“ZAC BROWN BAND - FLORIDA FAIRGROUNDS”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This was a fun weekend filled with music and food. After looking for a place close to the fairgrounds, we found this residence in. While the room was a little small, the staff made up for it with such good service and friendly attitudes. A great place if you need somewhere quite but close to live events.

Room Tip: 3rd level doesn't have anyone above you so the rooms are quite.

Dear Gregory T,
Thank you for choosing to stay at the Residence Inn by Marriott Sabal Park during your visit to see the Zac Brown Band at the nearby Live Nation Amphitheatre. Our location is definitely a quiet spot with good service near the action of the Florida Fairgrounds. I am sorry you found your room a little small; at 500 square feet our standard suites are more spacious than a normal hotel room. Next time you visit be sure to check out the two-bedroom suite; at 900 square feet it would be roomier for you. We look forward to seeing you again whenever you are back to enjoy an awesome concert.
Sincerely,
Suzanne Salmon

I stayed at this newly renovated Residence Inn by Marriott since I had business in the neighborhood and just picked it online. From the time I checked in to the time I checked out 2 days later I was treated better than I have ever been treated in years ANYWHERE. I checked in early in the morning, having asked for an early check in, and only had to wait a short time for my room to be ready (we had been warned it may not be possible depending on how many folks were checking out). The man at the front desk was so kind and let me know that they were celebrating their grand reopening after the renovation and there were festivities that evening. My room was very nice and spacious and beautifully decorated with the renovations. The bathroom sink area was well lit, which is very difficult to find in a hotel these days. The shower was nice and strong. The room was spotless as well. I went to the reception that evening and everyone there from the hotel to the company that owned it, the vendors and other guests were extremely nice and welcoming and the complimentary wine and martinis as well as the food was excellent.

I frequently stay at hotels and Marriott is my chain of preference but this was, hands down, the nicest, cleanest, most pleasant experience yet to spend a couple days on business. The staff at the hotel is proud of the renovation and went out of thier way to assist in any way they could.

Room Tip: The location is a bit out of the way for vacationers but for business or long term stay it would be...

Recently updated public space and suites are very nice. Very comfortable surroundings. All of the staff are friendly and helpful and made a positive statement about the hotel. Cudos to Roger at the desk. Breakfast and one evening meal we had were very good. Wife and I spent 5 nights and would go back again.

Wasn't certain of the area in Tampa...we wanted the Hard Rock Casino, but they were sold out! We are Marriott reward members so I chose to look in that direction...this place is 5 min. from Casino, quiet and clean. The staff was very friendly and the recent remodeling was great. Wish I had taken photo of lobby and breakfast area. I did take photos of room. I was anxious about this stay for my husband's birthday...what a relief! We so enjoyed this stay!

We stayed here for two nights. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Justin at the front desk was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The pool was great also. They have a fire pit out by the pool and that was pretty neat too. The breakfast was stocked and lots to eat!

Dear Anita S,
I am delighted that you got to experience our newly renovated hotel and found the staff friendly and helpful. In addition to renovating all guest rooms and public areas, we added an upgraded outdoor experience that includes a beautiful fire pit and a built in Viking grill. The gym now has new free weights and Life Fitness cardio machines. The complimentary breakfast and social area has been expanded so the area is more comfortable with a variety of seating options. Thank you for submitting your positive comments on the Residence Inn Sabal Park. I hope you will be back to see us again soon.
