“Fantastic location beautiful views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Stayed here with my husband and work colleagues, every thing was just perfect, nothing to complain about at all, the pool bar had a great variety of refreshing cocktails along with some amazing food, the concierge was a great help at all times, the on site hertz rental was also very helpful. Would strongly recommend using the jolly trolley for getting around very reliable n cheap.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and it was great both times. The suites are roomy and always clean. Comfy beds and balconies with great bay views. The pool is so great with lots of areas to relax. Even the bathroom/lockers by the pool are spotless. The staff is so helpful. From Sandy who cleaned our room to Stan & Kim at the Tiki Bar you couldn't ask for better people. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. From families to a couples get away.

This hotel is old and in some cases it really shows - great location though. Updating rooms is tough and costly, I understand; however, certain things were not well done and out of date. Only a two gang receptacle behind the center night stand (one for the lamp and alarm clock) leaving no receptacles for a phone/pad charger or laptop power supply (the receptacle also was not secure making it somewhat dangerous to use). There are available four gang receptacles that will fit into a single gang box, very low cost easy fix to this problem - shame on Marriott (see Leviton 21254 series). Lamps with built in receptacles is also a simple fix, maybe more costly.

The new and appreciated "control TV panel/power center" was placed on the desk taking up much needed desk space for work. Although I appreciate the power center, putting it on the wall between the desk and TV would have been a better choice - also the conduit holding all the cables running to the TV was not secure with cables hanging out -sloppy. As this hotel has lots of meeting rooms, this is a business traveler's hotel, the desk is too small and adding the control center to the desk top was not a good idea.

The bathroom sliding door was exceptionally hard to move, tile and grout in the shower is stained and aged. The shower head was ridiculous, hard water damage and low water pressure made showering difficult - water temperature was good. The bars of soap really need an upgrade, after all this is a Marriott. I get better soaps at a HI Express.

Check in staff was excellent, very courteous and helpful. Front door bellman again very good. Elevators are slow. The Watercolour on-site restaurant was good with good service & food. Public areas are beautiful what one would expect from a Marriott - the lobby is beautiful, Lisa the parrot is adorable (sometimes loud!).

Overall, this Marriott does not fully live up to Mariott's reputation making the price per night a hard pill to swallow. I have been at this hotel several times even before it was a Marriott. I hope that Marriott updates its guest rooms and soon.

Room Tip: If you like a good breeze, choose a higher floor and open both the sliding door and front door - but...

This hotel and its staff are excellent. We just finished a 4 night get away and we were very pleasantly surprised. Its in a perfect location, just a mile outside on the heart of clearwater beach. All of the views are excellent, overlooking the bay. The pool is great, there is an excellent tiki bar and a boardwalk with shops. There is also a rental booth for motorized and nonmotorized water sports. The Jolly Trolley stops at the hotel so there is no need to drive. The hotel also offers a buggy service that will take you across the street to a beautiful beach. I cant say enough about the staff. The hotel was very well run and everyone went out of their way to make sure that we had an excellent time. We cant wait to go back.

Very impressed at the level of service during our stay. It was excellent. The staff was great in all departments. The only reason I'm not giving it a top rating is that the rooms are a little out dated & could use a facelift. Great location. Great Pool. Good Food.

Stayed only one night due to a conference I was attending, but that was my mistake. I should have made it a long weekend. The rooms are fantastic, with one side facing the Atlantic by the front door and the window, and the back side with a balcony facing the gulf. Room was elegant,nice upgrades. Unfortunately they do need to upgrade the weather stripping, seems the salt water does wear out and there was a gentle blowing of the wind under the door and patio door. Easy on site convenience store, walking distance to almost anything. Food at restaurants were good, but I did have room service one night and I will say it was FANTASTIC and quick! I plan on coming back, not for work, but to stay and enjoy the gulf sand and the beautiful place to sleep with a view.

We stayed here in September for one night and me and my partner agreed it's one of the nicest hotels we've had the pleasure of staying in. We stayed in a double room and it was just brilliant! The beds were so comfortable... After spending a week in the theme parks this hotel was perfect for relaxing and a great nights sleep! We were surprised by the size of the room, having a separate sitting room was great! The room in General was spacious, clean, light and homely. The public areas - the reception and the grounds around the swimming pool were very well kept, clean, open and welcoming. We ate at the pool bar and the food and cocktails were perfect! The staff were friendly and helpful. We visited the beach whilst we were here and as mentioned in other reviews it is a shale/shingle beach not sandy but it's perfect! We got the handy hotel transportation and all the staff we encountered were very friendly, professional, helpful and knowledgeable. We also ordered room service the evening we stayed and again the service was brilliant. As mentioned in other reviews the sunsets at Clearwater are spectacular, we watched the sunset from the front of our room and we're not disappointed. The views from any of the outdoor areas were breathtaking. We would definitely recommend staying here and we will definitely be returning when we visit the area again. Perfect day/night.
