I stayed at this Marriott for about a 2 month period for a work assignment and was happy with my stay. Overall the staff was friendly and responsive whenever I had an issue which was not often it was addressed. The hotel was clean and recently renovated in the lobby. The rooms were fairly up to date as well. Below are some thoughts:
The Courtyard is located at a pretty busy intersection. There is construction on Westshore and so there are a few detours to the on ramp for the highway. If you have to be somewhere at a certain time then you should build in some lead time for the highway detours. The detours weren’t that bad but if you are not prepared for it then it could be annoying. The location was pretty quiet and I didn’t have complaints about much noise.
The Yankees spring training stadium is also not too far away. It’s about a 5-10 minute drive.
The courtyard has a bistro but the food is not that great. It’s a courtyard and so I don’t expect the food to be amazing. However, there is a Brickhouse restaurant right next door to the hotel. There is actually a gate that provides a shortcut. The food is pretty good and they have a pretty decently priced happy hour- half off appetizers and inexpensive drinks. There is an also a mall nearby that has the Cheesecake factory, Capital Grille and the Blue Martini. There is also a Brazilian Steakhouse nearby.
You definitely need a car if you want to get around. The hotel does have a shuttle that can take you to the nearby attractions and restaurants including the mall but you will have to wait to be picked up depending on how busy it is. The shuttle also takes you the airport.
The Courtyard has an outdoor seating area, pool and exercise room. The exercise room is fairly small with only about 4 machines. There is also a game room that has tennis tables. I honestly didn’t use the amenities that much and so I can really speak to how great they are.
The rooms do have free internet which was a standard connection. I have a hotspot and so I typically prefer to use it instead.
The staff was pretty friendly. I had an issue during one stay about the cleanliness of my room upon arrival and it was addressed in a professional manner. I’m not one to form an opinion about an establishment due to one mishap but I will form an opinion based upon the response to the mishap.
If you are looking for an affordable, clean and fairly new location to stay in Tampa then this courtyard is a great location.
