Travel Tips and Details

 

Airport Transportation

         Plan to fly into Tampa International Airport, located approximately 30 minutes from NAYDO hotels, depending on time of day.

         Take a taxi or ride sharing option to and from the hotel. Taxi cost from airport to hotel is in the $26-$32 range.

 

Hotel Parking for JW Marriott Tampa and Tampa Marriott Water Street

         There is one hotel parking lot for both hotels and the cost is $32 plus tax per night with in and out privileges.

         There is a public parking lot behind the hotel where the cost is $2 per hour with a maximum of $14 per day.

 

Getting Around Town

Downtown Tampa is very walkable, but there are other convenient options:
 

         TECO Streetcar – The TECO Streetcar System is a 2.7-mile electric heritage streetcar line connecting Downtown Tampa, Channel District, and
         Ybor City with a stop right outside NAYDO’s two hotels. http://tecolinestreetcar.org/

 

          Pirate Water Taxi – Take a water taxi to see Tampa with 14 stops located near attractions, museums, restaurants, and parks. Stop #7
          Convention Center (right by NAYDO hotels) is where you can buy tickets. Once purchased, a wristband allows you to hop on and off the taxi at
          any stop for unlimited rides all day!

What to Pack/What to Wear

       Bring a mask & hand sanitizer (we don’t know what requirements will be in effect by April 2022 but just to be on safe side…)

       Bring business cards - One is required when you check-in onsite at NAYDO registration for a chance on a free 2023 NAYDO Conference
