    Im not sure how fancy of a hotel your looking for, but we have blocked off rooms at The Laquinta Inn. Rates are about $100 a night and we will only be arriving one day before our April cruise. The perks are what sold me. They offer shuttle service to and from the  maimi airport and also offer a FREE shuttle to the port on cruise day. Breakfast is included as well as internet. They have pretty good reviews on trip advisor. Again only needed one night and something as close to the port as possible so this hotel was perfect for me and my guests.  Also a good note to know : you can block off rooms to lock in a good rate now and there is no obligation on your part. Any rooms not booked by your guest in the required amount of time ( i think they give you 30 days before check in date) are just released back to the hotel. So again you lock in a rate now and can cancel at anytime if you find something else. Also I believe if you need to make arrangements to be picked up from the port they will for about small cost per person. They bring you back to the hotel and you can use the free airport shuttle to get back to the airport. Good luck in your planning and I hope this helps.

You also have to pay for breakfast at Hilton.  Thats one expense taken off of your guests, who already have plenty of expenses I am sure.

        Awesome, thank you!!
