Curious question:
If one is staying at the Waldorf which is relatively close to the airport, what's stopping you from hiring a private boat-taxi for $100 to get to the hotel and saving a few hundred $$ per person?

Nothing except the inconvenience, logistics, and perhaps safety concerns.

A simple Google search brought up several websites that offer private speedboat transfers to the hotel of your choice. You input your flight information and they meet you at the airport same as the hotel does. No hassle.
As long as it is an established company with good reviews what safety concerns are there?

I am just trying to understand why anyone would pay $600 a person for two 20 minute boat rides.

Very cool; never looked into it.  But seems like it could be a way to save significant money.
