This hotel has everything you would expect and more. The staff went over and above to make sure we were well taken care of. From the valet to the desk clerks to the gentleman collecting pool towels ~ everyone was friendly and appreciative. Champions Bar was a lot of fun with great food, cold beer and a huge TV for the game. The couples massage was a great way to top off a wonderful weekend. Can't wait for another Sunday Funday!

I stayed at this hotel back in May 20, 2012. This is a really beautiful hotel. As you walk in it just takes your breath away. Makes you fell like a millionaire. They have great customer service. The girl back near the gym was really nices and helpful. The girl out side by the pool area at the bar was also nices and helpful. Great large gym and big pools. Rooms are really nices.

We stayed a while back, but I remember it like it was yesterday. We really enjoyed our rooms, they were clean, spacious, and depending on what time of the week you go, not too expensive. It's located right across the street from the Arena, so if there's an event across the street that you are attending, this is the closest hotel to there. It also has a nice view of downtown Tampa from it's front entrance. Highly recommend this hotel!

The hotel has everything you would expect from a full service Marriott property. The front of the house is very well run, and there were always plenty of staff during busy periods to ensure efficient service. The valet service is to be especially commended; the crew is friendly, gives great advice (dining, directions, etc.) and very prompt service in 100+ degree heat. The sports-bar/restaurant is not only convenient, it turns out reasonably priced and good tasting food as well. The room was well maintained, and the housekeeping staff kept it cleaned and delivered all requests with a smile. The location can't be beat, and is across from the Convention Center and the Times Forum. Both business and family friendly.

Went there in early July for the Moose International Convention. The first time I had ever stayed at this location and WOW what a place. Excellent location, Superb staff and a wonderful view of the city of Tampa. Very easy access in & out except when an event is happening next door at Times Forum, then it gets pretty crazy because a lot of the concert or event goers also use the valet services from the Marriott.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the upper floors for a beautiful view.

I was on a business trip for 3 days. The hotel was very clean, in a nice location. Walking distance to the Forum, and the conventions center. There seemed to be a few things to do in the area. I think this is a great place for a business trip, but not for a family vacation if you are looking to do "Florida" sort of things for activites.

No problems with staff, food, or accomidations. The beds were outstanding.

The water front view was pretty cool, and actually the city view was not that bad either.

Overall... very nice place to stay, in a very nice safe part of town.

Room Tip: request a room, waterside, as high as you can get. The view will be the best.

Spent three nights at the hotel in August and were very pleased with everything except the $15 per day in-room wifi, which a pet peeve of mine. The rooms were nice, clean, quiet, and provided a great view of the water. The restaurant, bar, and cafe at the hotel were all good if you plan to stay in. The hotel is within walking distance of the Florida Aquarium, the history center, and the river walk.

Room Tip: Get a waterside room for the view.
