    Hotel at Fort Lauderdale or hotel at Miami

    by lampropelma » Sun Mar 16, 2014 3:36 am

    I want just to know if you will reserve the same hotel than usual or if you will reserve a hotel at Fort Lauderdale?

    Is there also a meeting same place than before or at Fort Laderdale?

    To my opinion, better to stay at Miami and take taxi the 22 to go to the port of Fort Lauderdale, what do you think?

    Dorothy has put lots of work into securing a good place at FT. Lauderdale and I support her. I've done Miami enough and want something new as well as presumably cheaper.

    I have a nice room at the Hyatt in FLL close to port for my cabin mates & I but I also fully support Dorothy. I will wait to see what she comes up with before I pay for my room.

    I've always stayed in FLL and just rented a car and drove down to Miami for the beach party. Since Dorothy has been planning so hard for us to have the beach party in FLL, I will join in on those shenanigans! I want to be where all the action is \m/

    I'm intrigued by the details of a post from Dorothy (not a forumite I'm guessing?) on facebook. Sounds like a fairly elaborate plan.

    What days are ppl thinking of hitting town? With the new Thursday departure day, it sort of screws up the old, logical pre-weekend time for arriving. So far, I'd just planned to fly in Wednesday night, hit the hotel then head to the ship Thursday morning but will wait to confirm any plans until more developments are made clear.
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    My cabinmate and I stayed in Ft. Lauderdale this past year to be closer to the Amon Amarth show. We booked a room in this group of hotels called "North Beach Village". The room price was very reasonable ($115 a night or so) and we were within walking distance to all of the oceanfront restaurants, bars, and public beach. I would totally recommend it! A taxi from Miami to Ft. Lauderdale can run you up to $100 or more.

    I'll be going on this trip with the gf and she wants to visit Miami.

    Therefore I'll be staying in Miami before and after the cruise. If anyone wants to share a cab to the port and then back to Miami after, let me know!
    I'll be attempting to book somewhere in South Beach, since I really enjoyed that area last time.

    I might be in school the week of the cruise, so I'd try to skip as little classes as possible. That means I'd arrive the day before the cruise and leave the day the cruise is over. Will try and stay where everyone stays.

    If I'm not in grad school, I'll just follow Dorothy and everyone else. :cool:

    HI! This is Dorothy! So funny to see so many people posting about me lol!!

    Join the 70,000 Tons of Metal at Hollywood Beach Facebook group to keep up with group rates on hotels, events and parties in Hollywood Beach!

    I just got us a group rate at Riptide Hotel. We're going to take 20 of their 21 rooms. Obviously we'll need more hotels, but it's a good start!

    No, I'm not on the Forum much, so keep in touch on FB!!!

    I'll make sure to stop by the Ripside, where a lot of my friends will be staying. I'll be staying at Ocean Drive, just a couple of blocks away.

    We are a bunch of ppl already booked at the Historic Hollywood Beach Resort. Looks kind of crappy, but it's on the beach, very cheap and you can cancel until Jan 17 with no fee. I'll see if I find anything better later on, but I like to have secured room, just in case!

    Also booked at Riptide.
    Dorothy is making an amazing work with hotel recommendations and special offers, looking for places for beach/bar/restaurants parties.
    Hollywood will be the place to be as pre-cruise events next year without any doubt.

    Sounds like the Riptide will be the place to stay. Just made a request to join the FB group so hopefully I can get a room there too. I met a lot of cool people on the cruise but seem to have missed out on meeting people prior to the cruise!

    Yeah there are. I tried hostelworld and hostelbookers, but the dates I entered leading up to the cruise came back with nothing, but I don't know if that's because they're all booked out or it's too far in advance for the on-line booking system. Maybe you could try calling them.

    You've got plenty of time to plan for next year! There's been some talks of a pirate cosplay night while we take over the Pirate Republic. :mrgreen:

    Historic Hollywood Beach Resort still has rooms on booking.com for $94/night incl taxes, fees etc; FREE cancellation. It's still the best deal on the beach, and it's going to be full of Metalheads!!! Book now! Cancel later if you find something better - and tell the rest of us!

    Join the FB group: 70,000 Tons of Metal at Hollywood Beach to keep up with the plans :)

    Like Joey, I usually end up booking where Dorothy books, so I'll be at the Riptide Hotel in Ft. Lauderdale from Sunday night to Thursday morning. Gonna be a blast and am looking forward to getting wasted with you guys for a fourth time. :viking:

    What days is everyone going to Florida? I do not like the cruise is not a Mon-Fri, that always made it easier to stay the weekend before and weekend after.

    Is everyone going for a bunch of days before the cruise and leaving right after or what?

    I'm arriving the 21 and leaving the 26. I haven't bought the plane tickets yet so it may change, but that's what I'll likely do.

    We arrive on the 17th and leave on the 26th, so we have plenty of time to explore Miami and parts of Florida before the cruise

    may make more sense to spend more time beforehand... it used to be same amount before and after, but its such weird days now...

    No direct flight from Switzerland to Ft-Lauderdale so we'll be landing in Miami.
    I only did the 2013 cruise and the friend coming with me in 2015 never saw Miami. We'll probably stay there.

    I managed to book a hotel room at Historic Hollywood Beach Resort from Travelocity at $89/night. Booking.com didn't have anything left there last I checked. So, yeah, people who want to stay there might check that out. They had the cancellation thing, too.

    I'm pretty sure we've taken over this hotel. I can't wait for all the shenanigans we're going to get ourselves into at this place lol.
