Can anybody recomend a nice hotel by the port of miami that will pick us up at the miami airort? Also can you walk to the port of miami from a hotel by the port or are they all too far away to walk to?

We are staying at the holiday inn port of miami in oct. It's less than 5 min. from the port. I know there are alot of taxis and shuttles outside the hotel. I am not sure about the airport shuttle because we are renting a car. You can go to the webiste and maybe find out just type in holiday inn port of miami.

Most people have told me the holiday in at the port of miami. it is right across the street from the port but you do need to take a taxi. lots of restaurants, shopping etc across the street from the hotel as well

I agree with the others - Port of Miami Holiday Inn is the best place due to walking distance to the shops and resturants. They do not offer a shuttle to/from the airport, but the cab fair shouldn't be more than $20 or so.

And there are NO hotels within walking distance to the Port. The Holiday is is literally across the street from the port but it would still be at least a mile walk to the ships. (Dragging your luggage behind you....)

I pricelined a room at the Hyatt Regency (5 Star)for 60 a night last year, You could walk to Bayside. For that price a taxi is easily otainable. The bad thing is that the taxi will charge for that traffic jam waiting to get near the ship

Learn from my mistake! I went to Sky Auctions.com to bid on a hotel, won the bid for one night at the courtyard by marriott south beach for $109. I thought this was a great deal considering the website for their hotel lists the room for triple that price! So I came on this website (shoulda did it sooner) and found a sight offering the same hotel at $89. I wasted my money, so save yours,do the research, twice! or 3 times! lol
