“Beautiful hotel, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Hotel is VALET only, no self parking $24. If you need valet help, find Michael he's great!
FRONT DESK: Great staff, quick check in. Jacob is very helpful.
POOL: Rooftop of the 3rd floor. Busy, but not crowded. Plenty of seating, not much shade. 1 pool server=slow service. Good luck getting the check. Jim the pool attendant is awesome!
BELL Services: Very attentive
The overnight "AT YOUR SERVICE" staff is quick and efficient! Roll away beds, no charge.
RESTAURANTS: Very tasty breakfast, Starbucks coffee shop too!
LOCATION: Great area to walk around, cruise ships out back, playground on river walk. Next to the convention center. $16 cab ride to Steinbrenner Field.
ROOM: Clean and comfortable bedding, only 2 towels in bath though. Call ahead for more.
NOISE: There was a late night wedding but noise could not be heard in the room.

Would love to stay again.

Staying at this hotel was a special treat. The sleeping rooms were large and the views were spectacular. The meeting space was convenient and the food was great. The concierge room was on the 24th floor and had an outside sitting area. And the roof top swimming pool was great. I'd go back here anytime!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that overlooks Harbor Island or Downtown

The excellence was received from the moment I pulled up. The valet staff greeting with a welcome smile, at the time of check in, received an upgraded room, visited the concierge lounge and Carl Fuller Jr., extended a heartfelt sense of service above and beyond. I can't wait to return and experience it all over again, thank you Marriott.

Green Features: Simply put, awesome, friendly environment, the waterside location along with the river walk added to the home like experience of which one can call home away from home. Rather home sweet home is more like it.

I travel 2-3 nights a week and I have to compliment Carl Fuller Jr. on his breakfast service.The food was excellent but the place was immaculate and his service superior to all the other concierge levels I have stayed at. Carl takes full pride in his work and it shows. I will be back to this hotel every time I am in Tampa.

We stayed at the Marriott in Tampa on the concierge floor and received exceptional service. The concierge lounge was phenomenal and included breakfast, refreshments, etc. The best part was that the service was wonderful! Thanks to Carl Fuller for making our experience at the Marriott a pleasurable one! Oh, and the whole hotel is VERY clean, which is a big plus in my book. My family and I will definitely be staying here again!

Just got back from Tampa and usually don't post reviews. But Carl Fuller Jr. up in the concierge lounge provided excellent service and started my day off with a smile. He was the perfect combination of attentiveness and privacy. Go say hi to him if you get the chance.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days and 4 nights in July and had a good experience. Our room was clean and beds were very comfortable. The staff was very accommodating and provided a roll a way bed for our grandson upon request. We ate at the sports bar restaurant in this hotel when we checked in and the food and service were very good. The valet runners were quick and very nice when retrieving our vehicle when we went out of the hotel. We enjoyed walking along the water front and this location was convenient to reach the highways to visit the local attractions. The only negative was that we had to call and ask for towels as there were 3 people in our room and the maid would often only leave 2 towels and it took a long time to get the towels that we requested.
