* 2019 * - High Seas Rally: Hotels - High Seas Rally Biker Cruise Vacation

Hotels

 

H.S.R. Rally Hotels

 

 As always, before we recommend and block any rooms at any hotel, we inspect all aspects of that hotel, spend 1 night at that hotel and eat a meal there. Why? Because we don't just book the cruise, we organize every aspect of our events so our passengers get only the best.

Not all hotels are biker friendly...those listed below are
and both of them will take care of our group as we expect.

  2019 Contracts have now been signed and prices agreed upon and listed below. However, due to hotel policy..no rooms can be booked more than 1 yr in advance. 

Our Tampa Bay Port Hotel Area for 2019:

So convenient and so much to do:
Unlike the quiet, laid back tropical feel of Port Canaveral,Tampa Bay presents much much more to see and do before you get on the ship. All our designated hotels will all be within just a few hundred feet of each other. Very easy walking or even wheelchair distance between them. The Tampa Bay Lightning Pro hockey arena is just a couple football fields length away, Tampa Bay Bucaneers Pro Football stadium is just a couple miles away. The waterfront is as close as a few feet where you can rent boats or take water taxi's throughout Tampa bay waterfront. All day $5 Trollie right outside your hotel to shopping areas and Ybor (there version of Burbon Street in New orleans). Bars, restaurants, boardwalk, parks and civic center all right there at your hotels.  2 Harley shops less than 6 miles away.The Tampa cruise port itself is less than 1/4 mile away with the Florida state aquarium right beside the port terminal. AND believe it or not, very little car traffic in this area! It's really nice that they seperated the business side of town from the recreational/tourist side of town. So lots to do and see if you get in a day or 2 early and meet and re-untite with your sailing buddies. As you can imagine, all these things to do made for a tough time securing these hotels at these great locations. P.S. this is a pirate town with the Bucaneer Pro football team so it fits our logo perfect. "There's a little Pirate in every Biker".
 
Due to all these activities surrounding these 3 hotels and their perfect location, we could only initially block about 80% of the hotels room space for a total of 653 rooms. At 2 per room that’s 1306 of our 2200 passenger group. These hotels have agreed to add a few more rooms should they sell out as quickly as we expect but that still leaves us short nearly 900 people. So be ready when we e-mail you with the link and phone # to book your room. The HSR hotels normally sell out as quick as the balcony cabins on the ship.
 
Tampa International Airport: (TPA) Just 9 miles away. 15 minute taxi or shuttle to our hotels or port and just 1/4 mile from our hotel to our ships port terminal. Check out our "Travlin Ways" section of this website for more info on air travel recommendations.
 
Parking at our Hotels for those that drive or ride:
Parking at our hotels in Tampa is like most cruise ports. They are very proud of their hotel parking and all valet park. It’s a union thing. At least we did get our group discounted from $22 to $18 per night. Of course if you ride your bike, they won’t be parking motorcycles. You’ll park your own 2 or 3 to a spot under cover for less than half price. All cars will have to park at the port parking during the cruise week.
 
Parking at the Port: Ship port parking is very reasonable and right at the port terminal. When I say right at the port, I mean just about 150 feet from the terminal and they shuttle you and your luggage to and pick you up from the terminal. They even offer valet parking. You unload at the terminal, they park your car. When you return, you call them, they bring your car to you. How much easier can it get?
 
Car Rentals: 2 of our 3 hotels listed below offer car rental and drop off right at the hotel.
 
             
For those unfamiliar with our HSR hotel announcements. If you miss the first day of hotel sales, you'll most likely miss booking a room at our HSR hotels and that means you'll also miss a whole lot of fun with our group even before the ship sails. Please let us know ASAP if you have had an e-mail change since registering for the cruise. All registered 2017 passengers were notified per e-mail newsletter on Nov. 27. Good Luck.
