Grand Beach Hotel Surfside

As a courtesy to our delegates, we are pleased to offer a discounted hotel group room rate to assist with travel planning. If you will be taking advantage of this option, please remember to book early as the room rate does expire and will no longer be offered after the block is at capacity.

Grand Beach Hotel Surfside is a brand-new, contemporary hotel (268 luxurious suites) located on Surfside Beach, directly on the Atlantic Ocean. The Town of Surfside is an oceanfront community conveniently located between Miami Beach and Bal Harbour on one of the nicest stretches of beach.

Surfside is perfectly situated with easy access to both major airports in Southeast Florida. Miami International Airport and Ft. Lauderdale Airport are both only 15 miles away and can be reached by rental car, commercial shuttle bus, or taxi. Most importantly, Surfside is just a 15 minute drive from the conference venue, Florida International University Biscayne Bay Campus, and transportation will be provided between the hotel and the venue each conference day.

Surfside is also very close to the “shopping destinations” of Bal Harbour Shops and Aventura Mall as well as the recreational activities such as fishing, boating, tennis, kite flying and kayaking in Haulover Park or Oleta State Park.
