Every person we came across was rude, from the front desk to the servers to the restaurant. The front desk guy (there were only 2 of them) was on the phone with a long line, laughing like he was on a personal call. After 30 minutes waiting in line we got up to our room. We went to the sports... More

I'm from Miami, I stayed here for two nights for my sisters wedding. I had a great stay, the rooms smelled and looked clean. I had an awesome burger there too (: Theres a pool and a gorgeous view of the water. Definitely would book again when I go back to Tampa.

The hotel is in a good area. The customer service was good. The rooms were clean. The view was excellent! We stayed on the 27th floor and our room faced the water, beautiful site to wake up to and go to bed looking at. So ask for a room facing the water. If you are going to Busch Gardens it's... More

We are here for a church group conference and while I understand the hotel is completely booked the service was POOR! When we arrived, there was a mix up with the scheduling and payment of our rooms and we sat and waited for hours (5 1/2 to be exact). I asked to speak with the MOD twice by 2 different... More

This hotel was very very nice and we really liked it. Well located, which for us is a must, so no complains there. However, they could improve a little bit if beds were larger. Both my husband and I are tall and the full size bed was HORRIBLE for us to the point that after the third night I wanted... More

In a short way: we will not stay here again. For the money we paid we expected at least a little bit higher level of service than average. We've been to some cheaper hotels, but they were cleaner and more comfortable, the staff was friendlier, more helpful and attentive. The breakfast, water, fridge, microwave, Wi-Fi were included and available in... More

As a rewards member I should not be disappointed when staying at a Marriott, but sometimes you hope for some personality. The hotel has a great location but is just blah. The room could be any Marriott almost anywhere in the world. Just really boring. Nothing major wrong, big corporate property. Close to the convention center and the arena.
