We stayed here for just one night pre cruise. Taxi from airport is a set fare at $25 even for 6 people. The location is great and there is quick access to cabs as well as the trolley stop directly in front of the hotel. The room itself is standard embassy suites and very spacious. Bathroom was very nice and always handy to have the small bar sink in the living area. Plenty of room for us and our two "adult" kids.
We enjoyed the manager's reception and the breakfast in the am was excellent. We had two rooms next door to each other and my in laws had issues with noisy neighbors till the wee hours but we did not. The weather was cold when we were here but it looked like there were lovely areas to walk near the water front.
We also walked less than 5 minutes to a Publix grocery store to purchase wine before boarding the ship--they had an excellent selection! There is a starbucks in the lobby as well as a restaurant/bar available.
Definitely would stay here again!
