Smile Hotel in Miami

We are staying two days in January 2017 in Miami, before our cruise on Celebrity. Any thoughts on a reasonable hotel? Maybe not too far from the beach? Doesn't have to be one of the expensive beaches like SoBe. Maybe north a little bit?

Will you have a car?
What price point do you consider "reasonable"
different $$ for different people & their budgets

I would check one of the hotel booking sites for prices for your dates
The further away from POM the taxi fare increases so keep that in mind

We like the Hampton Inn Brickell but no beach nearby

you could try Ft Lauderdale area a taxi would be about $80 to POM
or some hotels are on the shuttle routes like QLS or Go shuttle which is a PP rate
Sunny.org might be useful for FLL area

If you choose to stay in Lauderdale,which is what we always do, we use, SAS Transport Quality Shuttle Service at Affordable Prices, 954-600-0240, a shuttle service to Miami...it was $15.00 pp the last time we used it....using Priceline for Lauderdale, plug in 4 star downtown, and you will get a hotel like, Pier 66,( we got that the last time) Renaissance , or Embassy Suites...

I don't know anything about the beaches, but LaQuinta East is a decent Miami hotel.

The downtown hilton is very handy to many things. The cruise terminal is just 5 minutes away (an UBER ride would be very cheap) and it is as close to South Beach as you can get without staying in South Beach.
