“Surprise for an airport hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Location, quality of room, and amenities for the business traveler are excellent. I wouldn't stay here if you're taking a vacation to Tampa, but as a traveler who will be coming in and out with a car, if you need a place to "get business done" with a lot of restaurant choices nearby, I highly recommend this Marriott. One of the best things about this location is you can walk from the lobby of the hotel (complete with large sitting area in front of a Starbucks) directly into the airport terminal. The stores along the hallway to the terminal are a little iffy but good places if you need a last minute purchase (the shops inside the actual airport terminal are terrific). The staff at this Marriott "get it" and are efficient, friendly and attentive.

This was my 3rd stay at this hotel. The porters bring your luggage from your room right to the airline check in desk or straight to the car rental desk - it simply could not be more convenient. It is literally inside the airport, but you don't feel like your stuck in a dreadful airport motel yucky place.
The rooms are terrific, but tiny.
It is not a cheap; you pay for the ultra convenience and comfort.
Breakfast was ordered for 06:15am delivery and arrived at 06:14. Couldn't ask for more.
Ms. Saida at the front desk was exceptional and very efficient, we loved her!

I chose to stay at the Marriott Tampa Airport based on one thing, location. And yes, just five minutes elapsed between walking off the plane and entering my room. Fantastic. My room was immaculate, too. That's about all I can say on the positive side.

After my excitement about the location wore off, I began to notice just how ugly this Marriott is. It looked so much like an old Reno hotel that I expected to find slot machines by the elevator. The rooms are well shielded from outside noise but I still heard the staff yelling down the hall every morning. My windows were locked shut, too -- no fresh air to cut the smell of cleaning products.

Worse yet are the airport prices that seep in to your stay. Considering the lack of amenities, thin towels and cheap fixtures, my booking was expensive. Room service was not only costly but about the worst I can remember. Parking was $10 a day, and Internet access cost $15 a day! Even the phone had a price tag attached.

If you're renting a car anyway, it's worth driving off the airport grounds to find a better hotel. And if you aren't, I bet you'd do better staying at a hotel with an airport shuttle. Prime location can make businesses lazy, and from this looks of it this Marriott hasn't woken up since the 80's.

The staff was friendly and even brought extra items on request. I felt like I was staying in a luxury hotel. We even had dinner brought up and it was good and resonably priced! The beds were oh so comfortable and the room was spotless. The only downside to the rooms were the loud "power flush" on the toilets and yes you could hear other rooms flush. It was wonderful just being able to roll out of bed and catch that early morning flight.

The hotel is literally part of the airport. You walk directly from the lobby to the gates. Beyond that advantage, you can return your rental car the previous night and just walk up to the hotel.
The rooms are small but for one night, this is not an issue. My only problem with the rooms is that bathrooms do not have active exhaust fans, and windows do not open... Other than that, room decor is very nice.

Room Tip: Unless you have an early flight, ask for a room away from elevators. It is quite busy early in the...

This is a great Airport hotel. It's clean, nicely decorated, very quiet and conveneinetly located right at the Tampa Airport...one can easily walk from the airline gates directly to the hotel. Food was good and service excellent.

Check in was probably the fastest I have ever experienced - maybe a little chit chat might have been nice but in all honesty having travelled for 22 hours, probably on this occasion, best.
Room was of the normal very high standard and bathroom, great.

Exceptionally clean- it was brilliant to see housekeeping staff fully in evidence very last thing at night and very first (very early) thing in the morning.

Only staff I reall encountered were those in the bar and they could not be faulted.

As an airport stop over this has to be one of the best and would most definitely stay here again.
Only four stars as I do not feel I experienced everything.
