While I generally like Marriott properties, this one has some issues. I'm guessing it's an older hotel because most of the newer properties have storage or vending next to the elevator shafts. Not the Tampa Marriott Waterside. There are rooms right next to the elevators, and the guests in those rooms get to listen to the elevators run up and down all day and night.
In fairness, when my wife called and complained, mgt offered to move us to a different room. We had already unpacked and were tired from our travelling so we decided to give it a day. We were there for three nights, and so busy each day, that by the time we got back to our room, we just crashed.
My only other gripe is that housekeeping is stingy with the towels. There were four of us in our room, and they kept leaving two bath towels. We had to call and complain every day for two more towels.
Overall, the hotel is okay, but if you're staying here, make sure you ask if you are next to the elevators.
