“Great hotel at TIA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This Marriott location is quite nice and VERY convenient for travelers. Great place to stay if you have a very early flight or get bumped / layover, etc. Updated, modern, and amazing views of the runway. Great revolving restaurant on top. Big BUMMER to pay for internet - (come on Marriott - you can do better). I actually got married here back in 2008 and it was fantastic! This is a great place that offers a lot!

Room Tip: get a view of the West side runway!

Thank you for taking a moment to write your recent review regarding your experience at the Tampa Airport Marriott. The convenience of our location is certainly one of our strongest assets and is often highlighted as a reason for choosing our hotel. Congratulations once again on your wedding and we are glad that we were able to be part of that special day in 2008.

Alex the bellman is one of the most friendly, helpful & professional staff members I've ever encountered in the service industry. From the moment I arrived, late at night with 3 tired kids and a lot of luggage, until we left the next afternoon, he was there with a smile to help ensure a comfortable stay. He also was great with any request, whether routine (obtaining a plastic bag for our wet bathing suits) or obscure (deflating a large helium balloon my son had received for his 7th birthday so we can could take it home on the airplane). He was beyond fabulous! The entire Front desk staff was gracious and courteous. Our room on the 2nd floor was quite, extremely comfortable, spacious and nicely appointed. One couldn't ask for a better, more convenient airport hotel! It's a three minute walk from the rental cars and less to get into terminal.They have a lovely pool area conveniently located off the main lobby should your flight get delayed (including a handicap-accessible heated pool, hammock, ping-pong table & bean bag toss). The main dining room had a nice menu, fairly priced and offering many local specialties plus an excellent deal on kid's meal - adult sized burger but at a kid-sized price. If you're flying in or out of TPA, this is THE place to stay! And they offer AAA rates.

Only hotel right in Tampa airport. This makes it extremely convenient if leaving from there. The hotel opens into the airport so you need only take the elevator to check in to your flight. Given the proximity to the airport, the rooms were surprisingly quiet. I wouldn't stay here unless I were leaving from the airport. The hotel is not near much else

I missed my flight due to a storm and heavy traffic and wound up staying here for one night. Great location, front desk staff was courteous and helpful. Rooms were nice but whats up with the Power-flush toilets? I kept hearing little booms from toilet flushes most of the evening. And having to pay for internet is bogus as well since it is free in the lobby and airport. Like other travelers - i boycotted internet and found a good book to read. Overall - a good stay.

Thank you for taking a few moments to share your recent experience at the Tampa Airport Marriott. The front desk certainly appreciates the kind words as they are always anxious to help out our guest. Although all Marriott fullservice hotels do currently charge for internet we are proud to announce we recently changed our offerings to a tiered option. The change is providing our guest with the choice of two price points dependent on their speed needs. We look forward to hosting you once again in the near future.

On two separate stays, our rooms were perfect - attractive decor, everything worked, the beds were amazingly comfortable, we loved the walk-in shower.

But above all of this is the staff. Tereza at the front desk greeted us like we were royalty. Truly above and beyond. And on both stays we were dazzled by Shelley at the Sky Bar. On our July 14 stay, we had just came in from the Ray's baseball game. We originally planned to have a drink then head to Carabbas in the airport for dinner. Well, after our first drink, we knew that we would never be treated as nicely at Carabbas, so we opted to have dinner at the bar. Shelley made terrific recommendations and our dinner was awesome. I had made an off-hand comment that we had bought a chocolate chip cookie at the ball-park and was laughing about how awful it was (pre-packaged, nasty, and overpriced). Shortly after, she emerged with two hot fresh chocolate chip cookies! We were blown away.

We used this hotel for pre- and post- trip stays. We will do this now every time we travel.

My wife and I recently spent some time in Tampa. We resided at the Marriott and found it to be very nice even though they are doing some constructiion work on the elevators. ( This did not disturb our room. The staff was friendly but also efficient. A concern about hot water expressed by us brought immediate attention from the staff.The rooms are quite spacious and well soundproofed as the planes were not a disturbance. The small pool and outside area is very nice . All in all a good find. JImM

We had an early morning flight and couldn't have been happier staying here instead of making that early drive (great location!) also the staff was incredibly friendly from valet/ front door to front desk to bellhop service. We appreciated Edith especially -she was such a blessing to us as she took the time to haul a fridge all the way to our room so that our 3 month old son would have refrigerated breast milk for the following day on our two flights. Her sweet spirit and kindness will be easily remembered! Thank you Tampa based Marriott @airport!!
