If you have to be stuck near the airport for meetings with no car, it might as well be here. Great rooms, service, and pool. Yes, it's in a parking lot but connected to a higher end mall and tons of great places to walk to in minutes. Hotel was a pleasant surprise from the regular Marriott locations. Think glam!

The hotel is attached to the International Mall which offers top of the line shopping, a decent night life and great restaurants. The hotel is welcoming, relaxing and extremely clean. I stay at this hotel several times a year and it is always top notch.

Wouldn't stay anywhere else, made several trips to Tampa and this is the place to stay when you need to be close to it all. Close to airport and a huge mall with a ton of restaurants within walking distance. Highly recommend the hotel and Concierge level Rooms are great.

This hotel just underwent a total makeover. Public spaces and guest rooms were given a clean modern warm touch. Its like Morocco meets Architectural Digest.

I scratched my head at check in when Joy said to enjoy "the renovations". After all, the interior decor matched the Spanish influence of the buildings exterior and the adjoining International Mall. The rooms were updated to a more neutral or even masculine tone in gray, black and silver. Bathtubs were removed to place a real nice and spacious shower... More

I travel quite often for business and particularly favor this Hotel. Not only is the staff attentive and polite, but the mattresses and pillows are like sleeping on a cloud!!!

The room was nice, but odd. The pillows were all very flat, and the decor was modern. There were large photo murals that were not my taste (large photos of people, presumably at a pool or beach...weird). The bed was comfortable. Everything was clean. It was fine for a business trip, but I wouldn't be likely to stay there personally.

We loved this hotel. We were pleasently surprised to find that the new renovations offered 2 queen beds, rather than 2 doubles. This saved my child from sleeping on a roll away bed. The attached mall, shops and food options were so convenient and 1st class. The location was great for the airport, Bush Gardens and downtown.
