I didn't realize there was an Embassy closer to the pier. We're at the Westshore, which I assume is the same one you were at, i.e., near the airport.
I agree with you re the tipping. Gets old pretty fast. I'll have to do some more research to find that Embassy near the pier. I'm sure they will have a shuttle to their hotel and then we'll be that much closer for taxi the next day.
Thanks for the heads up.
