Default Tampa Hotel

Looking for a Tampa hotel that will pick up at the airport and then shuttle
to the pier the next day. MUST be in a safe area and less than $150/night.
Any ideas?

Thanks,
Injun Joe

We stayed at Chase Suites last year and they offered pick up at the airport and shuttle to the pier. Nice, clean hotel on the water. They also offer a free continental breakfast.

All of the downtown hotels in Tampa are nice. If you do a search on any of the travel sights and only choose the downtown area they will all pull up. The port is located in downtown tampa which runs a trolley to Ybor City (they have hotels-a little pricey and not the best area for an overnight stay. If the downtown hotels are too pricey try the Westshore area. They have more choices and I'm sure most offer shuttle service to the port.

Marriott Waterside has rates from their website for $149. and it has a great rating, and very close to the cruise dock.

Just got back and stayed at the Doubletree this year. They also offer shuttle service from the airport and to the pier (no free breakfast though unless you're on concierge level).

Try the LaQuinta Tampa Airport. I have stayed there many, many times as my 2 kids go to the University of Tampa. It is across the street from the airport and convenient to the International Mall. There is an IHOP next door. They offer a wonderful continental breakfast in the morning and have a nice pool area. They offer free airport shuttle and offer transportation to the pier for a small charge. The hotel itself is reasonably priced and is very clean with a friendly staff. There are no elevators if this a problem for you (it has 2 floors) but if you request first floor (as I did when my parents were with us) they make sure to honor your request.

We just stayed (5/26) at Amerisuites Westshore which is just about 3 miles from the airport; offers airport shuttle and a great hot & cold continental breakfast. Got the $72 King non-smoking suites on valuetrips.com. Call the hotel directly first to see if they would shttle to the Tampa port. I did not use it for a pre-cruise. we clean and staff were very friendly and accommodating.
Bon Voyage
