This is one of my favorite Marriott's to stay at in Florida, i love a room with a balcony on the waterside. The lounge is excellent with an outdoor deck, so you can enjoy the view there as well. Service is impeccable Marriott, and you can come by auto, boat or taxi. Right across the street is the trolley if... More

The Tampa Marriott Waterside is perfectly located between the Tampa Convention Center and the Amalie Arena (hockey and other entertainment) and right on the water with a nice view. We were pleased that our conference chose this hotel. It was within easy walking distance of several very nice restaurants. When a large group need transportation to a restaurant 4 miles... More

I stayed here for a conference, and enjoyed my time. The hotel itself is pretty fancy, everything is well manicured, including the rooms. It's well placed, we were within easy walking distance of a lot of restaurants and of course the River Walk. All the staff I encountered were friendly and helpful. We encountered a long wait time for lunch... More

I'm in the last month of being Marriott Gold. This means I have had the privilege of having access to the concierge lounge. The two people I got to know this past trip were Joyce (evenings) and Carl (breakfast). Both were friendly, helpful and made my fourth road trip in as many weeks much more relaxing.

OK, we stayed here for a family wedding that was in Ybor. The hotel looks beautiful. It is just a number of little things that spoil the stay. This is nothing that any of the parking valets have control over, they were all actually very nice. The sheer size of the hotel and how busy it is, the driveway to... More

My stay at Marriott Waterside started with a bump due to full occupancy, but thanks to the excellent customer service from the front desk and the consistent excellent service from Carl Fuller in the concierge lounge I'd strongly recommend this hotel to others. Downtown Tampa has a lot going on and Marriott Waterside and their staff enhance that experience for... More

We arrived for an overnight stay and were given the best and most professional care. As we checked in we received access to the Concierge Loungen there we enjoyed cocktails and appetizers in the evening and breakfast in the morning before leaving. Carl Fuller, Jr. made sure we had everything we needed for breakfast including great fruit, breads, eggs and... More

Well this is supposed to be a really nice Marriott but it isn't! We arrived hoping to spend some time at the awesome pool we saw in the photos however the pool was being renovated and was totally dug up! Would have been nice to know that prior to booking! Rooms need updating and bathroom was tiny and moldy. Walls... More

Found a quiet place to have lunch near the Gasparilla celebration. My wife and I split a Caesar salad and a grilled chicken sandwich. Both were very good and the waiter was kind enough to have them split so we did not have to jockey it around at the table. We sat at window overlooking the water, they also had... More
