Nice hotel, with upgrades coming but all elevators go to all floors yet signs say elevators are regulated by floor. Rooms are decent. Maybe a view not overlooking a roof top might get a better feel. Today during meeting the hvac kicked in and everyone thought it was coming thru the ceiling (salon5-6). The quick eat menu was good and...

I was at the hotel for a business conference and the staff was very helpful. The front desk staff combined my two reservations into one so i would not have to change rooms, upgraded me to a balcony room. The concierge lounge featured a very good breakfast and comfortable seating, including an outdoor patio to enjoy the great Tampa weather....

I stayed there for an onsite conference. Conference attendees were treated very well and both the meals and the coffee breaks offered excellent and tasty items. The AV was consistently reliable,the staff helpful, the temp consistent, the chairs comfortable and the lighting was good.

...and if you're a runner, that's a good thing. Beautiful property. Comfortable bed. The sheets could stand to have a little higher thread count. Lobby bar is great. Split the Cuban sandwich with my wife an hour after our 2 mile run, and it was still a bit too much. Delicious! After I complimented Bartender Mort on the Bloody Mary...

This was at best an "average" experience. Despite an email confirmation for three consecutive nights, after our first night I received the folio under the door the first morning. I called the front desk and they confirmed my reservation was for three nights but they wanted me to move my room (without any explanation why). I told them I wouldn't....

I came here for a school trip and it was very good. The hotel is very nice and they have TLC unlike the Embassy. I have stayed at both the Marriott and the Embassy and I prefer the Marriott much more. Their breakfast is also extremely yummy. More vegan options would be nice.

I'm here in Tampa, for a convention, (SSPC 2017), as much as possible I try to stay at a Marriott if available and the rate is Ok, but my note has nothing to do with the Hotel per se, but with the Concierge Lounge at 24th floor. What makes a Lounge better than the others??? The food or drinks?? the...

We stayed here the night of our wedding and i cant say enough about the staff. I am a platinum member and booked the hotel in advanced but never indicated an occasion or reason for visit. I didn't expect any special treatment. However part of the platinum perks is an upgrade in room type if available or requested. When we...

Great hotel and location right on the harbor. Lots of close restaurants and trolley right out the front door. Concierge Lounge service was excellent and Carl Fuller took great care of all of the Marriott guests.

Beautiful lobby etc. Rooms are average. If you pay extra for balcony you do have a nice view...the service is the problem. The maid missed our room one day. No, we did not have a do not disturb sign hanging. We were gone all day and came back to a room that had not been cleaned. We called housekeeping. It...
