We live in the area and were part of one of the large Tampa parades, so we stayed here for the night and enjoyed our stay here. As my title states, it was a bit pricey for the area, but the location is ideal, as it is adjacent to the hockey arena (Amalie arena) and very close to the convention... More

We chose this hotel due to the proximity to the cruise terminal as we were headed on a cruise the next day. Hindsight, we should have just stayed at the hotel - the room was bigger, the staff was nicer and the weather was better. ;-) If you have a chance, take a stroll on the Riverwalk. Beautiful. We had... More

The hotel itself is in a fantastic area. The rooms are extremely nice. But most importantly the staff will stop at nothing to make sure your stay is perfect from beginning to end. We were there for our wedding and the event host(s), Jenna and Leina, took very good care of us. Angelina, the housing coordinator, also took very good... More

What a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location! The beds were comfy and the rooms and linens were clean. The only negatives was the broken coffee maker in the room and no exhaust fan in the bathroom. But the staff was very friendly and accommodating.

This is one of my favorite Marriott's to stay at in Florida, i love a room with a balcony on the waterside. The lounge is excellent with an outdoor deck, so you can enjoy the view there as well. Service is impeccable Marriott, and you can come by auto, boat or taxi. Right across the street is the trolley if... More

The Tampa Marriott Waterside is perfectly located between the Tampa Convention Center and the Amalie Arena (hockey and other entertainment) and right on the water with a nice view. We were pleased that our conference chose this hotel. It was within easy walking distance of several very nice restaurants. When a large group need transportation to a restaurant 4 miles... More

I stayed here for a conference, and enjoyed my time. The hotel itself is pretty fancy, everything is well manicured, including the rooms. It's well placed, we were within easy walking distance of a lot of restaurants and of course the River Walk. All the staff I encountered were friendly and helpful. We encountered a long wait time for lunch... More

I'm in the last month of being Marriott Gold. This means I have had the privilege of having access to the concierge lounge. The two people I got to know this past trip were Joyce (evenings) and Carl (breakfast). Both were friendly, helpful and made my fourth road trip in as many weeks much more relaxing.

OK, we stayed here for a family wedding that was in Ybor. The hotel looks beautiful. It is just a number of little things that spoil the stay. This is nothing that any of the parking valets have control over, they were all actually very nice. The sheer size of the hotel and how busy it is, the driveway to... More
