This busy hotel is in a great location if you are visiting the Convention Centre, attending a Hockey game or overnighting before a cruise. The rooms are comfortable and quite spacious. Ours could have done with a spring clean, stains on the curtains and bed skirt were a little grubby. The dining was adequate but kitchen renovations meant we had... More

I have stayed here many times over the years for work because of the location to the Tampa Convention Center. This visit was also for work and certainly not to the level that a Marriott property should be. When paying nearly $300 a night you expect a certain level of service from a hotel. This was not the case. Room... More

This was the second time my wife and I stayed here for a hockey game. The service is excellent and the location is directly across the street from the arena. Also Ybor City is just a couple of blocks away with many craft breweries and great food.

We were there for a conference and the stay was great. The staff were helpful in providing information about the conference and the area. The location is in close proximity to a lot of great restaurants and attractions. The beds were really comfortable and we loved the view from our balcony!

Great place and location. Clean and very accommodating. Definitely will stay here again if I'm ever going to another event in this area. Food and drinks inside and out, cabs everywhere too. Amalie Center across the street..walking distance.

Carl Fuller Jr was a great attendant! He was very hospitable and courteous and made it a pleasure to visit the lounge each day. He took great pride in ensuring the lounge was always pristine and comfortable for the guests.

I stayed here on a recent vacation to get some Florida sun. The location on the water and Riverwalk is very nice. It was very relaxing to sit on the balcony or patio and watch the boats and birds. The property is extremely clean and we'll maintained. The outdoor patio has some nice padded seating, fire pits, and plenty of... More

this is a well-worn vacation destination. It shows the wear with broken elevators resulting in long waits. Two of six elevators were out of service. The wifi was horrible, even the paid option. My toilet didn't work properly. The housekeeping must have noticed. I would have complained by I was tired of complaining about elevators and wifi. Also the place... More

Have stayed here a number of times due to conferences in Tampa. The hotel is conveniently located within easy walking distance of the Convention Center, and had its own large meeting space on site. I have always had a great experience. This last trip, I have to say a big "thank you" to Peter at the front desk for helping... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Tampa Marriott for a wedding. The room was large and comfortable with a view of the water and Harbor Island. Loved the location, right on the Riverwalk. Tampa should be congratulated for investing in such a wonderful walking trail. The hotel was within walking distance of restaurants and bars. My one complaint... More
