Subject: Hotel in Miami II
Hi Judy, following my previous message, after a second thought if your main concern is shopping I would suggest staying at the MIAMI DADELAND MARRIOT hotel. fax 305 670 7540, phone 305 279 8688. This hotel is located in Kendal across the street( + a huge parking area) from Dadeland Mall, which is one of the best malls in Miami if not the best. The good thing is that this hotel offers complimentary airport and shopping shuttle on a daily basis. Kendal is located in the South far from the ocean . Only attraction if you stay there would be shopping. The hotel is next to the last stop of the Metrorail, and elevated train that can take you in a few minutes to downtown Miami. The thing is that downtown Miami is not very exciting except for the Bayside Market Place area, this is a retail, dining and entertaiment complex located by the bay among other attractions boats offer tourist routes . A water taxi stops in Bayside and depending on the season can take you to South Beach and other locations. ( Have to check , should you be interested) One more thing this Marriot Hotel is aprox. 45 minutes from the airport.
