I went to Tampa for a professional conference and stayed here. Had an excellent experience overall -- it's very centrally located and is right on the river walk boardwalk, a quick walk from other hotels and the Tampa Convention Center where the conference was held. Just a five minute walk across the street to the beautiful hockey stadium, the Tampa... More

I want to thank Starbucks barista Adrienne Milburn for her excellent service. As a conference attendee, it has been a pleasure to talk with Adrienne as she prepares my coffee, one of many during her long work hours.

If you are at the hotel and want to relax a little bit, I recommend the spa services. Denise for reflexology was amazing. I hadn't had that service before, and now I'm worried that no one will be as good as Denise! While it is a little pricey, it was definitely worth it. Judy the manicurist was also excellent on...

Stayed here for a conference. Room was fine, comfy bed. But the internet - even if you paid $17+ for the so-called 'fast' speed - was appallingly slow. I was trying to do work on a deadline and web pages loaded so slowly I could not. My email took ages to download. Unacceptable for a business/conference hotel (and the conference... More

Arrived for R&R for a long weekend. Hotel was full but I was able to check into my room fairly early. The staff was attentive and responsive. Special thanks to Hazel who made things right on a couple of occasions after minor hiccups with the room location and room service. Perfect location and excellent customer service made this a good...

Stayed here last week for two nights. We paid extra for a balcony waterside room. The view was great but the room was no different than hotels that are 1/2 the cost. I was shocked to find that the same days we stayed that the price for similar rooms had skyrocketed all the way to $500+ a night. Luckily I... More

Very nice hotel and very pleasant environment around hotel. The staff have been wonderful and the services have been expertly provided. Carl Fuller, Jr. in the Concierge Lounge on the 24th has been particularly friendly and helpful. He kept the place clean and orderly during my stay.

Great location along the waterside, arena, Publix (grocery store) and a short cab ride to Bern's. Very busy hotel, very social lobby, Starbucks mini location. Very nice for morning walks and brunch on the patio.

I recently returned from a visit to Tampa. My daughter had a sporting event in the area. I had recommendations to stay here but balked a little at the price. I considered the Sheraton but in the end heeded my friends advice. I was really grateful. It is a typical Marriott - big and beautiful. It's well maintained . The... More

If you have backaches, let Susan get you back in action. I have some serious muscle issues and Susan found the offending muscles and gave them a workout. That was a week ago and I am feeling better than I have in a year! She also gave me pointers on how to relieve muscle knots on my own. I Highly... More
