Miami - hotel recommendations
 
Hi all,

We are sailing out of Miami in February and need to book a hotel for the night before.

I believe if I book Disney transportation I need to stay near/at the airport?

We will have two small children and no car seats. So we won't be renting a car. Is there any other way to get from the airport or a hotel to the port if we decide to go on our own?

Where are other people staying and how are you getting to the port?

I have not stayed at at either of these hotels and do not know the Miami area but I found two chain hotels, near the airport you might consider.

The LaQuinta (305) 871-1777, has a free shuttle from the Miami airport and to the port

Embassy Suites Miami, Int. Airport, has a free shuttle from the airport and a shuttle to the port at $10 each.

Hope this helps

The Embassy Suites are very nice with breakfast in the morning and a free evening cocktail hour. The hotel is very nice with a tropical interior. All rooms open to the interior which overlook the garden area. They do offer a shuttle but have never used it.

I also forgot to mention with Embassy being all suites you get a separate bedroom, either king or two queens, microwave, refrigerator, sofa sleeper, very nice pool area and hot tub. It also has a dining room and fitness facility.

My next favorite hotel is Doubletree Biscayne Bay.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn & Suites Miami Airport South Blue Lagoon (http://www.hamptoninnmiamiairport.com/) and at the Hampton Inn & Suites Miami Brickell Downtown (http://www.hamptoninnmiamibrickell.com/). They are both nice and clean hotels with breakfast included and free Wi-Fi. They also have a paid shuttle to the port (I don't have children, so I didn't ask, but I assume that the shuttle company may provide car seats for children... Anyway, front desk should know it.) If you are going to spend some time in Miami, the hotel in downtown has more options for dinning and entertainment.
