My friends and I recently stayed twice at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel since we had concert tickets to the Midflorida Credit Union Ampitheatre. The hotel was 8 miles from the concert and is actually next the the Tampa Convention Center. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The beds were incredibly comfortable. We commented that it was sleeping on... More

Joyce in concierge lounge is tip top! She goes the extra mile when it comes to taking care of guests. She keeps the lounge clean, and filled with welcoming treats doing it all with a lighthearted smile on her face. We choose to stay at Marriot properties for its consistent quality overallI but I especially look forward to visiting the... More

Happened to visit Marriott Waterside last week for business. Great hotel and location - convenient to everything. If you get a chance to visit their Concierge Lounge I'm sure you won't be disappointed - especially if Carl Fuller is working that day Great service ....

My wife (Shelly) and I were at this hotel for a few days and we had a wonderful time. Great hotel and a great location. One of our highlights of our stay was our great experience with Alex the doorman/bellman. He reminded me once again why I like Marriott's (we are platinum members). He was a true professional. Alex was... More

Carl was very courteous and helpful in the 24th floor Lounge for breakfast - Friday morning. This is more filler data as the tool says you must include at least 200 characters for a review. Not sure why this is important.

I stay at the Tampa Marriott Waterside one or two nights on business almost every week. On each trip I visit the concierge lounge for breakfast. The service provided there by Carl Fuller is consistently excellent. There is always fresh and delicious coffee, and several good choices for breakfast fare. Carl is always very pleasant and always makes me feel... More

Beautiful accommodations with a great AAA priced room. Love the hotel restaurant with all the sports being televised. All employees were thoughtful and professional. Location to St. Pete Times Forum and Tampa Convention Center is perfect! Walking distance away.

This is not a beach hotel. This hotel is on the water and there's a beautiful marina nearby, but don't plan a Tampa beach vacation here. It's a very pretty Marriott and it's very clean and the staff is great, too. There's a big patio to sit outside over-looking the marina where you can enjoy cocktails or food. The executive... More

Have stayed at Marriott's all over the country and this was really a nice place to stay. Rooms were comfortable, beautiful view, elevators responded quickly for a hotel this size. Carl Fuller in the concierge lounge was just wonderful, attentive without being intrusive, pleasant and knowledgeable of the hotel and area. One of the bartenders in the lobby of the... More

Best Hotel I've ever stayed at. Waitress Stephanie V of the Waterside Restaurant was simply amazing. She made our visit so special. She remembered us and what we ordered and drank. We felt as if we were part of a family. Our visit to Tampa was because of my husbands serious illness wherein he was admitted to Tampa General Hospital,... More
