This Marriott is in a great location next to the Convention Center. I had a waterside view which was very nice, The rooms are that of an older property, but very well maintained.

Paid an exorbitant price to stay here because it's just across the parking lot from the Amalie Arena and the Stevie Nicks concert we were attending. (The last time we went to Amalie, it took us an hour to go a few blocks, both coming and going, so we wanted to be close.) But the big price tag came with...

While browsing in the gift shop for cigars had a wonderful conversation with Antoinette. She was professional, charming and very helpful. She pointed me in the right direction and made sure I had everything I needed. She made my day!

As I was visiting this hotel, I had the opportunity to visit the Champions restaurant on site. Our Waiter Zach was amazing and he was very attentive to our table. This restaurant has great food and is definitely a spot to visit. Don't forget to see if you can sit in Zach's section.

I was here for one night only. Quite frustrating to be a platinum member and stand there, waiting for someone to help. Especially when I watched (her name withheld) walk out, look at the que, and turn around and go back in. I finally said to someone in the lobby area, please get some help. A minute after that, done....

Just be careful if you make your reservation on line, especially if you care about the size of the bed. This trip we received the king size bed that we requested. And I think we got a room upgrade because our original requested room/bed was not ready when we arrived. If you have the extra $$ you should should try...
