It is a nice hotel even under construction on one side of the restaurant area. It is walking distance to a lot of shopping center for your last minute cruising essentials, and Walgreens is right across the street. It can get pretty crowded here especially if there's a convention. Overall, its a nice hotel with a really nice swimming pool... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel with no idea the property is under renovation...what a mistake. The front entrance is closed and the room was missing a refrigerator. I called and the front desk told me they were replacing all the refrigerators but had not gotten to our floor yet, but that she would send one up. It... More

This hotel IS close to the port. It is surprising to me that it is a Marriott property. Thankfully we had marriott rewards points for this one night stay. Hotel is old, staff not super friendly. Rooms are VERY small. Wish we would have stayed somewhere else directly on the beach and drove a little in further to port. Would... More

Stayed here for a night after the cruise. It's about a 5 minute ride from the cruise port. Lots of restaurants nearby. The regular check in time is 4pm but the receptionist gave us a room at 10am and complimentary wifi. Service was excellent. It was a comfortable stay. The only issue was the sound of people talking in the... More

We chose this hotel for it's proximity to the cruise port. The hotel was extremely convenient for our purposes. It was a $20 cab ride to get here from the airport to hotel, took about 15 minutes maybe less. Very friendly staff on arrival. There is an on-site cruise transportation company in the lobby ($6 pp. you can schedule your... More

This cruise port hotel was gorgeous, clean and convenient! Service was great, live music in the lobby and close to many restaurants AND Starbucks across the street. Hourly shuttles to the port with luggage service. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a clean spacious hotel with a spacious lobby and rooms. The lobby was under construction during my stay so they only had the small lobby bar open. We had to order out because we came in to late. I love elbow room. We had a double bed setup and in the middle it was equipped with electrical outlets... More

I was in there for a conference that was being held at the Marriott harbor beach. This was one of the over flow hotels. I got there at 11:00 in the morning and was given my room. I was so grateful because I had been on the road since 4:00 am. The desk person was very considerate. They are currently... More

We were disappointed to find out that this hotel was under renovation when we arrived. We did not reveive any notification of the current work from the hotel or from Marriott prior to check in. You can see they're attempting to make a mediocre upgrade to the rooms and lobby bar area. The water pressure in the shower is non-existent,... More
