We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn for 1 night pre-cruise. The property is located next to the airport and you will hear aircraft noise taking-off and landing so if you are very noise sensitive--you may want to book farther away from the ariport. We were too tired to notice it very much and our room faced the airport/runways. The Hilton Garden Inn Miami Airport West tends to be more of a business type property with smaller very nice and super clean rooms. K-cup brewers in every room was nice. Pool area was nice. This property will pick up from airport and also has shuttles going to cruise docks. Cruise shuttles run on schedule, are very efficient and cost approx $12 per person one way. Free wi-fi worked good and there is free coffee in lobby. There is a restaurant with bar on site with basic menu items and also a buffet in the mornings. This property functions well for business stays, one or two nights or if you have a car to reach other parts of the Miami area--also pre/post cruise. I wouldn't pick it for an extended vaction in the Miami due to it's location. I would recommend for pre/post cruise or easy access to airport. I would book this property again if I were cruising out of Miami or needed a night close to airport.
