The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa: Convention or Vacation

While most of Miami Beach is given over to mid-sized to large properties designed for vacationers, just a little further north along the waterfront in suburban Hollywood, the supersized  Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa, has the capacity and facilities to be both an extensive convention and large-scale meeting or event venue, a world-class resort and a somewhat more peaceful location that is also well positioned in proximity to airports, city centers and beaches.
