We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this hotel. We had an issue at check-in that was professionally handled and to our satisfaction. Dorcas John-Baptiste did a great job in resolving our issues and make things better with perks and by placing us in a great room. All of the staff put service and the customer first. The concierge level food... More

Conveniently located by convention center. Rooms are nice, ask for waterside with balcony. Room has a box to cool items to 50 degrees - very odd, could easily be replaced by small refrigerators. Elevator service was very slow, I'm sure it had to do with repair work occurring though. Pool is gorgeous although outside service was not customer friendly. Staff... More

Some hotels are worth staying at. Some hotels take steps to show their customers that their business and the business that they bring through hosting meetings at their venue is valued. This hotel is not one of those hotels. From the very top GM it is clear that this hotel cares only about their bottom line and squeezing every ounce... More

What can I say? This place was really great. Great beds, nicely appointed room, superlative view of the bay, close proximity to downtown (Amalie Arena across the street and Convention Center a short walk as well as a mooring across the street). The breakfast buffet had great food - pricey but a nice meal. Service was impeccable. Excellent all of... More

Stayed on the concierge floor. In the concierge lounge, Lisa was extremely pleasant and so very helpful offering suggestions for things to experience while in Tampa. Joyce was also professional and anxious to have us be as comfortable as possible during our stay. My question to the hotel is why upcharge for the concierge floor on weekends when the lounge...

Stayed at Tampa Marriott Waterside while attending business conference at Tampa Convention Center. Clean, cozy rooms. Excellent hospitality service from the front desk to the gift shop. Delicious and affordable food - from big screens in Champions to gorgeous outdoor waterfront views at the Waterside Grill. Very pleased with my stay, my home away from home.

I like this hotel! It's location is perfect and the upkeep of the hotel is decent. I was here for a couple nights celebrating my friend's 40th and upon check in I received a room on the floor requested and even a balcony water view at no additional costs. I enjoyed the sports bar in the lobby. The food/ portion... More

Traveled to Tampa Bay on business and stayed at the Marriott Waterside Hotel. Hotel is located right off the bay, within a few steps from Amalie Arena and Convention Center. Staff was very professional and friendly. Hotel has a restaurants, bar (lobby and pool side), and Starbucks. Fitness room and pool were great. The rooms were very clean and comfy.
