Room was very clean and comfortable. Pleasant staff. Walked along River Walk at night. Close proximity to several restaurants. Stayed here the night before our Royal Caribbean cruise. Managers Reception at 5:30- 7:30 snacks, drinks okay, nothing special- chips, salsa, pretzels. Internet is $15.00 for the night (i consider this a minus) A huge plus and savings was the proximity to low cost/public transportation. Arrived at airport, checked for possibility of hotel shuttle but was told there was not one. Made our way to taxi/transport area, hoping to possibly share a cab. While waiting we noticed the HART bus to the left. Walked over and asked driver if he went near Convention Center. Why, yes! Within a few blocks. How much? $2 a person. Fabulous!. And it was an easy walk with wheelie luggage. At noon, trolley starts right outside the front entrance. Hopped on with our luggage for $2.50 person, directly to RC port. Return trip to airport was a bit of a longer walk to Marion/N. Whiting Stop for Bus #30. Bus drivers very helpful.
