    Miami Hotels with Cruise Parking

    Hi CJ. Yes it appears to be the same link. Looking at the web address from my small android phone, I was not familiar with seeing the landing landing words. I understand it now is shared on other web based blogs but I for one won't post it on public media. It is very special to me and a great hotel. We parked there during Hurricane Irma in 2017, and are car was just fine. Happy New Year.

    Thanks so much for all of your assistance. I couldn't find the Prepay option but have re-booked directly on their website, got a Sr. discount for $233/$229 per night. Saved us almost a $100. I had just read a Horror story about booking.com and decided, I could not take the chance of getting bumped. So glad for your cruise critic help. How are things near Tewsbury? Figure you must be near due to your screen name. DH will probably be up in Andover next week or so. Not looking forward to him traveling up there in this Winter weather. He doesn't even have snow boots any longer.

    Horrible experience at Hyatt Place 17th Street

    Thank you to the OP and all of you for sharing your personal and cruise hotel stay related experience. Just booked a hotel for a family wedding stay on Booking.com (which I've used with no issues) and I just can't take the risk of a change in accommodations. I re-booked on the hotel chain web site, got a Senior discount and am saving almost $100 for 2 nights. I usually use Hilton web sites but this time the bride has chosen a Marriott chain hotel. So glad to have found this thread and taken care of our reservations.

    Miami Brickell Area - Post Cruise

    Thank you both for your detailed response. We will be sure to install WAZE also before we sail. I've printed out your directions and hope for the best.

    Miami Brickell Area - Post Cruise

    I did hear that and recommended it to lots of people during our last hurricane. Many return evacuation routes were impassable. It helped our neighbors get home. I'll be sure to have it added to my husband's iphone.

    Miami Brickell Area - Post Cruise

    Question for a local: I'v stayed at the Hampton Inn Brickell many times as I love the parking availability and safety. I get their just fine from I 95. I have yet to find a direct route to return to I 95 North. Last time, was just after Hurricane Irma and it took us an hour to "get out of town". Any help you can give would be appreciated. GPS was useless.

    Love the Hampton Inn & Suites Brickell Avenue. I just booked for the 4th time for next November. Schedule is open for booking at least until then. The rate I have is discounted and a very private rate. It must be booked through a special link. If you wish, I will share it, but only in private email; nanatravel at sc coast dot net.

    Thanks. I had the membership at my old address in MA/NH. Got a new # one for this trip. Didn't have many points to speak of anyway. I can't find a Pre-pay option. Does it come up when you go to finish the reservation?

    No I didn't. I have not used Marriott rewards in years since the Ice Freeze of 2010 or earlier! Decided to sell after that. Which web site to I go onto?

    Only issue is the wedding is being held at the Courtyard by Marriott on Tremont and I would prefer to stay where our family will be staying. I love the Park Plaza and know it's not too far away. I will be wearing a formal outfit and don't want to have to bring a more dressy coat. What I still have in SC is wool with fur, so much more wintry. Thanks for the hint though.

    Great advice 138east. We have a wedding to attend in downtown Boston on Oct. 6. Even the bridal group booking rate is $289 plus about $60+ in taxes. I booked a cancel able rate, so will watch for rates to drop. Being from the area, I doubt it will happen with colleges having home coming events and it being peak Foliage season. The Seaport Hotel is beautiful. I've held events there before retirement.

    Diamond question

    Great to know. Thanks for confirming.
  14. Thank you so much for your live review and posting such amazing photos. I'll be joining you on the 50th Anniversary cruise in November. But will get to try Oasis class in February. Can't wait. Thanks again.

    Sales for drink package ?

    Just found out the coffee at Cafe Promenade is Seattle's Best which is a subsidiary of Starbucks.
