I've had the pleasure of staying at the Tampa Airport Marriott fairly frequently over the past five years. I quickly discovered that the responsiveness of their staff combined with world class accomodations makes them the best of the best of Marriott properities. The friendly and competent check-in at the front desk by professionals like Terraza or Saida is just the beginning of a wonderful stay. The recently renovated rooms are well appointed, spacious and despite the close proximity to the airport, are wonderfully quiet. If you are fortunate enough to visit the concierge lounge, you will find Margrit catering to her clients with the same loving care a mother provides to her children. I found the selection of food and beverages provided in the lounge to be outstanding! If you are driving, have no worries for the valet staff at the hotel will baby your vehicle like their own. Add to all this the convenient location to everything of importance in Tampa and you have the perfect place to stay for either business or pleasure, but I guarantee you'll have trouble knowing which of those you are enjoying!
