We booked the Crowne Plaza for one night before a Caribbean cruise. The positives: The hotel has a free shuttle from the airport. The room was quiet. The negatives: The hotel is in an industrial area and there is nothing much nearby that you can walk to in the evening. The hotel decor is "cheap" modern and the rooms look pretty tacky. The bathrooms aren't the cleanest.
Be forewarned: The hotel has a desk in the lobby that offers a fee-based shuttle service called All Stars to the cruise port. They urge you to buy a round trip ticket for $10 per person that will take you back to the airport after your cruise. They promise that they run every 15 to 20 minutes, but in fact, there was a large group waiting for over an hour. The shuttles were too small to hold everyone. Meanwhile we could have taken one of the many taxis available and paid less. We had a very bad experience and so did many others. Make other arrangements.
