Hotels and Lodging
We've listed a few of the hotels near Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens below.
Since travel funds are limited and hotels are expensive, please try to stay with someone in town if possible.
FIU uses the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) domestic maximum lodging as the reference rate for hotel accommodations.
If your room rate exceeds $156 (excluding taxes),
you will need to submit a justification for the extra expense with your travel reimbursement.
Please request the government rate if you work at a state university or a state or federal agency;
this often helps keep the rate at or under the GSA domestic maximum lodging rate.
