Because this hotel is so well located it is normally completely book and thus crowded. It also allows them to charge a premium price (you can stay at the Hilton for the same money). Hotel is old and needs to be updated.

I understand that I'm near the convention center, which is why I booked here, but mediocre hotel at best. Ice machines not working on my floor , nice TV but only 11 digital channels, all the rest were analog channels that didn't tune in. And for that rate, could I get an actual glass in the room except tiny plastic...

Close to north gate of cruise ship terminal. Close to strip malls, stores and restaurants. Free wifi. Free shuttle from airport. Free breakfast. Onsite 3rd party shuttle service to cruise terminal will charge you $8 per person. For $10 including tip, a cab can take 4 people. Duh.
