Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ginandgrands Overall met my needs
Overall we enjoyed our 1 day stay - convenient location to our destination, Miami Seaquarium. Restuarants at Bayside within walking distance. Only negatives were mosquitoes at the pool in the evening (citronella candles probably would have helped and the valets seeming to expect a tip when bringing our car around - very uncomfortable. I am of the belief that hotels should have complimentary parking for quests all the time.

I had a simple over-night trip and this place was convenient and comfortable. The restaurant waitress was very helpful at dinner. The room was quite and had a great view.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rhodora P. Convenient location to see a glimpse of Miami
As an overnight stay in Miami, I think I made the right decision of choosing this hotel. Parking was right at the backdoor of the hotel. Though I paid a fee, it gave me peace of mind that my car was safe til we came back in the afternoon of the following day after taking a tour.
The evening we arrived, we were able to walk to the Harbor mall in front of the hotel where a lot of action was, namely shopping, boat rentals, restaurants, loud Latin music which gave the ambiance of "la dolce vita" . Some people were even dancing salsa in the street...after all we were in Miami and what a welcome treat.
We were able to book a tour of the Everglades from this hotel where we were picked up and returned. For a less than 24 hour stay we were able to see and experience Miami enough to want to visit again. All because this hotel made it possible.
Our room had a view of Miami harbor, clean but just a bit smaller than the other rooms we had in this road trip. There was no free breakfast but we were given a 20% discount coupon for a restaurant adjacent to the lobby upon check in.
The parking lot boys, check-in and concierge
people were so accommodating. Our overall experience is excellent.

The hotel is very well located; restaurant looks dark and unfriendly and is not serving even a small bite during "non eating" hours.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sparklegirl66 Nice stay before cruise
This is our second stay at Holiday Inn Port of Miami. I love the proximity to the port and the Bayside market. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Concierge gentleman who works the afternoon shift was very helpful. For the second year in a row he helped us arrange our shuttle service to the port. He was so nice and I wish I could remember his name because he deserves recognition

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dave2474 great location and price
great place to stay if you are traveling on a cruise. minutes away from the cruise terminal. lobby looked great and service was good. recommend replacement of mattresses. sleeping was lacking due to sinking mattress and size. hotel considered a full bed a queen bed, so why my queen bed at home seem larger. great view from the sixth floor. parking is terrible especially the hotel charge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ITW Business Travel Road Warrior
I travel through South Florida weekly for business purposes. I select hotels based on comfort, ease of check-in, accessibility, and responsive/respectful staff.
Pros: While at this location, I enjoyed a wonderful room view, great helpful/friendly staff, and a terrific food/beverage experience, and steps away from a long list of shopping and restaurant options.
Cons: I prefer to sleep in a room with temperature no higher than 73 degrees. These rooms will not go below 75 degrees. Parking is valet with very few options otherwise.....$25 a day!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ethjos Pre and after cruise stay
Booked the Holiday Inn Port of Miami due to former good experience at this hotel. Convinced the rest of the travel group (6) to stay here pre and after our cruise. Their experience is positive. We booked this hotel for the closeness to the port of Miami but more for the available entertainment in the vicinity at night (Bay Side, Bongos). No driving required at night. The valet parking surprised me, used to self parking ($12), now $25. Pre our cruise we had a very nice room (711). After our cruise we had a nice room. Why not very nice, the temp control of the room was not good. But this is the only remark I (we) have. For the rest, a very pleasant hotel. Like I mentioned, we had stayed already, we will stay there again.

The Miami Holiday Inn provided a great, comfortable get away. We were able to relax, enjoy a complimentary breakfast and receive great service when the laundry machines broke. HI has the most comfortable beds I have experienced. Luckily, I had also booked a room at the Holiday Inn New York and was not disapointed!

My BFF, myself and our kids spent one night passing through as we were cruising out the next afternoon. We arrived at the hotel, valet parked my car, and were promptly checked in and Lazaro helped us to our room. He was very helpful in making this one night a GREAT one. His recommendation for dinner was right on point! What can I say, the staff is professional but, fun and that is what helps turn a nice stay into a great stay. I'll be back and spend a few nights when I take my next cruise. The only CON about this hotel...I wish it offered a free shuttle to the port.

