The modern-chic earth-tone lobby of this bay resort will make you feel like you've arrived somewhere much more expensive. The Water's Edge rooms have wet bars, bay views, and sofa sleepers—great for families. There's plenty to keep groups occupied: two pools, water-sports rentals, Ping-Pong, and a restaurant with beer tastings. SeaWorld and the beach are within walking distance; shuttles serve SeaWorld, cruise terminals, and the airport. The Marina Village Conference
Center across the street offers meeting and banquet rooms with bay views.
