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

In Tampa on business, checked in on Wednesday, March 25, 2015, for three nights. First difficulty was with the contracted valet manager, correcting and raising his voice to his staff in the entry way to the hotel in front of a ton of guests checking in. I pulled this guy aside and told him how inappropriate I felt his actions... More

I stayed at the Tampa Marriot Waterside the last week of February on a business trip. It was a very nice hotel with a beautiful lobby. A large lobby bar with a good selection of drinks. An outdoor sitting area with fireplaces next to the channel was great to relax with a drink in your hand. I had a corner... More

Recently stayed here for a girl's weekend getaway and to see family. The lobby is beautiful and so is the pool. Book a room with a water view as it is stunning, especially when you have been trapped in the cold and snow of the north. I felt it was totally worth the extra money. The food is excellent and...

i can be very picky on hotels, since I often travel for business. This place is great, very well maintained, and in a perfect location for everything from conventions to nightlife to the Port of Tampa.

This Marriott is so convenient to downtown, and being on the water is a great benefit.The pool is amazing and looks out over the channel. You can also see the bay in the distance. The only negative is parking. The Marriott offers valet, but they are often times so busy the wait can get lengthy.

This nice hotel is right in the Channelside district, and walkable to anything. I like to structure my reviews by listing good and bad points, so here it goes: The good: 27 stories of cleanliness. This hotel is clean, and I mean clean. Right on the water in the Channelside district. Walk to the Tampa Convention Center, walk to Amalie... More
