I have been in Tampa for a couple of weeks for business. The first week we stayed at the Marriott Tampa Airport. It was typical for a Marriott property; however, getting in and out of the airport was a hassle. We decided to move to the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina. It was located downtown and supposedly had superior... More

I was just wanting to get away for a little while and decided to stay here. I had a wonderful time. The rooms were very comfortable and clean, the staff was friendly, and I did not want to leave! I would definitely recommend this hotel.

I stayed here for a conference and was very satisfied with the room and hotel amenities. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Sitting on their patio by the water in the evening with dinner or just a drink is really relaxing. I will probably come back on my own in the future.

Stayed four nights (7/16-7/20/14) while attending a conference. Overall a positive experience. The service was superior, particularly the room service. The staff at the restaurants, front desk, valet, practically everywhere on the property was friendly & accommodating. The room was very comfortable, although low on drawers for clothes. The view was great, overlooking the marina. I loved the outdoor patio... More

Had a great stay at the Marriot, very quick check in and a large room. My room faced the pool and over looked the marina. Which was great one night watching the thunder storms come across the bay. The only bad point I stubbed my toe walking out of the bathroom which really hurt. Other than that the staff where... More

Stayed in early July, to attend a concert at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Great location; maybe a 5 min walk to the venue. Found the hotel to be beautiful. Large, open lobby with potted palms and free WiFi. Rooms have water views, city views and some have balconies. The bed was sumptuous. The pool area at this hotel is... More

We love coming here by Boat from St Pete. We stay overnight and enjoy the roof top pool by day. Excellent service by the pool. Drinks are wonderful and we love seeing Bruce every time here is here. He takes great care of everyone and keeps everything up to par. Great job Marriott!

BEWARE. The outside waterside patio for the bar allows smoking ANYWHERE!! Our partyfound a nice table and was enveloped in the stink and clouds from two patrons smoking cigars!! It was awful. Marriott has the ability to restrict this sort of activity to more remote locations. CLEAN THIS UP MARRIOTT
