I too, am not familiar with that particular hotel, but having said that, Rocky Point is a very nice area to spend the night. Right on Old Tampa Bay, and just West of the airport. Probably 20 to 25 minutes to the pier from there. I think there is a Holiday Inn on Rocky Point as well, and they too offer the "park and cruise" option. In any case, not a bad area, and you shouldn't have to worry about your safety, or the safety of your vehicle.
