“Convenient and courteous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Full service Marriott five stars. No, not a Four Seasons type of five stars but a great Marriott.

The location is the best. Walk to the terminal from the lobby. We had a ton of baggage on this trip and the bellman took us all the way to ticketing. If you aren't up for Marriott food you can go to the terminal for something else. Really a smooth and painless visit on a very busy holiday weekend.

Early morning flights are never fun for families with young children, but if you are flying out of Tampa, this hotel will make it much easier on you.

We checked in last Friday for our 6am flight out the next morning. I found the signage around the airport parkway straightforward and getting there was a breeze. Post check in, the car rental return is just a short jump away with no shuttle necessary to get back to the hotel. Just a 5 minute walk back through the terminal back to the hotel lobby.


We didn't eat at the hotel, instead we went to Carabba's in the terminal - but there are tons of other options ranging from fast food to TGIF and the like.

In the morning, it was up at 4:45am, express checkout from the room - and at the Delta check in counter by 5:10. Sleepy kids in tow.

Beds and comfy, room is clean and washrooms are new/modern.

Makes for a great start to the day! Very convenient and well worth the small premium over the other offsite choices.

Conveniently located, easy access and exceptional staff. Unfortunately, things were very confusing (by us) when we arrived to check-in, the associate (didn't get her name) was exceptional in calming us and getting us to our rooms extremely quickly. Saida, checked us out and was wonderful. Extremely helpful.

We stayed here for one night after a late arriving flight and we were so glad we did. The hotel is conveniently located in the terminal. Although the airport kiosks were all closed, the hotel bar was open. Checkin was quick. Our room was very spacious, clean, and quiet. Highly recommend for early morning/late arrival flights.

Room Tip: Ask for extra shampoo, conditioner and towels at check in. You'll only find one of each in your...

The location of the hotel- inside the Tampa Airport main terminal, is superior. It is immediately adjacent to all the primary concourses, outside security, so you can drop off your rental car and walk a few hundred yards. Presuming you stay overnight for a flight, you couldn't be in a better spot for minimizing the stress associated with getting to the airport. The bell staff was excellent in helping us secure a wheelchair as well as our luggage upon departure. In fact, every staff person encountered was extremely kind and helpful. The only drawback was the fact that several aspects advertised on the hotel website were not open or available, including one of the restaurants and the coffee bar. Neither of these resources were critical- there are other options available in the airport- but should have been accurately reflected on the website. Breakfast at the one restaurant available was a buffet and food as well as the service were great. I will say that the service throughout was far and above what you typically encounter in an airport. The room itself was fine- clean, average appointments, and quiet (which is saying alot, considering it is in an airport). I would certainly travel through Tampa again this way if scheduling permits, because being at the airport in a comfortable environment beats fighting traffic and stress anytime.

The hotel is conveniently located at the airport. The beds are very comfortable and clean. Shelly at the bar was extremely pleasant and fun. She is a great bartender and an asset to the Marriott. Now for the best kept secret which is located at the office level, next to the fitness center...Ricks Touch Massage. If I hadn't gone to workout at the fitness center, I would never had known there was a massage therapist at the hotel. It was an awesome discovery, that I will never forget. The massage was amazing. Rick was very professional and knowledgeable. I have had an issue with my neck, and he worked it out on the first session. I have had many massages, and he is by far the best I've had. I will always stay at this hotel just to get an awesome massage by Rick. It's unfortunate that most guests don't even know he is there. Ricks Touch Massage is an asset to your establishment.

Room Tip: If you want an incredible massage experience, ask for Rick.

We needed to be close to the airport and close to the football stadium. This fit the bill. Our room was very nice, the bar was awesome with the best holiday drinks, and the staff was friendly. I didn't like the internet setup - first you pay, then they cover the charge. Who has to pay for internet at an upscale hotel these days? And it was on my bill when I checked out, so I had to remind them to remove it. Otherwise, a perfect stay.
