9 Hotels Near Miami Cruise Port with Free Parking & Shuttle

9 Hotels Near Miami Cruise Port with Free Parking & Shuttle Package

Jeremy CamosseMay 19 2021Travel
Here are the ONLY 9 Hotels Near Miami Cruise Port with FREE shuttle and parking packages available.
Unless you live in Southern Florida, it's likely you'll be flying or driving a ways before boarding your ship. Either option requires some additional planning and expenses. We're here to help you minimize those expenses. Here you'll find the best Miami hotels offering "park & stay cruise packages."
Best Miami Cruise Port Hotels with Shuttle Service
Shuttle vs Self Parking vs Uber
We're not quite ready to dive into our recommended hotels near Miami Cruise Port. First, let's dicuss getting to the Port of Miami. You'll have the options of shuttle, self-parking, or ride-share (like uber).
MIAMI CRUISE PORT SHUTTLES: Before Uber came along, this was one of the biggest factors in choosing a hotel near the Port of Miami. This was once a significnat expense, particulary for larger families! An airport or cruise shuttle costs roughly $10 per person, per trip. Let's assume that you'll be flying into Miami and shuttling to port. For a family of four, this would total $160 in round trip expenses to and from the airport and cruise terminal. That's equivalent to 16 Lido Deck Daiquiris! Nope. No thanks.
Hello, Uber.
You'll find that many hotels no longer offer shuttles to Miami Cruise Port. They simply can't compete with Uber, Lyft, etc. An Uber will cost roughly $10 from Miami Airport to your hotel. You'll pay the same from your hotel to the Port of Miami. And that price is per car rather than per person! Instead of paying $160 for shuttles, you'll pay less than half of that with Uber.
That said, some hotels still offer this cruise port shuttle perk. We note those below.
Shuttle = Old School CoolSome of us are old-school and prefer a shuttle. We mention a few advantages to a shuttle below. This is a shuttle free judgement zone. We're just here to provide you with all the info and options. You do you!
MIAMI CRUISE PORT PARKING: Unfortunately, there's no cheap AND convenient solution to the parking situation in Miami. If you're driving, you'll need somewhere to park your car for the week-or-so while cruising.
Parking costs near Miami Cruise Port are steep. While many hotels offer the option, it'll cost roughly $40 per day. An 8-day vacation will set you back $320 (or 32 daiquiris)!
You can also choose to park at the Port of Miami rather than your hotel. There you'll pay around $20 per day. This is a decent option, but includes a few drawbacks listed below.
  • Convenience: Parking at the port will require you to retrieve and repark your car multiple times. Miami is one of the world's busiest cruise ports and that'll be obvious in the self parking lot at port. Finding a spot on a busy debarkation day can get awfully stressful.
  • Door to Door Service: If parking at port, you'll need to handle your own baggage. Depending on the space you get, this could be more or less difficult. Taking a shuttle or Uber to port means much less walking and baggage handling.
  • Traffic & Directions: Miami has terrible traffic. The city isn't the easiest to navigate as well. The combination can lead to some headaches on the day of or after your cruise. Your shuttle or Uber driver will be much more familiar with the best ways in and out of Miami Cruise Port.

Should I park at a hotel or at the Port of Miami? There are several factors to consider when deciding whether to park your car at a hotel or at port. The most obvious include parking costs, shuttle expense, and convenience. We go into more detail on each above.
How much is a hotel shuttle to the Miami Cruise Port? A shuttle will cost between $5 to $10 per person to and from cruise port. An Uber (or similar service) will cost about $15 per car each way.
