“A great choice, thanks to staff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

When I first booked this property, I was pleased with the price but wasn't sure that the hotel's location was going to be ideal for me. (But I was willing to give it a shot for the $.)

It turned out to be a great hotel selection, and I would definitely return. The staff here is the best aspect of the property -- genuinely concerned about guests, friendly, efficient, etc. We spent a lot of time at the hotel, and we interacted with a well-trained, kind staff from start to finish -- shuttle drivers, front desk, restaurant/bar, etc. Thank you to Jill, Shane, Alicia, Andrea, Jennifer and Chuck who all made me and my friend feel welcomed and well cared for at the hotel. (There were many others, too, and I regret not catching all of your names.)

The facilities were very good. Our hotel room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Decor is standard Marriott fare (which I like, personally) with sunny yellow walls. We did find the AC didn't really cool down the bathroom/hall area in our room very well, especially when we were cranking up the hair dryers and getting ready to go out. The shower water pressure was good, but we had a hard time controlling the water temperature. It seemed there wasn't much ability to get a temperature in between really, really hot and tepid.

We think it would be worth it for the property to redo the entire pool area, possibly adding a jacuzzi, outdoor bar option, etc., putting it in a better location on the property, and making it much larger. (Would be great to rent a space like this for wedding receptions and business parties, too, so it would probably pay for itself over time.) With the hotel's location in St. Pete/Clearwater, guests expect a lot more of a resort pool area than what's currently there.

The hotel is in a business area, but using the shuttle opens up a lot of options for restaurants, shopping, etc. Cabbing it can be pricey, so we tried to use the shuttle as much as possible. The ability to take the shuttle to/from the Tampa airport is a great guest perk.

The lobby and restaurant/bar areas are very attractive and welcoming.

Thank you to the fantastic staff for taking good care of us and helping us enjoy the Gamecocks' appearance in the Outback Bowl.

I usually stay here twice a year when I am in town for our company meetings. Hotel property is nice and clean. They have a great restaurant/bar area that is usually busy every night. The fitness center is one of the nicer ones I have seen. The Executive Lounge is adequate. TPA airport is just a 15 minute drive as well. There are no restaurants within walking distance but there are plenty within a 5 mile radius.

We stayed at this hotel on a Friday night. They gave us a corner room on the 8th floor with an excellent view. The room as decorated well with quality furnishings. It is difficult to describe, but to get to your room you must enter a small entry way from the hallway and then enter the door to your room. I really liked this because it decreases the sound coming from the hallway and give your room more of a private feel. Wifi was free. Breakfast was a buffet for $14.95. I hope to stay here the next time I am in St. Pete.

We recently stayed here for two nights while my husband attended a business meeting and we found the hotel to be very clean and the staff very friendly. Fitness center was perfect with plenty of cardio machines and weights. Happy hour at Vincenzo's Grill was great with excellent specials. You will definitely need a car if you stay here because it is not located near any restaraunts or stores. I agree with previous reviews in that access to the rooms is odd, but still workable. Overall, perfect place to stay for business, but would not recommend it for vacation/leisure.

Start with the best. On site restaurant Vincenzo's Grill wonderful homemade Italian food. This was not originally a Marriott. Getting to your room door is strange. Enter via card key lock through a glass door to tight hall. Two separate hotel rooms share this space. Conceirge lounge is the most bare basics lounge I've ever used. Pillows at this hotel were awful. Found hotel staff nice and hotel clean, but I personally will go to another Marriott nearby.

We stayed for one night while going to the tropicana to watch a state band. It was a 15 min drive. Staff was friendly, rooms where very clean. Not within walking distance to anything, which wasn't a problem for us. Breakfast was good. We would definitely go back if in the area.
