Not a very nice hotel, we had a lot of problems a years back, the hotel has outside corridors, the rooms were not very pleasant, the hotel staff wasn't very nice, and we waited forever to get a ride to the port.
We have stayed at AmeriSuites, and Comfort Suites and had a lot better luck. Both had free breakfast, free shuttle to the port, and there were places to eat all around.
The hotel is located on 1800 Federal Hwy, it is close to a bunch of places to eat, and you can take their shuttle down to the downtown area to shop and walk a long the river walk, there is also water taxi's there also you can get on down town that take you along the canal and out to the ocean. We took a tour with the cruise lines after our cruise and it was on bus and then on boat. The shuttle will then come back and pick you up when you are ready. It worked out great! If you have any more questions let me know!
