We usually stay at the Holiday Inn Port of Miami. It is a $24 taxi ride from the airport and to get to the port in the am it costs $8 by taxi. It is just across a bridge... If you ask you can get a room directly overlooking the port so you can see your ship arrive. The hotel is directly opposite the Bayside Marketplace, which has lots of shops, restaurants, bars, all set around a Marina. You can eat shop and people watch. They usually have live music in the evening. It is a good place to stay pre-cruise.
