The evening of arrival, the hotel elevators were compromised (something to do with the sprinkler system). The staff ran the few elevators that were working, and did a great job with this...they were even smiling! In fact, the elevators were faster with the staff running them than when they went back online automatically. Concierge lounge - nice facility and great... More

This is a beautiful hotel in a great location! The rooms are large enough and nice and there's a Starbucks in the hotel and nice bar in and outside the hotel. We were only here for a quick night stay but I would definitely go back. The only thing I would remotely change is the bathroom is small and it's... More

I attended a conference in November '14. The check-in process for this property was so very poor (especially being a Marriott Gold member). I did not gain access to my room until 6pm. While they gave me another room to occupy in the mean time, I kept receiving excuses for its lack of availability and no communication. Something obviously was... More

Had wings and beer in the sports bar this past Sunday, Alyssa handled our large table of rowdy military guys. She was a pro, and took great care of us! She was handling half the place and we never had to wait for food or another round. Give her a raise!

My girlfriend and I were recently in Tampa and stayed at the Waterside. It was a very relaxing stay highlighted by her visit to the spa. She took advantage of the two for $100 special. Sue was outstanding!!

I found the entire staff to be extremely pleasant and helpful from the front desk to the Concierge lounge (special kudos to Carl Fuller, Jr.!). During my stay the hotel experienced a problem with the elevators not running properly, so the staff quickly instituted a plan to run the service themselves. I found it to be only a mild inconvenience,... More

The hotel itself is beautiful but the service was terrible. Booked a romance package with a balcony water view. Save your money on the water view - it's nothing special looking at the condos across the small channel. The package included chocolate covered strawberries and champagne. At check-in (2pm) I asked that the strawberries and champagne be delivered right away... More

I come to this military medicine session every year and the Marriott just keeps getting better. The highlight is always the Concierge club and Carl Fuller! Courteous, diligent and attentive to your every need. Thanks Carl for 5 Star service!

I would give the hotel itself a 5, but since the staff are part of what makes the hotel it will have to be a 3. We had booked a room as part of a conference that my husband was attending. We upgraded to bay/water view and asked for a king bed. The girl who checked us in informed us... More
