Hotel for one night during Christmas season 2012 and ferries

We are arriving in St. Thomas on Dec. 20 and plan to head to Road Town, Tortola, on the (last) ferry so that we are ready to board our (captained) sailing trip at noon on Dec 21 at Village Cay at the marina in Road Town. We are looking for a hotel in Road Town for the night of Dec. 20. Any ideas which hotels would be really convenient to this marina AND would let us just stay one night (tho we will need 3 rooms for us and the grown kids and spouses)?

On the other end of the trip, we want to spend the night of Dec. 28 in Charlotte Amalie so we'll be able to catch our flight back on Dec 29 to the US without having to worry about ferry delays, etc. Any thoughts on a hotel convenient to the airport that will allow just a one-night stay (tho, again, 3 rooms)?

Also -- any advice on whether to take the fast ferry or the slow ferry? And which companies?

I would suggest 'Maria's by the Sea'. We have stayed there many times and always been pleased. Clean and comfortable. Walking distance from the ferry pier. Right down town. Nice bar, decent food - walking distance to many other restaurants. Ferries are a real toss up. Read the forum post "Road Town Fast Ferry Delays Beware". Remeber you are on 'Islandd time. Most of all sit back relax and have fun.

I agree - Maria's By the Sea. With regard to the ferries, we usually just take the one that has the most convenient schedule from Road Town to Charlotte Amalie.
