I really enjoyed the view and the customer service. The food was priced way above average but the food was good. The buffet breakfast was excellent. The location was convenient.....trolley car across the street, aquarium around the corner, walking/running trails, grocery store within walking distance. I wish the room had a microwave. Computer and printer available. Rental Car within the... More

The hotel has a concierge lounge that is staffed by a very kind and hard working individual by the name of Carl Fuller. He was kind enough to make some suggestions about things to do in the area and was very attentive to the needs of all in the lounge. The Hotel itself has a really nice campus, outdoor swimming...

I had a glass of wine and dinner at the bar in the lobby. Mort was my bartender/waiter. Mort is amazing!! He was friendly but not invasive, accommodated all requests, and even brought me a chocolate dipped strawberry as a surprise dessert. Next time you are in Tampa, head to the lobby bar and look for Mort!

The hotel is beautiful, especially in the evening. Beautiful outside area and nice to take walk and watch the boats and the water. Great location and beautiful rooms with comfy beds. The breakfast is very good and the service in the breakfast was one of the best services on our 4 week trip in FL. The only minus would be... More

I"m a little sad to be checking out today! From the moment I pulled up to the door, the service here has been exceptional! The beautiful ladies who checked me in, Fay and Dorcas, were nothing but helpful. They went above and beyond to make sure that I was accommodated and I greatly appreciate the service. I am a vegan...

I have had good experiences staying here in the past, so knew I would be pleased. The cost is a bit high, but convenience of walking distance across the street to the Convention Center was very much desired.

While in Tampa to catch a cruise, we stayed at the Marriott Waterside the night of January 3rd, 2014. We normally book a waterfront room but opted for a view of the city this time. We were pleasantly surprised to learn the circus was in town and from our balcony we had a view of the elephants and other animals.... More

The staff here is amazing!!! From Gina helping me checking in to Ana making sure our convention was flowing smoothly, this hotel has been a really nice stay. Courtney managed our convention to the nearest line of perfection possible. She really helped to pull the whole show off with no issues. The serving staff here will absolutely go out of... More

Hotel charged my card for incidentals, with no warning. Next day we changed the card to someone else's and asked to have the charge taken off mine. Each day someone said they would take care of it and no one did. I had to borrow money to eat while I was there and here I am back home 6 days... More

My girlfriend and I just stayed here this past weekend. I originally had us booked at another Marriott resort in Tampa but finally got this property to show up on Marriott.com at the last minute so I re-booked us here. I paid a lot more than I would've but after driving by the other property during our travels in town,... More
