Default Tampa hotel near port

Any reccomendations on a resonably priced Tampa hotel close to the port, that has a free shuttle to the pier/port and to the airport? Close to activitys and restaurants is also a plus.

I haven't been to Tampa yet, but we are planning to stay at either the Hampton in Ybor or the Marriott Waterside.

I think Doubletree Westshore would be your best bet. They offer a free airport/port shuttle.

It is not near the port, but it is very reasonable and they provide free transportation to and from the port. Try the Best Western on the westside. Stayed there last January.

Default hotels near tampa port

We stayed at the Radisson Riverwalk in 2004. It is now a Sheraton, but they still have the same offers as before. Free breakfast, free shuttle to and from airport/port. You can even leave your car in their lot for the week @ $5.00 per day. Its also walking distance to Channelside where there are shops, restaurants and an aquarium. I'll be staying there in July for my next cruise.Hope this helps.
