I'm looking for a hotel for the night after the cruise. We will debark off of the Liberty in Miami but fly out of Ft. Lauderdale the next morning. I think it would be best if we caught a cab to Ft. Lauderdale and stayed in a hotel there with a shuttle to the airport.

Or should we stay in Miami and take a cab the following day to Ft. Lauderdale.

I’m not looking for a luxurious hotel because we will have already had our vacation fun but I would like the price to be reasonable. Also in the past I’ve made the mistake of finding a hotel with hookers on the grounds, so I’m also trying to avoid that.

Any suggestions on a decent hotel and should we stay in Ft. Lauderdale or Miami?
