The Concierge Lounge always treats us like VIPs and we greatly appreciate it. It's people like Carl Fuller Jr. and the friendly and accommodating front desk staff that keeps us coming back each time! The hotel is in a great place for views of the water or easy access to enjoy Bayshore Blvd.

I took my son to champions and had a fantastic time. Alyssa was our server and she took great care of us. She was very friendly and attentive. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in the hotel.

At the hotel for a conference with my spouse. He went to the conference and I hung out at the hotel. Went to the Concierge Lounge for breakfast; food was excellent; service was excellent also.

I stayed here for one night, booking directly through Marriott, prior to a cruise. I spent a previous pre-cruise stay at the Westin and was underwhelmed, so I decided to try the Marriott this time, despite the higher price. The hotel is in a prime location, overlooking multiple channels that lead into Hillsborough Bay. The cruise terminal is a short,... More

We came here to the game, we made our reservation online and everything when we arrived was perfect, fast and comfortable. Our preferred Hotel when we travel is the Marriots and they never disappointed us, is always a pleasant and great experience.

The hotel was very nice and clean. The staff was very helpful. We loved the friendly service of Joyce Williams at the concierge level. She was very sweet and professional. The TVs seem very small for the size of the room, but other than that everything is great.

I haven't stayed at a Marriott in years because of their poor customer service, but this time I did because of a conference at the facility. Sure enough I was let down. Typically in the evening the water pressure on the top floors was very low. On the morning of my last day there was no water what so ever... More

The hotel is absolutely stunning. All the staff were friendly but one of the highlights was Carl Fuller, Jr, who worked in the Concierge Lounge. Every morning he went out of his way to make sure my day started off right. He was a breath of fresh air and always made me smile.

Great hotel in a great location in Tampa. One of the best parts of the stay was breakfast in the concierge lounge. Carl's service, friendliness and attitude made it such a great experience. Thank you Carl.

The service at the concierge lunge was excellent. Carl was very friendly and attentive. Great service. Although I did not get the others names, they were excellent as well. The lady in the evenings was wonderful.
