I stayed at the Courtyard Marriot Downtown on June 6th and 7th, a Friday and Saturday. I was in town for a basketball tournament at nearby University of Tampa with my 7th grade daughter and her AAU basketball team. Let me preface by saying I am a worrier who plans every detail of a stay. With this in mind I would have to say I have never been more comfortable at hotel since by daughter started traveling three years ago for these events. I'm not a fan of valet parking, but the hotel is in the city and parking is at a premium. So they have valet parking in lieu of the traditional parking lot. When we pulled up there is no rush to remember to get everything out of your car because you don't want to have to have the valet bring the car back up. You can park there for at least fifteen minutes while the attendants bring you a cart for your luggage. The valet staff were great. Very polite and attentive. After checking in with Charles at the front desk who is a consummate professional, I discovered the hotel would provide me with a free shuttle to a nearby restaurant in Ybor City and pick me up. This was getting better and better. The pool and outdoor area is very nice and relaxing, complete with a bbq and basketball court in excellent condition. They supply the basketball!. I requested a refrigerator and not to be near an elevator. Both request were granted. I was on the fifth floor with a view of the city. Was pretty quiet, did hear the occassional motorcyle. Air conditioning was quiet and efficient. A huge plus in my book. Beds good, bathroom adequate. Bathroom door lock was broken and corner beading was falling off a wall which I reported to the desk. It was not a big deal. For us the location was just perfect. There is a First Watch for a big breakfast in walking distance and a NY style pizza place open untill 11pm. Plenty of other restaurants as well. For me the location, layout of the hotel and the staff made it a great stay. I would love to stay here again, unfortunately was probably a one time stay. The hotel is expensive and the bistro and bar are priced a little steep. But I will always have the pleasant memory.
