The services of Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina were great. Attention was given to any challenges I faced, and options were available. The VIP service was exceptional, and I appreciate the care and attention of Joyce Williams! She was very professional and thoughtful!

There is no free Wi-Fi My son went to take the Florida Bar and of course too his computer to study. But, the computer usage is not free. You are better off staying across the street where you do...

Was in Tampa last week and stayed at the Marriott Waterside Hotel. Great hotel with great service. Stopped into Champions on Saturday afternoon and met Spencer and Miguel, mind you these are the waiters who served us. We stayed for almost 4 hours totally engaged by these two gentlemen. We learned about interesting aspects of the city and college life... More

The hotel is beautiful. The staff was really helpful and welcoming. My only complaint was our room didn't get cleaned for 2 days straight. I had to call for clean towels. The cleaning woman spoke no English so it was very hard to communicate with her.

My friend and I stayed at this hotel the second week of July for a show at the Times Forum. As a person who works in the hotel industry the number 1 thing I look for is great service. Upon arriving to the hotel I was greeting by the valet who were very friendly and I appreciate their warm welcome.... More

My girlfriend and I had a great stay overnight at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina. Great views, great pool, great staff, great gym and Champions (one of the restaurants located near the main lobby) was phenomenal. Do yourself a favor and ask for Alyssa at Champions. She will make sure you have a great dining experience! We will... More

Great location and close to some great restaurants. My husband brought his playstation with him and the staff (Dioni) was very helpful and setting up the system. The room was fine and we asked for a refrigerator and they provided one. We visited the pool once and it was very nice and large. The hot tub is very small -... More

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
