Stayed at the Hampton based on the other positive feedback we had read, and the availability of both airport and cruise terminal transportation. After a bad start with the airport shuttle, the rest of the stay and service was very good. We called from the airport pickup island for the shuttle. After waiting over 3/4 hour, we had seen the flamingo van drive by once without pulling into the pickup area. When we called back to the hotel, the clerk was very condescending and insisted we we not waiting in the correct spot. He directed us to walk, luggage in tow, two terminals over, to a second (identical) pickup island. After another wait of approximately 30 minutes, we were finally picked up. I'm still not sure why this hotel could only pick up at the one terminal, when every other hotel seemed to have no problem driving to the pickup islands at all the terminals (several of which we saw come and go multiple times).
Once we finally made it on the shuttle, the rest of the experience was very good. Check-in was smooth, we had a comfortable and clean room for a night of pre-cruise sleep. We found out the next morning that the hotel was packed, as 9 cruise ships were leaving port that day. In spite of the crowd, there was a good breakfast selection and we were able to find a place to sit. The front desk helped us find an earlier cruise port shuttle than we had been assigned the night before. The shuttle driver was friendly and talkative, even provding riders with directions on where to find the shuttle post-cruise if returning to the hotel. In spite of the frustrating start, I'd stay here again. The rest of the stay was good enought that I'd guess our airport experience was an aberration.
