Staying on business, this was a pleasant escape for a few hours. Incredible view over downtown and the water, the place felt very new and clean, and at the end of the day, Joyce, the host in the concierge lounge was very welcoming and attentive. Couldn't ask for much more during a business stop. This would be a great weekend... More

We stayed at the hotel for 7 nights a few weeks ago. Overall, a very nice place to stay. If you want to be in downtown Tampa, this is a good location. Right on the Garrison Channel which flows into Hillsborough Bay so try to get a water view, looking south for nice views. The beds were very comfortable but... More

This hotel is lovely and offers great amenities, which of course are expected at a Marriott property. That being said, it's also important to have great staff. I want to commend Sudi at the front desk for the kind and gracious welcoming she gave my husband and myself when we arrived recently. We were a bit frazzled from driving through... More

I stayed at the Marriott Waterside because of a 48 hour special rate on the Marriott website. This is an absolutely beautiful hotel in a great location. As to be expected with a full service hotel, they have about everything you need on location. The staff at this hotel is top notch. When I checked in I was immediately offered... More

This hotel is located right on the water (as the name indicates). It is also right at a trolley stop and across from the Tampa Convention Center making it in the perfect location. The lobby, outside area and pool were very nice and beautifully decorated. The rooms were nice but basically your average hotel room. . .nothing outstanding or special.

The stay was perfect from the time I dropped off my car to leaving. Carl in Concierge was great and very attentive. The bellman gave me simple and quick directions on on how to get out of downtown Tampa. My view of the water was really nice .

My friends and I recently stayed twice at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel since we had concert tickets to the Midflorida Credit Union Ampitheatre. The hotel was 8 miles from the concert and is actually next the the Tampa Convention Center. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The beds were incredibly comfortable. We commented that it was sleeping on... More

Joyce in concierge lounge is tip top! She goes the extra mile when it comes to taking care of guests. She keeps the lounge clean, and filled with welcoming treats doing it all with a lighthearted smile on her face. We choose to stay at Marriot properties for its consistent quality overallI but I especially look forward to visiting the... More
