We chose this hotel as it provided a free shuttle to the Port of Miami prior to our cruise. When we arrived to the Miami airport we took the shuttle to the hotel. It was a very short ride as the hotel is close. We arrived to the hotel after a long day of travel and we were very hungry for dinner. Not many options are nearby with the exception of a Subway. The hotel only has a small cafe, but doesn't have very good dinner options. We ended up ordering pizza and picking up some beer from the cafe. No free breakfast options are available and the paid options were very limited. We ended up walking to a Dunkin Dounts (about a mile away) as we had time to kill before the shuttle to the port and figured the walk would be good prior to a week long cruise!
The proximity to the airport means that you can hear planes take off at most times, but it didn't bother us at all. The hotel was clean, though was dated and did smell of smoke in a few areas.
We signed up to be on the first shuttle to the port which didn't leave until 10:30. In hindsight, we would have preferred to get to the port earlier and would have paid for Uber or some other service. Our cruise line (NCL) said they wouldn't start boarding until noon, but the sooner you get to the port, the sooner you can check-in and be in an earlier board group. The later shuttle prevented us from getting there early.
The shuttle was a private service and was friendly and efficient. They had a large shuttle bus with a trailer for luggage. For a $10 per person fee they would pick you up after the cruise and take you back to the airport.
Overall, the hotel was what we were searching for and chose it due to the free shuttle.
