We stayed here for 2 nights pre cruise aware from previous reviews that the location was perhaps not the best. It certainly is a few blocks off the beaten track and late night walks maybe best avoided. Perfectly good for walking to dinner at some great places a few blocks away.
Rooms are looking a little tired as are the corridors but it did the job at a fair rate.
Breakfast is what you expect at a Hampton Inn and it adds greatly to the value. A recent innovation is a cocktail bar near the breakfast bar which we valued greatly!
The free shuttle to the cruise dock was good but bear in mind it may go to other hotels - despite what they say at the desk. Beware of buying returns to the airport for that shuttle from the cruise port - it was chaotic there and they had no system in place. We had to persuade a van driver after a long wait outside to take us to the airport along with another couple.
Will use this place again.
