MIAMI PRINCESS HOTEL ON 11TH ST

Recommended Posts

Hello, I saw fair reviews of this hotel as a good place to stay for a one night before a cruise since it has a free airport shuttle. I went to website & it said to call for reservation. I did & all the guy wanted was the date of stay & my name, nothing more. I asked if I would get a confirmation of any sort he said "no, just use my name". I booked because rate was $25 less than booking sites & I was on the phone with him. Since we're arriving at 8pm I'm a little scared of not having a room at that price - or even a room. Has anyone had experience good or bad with booking directly with this hotel?

Having a markup rather than a discount when booking on a consolidator website is a pretty big red flag.

As is the 25% who rate this property "poor" or "terrible" on Tripadvisor.

Based on the reviews it seems that walk-ups are pretty much this hotel's preferred method of operation--especially as they also offer hourly rates. 

So as I see you are posting on a roll call for a March 31 cruise, I wouldn't be satisfied with a wholly unconfirmed, non-deposited pseudo-reservation on a peak season weekend.

The TripAdvisor negative reviews shouldn’t be ignored. Even if the hotel has the reservation it doesn’t look like a comfortable and clean  place to stay.

Seems like any hotel that has any better rating is $400/night . I just want a place to sleep (arriving about 9pm & leaving 9am). I was really hoping someone who has first hand experience with hotel will chime in.

Sounds like you had better forget that one, and search for a hotel near airport!!!

Do NOT stay at a place that is know to rent rooms by hour!!!

I would not stay there. There has to be another airport hotel with decent rates with an airport shuttle. There are tons of hotels by the airport.

No, I would not stay at this hotel.

 

Keep in mind bad hotels in Miami aren't usually speaking of dirty rooms but crime.

That hotel has the 836 'freeway' behind it.  Very, very busy road.  It's also in a Spanish speaking neighborhood, which I'm not saying is a bad thing, I'm just saying.  And, it's very close to the end of the runway at the airport.  I wouldn't stay there.
