Beautiful lobby. Great outdoor seating. Located right on river walk. Expensive Wi-Fi and parking. Great service in Champions Sports Bar. Miguel was an awesome server, ask for his section. Ahmed was the manager and greeted us each time we went there. VERY disappointed that the pool was closed and we weren't notified ahead of time. Really? Remodel in April? We...

I attended a conference recently at this hotel and was presently surprised. The overall services were excellent and an ideal location on the Tampa Riverwalk. If you are taking a cruise from the port of Tampa this should be the first hotel on your selection list, within walking distance from the cruise port. I am a Marriott Platinum member and...

This property was excellent, I was there for 2 nights for business and I am a Marriott Platinum member. Carl Fuller, Jr in the Concierge lounge was particularly helpful and accommodating. This property has one of the nicer Concierge lounges I have visited. Definitely say hello to Carl when you are there, he is a very nice man! Thanks, Carl!

We were here a Friday- Sunday for a gala event that was being held at the hotel. The staff in the lobby, restaurants and bars were quite friendly and helpful. The hotel is out-dated and tired but very clean. The event that was held at the hotel was quite beautiful and the food was delicious. The event was for 700+...

This is a typical convention hotel. The rooms are average. The hotel is located on the Tampa Riverwalk which is very nice. Several of us had reserved Executive Level Rooms only to find out that the lounge is closed over the weekend. We were charged the Executive Level rate without any of the amenities until Sunday evening. Very disappointing. The...
