Default Closest area to stay close to Miami Port????

We are arriving the night before our cruise and wanted advise on the most convenient area to stay so that we are close to the port. We were hoping to stay the night in the South Beach area. Is this convenient? Do the hotels offer shuttle service? Thanks in advance.

We just booked a room at the Radisson in downtown Miami through Priceline. Thanks to other messages, we knew to bid 3 stars at $35 per room. When we looked on the Radisson website, this same room is listed for $139 per night. Our hotel does offer a shuttle for $4 pp from the hotel to the port. But, it may be cheaper to catch a cab.


Have a great cruise!

Lottie, if you really want a room at South Beach, that is not too far from the port. No, not every hotel offers a shuttle, but a taxi is not expensive, since the port is so close. If you are looking at the "closest", then do like us and Miss Em, bid a 3-star for $35.00 and you will probably get the Radisson or the Hyatt, which are like 1/2 mile from the port and very close to alot of nice places like Bayside. Hope this helps! jack & erlinda

I followed both of your advice. Like you, we bid $35.00 on a three star and sure enough, got the Radisson. Thanks for the great tip.
