Cost of Taxi ride from Port of Miami to Element Miami Doral

Recommended Posts

I have a day room at Element Miami Doral - 3285 NW 107th Avenue Miami, Florida 33172 - near Dolphin Mall and would like to know how much  approx. would be a taxi ride?

Also how much approx. would be a taxi ride from Elements Miami Doral to Miami airport.

Doral is West of the MIA airport, so probably $35-40+ from POM to your hotel. UberX will be about 50-60% of that fare.

Which area of Miami will be in between POM and Miami Airport. 

Downtown Miami. The Mary Brickell area is very popular in downtown, and the Hampton Inn there is often suggested

How about Courtyard Coral Gables. Any idea how much much a taxi ride may cost from Port of Miami?

If you look at Google maps you will see that Coral Gables and Coconut Grove are farther away from the port than downtown, and at least as far or farther than the MIA airport.  A taxi from POM to MIA runs $28+, so you can get an idea of the fare to that hotel and other spots, or check a site like "taxi fare finder". Whatever the cab fare you can roughly estimate that the UberX or standard Lyft fare will be about 40% less. So if the cab fare is $40 then UberX will be about $24.

 

The Pullman hotel, near MIA used to offer day rooms and a free shuttle to the airport and nearby shopping and dining options. There is a hotel inside the MIA airport, cleverly called the Miami Airport Hotel, that offers short term rooms but does not have a pool.

 

What exactly are you looking for? When? Budget? A little more information will help the suggestions from the board to be closer to your target.

If you have a late flight and are looking to store bags and spend the day there are a few options.  Besides day rates at hotels (www.between9and5.com is one source to check) you can:

  • Uber/taxi to South Beach, pay to store your bags at The Luggage Lounge, and then you are free to explore - beach, boozy brunch, people watching, beach, hop-on/off bus tour, are deco architecture, etc.  When you are ready, collect your bags and then ride the Airport Flyer bus to MIA for about $3 each - or taxi for about $35+
  • Check out www.resortpass.com for large hotels and resorts offering day passes to their pool/spa/beach facilities.  Tip them to store your bags.

Have a great cruise! 😎
