    i'm looking at tickets for the sony ericsson open in march and there's a huge price difference between the 300 and 400 level seats. obviously the 300 seats have a better view, but are the 300 seats worth the difference in price?

    also, any recs on hotels (other than the ritz in key biscayne--looks sold out and probably out of our price range anyway)? we might try one of the hotels listed on the tournament website as having a shuttle--any experience with that? do you have to wait a lot for the shuttles, etc.?

    just realized i asked about some of this before! to those who responded, thanks for the hotel info.

    if anyone has experience with the 300 vs. 400 level tickets to share, that would be great.

    If you go in the first week, your best bet might be buying a 400-level seat just to get tournament entry but avoiding the stadium altogether.
    There are some pretty good seats on the grandstand and outer show courts.

    Honestly the stadium is excellent and even the cheap seats are good........we like to hang out at the practice courts anyway as much as possible. Best views and you are like 5 feet away.

    There really aren't any bad seats in the stadium; it isn't Arthur Ashe. If its a less attended day event you might even be able to sneak into a lower level seat anyway if you're lucky.
