Tampa Cruise Hotels

There’s a lot to do in Tampa, especially near the port. Some area attractions include Busch Gardens, casino gambling, NHL hockey, MLB baseball, the Florida Aquarium, and the Museum of Science and Industry.

And while the city offers accommodations of all types, if you want to stay near the port you will have to pay a little more. The Port of Tampa sits right on the edge of downtown and is close to a number of things to do. That prime location means anything near the port will likely run more than $100 a night.

Below we list all the hotels within two miles of the port that rate a “7” or higher from guests on Kayak.com

This is by no means supposed to be all your choices — just those highly rated and close to the port. Prices represent a recent search for a Saturday night stay.

Deal Tip: Remember that many hotels allow you to park during your cruise and/or provide transportation to the port. Be sure to ask before you book.
