This was a good hotel with the exception of the confusing front entrance off 7th Ave. We stayed here prior taking our cruise. The hotel provides a free shuttle to the port and a $5 dollar tip covered the 4 minute drive. YBOR city itself is a crazy place on a Saturday night. It is in walking distance from the hotel, even at night. I'm a cop and didn't feel naked without my gun. Highly suggest eating at Fresh Mouth restraunt, 5o's style diner. Lots of different shops on 7th Ave and if you're in the mood for a tatoo or cigar you'll be in heaven. I would steer clear of the cross-dresser though. Overall, go place to stay pre-cruise. Taxi service from the airport is a flat-rate of $25.00 versus $20.00 per person on the Super Shuttle. The room was spacious and had a comfortable bed. I would ask for a room that overlooks the port (nothing fancy though) better than the view of the vacant building on 7th Ave.
