We are staying at the Hard Rock Casino and Hotel. They travel agent, who I know I will never use again, said that it was hard to find a hotel in Tampa. This one, though it will be fun to be at at casino, does not have shuttle to the airport or port.
My sister gave me a cruising book that lists at least four more hotels in Tampa. Sometimes I think I'd be better to make all plans myself.
Hilton GArden Inn Tampa Ybor Historic District
Wyndham harbour Island Hotel
Tampa Marriott WAterside
