Default Miami Hotel close to port

Help me decide which hotel I need to book. I will be arriving at the airport and need transportation to the hotel and I'd like info about getting to the port. Also, after your cruise at the port, how do you get to where you need to go, are there taxi's there? This is my first cruise, if you cant tell () and any info is greatly appreciated!
Thanks, Laura

Default Re: Miami Hotel close to port

We always stay at the Doubletree Grand near Key Biscayne (www.doubletreegrand.com). If you get a bay view you can see the ships in the morning. Gets you excited!! They do not offer shuttle from the airport however it is about $15.00 taxi ride to hotel from airport. Then about $10.00 taxi to the port from the hotel. This is an awesome hotel. I have stayed 3-4 times here. Everytime we cruise out of Miami. Its a short ride over to Bayside market. Lots of dinning venues etc. Its actually right by the port. AFter you cruise there are plenty of Taxi's avail. but I would and have found out by past experience, take the cruise transfers back to the airport. The busses have a seperate drop of area that is less congested. The taxis take you right up to the drop off zone where you would normally go. Very busy!

Hope this helps and enjoy your first cruise.
