We chose this hotel as part of a very reasonable Cruise/Park/Stay package as we were leaving on the Carnival Legend the next day. All went perfectly. The room was quiet, very clean, the bed was comfortable, coffee maker available in the room, and the location was fantastic! It was kind of cool sleeping in the middle of office buildings, we are not business people so I thought this was pretty unique! Best of all, there is a mall across the street as well as a drug store for anything you might have forgot while packing for your cruise. Also there are many restaurants nearby all within walking distance.
I had originally wanted to use points to book this hotel but wasn't really sure how that would work with the parking and the shuttle, and the reservation clerk wasn't very helpful with this, so I just paid and saved the points. However, in the future, I would probably use my points, park in the garage (just don't park in the spots that say "reserved") and book my own shuttle through Blue One (the company the hotel used). They charge $20 per person round trip to the cruiseport and were really great, on time, and professional. We were one of the first people off the ship, and there they were waiting and took us back to the hotel for our car. Very easy and stress free!
I would defintely reccomend this hotel and would stay here again!
