“Great Marriott property and value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Just got back from a stay at the Marriott waterside and loved this property. Right in the heart of downtown close to convention center. On site bars and restaurants were very good and close walk to other options. Concierge lounge features a great outdoor space and one of the more attentive staffs that I have experienced - particularly Carl who huddled to make sure everyone had what they need.


I stay 100+ nights annually. If you're in Tampa for business this is a great choice.

Stayed July 2014

We were there after our son's competition downtown. The hotel is very nice and located right next to the convention center. They also have a nice sports bar with tons of sports memorabilia. Great place to eat if you are looking for something close by the convention center.

We have stayed in both the hotel and the Marina, and must say that this is our favorite hotel.
The Lobby is one of the most beautiful you will see.
The Marina has floating docks and excellent dockside assistance/service from Tony the Dock master.

This is the 4th year in a row that our boating group has traveled to the Marriott Waterside Marine for the 4th of July. All the amenities of the marina and hotel are top notch. Everyone is friendly and Tony, the dock master is the best. He is professional, knowledgable, dependable, very friendly and always has a smile. He makes sure all boaters are taken care and explains everything about the property. I would recommend this to everyone.

On vacation staying the night before a cruise (right next to the port, great location). Blown away by the service, every single person has been so helpful and friendly. Bellhop was wonderful, front desk was super professional and had menus for us for some late night pizza. The sports bar in the lobby has great food and we had an awesome waitress.

We stay at the marina several times a year and have always had excellent service. Tony is the dock master and has been for quite a few years. He goes above and beyond to make sure everyone is well taken care of. Highly recommend the marina and hotel and it's amenities whenever you are in Tampa.

Very accommodating hotel and awesome staff. Concierge room was amazing- Joyce Williams was such a joy to be around and helped us with whatever we needed. We had a party of 8 and she made sure we were accommodated at all times.
