This hotel has a lot going for it. Location is awesome - near the convention center, forum, aquarium, Bayshore Blvd and Channelside. The common areas are really nice - great big lobby with lots of space to hang out and get a drink at the bar or restaurants on site, really nice pool and workout facility. Rooms are pretty typical with fantastic views of the water. Service is also very good at front desk. Overall I really liked this hotel as it was a comfortable place to relax inside the room, out at the pool or in the enormous lobby area.

My only complaint- housekeeping could not keep up with cleaning the pool area or the massive outdoor patios. The pool smelled like stale beer in the morning and had trash all over the place from the night before. Granted, I was at the pool at 9:00 am, but this mess should be cleaned up every night. Same with the patio space. The tables were dirty, cups on tables and was generally gross until sometime around lunch.

Other than those relatively minor complaints, I really liked this hotel. When I come back to Tampa, I will stay here again.

On our way to the beach, we stayed one night at the Tampa Marriott Waterside. Valets were quick and efficient, front desk checked us in quickly and the bellman was ready to help us with our bags. Our room was on the 19th floor and had a beautiful waterside view. A wakeboard competition was taking place in the bay, and we could watch it from our room. Despite the hotel being full with a conference, the noise level was minimal from our room. The elevators and pool were a different story. We did witness kids from the conference attendees banging on the piano and quickly corrected by Marriott staff. Not sure the kids listened, but we do appreciate the staff's willingness to create a nice environment for all of its guests.

Since my husband is a Marriott Elite, we got a free continental breakfast in the hotel restaurant. The buffet was sufficient and had bagels, pastries, fruit, cereal, and cold meats. There was an up charge for the full buffet (omelets, waffles, breakfast meats, etc) for $8.95. Our waitress was friendly and efficient.

We enjoyed the stay despite the busy, loud, and active conference that consumed the hotel.

My husband & I checked in around 6:00pm on July 4th. I chose this property because of the location-close to the aquarium which we were visiting. The hotel was very nice-clean room & good view. At this time, it was very busy. We felt rushed getting out of the car so it could be valeted & also had long waits for an elevator. Check-in was quick & easy. One tip-get everything out of your car because after they park it (a lot across the street) you are not allowed to access it unless they bring it over to the hotel, which of course means more tipping. This hotel is convenient but expensive & crowded. Surprisingly though, the room was very quiet & we got a good night's sleep.

This Hotel is one of the best location in Tampa, Florida. The services and Staff was superior, from getting in the entrace to the room, we had excellent services. We visited their sport bar, and the food and services was superior.

Room Tip: room that are facing the river and the bay.

We were on vacay to Sanibel, and we stopped in to the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina for the night. It had been pouring rain, and we didn't arrive until 10PM. The valets were friendly, and check-in went smoothly. Our room was nice, but the towels were damp when we needed to use them so we called for more. The next batch were dirty, and some had brown stains on them. We called for another set in the morning, but it took awhile to get them so we ended up using the one clean one from the other night. We did have the breakfast buffet, and it was good. It was pricey, but what we expected and everyone enjoyed it. The view of the marina was beautiful, and we did stroll outside at the waterfront. My husband and I loved the location and marina, but cleanliness was an issue...
The staff were all very friendly from check-in to check-out!
