Rick, Cinny and I stayed at the Hyatt downtown last May and thought it was pretty nice. At the time we were able to get a net rate of $99 so it was a great deal. The problem is finding a nice place to eat without a rental car. We orderd pizza to our room and it was terrible. We did get a room over the drawbridge and it gave us a good view of the ships coming into the port in the early hour of the morning.

I stayed at a great renovated Art Deco hotel on the beach at South Beach. It was a short, fairly cheap taxi trip to the pier. There was also a free shuttle bus in front that took you to the restaurant/shopping areas that were only a few minutes away.

I agree with Mikey Sr. stay at rhe Hyatt, as for food you can take a short taxi ride/ short walk over to BAY SIDE MARKET PLACE lot of small little shops aand many restaurants, including HOOTERS and some local Cuban cuisine. If there early I would walk over (in the day light) and cab it back. My wife and I did this many time before we moved here to South Fla.

PS. Royal Caribbean used to use the Hyatt for their Pre-days.

Rick:

To be close to the port, you need to book a downtown hotel. The Intercontinental on Chopin Plaza is great.

Take a look at www.biddingfortravel.com. Great information there on how to accurately bid on priceline. I've been able to narrow down my choices for 4* hotel properties in FLL, MIA and TPA without any problem.. and have never wound up with a hotel I would not have booked on my own. And I've saved a ton of money!

For my Mercury cruise, I chose to stay in Coconut Grove. I paid $65.00 for the 4* Mayfair House Hotel. A very interesting property... and some of the finest food I've ever eaten.
For my post cruises stay, I wanted a "resort" type property. I got the 4* Sheraton Bal Harbour for $55.00 per night. Both these hotels were bid on priceline.

Good luck.
