We loved the Embassy Suites! They have free airport and port shuttles. Great breakfast and a nice seafood restaurant inside. Seapoint Village is across the street with many shops and restaurants too. If you're driving in, Embassy does charge $20/day parking! We have also stayed at the Best Western Bayside on Ash. They, too, have the free shuttles. We had a 9th floor balcony room and watch our ship come into port that morning. Many ppl like the Holiday Inn On The Bay, directly across the street from the port. Have fun planning.
