We did arrive before check in time, they were great getting our room early knowing we were tired. I did mention I was a marriott member-they usually try to upgrade if they can. I got a balcony at the front of the building overlooking the parking lot. Would of liked something better if their was but I didnt ask as we were tired. The room was clean, they had free continental breakfast which was nice and the room was reasonably priced. The pool was great and the kids enjoyed it alot. They must share amenties with their other marriott hotel beside them because when we mentioned if the hot tub was broken they said yes but we could use next doors which was nice. The staff seemed very nice and attentive some of the best I have seen. We would come back if next in Tampa.
