Why it's a deal: The four-night hotel accommodations would cost nearly $600 per person, including taxes, if booked separately. This $549 package includes a four-night stay and taxes, plus round-trip airfare, which would cost about $149 per person if booked independently through Kayak (AirTran).

Lodging: You'll stay at the glam 920-room Fontainebleau Miami Beach, where Frank Sinatra and Elvis once stayed. A recent $1 billion renovation updated amenities, which include an expansive pool complex, five upscale restaurants, and a two-story spa. The 22-acre property is along the ocean, right across from the beach.

Before you go: Transfers aren't included; you can book a shuttle for $22 each way per person. A taxi will cost about $32. For more ideas on what to do, visit Miami's official tourism site.
