This was by far one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. The staff was amazing and the service was great. The beds provided were extremely comfortable and the sizes of the rooms were great. If you get the right room you can get an excellent view of the times new forum stadium.

Just got back from a stay at the Marriott waterside and loved this property. Right in the heart of downtown close to convention center. On site bars and restaurants were very good and close walk to other options. Concierge lounge features a great outdoor space and one of the more attentive staffs that I have experienced - particularly Carl who... More

We were there after our son's competition downtown. The hotel is very nice and located right next to the convention center. They also have a nice sports bar with tons of sports memorabilia. Great place to eat if you are looking for something close by the convention center.

We have stayed in both the hotel and the Marina, and must say that this is our favorite hotel. The Lobby is one of the most beautiful you will see. The Marina has floating docks and excellent dockside assistance/service from Tony the Dock master. Randy and Gaynor Dietz

This is the 4th year in a row that our boating group has traveled to the Marriott Waterside Marine for the 4th of July. All the amenities of the marina and hotel are top notch. Everyone is friendly and Tony, the dock master is the best. He is professional, knowledgable, dependable, very friendly and always has a smile. He makes... More

On vacation staying the night before a cruise (right next to the port, great location). Blown away by the service, every single person has been so helpful and friendly. Bellhop was wonderful, front desk was super professional and had menus for us for some late night pizza. The sports bar in the lobby has great food and we had an... More

We stay at the marina several times a year and have always had excellent service. Tony is the dock master and has been for quite a few years. He goes above and beyond to make sure everyone is well taken care of. Highly recommend the marina and hotel and it's amenities whenever you are in Tampa.

Very accommodating hotel and awesome staff. Concierge room was amazing- Joyce Williams was such a joy to be around and helped us with whatever we needed. We had a party of 8 and she made sure we were accommodated at all times.

Have stayed here twice since my previous review. I am a Marriott Elite Rewards Gold level member. During the check in process they do not appear to value a Gold reward member as other Marriott properties do. On our first visit back to this property I was told I would have to pay for any room upgrade. Which meant they... More

Bill H, Resident Manager at Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina, responded to this review

Thank you for your recent stay and for taking time to provide feedback on Trip Advisor. It’s clearly disappointing to learn about your first impression during the arrival process as well as several of the "overlooked" details you referred to. I certainly welcome more specific feedback such as arrival day/time and perhaps any of our hosts you interacted with during... More
