Miami cruise port hotels?

Recommended Posts

Best hotel to stay in the night before embarking?  Biscayne hotels are pretty expensive in February. 😀

Near the port: Intercontinental is the standard bearer. Absolutely terrific hotel and so convenient. Want something a little different- Art Deco? Try the Blue Moon in South Beach (Marriott autograph collection).

Several hotels around MIA airport offer free shuttle service to the port. Saves a $30 taxi fare

Even though we live here in South Florida we spent a couple days on two occasions before cruises at the Fontainebleau.   Historic place right on Miami Beach and a great way to prepare for a cruise!   We did not run into Jackie Gleason or Frank Sinatra but we looked for them.    Close to the Port as well.

+1 for the Intercontinental!  Plus you can watch your ship arrive!

We liked the Hyatt Centric Brickell, which we booked using Hyatt point and which is about 200 yards from an excellent wine store...

For a Miami departure we would stay on Miami Beach.

 

Best off looking at the Florida board.  This question has been asked many many times before.

No offense, but Miami Beach is well past its' "sell by" date.

Another vote for the Intercontinental where you can watch your Oceania ship arrive from their pool deck and casual restaurant.

Last time we stayed at the Eurostar Langford.  It's downtown and in a fairly cool area of restaurants.  Don't get a room on an upper floor as it would be too close to their club which has loud music.  It's a converted bank building and the rooms are of interesting design.

We have stayed at the Holiday Inn Port of Miami twice.  It's a decent hotel, quite nice actually, reasonably-priced, and right across from the port.  Lots of places to walk to, and a short cab ride to the ship.

Mind sharing which ones. I know of plenty that have a shuttle from the airport, but none with a free shuttle from airport and to cruise port.

Thanks, I wasn't aware of that. I tend to stay on points at either a Marriott property or Hilton. I'll give that one some thought for the next time I need a room there.
