Doubletree Grand Hotel Biscayne Bay Review
Near the Port of Miami at the north end of downtown, this waterfront hotel offers relatively basic, spacious rooms and convenient access to and from the cruise ships and downtown, making it a good crash pad for budget-conscious cruise passengers. Some rooms have nice views of Biscayne Bay, but some are also in desperate need of refurbishment. The pool area was redone in 2012. A highlight here is the revamped marina, where you can rent Jet Skis or take deep-sea-fishing trips.
