Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all regular services and hours may be subject to change. Thus, if the idea is to spend the night in the public area, consider a plan B in case the stay inside the airport is only allowed for those who are close to boarding.
Spending the night at the airport
Tampa airport operates with many flights and connections inside the United States and some international destinations. Therefore, movement is usually constant, even through the night. There are not many comfortable places to rest, so it is advisable to have a sleeping bag or blankets handy.
Where to rest: Although there are plenty of seats, most of them have armrests. However, the floor is carpeted and there are quieter places on the third floor, in addition to couches next to gates 1-45. You can also use one of the VIP lounges for more comfort, although they close at night. Another option is the Marriott hotel, situated inside the enclosure, or other accommodations in the surroundings, many of which operate shuttle services 24 hours a day.
Baggage: There are no left-luggage offices. This means you will have to keep your baggage with you until check-in.
Eating and drinking: On level 3 there is a coffee shop open around the clock, while the rest of the shops usually close at around 11:00 pm.
Wi-Fi: Free and unlimited.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, convenience store.
