The property itself is gorgeous, well maintained and the staff is friendly for the most part. I didn't stay at the hotel overnight but I was there for 2 days for a conference. Whatever you do, DO NOT VALET YOUR CAR! There is not much of a rush to take care of you. They will leave your car unattended with... More

I was in Tampa in mid-July for a 5 day conference, and my friend made the hotel arrangements through our denomination. After almost a month to think this time through, here are my reflections: The Good - 1) Every single staff person I dealt with was calm, professional, and extremely helpful. Considering that our conference attenders filled a lot of... More

My husband had a very good massage at the Spa . I was unable to experience the Waterside Grill as we sat... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. From the moment you enter, there is no shortage of staff to help with anything you desire. Information, directions, and helpful service are just a smile away. We stayed on the concierge level and enjoyed the conversation and helpful service of Carl Fuller during the breakfast hours. We had... More

One of the servers, Carl Fuller, Jr. was great! He was attentive and very professional! The concierge lounge offers a great continental breakfast in the morning and is a nice place to relax or go on the computer and check your emails while traveling.

I have stayed at this property multiple times. As many have mentioned, you can't beat the views from the upper level floors. It is ideally located in the heart of downtown. But there is a huge mystery regarding my previous and now current stay. Why do I always smell cigarette smoke in my room? I don't smoke. This property is... More

I had the experience of being served by one of the most professional Marriott representatives while utilizing the Concierge Lounge (Carl Fuller). Marriott should be proud to have such a professional of staff.

I will go back to this hotel again. Nice views with a nice location. They have free shuttles to and from the airport but it fills up fast so get yourself on the list ASAP. Ask for extra pillows or an extra blanket and house keeping is quick and courteous. Order some ice cream and a nice steak delivered to... More

Had an excellent stay at the Marriott Waterside! In downtown Tampa, right next to the convention center, this hotel has such a spectacular look, feel, design and dang, what a view! The pool area felt like a high end resort and the walk along the water and marina was first class all of the way. Getting around the hotel is... More

As a frequent Marriott guest, this stand out as one the most accomodating. Check in was quick after traveling for some time that was a relief The sports bar on premises felt like it was off premises and had a nice selection on the menu.
