Days after Hurricane Irma dealt a devastating blow to South Florida, millions of residents remain without power, spending miserable nights sans air conditioning, or continuing to depend on the kindness of friends and relatives  at the risk of overextending their welcome.

Now, area hotels are starting to reopen, aiming to lure downtrodden South Floridians as well as other guests. Some Miami Beach hotels are even offering discounts, with room rates of $99 per night or less for city residents, according to an email from Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine.

Among the hotels open and offering such discounts for Miami Beach residents are Dream South Beach, Nautilus Hotel, the National Hotel, Miami Beach Resort, Loews Miami Beach Hotel, the Hall, the Shelborne South Beach, Lexington Hotel Miami Beach, Four Points by Sheraton Miami Beach, Holiday Inn Miami Beach, Best Western Plus Atlantic Beach Resort and Seagull Hotel Miami Beach.

Other hotels announced that they will reopen on Wednesday, including the Setai Miami Beach and ME Miami. 

And on Friday, W Miami and 1 Hotel South Beach will reopen, as will the Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood.
