Default Port of Miami Hotel Info

Hi, I need to book a hotel for our Jan 09 Valor cruise. Any info, it would be for four of us. Any info would be great. Would the Holiday Inn port of Miami be OK. Has anyone gone to Bayside Market?? I read great things about it and like the fact that you can walk to it from that hotel. Is it close to any other hotels. Don't want to break the bank!! Thank's, Lynn

We book thru Red Roof Inn at around 7x.xx something a night. I found a discount code from a website called retailmenot.com and it is a 20% discount (code: CP536450). I keep finding all kind of discount codes on that http://www.retailmenot.com/ site. I love it. We have two nights before our cruise that we will be staying.

I even found a discount code for our flight thru USA3000. That even saved us $10/pp. They way I look at it ......that is extra money in my pocket and not theirs and it's just like a savings account keep finding the little amounts it eventually adds up to a good amount.

Hope this has helped!

I've stayed at the Miami Holiday Inn Bayside many times for my precruise stay and highly recommend it.

Bayside is close to all the downtown Miami hotels. Holiday Inn is literally right across the street from bayside market. Bayside has lots of restaraunts, last minute shopping, live music and entertainment on the weekends, bars, including a nice frozen drink bar right in the middle of the open patio area, its a great way to kick off your vacation. enjoy a little shopping, dinner, and enjoy a frozen foo foo drink and the great view with some live music.
its also an interesting place to people watch.

Does anyone have any information on the Red Rood Inn in Miami it is close to the Port of Miami....How is the location in terms of shops, places to eat, and safety?

Thanks

Default Are these hotels within walking distance of the ships?

I travel light and consider 3 miles walking distance.

I have returned from my cruise and I stayed at the Red Roof Inn for under $80 per night. The place was clean and has a shuttle service that takes you to the Port of Miami. I personally would stay there again.
