Nice hotel, I enjoyed the location, it's a short 3-5 minutes walk to the Tampa River Walk and museum, and it's centrally located in the city, A good starting point to go anywhere you want. the hotel was nice and clean. My room was large and spacious with a very comfortable bed, it's always was a pleasure going to sleep in large comfortable and beautiful bed. Flat screen TV, solid wood office desk. I stayed four nights at the Marriot. The breakfast buffet was nice. There is a lovely little swimming pool, and two jacuzzis outside. As usual the gym was a small room, more befitting of a home gym with just the basics, the norm in the hotel industry it seems. Free wifi at a good speed in your room of the main area.
The drawbacks were that the hotel looked a bit understaffed. Friendly service but not too many employees. Almost like a skeleton staff. For instance Room service in the morning takes a very long time for the cleaners to move from room to room. The bar in the main area was closing pretty early too. I would come back in the hotel at around 21:00 -22:00 and it would be closed. The dining area does not offer lunch nor dinner. There is a coffee table book in the main area with a list of the best restaurants in Tampa. If you order a room service meal at night for instance, You have to call a restaurant that works with the hotel situated across the street. They then deliver to your room. their a la carte menus are in every room. It felt strange to order from a restaurant across the road and have your meal come from across the road. I pictured in my mind a guy running from across the street with my food at night, and opted to go out and eat out.
But I did enjoy my stay at the Marriot, it was a quiet and relaxing hotel, there is a laundry room with a washing machine and a dryer. so if you are going to stay for 4 days or more like me, it's convenient to be able to do some laundry on your last day at a very cheap price. There's an iron and board in the rooms.
One thing they didn't have though is a safe. The room was very spacious but no safe. As a result I opted to move around with my most important valuables on me, when going out at night I would just lock them in my luggage. I didn't lose anything. Everything was accounted for when I left. It’s a good hotel.
