The hotel was nice. It was very large and the elevators were separated from floors 1-10 and then 10 and up, which was odd and confusing. The rooms were nice and housekeeping was excellent. The room had a wine cooler but not a mini fridge, which was strange. Our room had a balcony but the door was jammed and we...

To me the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel was a major disappointment. This is not a cheap hotel. It's a high end hotel, but I definitely get better service from some of the cheaper hotels that I stay in from time to time. First issue I had was with the room. I was at the Waterside hotel on a business trip...

This place was amazing. From the moment you pull onto the property. The service, the level of care, the smells, the rooms...everything was spectacular. BUT when we went to the pool the next day, there were obviously some women that were "working" the male crowd. At first it was a little weird but then it got really weird with one...

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful holiday at the Marriott Waterside in February 2017. We chose the hotel because of its great location across the street from Amalie Arena since we planned to attend a hockey game one of the nights we were in town, but soon discovered that the location was much more than simply next door to...

Our first morning was greeted by a fantastic experience in the Concierge lounge with Carl Fuller, JR taking great care of us at breakfast. The view from the balcony made the morning dining even that much better.

Just like other Marriott Hotels all over the world, it is quite comfortable and clean. However, I think the best thing about this hotel is its location. It is just across the Convention Center of Tampa (where I came to attend meetings) and next to the Riverwalk. There are many restaurants in this area. Walking along the Riverwalk, it also...

I stayed at the Marriott Waterside for the Gasparilla Distance Classic race weekend. There were three of us staying in the room. The facilities were very nice and clean, the view was wonderful and the Concierge Lounge was very well done. Carl F, Jr. took great care of us during our four day stay in the Lounge. He was a...

Stayed for a few days whilst attending a conference. Nice building with friendly efficient staff. Room is ok but no wow. Both bars are good...and the Grill is worth trying... Room was quiet and location great for the conference along with being central for entertainment in the evening.

We had an enjoyable three night stay to attend a wedding. The hotel is located on the Riverwalk, so it's easy to walk out the back of the hotel and get some exercise and enjoy the scenery. The hotel was extremely busy, with multiple conferences, weddings, and, even a marathon, taking place during our stay. The best thing about the...

I attended a conference at the hotel from February 26- March 2, 2017. Let me just say that I have stayed in Marriott's for the past 40 years because of their superb rooms and friendly, accommodating staff. Not so at this hotel. The room had a lovely view of the water, but, there was no small refrigerator, the toilet was...

“Best views are obviously on the waterside. Lower floors are better if you want to skip the elevator wait and use the stairs.”
