Carl Fuller Jr at the Concierge Lounge goes out of his way to accommodate my daughter and I. We appreciate him and the extra effort he put in his job to make us feel welcome. He does it with a warm smile and always make sure to restock the food and beverages. Thank you Carl for all you do!!!!!

This is a downtown Tampa hotel next to the convention center so you have few parking options, valet parking with the hotel is $24.00 a day and that is where the fees start adding up. The staff was friendly during check in but there was a 10 minute wait for the elevator. There are a limited number of elevators to... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for a business trip. The rooms were nice, housekeeping and room service workers were extremely friendly. I had the opportunity to spend some time by the pool and the staff walked around offering everyone complimentary Popsicles! Very nice touch!! The views from the room were fantastic and the breakfast downstairs was yummy.

We wanted to stay near the Amalie Arena so we could see Bette Midler. Friends that go to see the Bolts often, recommended the Marriott. Glad she did, the hotel is a block away from the arena and for $2.00 you can catch the trolley to Ybor city, which we did and had a great dinner out. We returned to... More

My room was clean and had a great view. The location is OK for business. There are not a lot of things to... More

Well when you have a major event it might be nice to have more than 2 food items to eat at the cocktail party and to have more than 1 bar tender at each station with 500 people at a major event. Then upon leaving the valets lost our car and could not find it for 30'minutes. Not impressive at... More

DoctorVonCueBall-Thank you for your comments regarding the recent event attended at the Waterside. We were certainly proud to host the Ronald McDonald gala and partner for such a worthy cause. Of course we extend an apology for any concerns during the event, and particularly regarding the encounter with valet. Please know that we strive to provide a flawless experience for... More

Stayed for a conference. The location is excellent. Across the street from the hockey arena, on the canal with a great walkway/exercise path, across the street from the trolley stop, with several great restaurants close by. The aquarium is within walking distance, and "Ybor City" is just a trolley ride away. The staff were professional, helpful and friendly. The hotel... More

This hotel is beautiful from the moment you step inside, they've done a great job with making you feel instantly relaxed. The lobby has infused ice water by the entrance, a very light pleasant floral smell and large beautiful palm trees decorating the high ceiling lobby. I arrived with my mother and 1 year old to attend a convention (and... More

I'm a Marriott Gold member who travels every week for business. My husband and I extended my trip in Tampa to enjoy a night without kids and the experience has been great! We slept in and were late to the concierge breakfast, but Carl Fuller helped us snag a hot meal that had already been cleared from the lounge. We... More
