Tampa Airport Marriott finishes $9M overhaul

 Tampa Airport Marriott, an AAA Three-Diamond property situated inside the Tampa International Airport on Florida’s west coast, has announced the completion of its $9 million renovation project, inclusive of a full guestroom transformation.

The property’s renovations include a complete overhaul to the guest rooms, including bathrooms and suites, as well as revitalization to the Concierge Lounge and corridors.

Featuring triple-pane glass windows, Tampa Airport Marriott’s 298 guest rooms – inclusive of three suites – now boast the Refreshing Mint Marriott design package. The rooms now feature a nature-inspired, fresh green palette and organic elements throughout, with the addition of new upholstery, bedding, accents and carpeting. Splashes of mint green compliment the rich chocolate brown present in the carpet and accents, while dark burgundy wine upholstery with deep pattern texture is utilized on the ottomans.

All guestrooms now also have 37” high-definition LCD TVs; new, destination-inspired photographic wall art; soft goods including mattresses, box springs, bedding and drapery; improved lighting; and renovated bathrooms. The hotel’s bathrooms, which were previously small, European-style, have been completely remodeled and now feature glass shelving and vanity storage. The hotel’s 191 king-bedrooms boast a new, walk-in shower with frameless doors in the bathrooms, and the addition of a sleeper-sofa in the rooms.


Corridors throughout the property have been revitalized with new carpeting, lighting and signage, as well as refinished doors to all guestrooms.

Featuring 16 meeting rooms and 18,000 square feet of total meeting space, the Tampa Airport Marriott’s Concierge Lounge renovations included installation of new carpeting, lighting, wallpaper, accents, furniture and connectivity capabilities throughout. The Concierge Lounge now also offers family room-style chairs and sofas; a communal table that seats up to six people; and a bar-style seating area that runs the wall-length, floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the runway. Guests also have access to a computer station and printer.

To further enhance its amenities, the Tampa Airport Marriott also plans to refresh its lobby restaurant beginning spring 2012.
