Bay; a 10-minute ride to South Beach.

Beachfront - moderately priced; plush and spacious rooms; beautiful beach views from rooms; beachfront resort; laid back; family amenities; great outdoor facilities; North Miami Beach; convenient shuttle rides to South Beach and superb shopping.

Tell us what you want your experience to be. Please leave us a comment AND vote. Voting closes on December 12th, and we're looking forward to your feedback.

  6. Beachfront please. 2009 we did the whole Downtown thing and I'm thinking 2010 should be Beachfront.

  7. Downtown

    I think the lure of the beach would be too distracting

  8. A conference in a city with a beach deserves to be posted up on the sand. Anything less would be an abomination.

  9. Beachfront. Downtown Miami gets really dodgy at night and it's not that convenient to South Beach.

  10. Is there anyway to get a hybrid of the two? South Beach could do both, right?

  11. Downtown! Who needs the beach in October?

  13. Beach please. Anything else would be wrong, just wrong! We need a relaxing atmosphere where we can connect with one another. Downtown would be too much hustle and bustle. Besides, if we really wanted to shop, nothing will stop us. We can all hop on a shuttle and go shopping. That's not so easy to hop on a shuttle for a day at the beach- too much sun tan lotion, change of clothes, flip flops etc to carry around on a shuttle to the beach.

  15. Beach, we will need the sun in Oct for those New Englanders like me.

  16. Downtown Miami is FAR from South Beach ladies!!! We want some Collins and Ocean drive for the first-timers! lol! AND South Beach is mid-way to ALL the fab SHOPPING! My vote is BEACH!

  18. Beachfront if talking South Beach! This year I stayed at the Hotel of South Beach(a boutique hotel2nd week of Oct for bday) too small for this event but it was a great place for R&R. Located on Collins Avenue.
