For those who are Marriott Gold members (or higher), the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel has a free breakfast at the Concierge Lounge on the 14th floor. The hot meal part of the breakfast changes daily; fruits, breads, juices, cereals are a constant each day. The lounge assistants are really great in sharing a smile and taking care of each patron.

I have been staying at this property for many years as it has a great location, nice rooms with a great view of the water and marina.

Carl, the Concierge in the club room is always friendly and nice. Takes care of everything and the food is good for breakfast.

Room Tip: I always ask for a high room away from the ice machine and elevators on the waterside.

So driving from Ga. To Marco island, we decided to stay overnight here. It was a very good choice. The hotel was swarmed with conventioneers. It still was a very nice experience. We had a room on a high floor with a balcony overlooking the water. The room was very nice and so was the view. The hotel is very centrally located if staying in Tampa is your thing. Walking to restaurants is easy. We did not use the hotel bars or restaurants or the spa, although they all looked nice. We did walk to Jackson's across the bridge and hada nice dinner on the river. Our room was clean and comfortable. We ordered room service the next morning before departing. Usually the concierge level is what I do and they did have a very nice one But it was very crowded with convention people. Room service was very good. We had it set up on the patio and enjoyed the views. All in all this was a nice hotel, crowded but big enough to handle it. Clean and convenient . Centrally located in the heart of the city but easy enough to get to if you are traveling through like I was.

Big hotel staffing, bright entry way with room to move and areas to meet make the lobby a very practical welcome to the business traveler or family group. I appreciate the openness of the new marriott designs, libation and snack availability, and tables to sit and talk in a friendly and fun atmosphere. Staff is friendly and helpful, and the rooms are larger than expected for the busy Florida area. Comfortable bedding, lots,of towels in The bathroom, and clean, crisp bedding made for a great sleep, and friendly feel for the room. Many newspapers to choose from in The morning by the desk, and easy to use, fast elevators made this a great, albeit short stay. The view of the large pool,and not tub was welcome from my window, especially because the inland waterway was just beyond the pool and the area was lit with competing nearby hotels. Location was fine for the business meeting on property, rooms were large, comfortable, and staff well trained to make the events work professionally. The exercise room was large and well equipped for aerobics and free weights.

Room Tip: Ask for water view when possible

Fantastic property and hotel. Standard Marriott amenities; and excellent staff one expects from a Marriott property. Steven at the front desk gets special acknowledgement here: very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. we did not use the on-property dining options, but they appeared to be a great option. This is a great property, and we will stay again.
