Making many trips to this coast lately, i finally decided to review this property as i would need to rest and relax before headed down to Sarasota. I flew into MCO and drove the 1.5 hours to TPA, not arriving until 1030pm. I was extremely tired but couldnt have been more pleased to find a renovated, and very comfortable Marriott awaited me.
HOTEL: Its a large facility with 6 floors and a now closed restaurant atop. It is directly connected to the airport terminal and the only on airport hotel. This property is escpecially perfect if your stranded at TPA, have an early flight or like me, arriving very late. There is a very nice Club lounge serving Breakfast and Dinner. Many rooms as well as the lounge overlook atleast part of the activity on the ramp. The best part for me was the little Oasis (pool/palm trees) on the deck. People complain its small, and it isnt the biggest pool but it is a nice little retreat amidst all the activity around it. Valet parking available ($25) Room Service was delicous (closes at 11pm but they will work with you)
THE LOCATION: Attached to the TPA terminal and close to the Southwest Airlines gates. Also very accessible if your returning a rental. Just up an escalator and a short walk.
THE ROOM(S): For this stay i had a double located on the 6th (top floor) and per specific request overlooked the airport activities. They are not large rooms and i dont believe suites are available here but it was upgraded and very comfortable.
THE STAFF: Upon arrival (evening) staff was phenominal, from the check in staff to the club lounge rep to the room service, all very friendly and above and beyond. The following morning was a different story. They werent bad just very pre-ocuppied it seemed to me and could care less was the opinion i got.
Was my Elite recognized? Yes, i was thanked for my loyalty and the room preference was secured. Beyond that nothing
I would recommend this property, especially if as stated above, your stranded overnight at TPA, have an early flight or are dropping off a rental. There are however many hotels nearby with much larger rooms. The rate was very nice and would compel me back im sure in the future.
