“Great for a quick stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

We checked in on a Friday night for a short weekend getaway to Tampa. The front desk receptionist was friendly and offered up suggestions on what to do and where to eat. We took a quick elevator ride up to our room and got to our room.

We were pleasantly surprised at how much they were able to fit into the room - a sink, stovetop, dishwasher, microwave, upper cabinets, and a 5 foot tall fridge. There was a moderate sized closet for your luggage, coats, etc with some shelving and the iron and ironing board. Then there's a desk area with more shelving space and a moveable desk, a desk chair, arm chair with a foot rest, queen-sized bed with a full bathroom and another closet. The space doesn't feel cramped at all. It is very well laid out.

The towels leave something to be desired. They're hard and have seen better days. The room was pretty clean. There was some hair on the ceiling, which was really odd.

The walls are very thin. You can hear everything and you can certainly hear everything from the hallways.

The breakfast is adequate. They offer some fruits, yogurts, cereals and orange juice.

The hotel is literally across the street from the airport, but you can't hear planes taking off or road noise. A hotel shuttle is available to the Port and to the airport. They even offer park and fly packages to leave your car here.

The parking was fine for us. This doesn't seem to be a particularly busy time of year, though. I can see where the parking might get dicey.

The pool is so long! You could do laps in it and get in a lot of distance. It was too cold to use, but definitely worth checking out when it's warmer. They also have a bbq out back to use.

Oh, and most importantly, they're pet-friendly for a small fee!

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite. It was quiet and the staff were great. We were able to check in early around noon with no issues. Rooms were very clean, small, but comfortable. Breakfest was just okay, but the price we paid was very good so we were not too concerned about the breakfest. Close to shopping as there is a large mall less than a mile away. Great place to eat at the mall as well.

Nice, clean hotel with a great staff. Location makes it ideal for business travel but not so much for vacation travel. Rooms had a full complement of kitchenware which was clean and useful. Room service didn’t skimp on replacing the coffee either (I am a coffee drinker), another nice bonus. Furniture showed a bit wear and tear but nothing to make you adverse to sit on. The little shop in the lobby has a decent selection of name brand “emergency snacks” at convenience store prices. Both WiFi and plug-in Internet worked like a champ from my room. Check-out was a breeze. All in all I would stay there again with no problems.

Room Tip: Recommend not getting one near the elevator or lobby. The 8pm activities scheduled tehre can get a b...

I had a manager once that refused to stay anywhere except Marriott properties. Now that I'm self-employed and always looking for a great deal, I'm thinking exactly like he did - but for different reasons.

I've found every Marriott property (mostly the lower-end hotels) consistently exceed my expectations.

This one was no different.

We checked in at 10am in the morning - really early, but they found us a just-cleaned room.
I was hungry, and their breakfast had finished a couple of hours earlier. I went to the front desk to ask where I could buy some fruit, and he said "wait a minute" ... went into the back and brought me a couple of apples and a banana. For free.

The front desk help pointed us toward a couple of good, local restaurants that proved very good as well.

Overall - I'm a Marriott convert.

Superb location to TPA with shuttle service. Front desk staff (Nancy) is positively a joy. The rooms at this Marriott brand are well designed and efficient. If you're considering a long-term stay and are working in the West Shore area you should consider this brand.

This is a quick stop property.Or for a single person who needs long-term stay.Close to the airport. We checked in at 1am, after a drive from Orlando since our return flight was early morning from Tampa.The checkin was smooth and efficient, the front desk staff pleasant.The room was small with a kitchenette equipped with pots and pans,4-burner stove, microwave, regular sized fridge, a good sized closet in the room, and another one in the bathroom. But I was not too impressed with the pull-out sofa bed- which was lumpy and obviously over-used. But most importantly, the bed sheets for the sofabed which were in a bag in the cabinet did not seem washed. It seemed the housekeeper had simply pulled them off the sofabed, folded haphazardly and put them in the bag.
Breakfast in the lobby was muffins, cereals, OJ in individual bottles,yogurt,bananas and apples, tea/coffee.
Cons: When we made reservations on the hotel website, we had requested 2 queen beds, but upon checkin we were advised that the entire property has only king beds (with pull out sofas). Btw, their king bed was actually the size of a queen.Very few parking spaces.
All in all not a bad choice.

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to share your experience with us. I’m glad to hear that the front desk agent was pleasant and that you were impressed with the kitchenette & amenities. On the other hand I’m sorry to hear about the sofa bed and the linens. This information will be shared with our staff and addressed immediately. I also wanted to apologize for the confusion on the size of our beds. Our entire property consists of only queen beds. We certainly appreciate your feedback and hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you back to our TownePlace Suites.
