The staff, lobby, and lounge area are very nice. The location is excellent, lots of great things to do walking distance. Hotel hallways and rooms very clean and comfortable. The pool area - is in dire need of a make over. No shade any where (criminal in this heat) Provide some covering of some kind if the umbrellas blow away... More

We really enjoyed our view from the 14th floor, even though it overlooked the city, not the bay. The room was bright, clean and comfortable. The hotel has direct access to a walking path that runs along the bay. I don't understand why they don't have wifi available in the guest rooms. We took my 90 year old mother to... More

The food was amazing! Pistachio encrusted scallops, delmonic steak and lobster - A 10+++ ! And the best part was our wait staff Sabatini - charming, friendly and great service. The chef came by several times to make sure all was well with our meal - IT WAS!! But again, friendly, courteous service. This was the first night of our... More

I often stay at Marriotts. The Waterside was great, nice view from my room. Attentive and friendly staff. During my stay there was a large conference and the staff was tested for sure. Clean room, no complaints. The Concierge lounge was great for snacks and breakfast. Scrambled eggs, a little runny for me. I did notice the valets were harried,... More

stayed here after RUSH concert- began with checkin-parking is all valet for $24-a bit expensive and there's no place to park elsewhere because there's a racket where the hotel has taken over nearby parking lots- check in/out was flawless and quick suite room was nice but only complaint is needs a microwave for a suite-had to request a refrigerator which...

Parking was a nightmare. At least 60 or 70 people waiting to check in, 2 people working the desk. Room service, tried three time no one ever answered the phone. A beautiful hotel, the room was nice, the location was great, but grossly understaffed. Ice machine was broke, vending choices very limited. They could have made and extra $60 to... More

This hotel served as our multi-night headquarters for the Memorial Day weekend. We were in Tampa for the Rush R40 concert and to enjoy the downtown Tampa area, including Ybor City nightlife and shopping in Hyde Park Village. The location for the hotel was excellent, right next to the Malaie Arena where the concert was held. The room was fantastic... More

This hotel is the only hotel in Downtown Tampa in our opinion. We host a few groups there annually each time we are in the Tampa area. Beautiful to say the least and the service is just excellent, five star really.

Rooftop pool with pool side bar, they even served Popsicle for free. Excellent service and good food in all the facilities. Right on bay. Love the concierge room for breakfast, snacks and late night . Has walking/bike path along bay. Walked to some of the best Mexican food.

My wife and I stayed at this Marriott in February 2015. The hotel is nice, we had a room with a view. I recommend this Marriott. One criticism is that the hotel was understaffed the weekend we were there. For instance, when we checked out, there were no bellmen available and the valet desk wouldn't even answer their phone. We... More
