  1. Yes, it is a really cool hotel in a unique location. We always cut through there to get to the Miami River by boat. Keep in mind the man made beach has no entry to the water. That doesn't really matter because the pool is so amazing.
  2. This is a good point I didn't think of. Hub to hub is pretty much a guarantee you'll get there.
  3. Looking for a Cuban restaurant in Miami is like looking for good Italian in Italy. It's on every corner.
  4. By the way, I drove from the Riverside Hotel Sunday to the Miami airport and it took me 65 minutes. I've driven this day and night every day of the week and it never takes less than an hour. Wrecks, traffic, construction make I=95 a ***** show.
  5. Fly into Miami, stay at a downtown hotel like The Hampton Inn. Plenty to do and lots of good restaurants within walking distance. Short Uber ride from the airport. If you decide to fly to FLL, it's about an hour and a $38 Uber ride to downtown Miami.
  6. Where are you cruising in and out of? Fly there. No reason to add transportation to the equation if you are already this stressed.
  7. Probably in the $20 range. It's a fantastic hotel, ask for one of the corner rooms. The windows are floor to ceiling with amazing views of the ICW and Atlantic Ocean. I think you are going to love this hotel.
  8. Good choice. Hollywood is really a hot mess.
  9. I've flown in and out of both Punta Gorda and Fort Myers and prefer them both to MIA or FLA.
  10. I love the Courtyard Marriott! Im not sure what the above poster is talking about but it is MUCH nicer than any Courtyard I've ever been in. We have family and friends who stay there so we are in and out of this hotel a lot. Tons of bars, restaurants, and shopping within close walking distance. Really cool pool and bar area. Bubba Gumps (which I love) is right below the hotel. Really a solid choice.
  11. Fantastic hotel, love staying there. Bad Boys II was filmed in the lobby. Really gorgeous hotel.
  12. Carlos & Pepes isn't TexMex or moderate but it is fantastic. We don't have TexMex because, Florida. El Camino and Roccos Tacos on Las Olas are less expensive. I like Kellys on 17th Street for good, New England Seafood. If you want to jump in an Uber, The Rustic Inn or Deweys both are fantastic for seafood. If you want to eat oceanfront, I like Aruba which is also an Uber ride.
  13. The only thing 17th Street is convenient for is the port and dinning. To the OP the location is great for Las Olas and downtown which has a bunch of things to do. Make sure you try the rooftop lounge at the top of the Dalmar which is really cool.
