Default Park and Cruise - Tampa

Can anybody recommend a hotel where we can park our car and then get a shuttle to the cruise port and back? I found a couple at $160-170 per night, but I would like to find something a little cheaper. Thanks,

Hi

We parked at the cruise terminal and walked across the street to the ship. $20 a day.

Have you tried hotwire? They usually have good deals for Tampa. You can choose all of Downtown area (they are all nice) and the Westshore area. Just be sure to choose one with at least 3 stars so you know they have a shuttle. If you don't stay in a hotel the cruise parking is right across the street from the port. Very easy to use

We decided to book the Hampton Inn & Suites Tampa/Ybor City downtown. We got a price of $99 for the rooms (plus tax) and $45 parking for the vehicles.

Default sleep, park and cruise in Tampa

We just returned from a cruise out of Tampa, and stayed at the Quorum Hotel. They offer free parking during the length of the cruise as well as a free shuttle service to the pier. The hotel is a business-type hotel well situated near two malls and food. Customer service was excellent all the way around. I think our room rate was approximately $129.00 per night. I would highly recommend this hotel especially if you need to park your car for the length of the cruise. Inside garage parking with a security guard free of charge...how can you beat that?
