Check "hotels" under "practical Advice" there has been alot of threads on there. We are staying at the Springhill suites, Others have recommeded 'Chase suites' due to free parking, free airport/port shuttle. and then there are some near port we did not check but " with priceline you can sometimes get them cheap so they say if American. " i see.

I've stayed at the Doubletree Westshore (booked on Priceline at $50/night), the Wyndam Westshore (booked on Hotwire at $78/night) and Chase Suites (booked on my own at $160/night for a 2 bedroom suite). All offer airport shuttle service. The Doubletree offers free shuttle to the pier. Chase Suites has a shuttle that used to be free but I think they now charge for it. Chase Suites does offer a free breakfast and parking if you drive there instead of flying in. Wyndam doesn't offer any transportation to the pier. If you don't have a large group, I would recommend the Doubletree. There were 6 of us when we stayed at Chase Suites so we really needed a large room. Wyndham was fine for one night, but I wouldn't want to have an extended stay there.

We stayed at the DoubleTree Guest Suites on North Rocky Point at $109/night (very inconvenient) but pre-cruise we stayed at the Wyndham Westshore @ $50/night and the service was incredible. (booked through priceline) Both are rather far from the pier $20+ so be prepared but both offered free shuttle to and from the airport.

We liked the Doubletree Suites at Rocky Point--Ask the shuttle to take you to the port and give a nice tip.
