Tampa hotels/motels for precruise - recommendations needed PLEASE

Recommended Posts

I normally research most everything myself, but for the life of me, I cannot make a decision on where to stay before our cruise in Tampa.  We will be traveling with 8 or 9 other couples and need a hotel/motel for one or two prenights in Nov. 2021.  I've been reading lots of reviews on tripadvisor.  I need a place that's nice, walking distance to restaurants, safe neighborhood, nice pool area.  I usually like to stay in 4* properties, but I don't know if everyone will be willing to shell out more than $150/$200/$250 for a night.  I've been looking at Tampa Marriott Water Street, the Westin Tampa Waterside, Quality Inn & Suites, Hampton Inn & Suites, even the Tahitian Inn Hotel Cafe & Spa, as it looks like it has a fun pool/bar area, and our friends like to have a few.  :).


I would be interested in getting feedback on properties you have stayed in, if it was a nice area, if the rooms were clean, what was around the area, and most of all, if you would stay at that property again.  Thank you.

Check out hotels in the Rocky Point area - many offer both airport and port shuttles (at least they did before the virus shut things down), nice area, several dining options within walking distance, and some offer parking deals if any in your group will be driving in.  Check out Chase Suites, Doubletree, Holiday Inn Express and others.
