Very cordial and helpful Marriott staff.
The evening valet personnel - not Marriott staff- were rude and not customer oriented.
Water view rooms are nice as well as city views - especially with a balcony.
Not sure what the smoking policy is - but guests do smoke on the balcony and can be annoying if you are not a smoker.
Rooms are nice size and showing their age.
Breakfast buffet was nice with many choices - did not have lunch or dinner in hotel.
Convenient to trolley for viewing Tampa and nearby Ybor City.
