This Marriott is not near the port area, it's in the business district.. about 15 /20 minutes away...there are restaurants within walking distance. If it were me I would perhaps ask to be closer to the port area...The Renaissance Hotel, is on A1A, close by Harbor Place Shops, and some nice restaurants...part of the Marritt group too..check if this hotel has free shuttle service...

Trip, with her book & tea!

We stayed at the Marriot North in Dec before our Coral Princess cruise. A very nice and quiet hotel. Are you taking Princess transfers to your cruise?
If so the xfers go to and from the hotel to the pier. Very convenient, give the bags to the Princess rep and the next time you see is in your cabin.
The breakfast is reasonable right in the hotel.

Ships Sailed:

SS Ithaca , Volendam , Mariner of the Seas (x2) , Veendam , Coral Princess , Island Princess (x3) , Emerald Princess,Sapphire Sapphire (x3),Diamond Princess
