I booked a room at the Marriott Tampa Airport hotel because I had a very early morning flight and liked the convenience of the hotel being right in the airport, but I did not have high expectations for the hotel (never really had a good experience with airport hotels and this one is very dated looking for the outside). I am very happy to report that this was a very nice, well maintained hotel -- very much up to Marriott's standards! The room was very clean and updated. The hotel staff was courteous and very helpful. I do not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. I would gladly stay here again on my next trip to the Tampa/St. Pete area.
