My husband deployed for a year overseas but attended a conference in Tampa so as a surprise to our kids I met him there. The hotel staff knew of our situation and made sure at check in to not mention the reservation being under my husbands name. They were SUPER friendly and even upgraded us from a 1 bedroom to...

The positives: The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is good as it's downtown and close to the University of Tampa campus. Rooms have a kitchenette. The stay includes free breakfast. The queen bed was very comfortable. The negatives: Hotel is old and feels old. Parking lot is very tiny. There is a 2nd lot (which we always... More

Our company booked almost 30 rooms for a two week project and had such an amazing experience. The amenities alone were enough to make our group happy. Beautiful outdoor area, breakfast with endless options, clean and spacious rooms, and a fitness room with much more than just a treadmill. Every staff member we encountered was very responsive to our needs... More

I routinely check every room i stay in with a uv light. The light will expose any bodily fluids and most hotels are very scary to say the least. I checked every part of this room and there was absolutely NOTHING. Evidence that housekeeping does an excellent job. The housekeeping manager Glenny is the friendliest ever and helpful. definitely I... More

I checked into the Marriott Residence Inn Downtown Tampa to have day surgery at Tampa General Hospital the next day and I was alone.

My wife and I had just completed our Florida vacation and were at the airport ready to go home.

This hotel could use freshening, but otherwise it was a very nice stay. My room was clean, as were the common areas. I found the staff to be very pleasant and accommodating. The evening receptions were not as nice as some Residence Inns, but I don't always partake in them anyway. The hotel is about 4-5 blocks from the streetcar... More
