Default pre cruise miami hotel question

pre cruise miami hotel question
I always fly in the day before we leave - lesson learned the hard way a long time ago. Sailing out of Miami on the Breeze --- where do you suggest. Just need a 'place to stay' overnight as our flight prob won't even arrive until late evening and we will be leaving in a.m. for cruise. I imagine I'll have to transfer back to hotel - to transfer to ship? Thanks in advance.

We stayed at the LaQuinta Inn Airport, we did a park and cruise but the hotel offers free shuttle to the cruise terminal, you just need to pay for the taxi ride back to the airport.

The hotel is nothing fancy, but nice and the price wasn't bad. I think there are 2 Laquinta inns near the airport....east and west if I remember right, can't remember which we stayed at though. Just look up park and cruise hotels for Miami and you will get the right one.

Last cruise from Miami I stayed at the Extended Stay America - Brickell. $70 plus tax for the night and free parking for the week. I had to pay for the shuttle to the port in the morning. I also paid for a taxi back to the hotel at the end of the cruise. Very clean hotel, safe area for walking. Restaurants within walking distance. Rooms had kitchenettes. Several restaurants delivered menu's to the rooms. I tried one of those. Not reccomended.

We have used this place before too. It isnt 4 star but its just for a night, right! There is a McDonalds a few blocks behind, just turn left oyuut the door then left again at the corner. Go past the college and train.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn & Suites Miami Airport South Blue Lagoon. Free airport shuttle and breakfast and a cruise package with two one-way transportation to Port of Miami.

We always stayed at the Holiday Inn because of the Bayside Marketplace just across the street.

I going to try the Intercontinental next time that is just west of the Bayside Marketplace (still within walking distance).

I always do the Priceline Name your own price.

My criteria that I enter are: Miami Downtown, 3 1/2 star rating, and $99 room price.

You will be suprised on what you get - Mariott Biscayne Bay 3 1/2 star (amazing view of the port with the ships coming in turning around not to mention the sunrise and sunset of the day) and Intercontinental Miami 4 star rating - where I'll be staying at for this next cruise.
