I just booked a cruise leaving april 11 out of Maimi and flying into ft lauderdale I want to get a hotel with a shuttle for somewhere in ft lauderdale and then take a taxi to port of miami Does anyone know of any hotels with free shuttles from the airport It was so much cheaper to fly into there. Does anyone know how much a taxi is from there It seem rates have gone up since the last time

The cab fare from Ft. Lauderdale to Miami will run around $75. Not sure which hotels offer shuttle service from the airport to their hotels. We've stayed at the Renaissance, Westin, Sea Club, TropiRock, Hyatt Pier 66, and Sheraton Yankee Clipper. None of which offered shuttle service that I know of. We had purchased the package through the cruise line for a few of the hotels, shuttle was included. The Sleep Inn in Dania has been recommended on this board by other cruises. Embassy Suites and Comfort Inn has also been recommended, again not sure about the shuttle. Anything on 17th Street Causeway will be close to the airport, anything on A1A will be further away, but should not be anymore than $25 cab ride. The Renaissance, Embassy Suites and Comfort Inn should be around $10 cab fare, Hyatt Pier 66 around $15. This might help.

$75 for the cab ride!!! Yikes. Is there a reason you're flying into Ft. Lauderdale? I would suggest getting a hotel in Miami perhaps... they may have shuttles that service Ft. Lauderdale. Another resource for Hotwire and Priceline hotels are the Hotwire and Priceline Hotel Lists here. Good luck.

If you try the train, please let us know how it went. They invested a whole lot of money into that Tri-Rail system. If it's a good system, then we could definitely recommend it to people as an option.