The location of the hotel is minutes away from the cruise port. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. Bayside is across the street. We were able to get a good meal and shop a little. The staff was great. They were friendly and accomodating. I would definitely stay here again and will recommend it as a good hotel to stay. Also, Walgreens, CVS and other stores were within walking distance.

Myself and my family recently stayed at this hotel and although we enjoyed our stay there were issues that weren't pleasant.
Firstly there was no fridge in the room which for a 6 night stay was not acceptable.
I enjoyed taking advantage of the happy hours advertised on several days but on each occasion I went to the bar for a drink of about 6 draft beers advertised only 1 was available
We had dinner in the hotel one evening which I have to say was excellent, however had breakfast the next day which was very very poor.
Also the hotel is used as a transit for cruisers at the close by port of miami heading off on their cruises.
This resulted in frequently being wakened at 0400 hrs as we were in an adjoining room.
I tried to be placed in an alternative room but was told there were non available.
As we had a hire car the charge for parking was $25 plus tax plus a miami state parking tax making the overall charge over $30 per night. Again not acceptable. I didn't know the area so no alternative to parking
The one shining light for this hotel was the staff. Everyone was very pleasant and attentive.
Myself and my family still enjoyed our stay in Miami hut I would doubt if I would choose this hotel again

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ubaldo Desde que se remodeló el cambio en todo aspecto, fue notable.
Buen lugar para llegar a Miami y alojarse cerca del Aeropuerto luego de un viaje de 9 hs Migracianes y aduana, para descansar y recuperarse, visitar el Bayside y ahora, hacer shopping. Luego continuar viaje por la I95 al destino final.
Lo mismo para el regreso. Alojarse unos día antes del vuelo de retorno, cerca del Miami Intnl.Airport, devolver el auto en Hertz de 2nd. Street e irse tranquilo al Aeropuerto. Mejora la calidad de retorno,evita el stress de las 35 millas de rush-hours en la I95 y los tramites en el Aeropuerto.

My family and I had a great experience at this hotel, friendly , professional personnel, clean rooms and great, great location.
The only thing we did not like is that you need to pay about $ 30.00 dollars per day for the parking space since the hotel does not have a free guests parking area.

My wife and I had stayed at this location many years ago when the hotel was known as the Marina Park Hotel. We came back expecting to have a great time and were not in the least disappointed. Our only regret is that our stay had to be relatively short. Given the opportunity to do so, we shall stay at this wonderful hotel again. A very big "Thank You" to all staff members who helped make our stay so enjoyable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lesa2u My Favorite Hotel in Miami!!
The staff at this hotel is OUTSTANDING!! -- especially the manager and concierge. We stayed at the hotel on Sunday to depart for a cruise on Monday. When we returned from the cruise on Friday, we had a late flight so I wanted to rent a day room for a few hours but, unfortunately, the hotel was sold out. The manager and concierge still did everything they could to ensure that my 78-year-old mother and I were comfortable in the hotel lounge until we were ready to leave to catch our flight. As a Priority Club member, this truly made me feel like a valued part of the IHG family and that's why we only stay in IHG properties when we travel. They could have easily turned us away but, instead, they checked our bags and welcomed us. We had brunch at the hotel, printed our boarding passes and relaxed. It was a great way to wrap up our vacation in Miami after a fantastic cruise. I recommend this hotel highly and we'll definitely be back!

We greatly enjoyed our stay! Our room was very clean, spacious and had a wonderful view of the bay. We were welcomed by Romme who immediately took our luggage and as requested, booked us a wonderful tour of Miami!! He made us feel appreciated!! Thank you! The food at the restaurant was delicious! We loved the location and its close access to many attractions. We will definitely be back!!

As a busness traveller this is one of my top five hotels in my territory. This property offers a beautifully updated property (2013) and access to the Bayside Marina which offers great shopping, restaurants, and boat tours - just across the street. The rooms overlook the Miami Bay area which is a treat to see especially from the top floors. American Airlinesarena is two blocks away. You will have safe and secure parking if you drive there. They offer a full service restaurant and the breakfast staff is the best.. This is the best hotel for the best price in downtown Miami.
