Planning an Estern Caribbean Cruise on the Paradise leaving from Miami and needing a nice, reasonably price hotel close to the ship as we will be flying in the day before. Also how far is the Miami airport from the cruise terminal?
It`s about a 15 minute cab ride, depending on traffic.
Hotels, Biscayne Bay Marriott or The Hyatt Regency downtown.
Steer clear of Howard Johnson`s, the place is a dump ready for the wrecking ball. Hope this helps!
Best Western At Bayside Marina!! Cheap nothing fancy but 2 things : 1. Great view of the Ships coming into port of Miami
2. Bayside Marina across the strett great places to drink,eat,shop,etc. Hard Rock Cafe,Hooters, Frog's, Etc. Very short 5 minute ride to the Port.
Depends on what you want to do when in Miami. We wanted beach time, but didn't want to spend a lot for a short overnight stay. We found the Holiday Inn at Indian Creek nice and economical. Full service hotel with pool and dining room/lounge and one block walk to the beach. Rate was about $89 for a superior room, upper floor with balcony ocean view. You could still see in the distance the ships sailing in and out of port from the balcony.
