Airport Transportation

I will be getting there April 14th (woo hoo) we are staying at the Hard Rock. My package did not include transportation from airport to hotel, any suggestions? Does Hard Rock have a shuttle?

i'd go with a taxi.
it's quick and about $35.


for the return back to the airport, use the car service from the hotels.
believe it is $50.
bell hops at the hotel can set that up for you.


the shuttle service takes a long time to reach the hotel.
they do other hotel stops along the way.
you would be paying per person for the shuttle.

If you book a round trip car service between the airport and HRH, inquire about a grocery stop from the airport to the hotel. Car service will typically cost between $100 to $150 for roundtrip service, and many services will include a free 30 minute grocery stop if requested. You can pick up snacks, water, soda and liquor at the grocery store, which will be cheaper than buying them at the hotel, Citywalk, or the parks.

I've used Ed Korgan before. He was recommended by posters on here. I used him a couple of years ago, and I just booked him for our summer trip.

Here's the link to his website:

His fee is $100 round trip. He includes a grocery stop. I highly recommend him!

I've also used Ed Korgan in the past. He used to post here on the DIS on the Transportation board, but I haven't seen him lately. Anyway, I too highly recommend him.
