OK so this is a good hotel. A very good hotel. But, if you think you are going to Florida, and this is on the beach, it's not. You are at a minimum 30 minutes away from the gulf and the soft sands of the gulf of Mexico. The hotel has easy access to the Amalie arena where the Tampa... More

I stayed at this Marriott again for the annual Florida Music Educators' Conference. Though it's expensive to book a room there, the proximity to the convention center, the views, the rooms and the concierge lounge keep me coming back to stay at this property. Had a wonderful room, thanks to a kind front desk employee (I wish I had gotten... More

We had booked a Caribbean cruise with NCL and decided to stay in Tampa for 2 nights prior to boarding the ship. Took a cab from the airport and quoted $25, but cabbie tried to charge us $30 but I only paid $25 plus tip. The Waterside Hotel and Marina is in a great location for everything Tampa has to... More

From the moment we entered the lobby we were impressed. The lobby was stunning and decorated beautifully for the holidays.There was no line up to check in and our room was ready early which is great after a long day of travel. Upon entering our room we couldn't help but notice the amazing views from the large window and balcony.... More

I had the good fortune of attending a business related conference at this hotel recently. This was a beautiful venue, with wonderful rooms and terrific food. The riverwalk was a great place to get in a daily walk and enjoy the water views. The staff were friendly and responsive. The pool area, spa and exercise rooms all provided exceptional accomodations.... More

Our 4 day stay was wonderful with prompt response to an issue with the heating in our room. We could not have asked for a better view and the staff at the concierge lounge was so efficient and helpful. Special thanks to Carl Fuller, Jr. for the great service!

This Marriott hotel is the best one I've ever stayed in. Everyone was nice. The room had a spectacular view of the harbor. Excellent food and service at Champs. Looking forward to staying at this hotel in the future and getting the chance to visit Ybor.
