We are cruising on Celebrity Horizon 4-15-04. We are looking for a hotel that will pick us up at the airport and shuttle us to the port the next day. Preferably something not too expensive as we will need to book another room in Norfolk on the return
We stayed at the Chase Suites hotel. They offered free airport pickup and shuttle to the pier. They also have a free breakfast buffet. We plan to stay there again in April 2005.

We have had very good luck with the Tampa Airport Hilton, it's about 2 miles from the airport and across the street from the large Int'l Mall which has several restaurants to choose from. We called for the airport shuttle and they said it would be a 20 minute wait and they had us picked up in about 10 minutes. Once at the hotel they had a very organized port shuttle program, they let us sign up for the time we wanted to go which was the 11:30 port shuttle and we were all loaded up and leaving the hotel at 11:15 I was very impressed with the Hilton staff and organization.
The hotel was very nice, rooms very spacious, a great heated pool which the kids loved, the hotel shuttle was also available to take you out to restaurants or the mall. we found a internet rate of $56 for very nice accomodations.
To martinezfguy Please e-mail me and let me know how you got this rate of $56 for the Tampa Airport Hotel - and if the shuttle next day to the Pier for the Ship was complimentary or what did it cost? I assume the airport shuttle will pick you up complimentary? from the airport to the Hotel-- you stated it was approximately two miles. How far to the Pier? -- I would appreciate more information on this hotel and how to contact them to get this rate -- or how you got this rate? Thanks very much. email@example.com
