“Tampa Airport Marriott works well with early flights & great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We had a 0745 flight home to Vancouver (via DFW) from the Tampa Airport at the end of our spring break, so we decided to bite the bullet and stay at an airport hotel. As we are are Marriott Rewards and AAA members this property right in the Tampa airport was the obvious choice. Altho a bit pricey at $197 per night, when you factor in it could save you a day on car rental fees, and for sure the stress and hassle of an early am drive & car return at the airport, it was money well spent.

The location is perfect as an easy walk to the airline departure counters, but the biggest plus to me of this location was the staff. The lady in their 6th floor lounge, Margit, was one of the nicest & most professional people I have ever met. When she heard we were leaving so early the next morning she wrapped up a bunch of tasty cookies for my son, and also offered up a few boxes of cereal & drinks so he could have something in the morning in case we were too rushed before our 1st flight of the day. It was clear Margit was very passionate about her job (16 yrs with Marriott she said), and it is because of people like her that we will pay more to continue staying at Marriotts.

Room was fiine with a flat screen & 2 comfy queen beds & it is nice to look out & see the runway with planes taking off & landing. It didn't seem like plane noise was an issue & the only noise issue was the loudness of the room phones as at 0500 I heard the phone go off in a nearby room which made for a slightly earlier wake up than I would have wanted.

The hotel lobby has wi-fi, and the 6th floor lounge also has one work-station with a printer, but if you want wi-fi or wired in internet access in your room it is a $14.95 charge. To me that is a bit cheeky for a room that is almost $200/night, but for most corporate clients that likely isn't an issue, but I think the hotel should re-think that policy.

Check out was not an issue as we had turned in our Marriott gift cards the night we checked in so that credit was there, and the balance went onto our AMEX cards. Easy walk into the airport & bonus is some nice shops in the general area. Overall we would stay there again for the convenience & staff.

Room Tip: Only 5 floors and all have some view of the runways. If the runway view is key for you (or your kids...

Your loyalty to Marriott and the rewards program is very much appreciated. We were pleased to hear that we were able to accommodate your needs and also make such a lasting impression with our staff. Margit certainly has the passion needed to make a difference and we are lucky to have had her on our team for the last 16 years. We look forward to hosting you again in the near future.

This hotel is well located, even for an airport hotel it is close to the terminals and simple to get to. Typical higher quality Marriott property, friendly helpful staff. I always enjoy seeing the airplanes out my window, but the rooms are very well insulated against sound.

We spent one night since we were flying out the next morning. This hotel is located inside the airport. It is a short walk to the reception desk and there are shops and restaurants in the same area. The staff is very welcoming and our room was quiet. We thought it would be noisy but we were pleasantly surprised. Our room was comfortable. Bathroom is small but updated. The only thing we missed was a coffee maker, but there is a Starbucks in the lobby area as well as places to have breakfast. It was so easy to check out of the Marriott, check our bags for our flight, and not fight traffic getting to the airport.

We unquestionably agree with your assessment that our hotel has a perfect location for an easy transition in and out of the airport terminals. The Front Desk staff appreciated the kind words and makes every effort to make all guests feel welcomed. I did want to inform you that all the rooms do have coffee makers in the cabinet and we are working on adding signage to better communicate the location. We hope to have you return to stay with us in the near future.

This hotel is very conveniently attached to the Tampa airport - you can walk to/from your flight. Nice pool area, classy rooftop restaurant, extremely attentive staff at breakfast buffet. Comfortable beds. Bathroom very tiny though and they were reluctant to offer any additional amenity to me as a Gold member although their concierge room was closed. Typically breakfast in their restaurant is offered - guess I need to get to Platinum.

Had a great stay at Marriott Tampa Airport. All the staff was courteous and professional. Two stood out to my wife and I. Edith was a wonderful person who made us feel welcome and at home. Also, Margit was a great host who answered questions and was very helpful. We recommend this hotel and hope more people meet up with these two wonderful employees. We will stay here again!!

Spent one night enroute to a cruise ship sailing and the airport hotel was a convenient place to stay for a flight that arrived after midnight. Prudently I called earlier in the day to tell them to hold my room; the hotel was oversold. Our room was ready, it was comfortable and quiet and everything we needed and expected. Breakfast next morning in the hotel café was good and the staff very friendly but I found the buffet price to be expensive. The hotel fitted my needs and I would stay there again.

Room Tip: If you are arriving late, call in advance to assure they hold your room.

My husband and I stayed overnight after a flight from London UK. It was only a short walk through the airport to reception and we were checked in by a very friendly lady on reception. We were in room 330 and it was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was quite small but adequate for an overnight stay. You have to pay for Wifi in the room but down in the lobby it's free. Bring your own water as they charge $5 + tax for a small bottle in the room!! The bed was very comfortable. We had breakfast in the cafe in the hotel and it was very good. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. We will certainly stay again on our way through Tampa airport. Thank you.
