My wife and I stayed here for one night to see a hockey game. It is a very nice place. They are clearly putting money back into this hotel to keep it nice. Doesn't matter if it's the floors, elevators, or the rooms, they look great. We had a city view which was beautiful and cheaper when we booked. I...

We attended a business meeting at the Tampa Waterside Marriott this week and were pleased to be placed on the 24th floor Concierge level. We had a fantastic breakfast each morning and snacks in the evening. Carl Fuller, in the Lounge, was friendly and provided attentive service.

I was lucky to encounter a handful of kind, hospitable staff at this hotel. But for the most part, the staff is pretty much nonchalant, uncaring and just inexperienced when it comes to superb customer service. Starting with the front desk manager Sabrina, the rude loss prevention guy Jimmy who was extremely rude and unhelpful when I need help locating...

Great location in downtown with a terrific lobby area and lots of food choices. This is obviously an older hotel. Plus, we were SHOCKED to find them charging $12.99 for WiFi access in rooms Really? In 2017?

Chose a room with a balcony - a must! Worth the extra dollars. Hotel was completely full, so the elevators were busy and the pool deck was crowded. However, there was plenty of room and service didn't suffer because of the crowds. Food was surprisingly good for a Marriott. The breakfast buffet is well worth it - wonderful omelets and...

Seriously... what's not to love about this hotel?? Our visit began much earlier than check-in time (11am), but our room was available and we were given the keys. We had plans to lay out at the hotel pool while we waited, but this was great that we could get to our room and get settled first. To our surprise, there...

This was the second time in two months that I was here for a convention. There are six elevators, but only 2 to 3 seemed to be working. We were on the 23rd floor, and average time to get to lobby was 15 min. which is unacceptable in trying to get to meetings. Elevators were usually packed, and stopped at...

A beautiful hotel well located near the arena, conference center and port of Tampa. This hotel had a lovely ambiance and nice bars and restaurants. It is right on the water. The Staff is friendly and helpful. It is a very busy hotel. I would definitely stay her again.

My husband had a conference in February & made reservations at this hotel. I read the reviews ahead of time & after reading most of them was a little concerned about staying here due to negative comments about the staff, outdated decor, uncomfortable beds & cleanliness of the rooms. I'm happy to say NONE of the negative reviews applied to...

Stayed the one night at this Marriott. One of the large Marriott's I've stayed in - USA. Overall was a nice experience, the front desk staff were friendly, prompt & professional and the room on the 24th was well appointed. The only negative was the waitress in the morning was a little grumpy. Didn't like us having a breakfast meeting....
