Hyatt Place, formerly the Amerisuites, is right near the port, and shopping, has a pool and shuttle service.. I have stayed here and the location is the best. ...here is the link.

We are also looking into a hotel with airport and port shuttles. Our flight arrives after 10pm so we are just looking some clean but cheaper hotel.

The Embassy Suites has a cruise rate that includes breakfast buffet, Manager's Happy Hour and transportation to the pier. We have stayed there four times and have always been very satisfied. And yes, they have a pool as well. There is also an Outback Steakhouse about 1 block away.

Looked good, and what I wanted to pay. Unfortunately it wasn't available for night of Jan 9, to bad. Thanks for the post.

I did book at La Quinta for $148 plus tax for a single. Thanks for the code. I'm still hoping to get something cheaper.
