We need to stay in Miami for an extra night. The rest of our group is going home right after the cruise, so we will be on our own. I'm extremely nervous about being Miami and trying to go to some of the sites, ex. Market Place and Metro Zoo. We have thought about the Radisson any thoughts would be appreciated. Also our flight leaves at 6:30 am. will we be safe taking a taxi at 5:00 am?
I stayed at the Radisson and the Hyatt on our last cruise (Triumpth 10/11/03). They are both nice hotels. Bid on Priceline for $35, 3 star, and Miami downtown zone. We went to Ocean Dr in South Beach and rented scooters; they were a blast and we were able to see everything. They are cheap $15/hour.
For your taxi to the airport, just arrange it with the concierge the night before, and your taxi will be there to pick you up. You will be fine. The hotel lobby is large and there will be people there such as the valet driver, front doorman, bellhop.
