Has anyone stayed in this hotel? Can anyone offer opinions? How was the parking? Can you leave your vehicle there? Thinking of staying here pre-cruise in April. Thanks in advance.

Stayed there a couple of times previously when it was a Best Western. At the time, they offered shuttle service to the pier and free breakfast. Appears they have now increased prices by approx. 25% and cancelled the amenities as a Holiday Inn. Rooms are fine and location is handy being across the street from the pier, Bayside Marketplace and "Little Havana". That said, there are a number of other choices in the neighbourhood so shop around for rates. If you choose to stay, Biscayne Blvd is busy
( noisy ) and suggest you request a room in the back of the hotel. You will not be able to see the pier and your ship, but at least you'll get to sleep.
