I am getting married on the Cranival Triumph May 6,2006 and we have approximately 40 people sailing with us. I have mixed feelings about the above hotel so I would like some honest reviews from people who have stayed there. I would hate to have all my guests upset because the night before the cruise and wedding was horrible.
I would like any information that you could possibly provide. I was checking out the Days Inn Miami International Airport which has more positive reviews. Can the same hotel chain have such differences.
We stayed there last summer in August because they offered shuttle to/from airport and the port. We had a horrible experience, waiting about 2.5 hours for a shuttle to pick up our party of 9 at the airport, despite multiple calls assuring us that they would be there in a few minutes. Once, the shuttle drove past us because he didn't have enough room in the shuttle!
The rooms were mediocre. The hotel is next door to Bernie Kosar's steakhouse, which was good. We had no problems on the shuttle to the port. Still, I wouldn't stay there again.
After the cruise, we rented a van at the port, stayed overnight, and dropped off the van at the airport. In retrospect, I wish we had done that on the way in.
