My stay did not start well. It was very late, very dark, there was no clear signage at the front entrance and there was no parking anywhere near the hotel. I parked illegally and ran in. Front desk staff was busy, on the phone and attending to another customer but eventually explained that there was a parking garage across the street. I wasn't too happy about parking and walking alone, but he assured me it was safe. When I returned to the hotel, I checked in and asked about food. Wrong question - there is no restaurant in the hotel. I bought a bunch of junk food from the front desk store. The selection was terrible and very unhealthy but at least the mark-up was not excessive. Finally made it to the room which was a suite with a full, well-equipped kitchen, large closet, desk area etc. Everything was in working order and clean. However, the decor had a low-budget look. The red and dark wood color palette was certainly not restful or uplifting. A pleasant surprise was the Paul Mitchell products in the bathroom. The immediate (walkable) local area is pretty depressing with nothing whatever except other hotels, surface parking and parking garages, one free standing restaurant and a spine clinic. Breakfast the next morning was adequate. This hotel is just average and would suit someone who 1) wants to be near the airport and 2) likes/needs a suite style room with full kitchen and cooking facilities.

Had an Ac issue but was rectified the next day. Breakfast isn't nothing to call home about. Clean rooms nice staff. Parking is trick at least and there is a lot nearby to do malls, restaraunts and beaches

I was having a bad day. I was tired, agitated and quickly losing the heart to keep fighting. I had flown from the UK to Los Angeles for a short 2 days then taken a red-eye to Tampa. That flight was lated and landed even later due to air traffic control issues. At the airport, I had trouble renting a car that was not reserved in my name or with my card but that I was listed as the driver of. I was so behind schedule I missed one appointment and stood to lose another. I was able to get the rental car just in time but not in time to miss the torrential rain. I had been without meaningful sleep for about 48 hours when Tyler greeted me. Again, I was scheduled to stay at the TownePlace Suites but yet again, not made in my name or with my card. Tyler questioned me and my reasoning (as he should) but was incredibly friendly and tried to be as helpful as possible. He didn't have to let me check in, and I could have waited in the lobby until the others traveling in my party arrived to corroborate my story, but gratefully it didn't come to that - did I say I was so, so tired? Tyler helped me to check in and even gave me a plastic fork with which to eat my Chipoltle. I finally had food and a bed and for the first time in the day could stop and breath. A plastic for has never made me so happy. After spending some time in the room there was a knock on the door. It was Tyler, still smiley and happy with a gift bag of goodies and a hand-written note to help cheer me up ( I must have been in a really sorry state). Again, he didn't have to go the extra mile to make a bad day better, but he did. Whatever you need, this hotel will help you get it. Highly recommend.

For a Marriott branded hotel, this place is small. Also, it's all red! The lobby was very squeezed, and it was especially squeezed in the hallways. I don't know if there is another elevator in the back, but we only encountered one. Overall, decent place.

This was the perfect place for quick overnight business trip. I checked in late around 9:30p and the young man at the front desk (Tyler) was very courteous, professional and efficient. The room was a studio Queen and had a full kitchen complete with dishes, cutlery and a dishwasher. There was a two burner stove but no oven. The furnishings were very up to date and comfortable. The bed was the perfect combination of soft but firm enough. The room was very clean and more than spacious for one person. Parking was free as was a delicious breakfast in the morning, complete with eggs, sausage, waffles, fruit, cereal, bagels, toast, muffins, juice, coffee and yogurt. The hotel is across from Tampa International airport and they have a complimentary shuttle. The surrounds were very safe with plenty of upscale restaurants within 1/2 mile. I booked with my Marriot points which was ideal as this is considered a tier 3 and only cost 15000 points. The room rate without points was around $140-160, which is why I did not give five stars. I would put the fair market value around $110-120 a night. Which you may be able to find on Trip Advisor, Expedia, Priceline or another travel site. All in all I would highly recommend for solo business travelers. A larger room would be ideal for couples but I am not sure if I would recommend for families with small children.

If you need a reasonable place to stay for a wedding - this is the place!!! My daughter was married at the Tampa Aquarium and we had numerous family members flying and driving in to stay for three to four nights. Free ride to and from airport. 20 minute drive from downtown Tampa. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Our suite had two large bedrooms with double queen beds, a living room with sofa pullout and sitting chairs. Kitchen had a table, full size stove, microwave, dishwasher and a fridge big enough to handle the wedding cake!!! The bathroom was not big enough for six adults but the sink was outside the tub/toilet area so at least people could brush their teeth while someone was showering. Bathroom was only reason I could not give the room a five star rating. Breakfast on main floor provided. Pool area had seating under umbrellas for the smokers in our family. Half the price of the downtown hotels with larger rooms. And, they allow pets. Parking is the only thing that is a little tricky (don't park behind the hotel behind the fence). Easy to get on I-4.

Stayed here on a recent business trip to Tampa. The place is close to the airport. The hotel is clean. Plenty of restaurants but withing 10-15 mins drive. I would stay here only if I need to be close to the airport else better options are there

The front desk staff (Megan/Zach/Tyler)is terrific. This is one of the few hotels that has a heated pool long enough to swim laps. (Bring goggles, as the government mandates pretty high chlorine levels.)

I went to the Townplace Suites after experiencing an emergency at my home and needing a place for me and my 2 dogs to stay. The clerk was extremely kind and the manager heard my story and came out to comfort me and speed the check-in process. It was only 10 am and check-in is at 3 pm but knowing that we had no place to go, they prepared a room for immediate occupancy. The room is spotless and fully equipped with every essential. The bed is comfortable and there are charging stations on both night stands. I will recommend this property to everyone I know who is in Tampa for business or pleasure.

The property is very close to Tampa International Airport and major highways heading towards Clearwater (Gulf-to-Bay Causeway) and Largo/Pinellas Park, FL plus St. Petersburg (Howard Franklin Causeway). International Plaza, Westshore Mall, and Dale Mabry all within 2-3 miles of easy driving. Hotel was quiet, clean, and the staff professional and efficient. On a recent business trip, did not get a chance to partake in the Breakfast that is offered, but if it at the typical standard for a Marriott property of this type, it should have been suitable for getting the day started. For many other hotel properties in the general area the per night cost for this property was a bargain in my opinion. A plus was that it is located away from the typical traffic one finds as you get closer to other nearby hotel properties. Tampa has improved its highway and connectors feeding them, but make no mistake, staying away from the typical traffic can be a big plus, especially since traffic lights are incredibly long which only adds to the gridlock during peak hours.
