Stayed here for 5 days at a recent conference. Always impressed with Marriot hotels and services.....yes it is expensive but worth it for the location.
Hotel grounds: good restaurants and lobby area along with bar. Free/fast Wifi in lobby which is nice. Also has an area where you can log on and print out your boarding pass.....very nice indeed. Back patio leads out to the Marina and river walk. A great path to run towards downtown Tampa along harbor drive. Location can't be beat as it's right across the street from the main trolley terminal.
Room: clean and spacious. Nice flat screen TV with HD tv. Internet in room is 14$ per day but can use free wifi in lobby. Had nice patio out back with table and chairs. Bed was comfortable....it really was. Clean sheets and no funk. Bathroom was clean and great water pressure!!
Customer service was good. Would definetely stay again as you can't go wrong with Marriot.
Tips on Tampa:
Have to try the "Laughing Cat" great Itialian restaurant in Ybor district.
There was a Tapa place in the Channel district that was excellent. Can't remember the name.
