“Unexpected pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We were scheduled to fly from Columbus Ohio to Ft Myers Florida the day after Christmas, but a major winter storm cancelled our flight. We got placed on another flight to Tampa via Nashville. The flight to Tampa arrived late and we decided at the last minute to stay at the Tampa airport Marriott overnight. With it being an airport hotel, our expectations were not very high however the experience there was top notch. Our room was spacious and clean and well decorated. The staff was friendly and helpful. And with the hotel being right in the airport we didn't need to bother with shuttles and transportation. We also enjoyed a great late-night drink and dinner at the hotel's restaurant. All-in-all, it was a great experience and made a difficult trip a bit of a pleasure.

Just a quick review as the room was super clean and quiet. The bed and bedding were lovely. Truth be told, I wanted to take some pillows home. The bathroom was a bit small but very clean with nice products and towels. We went to the hotel bar, and the bartenders made some tasty mojitos. We did not eat at the bar or restaurant, but maybe it was as good as the cocktails. This is a great hotel if you are in Tampa, but particularly if you have an early flight to catch. We had a 6am flight, so check out was super easy and we just walked right to the terminal. It could not have been easier. I would definitely stay here again if I have an early flight out of Tampa.

After missing a flight due to a delayed Carnival cruise my husband and I stayed at the Marriott. The front desk lady was amazing and gave us a discounted rate on the room- however it was a handicap accessible room- no big deal! We had an early flight the next morning so it was great to be IN the airport already.
We got settled in the room and headed to the TGIFridays in the airport for some dinner. When we returned from dinner we noticed that the toilet was not cleaned. I also looked at the shower and noticed that there was a used catheter tube in the shower hanging right next to the clean towels. A manager came to the room immediately and removed the catheter tube and apologized for the room. We were comped for the night- which was wonderful of Marriott to do. I am going to assume that this was an isolated incident- however housekeeping should have been more dilgent when cleaning the room!

The Marriott Tampa Airport is literally AT the airport. We stayed the night before a very early morning flight and were very pleased. The staff was friendly and helpful at check in and with suggestions for timing and wake up call. The room was modern and large with a comfortable king size bed. While you know you are at the airport, you have to listen carefully to hear the planes. We slept comfortably and were ready to face our early morning flight!

The hotel was beautifully decorated. The rooms were large and very luxurious. It is very convenient if you are taking an early flight out of Tampa or landing here late at night. The lobby leads out into the airport where all the shops, food and gate entrances are. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Self Parking is only $10 a day if you are staying there and $25 for valet, but the lot was covered and just goes around the entrance so the self park was just as easy and cheaper. Sadly the revolving restaurant was closed the 2 night we were there. The bar in the lobby was very relaxing and quiet for New Years Eve. I like the fact you need a room key in the elevator to access the rooms. The pool area and outside sitting areas are nicely landscaped. The pool itself is small and not heated. It looks like the used to have a hot tub but filled it in and made a sitting area there. There are even a couple outside smoking areas with comfortable seating if you are a smoker.
The only negative things I can comment on are if you want to access the internet in your room it is $14.95 a day yet you can go to the lobby and it is free. The prices at the marketplace and the restaurants are very high but I did expect that being in the airport. The toilet sounds like a small explosion when you flush it, you can hear it in the room above you as well :/ The planes were not as loud or bothersome as the noise from flushing.
Overall I would stay here anytime I am traveling out of Tampa and may try to take more flight from here instead of Orlando just so I can spend the night! I really loved the accommodations and the convenience of this hotel. A+

This is an average airport hotel, not bad but not excellent ....well, just good for a one-night-stay. If you are tired, as we were, after a long, long flight, then the Marriott Airport Hotel is certainly convenient, as it happens to be right in the airport, a few steps away from your arrival location.
The staff is trying to be helpful, nothing bad to tell. The room is average, and as usual with Marriott hotels, very comfortable beds, very soft ....not everybody's like, but we appreciated it, as it helped us to get a good sleep. Breakfast average ..... all in all, it's ok, but again: one night is sufficient to spend. But then: who wants to be longer at any airport hotel?

Could not be more convenient if you want a place to stay between or before early flights. Great Marriott staff, clean rooms. No airplane noise in our 5th floor room overlooking AirTrans gates. Due to Holiday's the usual conceige breakfast was not available, so they gave us chit's for use for the Breakfast Buffett at the downstairs restaurant. Do not hesitate to stay at this Airport Hotel if your plans require an overnite in Tampa.

Room Tip: If staying for more than a nite and have a car to park, consider the airport's long term parking...
