The warmth of the staff and the outdoors, the excellent service and food quality, and a convenient location helped to make our convention of 300 attendees a success. Carl in the Concierge Lounge took care of my Board members and their spouses (except when the Lounge was closed on the weekend); the Concierge (Fay) and Front Desk Manager (Robert) helped me resolve an issue with a local vendor; Aleksandra in Convention Services could not have taken better care of us; and every person we came in contact with--from A-V to Banquests to room set ups to food outlets--were the best. The Pastry chef gets a special shout out for the amazing mini-dessert samplers.
The guest and meeting rooms were comfortable, and the the streetcar and trolley access across the street made it easy to travel to Ybor City and Channelside. Hockey games and events at the Times Forum are just across the street, as well. The $19 breakfast buffet in the Waterside Grill is a great value with a variety of fresh fruit, cooked-to-order on omelets, pastries, coffee/juice, and the usual breakfast items. Champions has good sports bar food and multiple screens for multiple sports events.
This is a true gem in the Marriott collection.
