“fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This is my 6th visit and it's just as good, clean, staff friendly, every single visit. I have never taken the time to write a review and made a commitment to do so this visit. The free breakfast is an added pleasure , with fresh fruit, eggs, sausage, waffles, bagels, yogurt, muffins etc...something for everyone. Thanks for always being consistent in every way possible. See you next time.

Good location with free shuttle service to and from Hard Rock Casino and the Fairgrounds. Stayed here for concert at the fairgrounds, shuttle took us both ways. Also went to the casino for dinner, with free shuttle from the hotel. Rooms clean, some staff friendly.

Stayed here last night to attend concert at Fl State Fairgrounds!! Very courteous and friendly staff!! Arrived early and room ready, bottle of champagne already in room with nice note!! Also told at check in we were able to check out at a later time!! Free shuttle service to concert!! We had an issue with TV remote pretty late in evening which the front desk pleasantly took care of despite late hour. Yes I will most definitely stay here again . Only drawback (which is not hotels fault) is lack of good restaurants closer to hotel. But other than that no complaints with this hotel!!

I have stayed very frequently at this property and as a 15 yr road warrior, I find it to be well kept with a kind and friendly staff. The recently enhanced breakfast service adds another nice touch for an already strong value. The property General Manager is clearly a star in the company's organization as she is highly professional and this is reflected in both her team and in the property's neat and relatively free of wear and tear condition. I would definitely recommend this property.

Room Tip: Rooms on the East side of the building are slightly more quiet as the face opposite to the Interstat...

We took a short trip to Tampa and as always Marriott does not disappoint. We checked in early, around 12:30 and all of our requests were met. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly. The breakfast in the morning was delicious! We took their complimentary shuttle to Busch Gardens. It picked us up on time both at the hotel and at the park. Overall we had a wonderful stay.

Stayed at the hotel because of its location near to the Seminole Hardrock casino. They have a shuttle for transportation. Staff was great. Very accommodating. Room was very clean, beautifully decorated, complimentary breakfast. We were upgraded to a suite, which was great

Just returned from staying three nights along with other co-workers. The hotel is very clean, well maintained and overall nice. Beds were comfortable.

Breakfast was just okay. They should discontinue the eggs and sausage. Eggs tasted like powdered eggs and sausage was pretty bad. They do have fresh waffles that were good as was the fresh fruit.

My main and really only complaint was the wireless Internet. It was slower than dial up and it wasn't just my room. All of my co-workers had major issues. To the point that we could not load our VPN. For business users this is unacceptable and should be addressed. This hotel would have scored one star higher if not for the Internet issues.

Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay. I am glad to hear you found the hotel clean, comfortable and enjoyed our beds. I am sorry you didn't enjoy the eggs and sausage, but happy to hear you found our waffles and fresh fruit satisfying! In regards to our internet service I will definitely look into this right away...we just recently upgraded our system and so it should be very fast and convenient. I sincerely apologize this was not the case while you were staying with us and assure you this will be remedied. Thank you again for your comments, we hope to see you again on your next trip to Tampa.
