Clearwater Beach Marriott Suites on Sand Key
Ranked #12 of 98 Hotels in Clearwater
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Property is a little older but well maintained. Staff is very accommodating. The view is beautiful but the beach is down the road. They will shuttle you to the beach. The pool is nice with servers for food and drink. The restaurant was excellent and has won many awards.

We enjoyed a wonderful break here with the family. Our rooms overlooked the ocean and we could watch the dolphins.
The food was fantastic and the service was friendly.
The kids loved the pool and the kids club. Also the resident parott brought much amusement on a daily basis.
Some nice local shops & cafe/bars to walk to and across the road the beautiful beach.
We enjoyed some nice drives out to marinas and an outlet shopping mall.

I secured a very reasonable rate to stay at this hotel. In my opinion the regular rates are too high for this property. It is across the street from the gulf beaches but these can easily be reached by walking or shuttle. The pool is nice and the staff is very professional/pleasant. We got here after the spring break rush in March/April which sounds pretty ugly if you happen to be around during that period. Fortunately we missed out. Lots of toddlers in the main pool which is a bit gross knowing they are doing what toddlers do at that age. There is a separate kiddy pool that the hotel does not elect to enforce. The shops and restaurants nearby are great. We drove down the road to eat at Guppy's two nights which was pretty good. The hotel is old but fairly well maintained. I would come back.

Room Tip: Higher up is better.

This was our first trip to the west coast of FL, family of 3 with 7 yr old. Booked a king size bed, arrived and given 2 doubles on the 5th floor. Daniel at front desk quickly changed it to 8th floor and a king size bed, beautiful view overlooking the pool and water. Only thing to remark on would be the carpet and furniture is dated but the beds etc are otherwise up to date and very nice. Most people spend little time in the room anyway so it works well. Everything worked in the room including the two flat screen TVs.

Stayed week of April 22 - no trouble with getting prime seats around the pool as late as 10am... after that it filled quickly. On the weekend it filled at 9am. Air temps were 85 and pool was very comfortable, although late afternoon it got a little chilly. Hot tub was great. They have a little ice cream shop that no one seemed to know about behind the hot tub. Great shakes and ice cream.

Restaurant onsite was Watercolours... very nice dinner but pricey. You can sit out by the water; walk down the boardwalk a few steps for The Columbia or Backwaters or convenient breakfast at Dunkin Donuts or Maggie Mae's. Also a great dinner was had at Island Way Grill by the aquarium.

You can order poolside light food for lunch or snacks and drinks and bill to the room.... The bellboys and concierge very helpful... props to the bellboy Daniel for helping recommend great places... the hotel provides a little shuttle over to Sand Key Park and hang out by the Gulf... they will give you some beach toys to use....

Sand Key Park was very nice... they have cabanas, chairs, umbrellas etc to rent, as well as a food van for your day at the beach....

Best part of stay.... convenience of food/drink/facilities at the pool. Friendliness of staff. Convenience of hopping across Gulf Blvd to the Gulf and back using golf cart shuttle. Weather.

Things we would change... nothing major. If the weather is nice most everything is small stuff.

Tips... find the little ice cream shop tucked in the back by the hot tub. Get to the pool by 10am during the week and 9am on weekends, drop your towel on the chair, and grab breakfast.
Go to the Gulf anytime via the shuttle... they have a phone direct to the hotel from the Park for whenever you want to come back. The Trolley is inexpensive and easy to navigate.

Look for specials for AAA or AARP members.

Room Tip: Higher rooms are probably better... pool views are better. No problems with noise.

My husband was here for a business meeting, so our room had a hefty discount. Otherwise this place is really expensive. However, we loved our room - with a view of the Bay on one side and a balcony on the Gulf side. The room was very clean and the cleaning person was very helpful. Had several meals in the restaurant and in the meeting, the food was always great. Had a massage which was also wonderful. Can't say enough about the place and hope to be there again next year, on business of course.

Room Tip: They have up to 10 floors. We were on 9 with a view of the Bay. Ask for a higher floor.

This is an excellent property with great customer service. The room is well maintained and the balcony overlooking the bay is a great place to watch dolphins. The pool is large and clean with a waterfall, the hot tub is fun, and the wait staff from the tiki bar are very attentive. This hotel offers a lot of amenities, such as a kid's club, wading pool for children, complimentary golf cart ride to Sand Key beach, music in the tiki bar area, and towels for the beach and pool. The trolley to Clearwater Beach and all of the nearby beach communities stops right outside the door and you can get trolley information at the front desk. It is more relaxing to stay at this hotel than in the crowds on Clearwater Beach. This is my second stay at this hotel and I plan on returning whenever I come back the Clearwater Beach, Sand Key area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the air conditioner unit. Rooms overlooking the pool on a high floor are ex...

Great location but an older property that did not meet expectations all around considering the $275/night price tag. Room was clean, but had a musty oder. Hotel itself is on the bay side of the strip, and not on the Gulf coast, so room balconies are overlooking the inlet and the shoreline attracts noisy birds at low tide. Nice pool area with bar and such, but their drinks are pre-mixed mixers - terrible Mai Tai. Service at the pool took over 1/2 hour and our room was not cleaned until after 4pm when we had returned from the days activity and were showering/changing for dinner. Breakfast included but only the "continental" portion. There was a surcharge for the hot items in the same buffet. All in all, disappointing for Marriott.

Room Tip: higher floor
