Returned from business trip and wifi was spotty so doing business from room was tough. Great customer service and many dining options within 10-15 minute drive. Driveway to hotel not well lit at night and probably not so safe for female traveler to walk /run as it is inset major cross streets that drivers seem drive fast around there.

I stayed here overnight while on my way back up North. I was appreciative of the cleanliness of my room and the bed was very comfortable. Staff was also friendly and helpful. The local Hooter's nearby is not very good though - I suggest trying Cherry's Bar and Grill which is actually a little closer to this hotel. Good food there. I'm really impressed with Courtyard - don't believe I've had a bad stay at any Courtyard yet.

Green Features: I'm not a big fan of the "use it again towel thing" which it seems like alot of hotels are doing lately. Not so sure this is directed at being environmentally friendly as it is at saving the hotels $ in the long run.

I have stayed now in all three Marriott properties in the Tampa/Brandon area as well as the Embassy Suites Hotel next door... and this one is so far and above the other two Marriotts (not quite upto the Embassy, mainly due to no hot breakfast included) I would never stay at the others (Spring Hill Suites, see my review and the Fairfield Inn) ... They have recently completed a renovation and the place looks great! Clean and spacious rooms ( I was upgraded to a King suite). The Bistro is there for snacks and meals and the front desk personal were on top of their game. The only negative I have, is it does not seem that they renovated the bathtubs ( could use some TLC)

This Courtyard is exceptional. Close to Tampa, but far enough away to avoid the urban blight. Convenient to shopping and many restaurants. Hotel staff is very gregarious. Enjoyed nightly reception as well as a hot breakfast every morning. This hotel is also very clean.

Nice, clean....a solid Courtyard Marriot. What'd they forget - internet that works consistently, a Bistro that carried food (no fresh fruit at night, no oatmeal the next breakfast......how can you serve breakfast but have no oatmeal? The gym is sort of depressing....but passable. If you just want a room and you're going to find another place to eat, you'll do fine. Bring your hotspot though.

We stayed at the Courtyard Tampa Brandon for our 5-night family vacation (Busch Gardens, Legoland, Clearwater Beach, etc.). The hotel is conveniently located close to both the highway and a huge selection of restaurants and shops. We had the indoor pool to ourselves each time we used it, and my husband enjoyed the fitness center every night. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive to our needs. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again.
