Located conveniently in the Tampa Airport. Typical clean modern comfortable Marriott room. Staff well-trained, polite and eager to please - as expected. Good place for a tired long-haul traveler after a trip or to spend the evening before an early morning flight.
Had some trouble finding the Marriott. Entered from the car rentals and no sign for hotel. Went upstairs on a hunch and again, no sign. Walked around a bit and found a sign, but only the one. Still lost. Then saw the Marriott at the end of a long wide hallway. Smooth check-in and given a room that met room requests. Very nice people at reception.
Sadly, there isn’t much choice for food in this airport. A TGIF and some Italian place. Then the usual junk food burger places. That’s it. So I thought the Marriott would save me. Only bar-food in the bar and a limited “Cuban bistro“. No restaurant. They used to have one on the roof, but not anymore. It was still marked in the elevator and one of the service workers gave me the sad news. Considering the few food options in the airport and the fact that this is a Marriott, thought the food possibilities at the hotel were very disappointing. Hyatt has a similar hotel at the Orlando airport that upstages this Marriott in almost every area. Marriott should stay a few nights there to see how they handle it.
Wi-fi available, but as usual, not free. I don’t see how budget hotels can provide wi-fi free with a much lower room rate, and Marriott has to charge for it. Also, there were two small bottles of water on the room table. Thought it was a “welcome to Marriott” free drink, but when reading he label, they wanted $5 a bottle. Wonder how many people thought they were free, drank them and then had to pay. Would have been a nice touch for the host to offer a drink of water.
No room safe or fridge. Nicely presented coffee/tea station. Adequate size TV.
Would I stay here again? Definitely - but I wouldn‘t look forward to it like I do for the Orlando Airport Hyatt. But, still a good choice to land after a long trip. Nice large room and very comfortable. Food options at both the hotel and airport leave much to be desired, but if Marriott reads this, maybe it will improve.
