Port of Miami is Fab! A review of Holiday Inn Port of Miami Downtown
We had the chance to stay in the Holiday Inn Port of Miami before and after our Carnival Cruise to Grand Cayman & Jamaica. We chose this hotel because of the decent reviews here at tripadvisor.com & the cost.
The staff are friendly and multi-lingual, all speaking some form of English. With our Holiday Inn Priority card, we got free drinks from the bar (which housed all of 3 tables) and the drinks were tasty. We also had a chance to use their business center on the second floor. What a great idea - we were able to e-checkin to our flight for the following morning.
The room was nicely appointed with 2 beds, desk, 2 phones, a small table and 2 chairs. The bath, with it's marble counter, though small was beautifully decorated and accomodating. The windows opened a little wide for my taste with my 3-year-old wanting to see all the action below and at Bayside.
We overlooked Bayside both before and after our cruise. . . and we could see when our ship came in (and departed) from our rooms. There were great sights and sounds emanating from this little shopping mecca. It was very nice to be able to sample Bubba Gumps, Hard Rock Cafe, grab our favorite Starbucks, and loads of souvenir shopping right across the street from the Holiday Inn.
I would highly recommend Holiday Inn Port of Miami for your downtown Miami vacation or pre- & post-cruise accomodations.
