angela:
It depends on what you are looking for. They Hyatt Regency Downtown is a closer and a better walk to Bayside Market, especially after dark. It is also closer to other shopping. It is about a dollar or two more for the cab ride to the port from the Hyatt and you will not have a view of the port from the Hyatt.

Take care,
Mike

Does either of these hotels have beach fronts? I am assuming they do not. If we wanted to spend a few days PRE-cruise with a family of 6, where would you suggest??

Cuti:
None of the Downtown hotels have beach front. You would have to look at South Beach or another area for beach front hotels.

Take care,
Mike
