My family of 4 just returned from a 2-night stay at the Marriott Suites. Our experience started off a little disappointing with a yucky room on the 2nd floor. Things were ALL uphill after a change in room the next day plus a wonderful breakfast buffet experience. The 2nd room was all that and more with beautiful views of the bay from our balcony plus the beach/Gulf view from the other side. It's why we came to Clearwater and made our visit complete and memorable. The Starbuck's in the lobby was awesome and made for a nice treat after a visit to the beach. Although the beach was a nice shuttle ride away (versus direct access) it was so worth it! There were also some great food options as suggested nearby the hotel. In conclusion, the hotel staff was phenomenal, especially the restaurant hostess. She made us feel EXTRA special and we were most appreciative of the hospitality. Looking forward to a return visit!!!
