4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

Good place to lay your head. Very comfortable. The bar closes early though.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

The staff are very helpful. The shuttle is convenient and easily accessible. The facilities are clean. The breakfast was good. Though there is no night time restaurant in the hotel, good snacks are available from the bar or lobby area. Great restuarants close by. No need for a car. The location for business downtown is perfect.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011 via mobile

The hotel is fine. Lobby bar, restaurant that is open for breakfast and nice staff. I am just so bored by Marriott's Courtyards that I am almost thinking of moving to a different loyalty program. The beds are hard, the walls are the depressing yellowish color and the rooms are basic. You won't find fluffy pillows or comfy comforters.

There is valet parking, by the way. Also, they offer a free shuttle that runs everywhere downtown.

Overall, fine hotel. Just bored with Courtyards.

Due to a consulting assignment I have been in Tampa since late June. I arrive late on Sunday night and leave each week to return home on Friday. The location is perfect for business and within walking distance to great restaurants.If you care to venture to restaurants beyond the neighborhood the shuttle is always waiting.
The hotel is always clean and the staff is extremely kind and courteous. Always willing to assist and give you that smile that makes it feel like home. And unlike most Courtyards, there is a full lobby bar which is a welcome sight after a long day at the office....and always nice to sit by the large pool in the evening especially after the hot Tampa sun sets!
Any business traveler should check out this jewel in the heart of the city!

I am a female who travels alone a lot for work and safety is a big concern for me. I researched the parking situation before I arrived and was glad to see they had valet parking. When I arrived at the hotel I had to go into the hotel (which the doors were locked and I had to get buzzed in) to ask about the valet parking. There was a large group of males outside the hotel and I almost didnt want to get out of my car. The lady at the front desk was very welcoming and helped me with my car but I will be checking out in the morning. I simply do not feel safe in this hotel. I am a loyal marriott customer so I will be switching to another Marriott. I hope its in a better location than this one.

Thank you for taking the to let us know about your experience. We pride ourselves on our customer service and the security of our guest. I can understand your concerns arriving in an unfamiliar Downtown location in the early morning hours. While our location is near the heart of Downtown and it is common for people to be on the streets in our city. Additionally, we do take all necessary precautions that an urban hotel location would for security. As mentioned in your review, our entrances are only accesible by guest room key cards from 11:00 pm until 6:00 am. Our hotel valet service is available 24 hours a day and staff is on hand to assit you during those overnight hours. Thanks to your review it does give us a chance to improve our staff and perceptions that our guest have regarding our hotel. We appreciate your choice in hotels and hope that you will stay with us again on your next visit to our city. Thank you!

This Courtyard had a very warm atmostphere. The staff was attentive and aimed to please. The lobby has a nice bar. They have free shuttle service. We were there for just one night and our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. We didn't have the time to check out the pool or amenities. The room rates are very affordable. We drove over from the East Coast of Florida. They do have a daily parking charge.
