What a place to stay to see anything at the Amalie Center. First it's a very nice hotel- clean, good restaurants and a beautiful view of the riverfront. They have 3 different restaurants, a bar in the lobby and live music playing- very nice. There's a parking charge that's $25 a day and you have to pay for Internet in the room and free in the lobby. It's right next door to Amalie center and that is a great place to see anything.

Room tip: Go higher,my he view is great in all directions

Spent five night late January on business in a double room. Room was very clean and modern, which was the condition of the hotel overall. Back of the hotel has nice outdoor eating area looking over a large water channel that flows into the city. Inside has an American, Italian and general restaurant used for breakfast with Starbucks on the ground floor, food was good in all. The trolly bus stop is opposite the entrance, which takes you downtown or out on the loop passed Channel side and other areas for US$7 daily return. There is a waterside walk at the back of the hotel that takes you downtown or along to to Channel side. Only downside is the lifts can be very slow if you have a large conference based at the hotel. Overall a good solid Marriott experience.

Room tip: High floors Channel Side have best view.

Came in late on a Monday after weather delays out of LGA. Staff was exceptional - everyone from the bellmen through the desk staff to the wait staff at Champions Sports Bar. Was able to get settled, eat, and get to bed promptly. Woke to a delightful breakfast in the concierge lounge under the attention of Carl Fuller. Beautiful views and excellent service. Will definitely return here. In the midst of a hectic winter of travel, it was just what I needed.

Stayed at the Mariott Waterside Tampa during a busy Spring weekend. Traveled to watch the Chicago Blackhawks play the Tampa Bay Lightning in nearby Amalie Arena. Hotel was great, and super convenient to the arena; it's across the street !! I expected with a packed and lively crowd from out of town, that the hotel staff might be a bit on edge, but that wasn't the case. Staff was friendly, helpful and upbeat throughout, from the hustling valets, to check-in with Kathleen, to the (absolutely slammed!!) bar staff, to Albert at the restaurant, all the employees were great. Even the young woman working the gift shop was very sweet and pleasant.
The room was great too. The king bed we had was very comfortable. The pillows were very good. Water view was nice.
The FOOD in the restaurant was good too. Albert suggested we pass on the breakfast menu items and go right for the buffet, which was great. Scrambled eggs were buttery and hot, and I think I ate about a pound of the crisp bacon strips!! They have an omelette station also, but we took a pass. We got seated at about 9:00am, so it wasn't crowded at all, but by 10:00am, as we were leaving, the stampede was starting, so I suggest to get there early for breakfast.
All in all it was a great experience. Well done Mariott. Great job to the management staff also for training and hiring this group.

Room tip: Water view I think is best.

Stayed at this hotel over the weekend for a business conference. Hotel room was fine, but despite coordination with hotel ahead of time re our group's needs, conference room set up was severely lacking--two numbers provided by hotel did not ring and could not handle 1+caller. Unable to connect Mac computer to internet, sandwiches for lunch (also pre-ordered) did not include most of meat, which catering staff CANCELLED without explanation. Worst experience was with parking...at least 10 or 15 cars were packed into valet parking drop off area...no one could move anywhere. On Saturday evening waited *45 min* for car to be brought from valet parking. Very few hotel parking staff were visible trying to organize traffic flow. We will not be back!
