We came to Tampa for a FLA getaway and then to visit family. Phase One was to find a nice hotel in Tampa. Check. The Marriott Waterside was a great hotel in a great location on the edge of Downtown, right on the River Walk. The hotel lobby is a wonderful 3 story space with tall palm trees that say "Yes, you are in FLA." At night we sat on the rear patio with fire pits sipping our cocktails next to the water channel. We stayed for 2 nights. The room was fine and up to date. The hotel staff was pleasant and helpful. Phase Two was to roam around Tampa. We had a rental car, but if not the trolley across the street will take you to the Ybor district. Easy to get a cab to go anywhere. In our travels we checked out the Hilton and the Embassy, and we were glad that we chose the Marriott Waterside.
