Where to stay late night arrival

Our plane arrives (if everything is on time) at Miami airport at 10:40 pm. Once we clear customs and find a taxi it will likely be close to midnight before we arrive at our hotel. Will it be easy to find a taxi this late at night? Should we head into town or just stay at an airport hotel and catch a shuttle. As we are travelling with our two children safety is a big issue.

Hotel MIA is right in the terminal and very convenient. The lobby is on the ticketing level. Rooms run about $125 a night.

Thank you - right in the airport sounds great although the rooms look like they run about $200 for the four of us....

Sandy,
Spend the extra. The area around the airport isn't very nice, and the cheap hotels there are pretty scary, IMO.

At that time of night there would be plenty of taxis in front of the airport, no problem. If you don't want to spend the $200, take a taxi to one of the downtown hotels near the port. The Marriott has a special for $89 a night, sleep in late and get to the port at 1 pm. At that time of night there will be no traffic and you can be at the hotel in less than 15 minutes, you can even make Miami Beach in 20 minutes and stay at the Eden Roc for $89 and the next day take a quick swim in the ocean before you leave for the port.
