Our travels took us to Tampa for a cruise and we wanted a hotel close to the airport for the night before and after the cruise. You can't get much more convenient than having the hotel connected to the airport terminal.
For the first night I checked in with the Marriott iPhone app and, as advertised, the keys were waiting for us when we got to the desk. They handed us the keys and we went directly to the elevator. The room was clean, comfortable, and amazingly quiet for a place spitting distance from the runways. We had dinner at TGI Friday's in the airport (and they don't charge crazy airport prices) and breakfast at the hotel restaurant. The waitress, Reiko, was very friendly and also does double duty at the Starbucks in the hotel.
After the cruise we arrived at the Marriott at 8:30 am. While checkin is usually at 3:00 and Tereza was able to put us in a room. This room was larger than the first one and had a little more of a view of the airfield. Again, the room was quiet and comfortable.
Plusses: The staff, the shower head, and the comfy bed. Thanks to a holiday promotion, Internet access was free, albeit slow. There are several restaurants and shops in the airport. And you can literally roll out of bed, change your clothes, and be at TSA security in 10 minutes.
Minuses: If you plan on doing anything outside the airport during your stay (we didn't) you need to take a taxi or bus.
Should we find ourselves in Tampa again we'll definitely consider staying here.
