I assume this is the correct Sheraton- the one just south of the Airport

tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g34168-d84311-R…

and if so, I am sorry , but there are no stores at all anywhere near it- it and the Hilton hotel as well are built on a "greenway" which is a large grassy area around the airport where no other development has taken place at all- no shops restaurants or anything else is nearby- no drugstore or grocery at all.

I would assume you are going on a hotel sponsored shuttle bus, and if so, I don't know if you or any other passengers could convince the driver ( perhaps with a pooled tip) to stop somewhere in transit- there really aren't many places on the way up to the Port from there I can think of though-I know the area well and passed right by it today. We went right up Federal highway beyond the Airport to the Port and it is a very industrial area- I can't think of anyplace enroute that sells water and the nearest grocery store I can think of would be a taxi ride away- the Publix on Griffin Rd west of I-95 - quite a distance. Maybe another local can think of another store- but I've lived here 30 years and can't- it's in a very odd location.

That Publix Supermarket I'm thinking of shows as 1 and a half miles west of the hotel on Griffin on Google Map. I checked on a Walgreens Drugs too and that is 2.2 miles east and south of the hotel so it's no closer. maybe someone else has seen something I haven't.Taxi fare would be less than $10 each way, so if you are in the night be fore, you may want to go get it then by taxi. I can't think of any alternative plan.
