“Excellent Downtown location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

I have stayed at this hotel several times. Excellent downtown location. Not the best area for walking at nite, however the hotel is very nice and clean. I found the breakfast to be the best of all the Residence Inn which I have stayed. Incredible choices. One block away is the downtown shuttle bus, so there is no need to take your car. Parking downtown is a premium unless you park at a meter. Hotel staff was very friendly. Business center is small but the Public Library is one block away.

This is the worst Residence in i have ever stayed.
I have stayed in many of them all around the country.
The rooms were dirty, the beds very old with and with an " u "shape. The bath tubs and carpets were stained, but the worst thing is how rude and impolite people from the front desk and how absolutely rude and uneducated the assistant manager is.

We booked the sleep and sail package and stayed the night before our cruise last week. The one thing missing from this hotel is a valet to park your car. The parking lot is across the street, so it isn't difficult to park your car, but the last hotel we stayed at prior to a cruise had a valet and it sure was great to come back from the cruise and have our car waiting on us.
The best thing about this hotel was the rooms that sleep 6. It seems like it is nearly impossible to find hotels that sleep 6. I thought the rooms were very nice.

Thank you for visiting our hotel in Tampa Downtown. You mentioned enjoying our complimentary breakfast with our quick and responsive staff. Thanks for that specific mention which I will forward to my team. You did also mention a preference for the early servicing of your suite which did seem much later than usual. Our front office and housekeeping staff are flexibible in the event that you or any customer had a specific time preference. Please feel free to communicate your specific needs with our receptive staff and we will be happy to accommodate. If I can assist you when visiting our area again, please do not hesitate to contact our team.

Good breakfast, and staff worked steadily to re-fill and make everything available to guests - hotel full. Pleasant outdoor & indoor seating for breakfast. Parking across the street in fenced lot. Comfortable floor plan in 2 BR suite. Quick access to highways and 10 minute drive to Channelside, Aquarium, and Ibor City. Drawback was cleanliness - seems understaffed - room just getting serviced at 5 pm. Smudges on drinking glasses; make-up smears on bathroom door; leftover towels on floor by bed. Needs more cleaning staff & better supervision of cleaning.

Room Tip: 2 bedroom suite overlooking pool was quiet location

On arrival our check in was quick and the reception staff were polite and helpful. I had previously requested a quiet room at the back of the hotel as I had read the rooms on the front were noisy. I was given a room at the front of the hotel. As our stay was just one night I did not ask for a room change. The room was OK - just as it was advertised. However, the free breakfast was terrible - I hate plastic food, cutlery and plates. The advertised free shuttle to the port was oversubscribed and only started at 11am - this information is not given on the website or volunteered by reception staff. We were given the impression we could just ask for the shuttle at 10am and this would be fine. Not the case - we had to get a taxi. A disappointing stay. Next visit to Tampa will not be at this hotel. The breakfast and shuttle service let the hotel down.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel as these are quieter - the road outside the hotel is very bu...

A group of friends stayed here during a conference we were attending, did not want to spend a ton on accommodations, and this was just what we needed. A clean place to crash, with a nice kitchen, great view of the city and a yummy breakfast buffet in the morning! The hotel had a free shuttle service to the Tampa Convention Center, but since the weather was so nice, we walked most of the time. It was a mere 20-minute walk between the Marriot and the Convention Center, so we got our exercie, fresh air and vitamin D all in one!

Room Tip: For 2 couples, a 2-bedroom suite would have been ideal, but they were booked by the time we did our...

We stayed for four nights this last week and were very happy with the service, the room and the overall atmosphere. The added bonus was the food served at happy hour which was good enough that one did not feel they had to eat out.
