Default Miami Hotels pre-cruise and post cruise

We would like to stay on a pre-cruise hotel near the pier and also a post-cruise hotel that is moderately price.

Would any of these hotels have shuttles from/to airport or to the pier? We would also see a bit of Miami after the cruise. Any suggestions as to areas to explore in a day?

I would like to try priceline. Any suggestions as to the bidding strategy, starting bids, zones etc..

For pre cruise I would certainly bid 3 star downtown zone... bid depends on time of year, but start at around $50 if you have some time to see where the bidding is going to go.

Most of these hotels won't offer shuttles to the pier, but taxi fare is only $10-15.

Hey there! I prefer to stay where I can grab a taxi to the port for about $6 - so the holiday inn, hyatt (not the best but...) or intercontinental are great. Holiday Inn would be the most economical and has a great view!
