“Incredible service with decent rooms”
Reviewed August 21, 2006

My business partner and I stayed at this hotel recently for a conference, and we had a great time because the hotel was very nice and incredibly friendly.

The conference areas are fantastic...very clean and styled nicely. Their conference rooms were far better than any rooms where I had attended conferences before.

The hotel rooms are small, but nice, with great views of the airport. The first room of ours was an "airport view" which viewed the very end of both runways. The second room was a "pool view" which overlooked the pool and one of the runways. I liked the second one better because you could see half of the airport and an entire runway to watch planes take off and land.

The bed is fantastic, and thankfully they have updated their bed since their hotel website photos. The beds have white down duvets and down pillows...and it's very comfortable.

The bathroom is small, but I thought functional. My business partner, a female, thought it was too small. The showerhead is a rainshower type, which is just a matter of preference. I prefer a shower head with better pressure, but it was still fine.

The windows are double paned and block most of the noise. It blocked all noise in the airport view, and blocked almost all of it in the pool view room (except when a large plane was taking off).

The service is incredible. Everyone is incredibly nice and bends over backwards to make sure you are comfortable. The person at the hotel check-in pulled out a map of the hotel rooms to make sure we got the best room selection. The waitress at the lounge pulled up a chair and talked with us some. The chef at the restaurant came out to our table and joked around with us. It's the most friendly hotel I've ever visited.

The food quality is also fantastic. All of the three hotel restaurants were reasonably priced and had very good food.

I would definitely recommend this hotel, and if I need to stay overnight in Tampa again, I would likely check into this hotel even if I wasn't using the airport.

There was a charge to internet and cable channels were limited.

Very quiet, clean and luxurious hotel rooms on concierge floor.

Tampa Marriott airport was a very nice airport hotel. There was no noise from the airport. Location by airport was ~15 mins from Tampa attractions.
Very quiet, clean and luxurious (plush comforters and pillows, nice robes, good furniture,...) hotel rooms on concierge floor. Staff worked with us on special requests.

Got this hotel for $80 on Priceline (retails for $200)

After being mishandled by an airline because of a flight delay, and then sent to a flea bag, the Best Western Westshore, which I left after about 5 minutes, I was thrilled to sink into the comfy, cloud-like beds at the Marriott. The staff was efficient, and just friendly enough. The air was clean and lacked the standard, sticky, humidity of Tampa. Rooms were spotless with nice bathroom amenities, attractive furnishings, and plenty of room. After the bunglings of the airline, the efficiency of the check-in was a huge relief. Loved every minute of my 7 hour stay.

The Marriott at Tampa airport has well appointed furnishings and atmosphere. The linens were luxurious and elegant. Other than the fabulous atmosphere, furnishings, linens and staff, this Marriott is extremely practical. If you want to avoid the hassle of driving to the airport for an early morning flight, this is the place to stay. I was concerned at first that it would be noisy due to the take-offs and landings of the jets, however due to the triple paned windows you could not hear any of the jet noise unless you went outside to the pool or hot tub. There are several restaurants and shops right out the front door of the lobby and an ATM and bank as well. This makes it convenient for meals if you don't want to drive through Tampa to find someplace to eat. One piece of advice however...don't put your room key card next to your cell phone. The phone will demagnetize the card and you will have to go to the front desk to get a new one. This could be a real problem if you left your identification in the room!

We stayed here 5 nights after getting a super deal at Priceline.

The room was somewhat small but that would be the only downside. The accomodations were so comfortable and the location so convenient, even for those who didn't fly in. With easy access to the airport restaurants (BK, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut) it was great for our kids (2 1/2 and 9). Close to International Plaza Mall and the dining there also.

We did not eat at any of the hotel restaurants.

The pool was lovely, though there was noise from the airport construction.

The hotel is amazingly quiet...you could barely hear the planes, construction, or your "neighbors" while in your room.

My favorite part was the fitness room with top of the line equipment. Excellent!

So even if your NOT flying in...try the Tampa Airport Marriott!

We were on our way to a Disney Cruise and flew into Tampa, FL to visit friends on the way. The Marriott Hotel in Tampa Airport is so convenient, they even e-mailed us to tell us how to contact the bellhop and have him meet us at the luggage pick-up! He was very helpful and gave us great service. Putting up with a 4.5 yr old and an older child, plus four tired adults! He gave us wonderful information on the area and hotel. The rooms were great, wonderful beds and a good nights sleep. Would stay there anytime!
The young lady in the VIP lounge on the Conceige floor was so helpful and went out of her way to accomodate us.

I recently stayed at the Marriott Tampa Airport on a quick trip to the Tampa area. My return flight was rather early in the morning, so I searched for a hotel near the airport. If you can get a discounted rate, this hotel is great (I believe the rack rates to be a bit high). The hotel is not new, but most areas appear to have been recently remodeled. We were able to check in over two hours early (even though the hotel had been full the previous night), and parking is free while you are a hotel guest. The staff was helpful and friendly, and our room was very clean and comfortable, if a bit small. I was surprised at how little we noticed the noise from the airplanes. The hotel opens up into the airport, so several fast food restaurants, a couple of full-service restaurants, and a Starbucks are all a short walk away. The ticketing area of the airport is very close, too; we were through security less than 15 minutes after checking out of our room. For an early flight out, this hotel is a great choice.
