I need some input for reasonable hotels with airport shuttle and breakfast near Houston International for night before the cruise. Also need to rent large vans to hold 10 people each to port from airport. Does anyone know about either of these requests?
Can't help you with the Van, but would suggest you check Hampton Inn, Airport. We are staying at the Hampton Inn at the Hobby Airport next Friday. $54.00 per night plus tax and includes full hot breakfast. Sounds like a winner to me. NMNita
The cruise terminal in Houston is in La Porte, 40 miles from Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), so you might want to consider renting your vehicles at the airport and staying at a hotel in La Porte. Both Avis and Hertz have drop-off facilities a few miles from La Porte.
How are you getting from your hotel to the cruise pier? I'm doing the cruise on January 29, but I'm tentatively planning to spend Friday night in La Porte because it looks like it's about an hour's drive from IAH to the pier.
We are staying at Baymont Inn at the airport on the 14th Jan. I saw a rate of 49.00 online and called the hotel to match it. I am renting a car from enterprise for 13.00 and it can be picked up at IAH and dropped off at Laport where they will shuttle us to the pier. Hope it works as well as scheduled!
Also trying to get a small group to La Porte on Friday night but noticed that the La Porte Enterprise office is closed on the weekends. Enterprise confirmed this over the phone. Anyone else find a better way to get to La Porte? Any hotels offer a shuttle to the Pier? I have until March to figure this out, so no stress.
Norweigen offers a shuttle to the airport. I am not sure if it is only if you have air tickets from them. You can also rent a car from the terminal where the sea drops you off. They also have an excursion to houston a tour through it and ending at the airport.
