Our plane arrived at 10:55pm. We got our luggage right away and by 11:15 we were in our room at the Marriott. It is so convenient and easy to find unlike the airport hotels in other cities where you have to change terminals to access the hotel. Check in was fast and easy. We booked the breakfast package and inquired about coupons, but were told our name would be on the list. We fell into be exhausted and slept soundly all night. This is the most soundproof airport hotel we have ever stayed in. Our room looked out at the airport tower and runways. In the morning we noticed that the room seemed a bit on the small side, especially the bathroom, but that was of no concern since we would be leaving later in the morning.
We went down to breakfast and told them we had the breakfast package and they directed us to the buffet.There were lots of good choices and an omelet station for cooked to order eggs. The waitress providing the beverages was very efficient. We liked that they left the whole pot of coffee on the table instead of waiting for someone to refill the cups.
When it came time to leave they asked for our name and room number and of course our name was not on the list. The harried waitress said she would check on it, but they couldn't find it. We assured them that we had the package and they said fine, that we could just go. Another couple was having the same difficulty.
On the way to check out my husband stopped by the restaurant and showed them our confirmation which clearly stated breakfast package. We told the lady at the front desk about the problem and she said, " It happens all the time. Don't worry about it." That is not the right answer because they put their guests in an embarrassing position. They need to give out coupons and if the guest loses them then it is their problem.
My husband stayed at this hotel last year and we will definitely stay there again when traveling through Tampa because it is so convenient. We were there on a Friday night and there were lots of cruise passengers at the hotel. It would be a good place to stay for one night before a cruise, especially if you arrive late in the evening.
