We really enjoyed our stay! Everyone was exceptionally friendly and helpful including the reservations operator, front desk, restaurant staff, and housekeeping. We arrived at the hotel at 7am after an all night flight. To our delight our room was ready for us! During our stay, our room had a plumbing problem. Rather than making us deal with the problem, the front desk immediately upgraded us to a better room, without argument or hesitation.
Our room was clean and had the standard Marriott décor, including a comfy bed. There’s a nice pool, spa and decent exercise area. There’s a large outside seating area which is set up with two large flat screen TVs and is serviced by the lobby bar. The indoor sports bar has several large screen TVs, serves pub food and can be lively. There’s also a grill with outdoor seating and formal dining in the hotel.
The hotel is 20 minutes from the airport and is conveniently located to just about everything in central Tampa. Jackson’s and Hattrick’s are close by. The convention center and hockey sports arena are across the street. The hotel is within walking distance to the cruise ships, aquarium and the Channelside entertainment area. There’s a trolley stop across the street which takes you to these locations and Ybor city.
I highly recommend this hotel and will stay again on our next visit to Tampa.
