Wonderful place to stayfrom lovesecrets
A good precruise stayfrom josiedeedee
t do it againfrom A TripAdvisor Member
When we arrived at the HI the lobby was packed with people waiting to check in or out for the cruises. We were happy that our room was ready. We were staying 1 night after the cruise. The room was very nice and the view of the bay and the cruise ships was beautiful. I could have sat looking out the window all day but I couldn't wait to get down to the pool. The pool is very small and the water was freezing. There is construction going on right in the back of the hotel. The seating area is also very small and most of the loungers were taken by people who have all their luggage. I guess they were either waiting to leave for their cruise, an air flight or a room. Because of all the high buildings there really was not much sun.
We stayed at this hotel because the last time we were in Miami we went to the Bayfront shopping area and had a good time. The second visit was disappointing. The area seemed different.
I also want to let you know that if you are returning from a cruise the taxi drivers do not want to take you from the port to the hotel because it is such a small fare. There was a moan when we told them where we wanted to go and the taxi driver seemed mad that he got such a small fare and the only thing he said was I want 1 dollar for the bridge toll. It's a 6 dollar fare. At least the 4 dollar tip made him smile.
Since our cruise came in early in the morning, the next time I would book a 2o'clock flight and take the tour offered by the cruiseline to the Everglades or go all the way to the airport and stay at one of those hotels if I needed to. There is nothing wrong with the hotel. I just would do things differently next time because I felt bored and thought that it was a waste of time sitting at the hotel all day when I could have gone home.
DISAPPOINTED AGAINfrom A TripAdvisor Member
night before our cruise Nov 6 2004from A TripAdvisor Member
My only complaint was at checkout, dozens of other guests were leaving for cruises too and the elevators were terrribly slow. We tried the stairs, but none of them led to the lobby! You had to wait for an elevator.
If you are taking a cruise out of Miami, this is the hotel to stay in before or after.
Nice hotel for the price!from A TripAdvisor Member
Nice rooms, good pricefrom jomar_figaroa
Very nice hotel. The rooms are a bit small, so i would not recommed it for long stays. Everything in the room (and all of the hotel) seems like it's pretty new. My guess is that it must have undergone a renovation recently. The private parking in the back of the hotel is a plus. The location is also great, since it's right across the road to Bayside Marketplace, which is a shoping mall right on Biscayne Bay offering quite some stores and restaurants.
The price of the room (we got it at US$ 89.00 the night) was very good, considering the location and the competition (other hotels in that area were eighter cheap but bad or nice but outrageosly expensive). I would surely recommend this hotel!
Much better than expected!from A TripAdvisor Member
Expecting the worst, all four of us were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were big and clean, the staff was very friendly, and the location (right across the street from Bayside Marketplace) was FANTASTIC! Yes the pool was small, but I came here for a cruise, not to swim laps.
We paid $85.00 per night (booked throught Holiday Inn website), and it was money well spent.
I will definitely stay here again the next time I cruise out of Miami.
Pre cruise favoritefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Nothing special, and overpricedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
One bit of advice: if you're too near the top floors, you hear the frequent airplanes overhead, all night long; if you're too close to the ground, the noise from open-air concerts at Bayside can be deafening. Best bet, stay on the 6th or 7th floor. Also keep in mind that not all floors have ice machines, if that's important to you. Also handy to know: there's a second, unisex "public" bathroom on the second floor, right next to the elevators (where the marketing office used to be).
Now, if the renovation has changed any of this, I'll be sure to let you know.
Top Local Tips for Miami
Don't get a rental car if you 're going to stay here. Don't get a rental car if you stay at this hotel as parking is a big hassel
Trans Floridian Shuttle service was great We used TransFloridian Shuttle service through Miami411.com and were very pleased with both companies. We were transported from Ft. Lauderdale airport and to the ship and back the same route. The driver was very efficient and safe.
pre-cruise Great for a one night stay before your cruise! Lots to do around the area!
