I'll be staying at the Hilton airport hotel in a couple of weeks. I'll be taking a shuttle to Port Everglades from there and it only will cost $60 for up to 4 people. To get that information I called the hotel. It's about a 30 minute ride from the airport to South Beach. You'd probably be better off staying at a downtown hotel. We stayed at the Radisson hotel in downtown Miami and really liked it. It's right next to Doubletree.
