We stayed here for one night before a cruise. The location is great. There are places to go a see all within walking distance or a short trolley ride. The river walk is great. A lot of activity there. As far as the hotel itself the rooms are well appointed. The beds great for sleeping, and the common areas lively....

I admit, I was hesitant because of the price and past reviews of elevator problems, "forgetting" room service orders, etc. I am proud to say that my expectations for my two nights were not meet, they were exceeded! All the staff I encountered were super friendly. Christina at the front desk on both nights was excellent! My girlfriend was feeling...

As a local to Tampa, I anticipated a unique experience to stay at the Marriott Waterside for a week during a industry convention. As a Gold member I usually get acknowledged upon check in. I think because of issues with my room and adjoining meeting suite, the check in experience was less than I usually get and have come to...

I used to not be a fan of Marriott. However, second chances should be welcomed. This property blew me away. Now Downtown Tampa is not my favorite place on earth but this is the gem in the heart of town. Rooms are modest but rates are in the 100's which is good. Within walking distance to nearly everything.

The hotel was fine and as expected, but the highlight was being able to eat on the outside deck for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in March. It was handily located to the convention center (easy walk) and a few other restaurants as well as the river walk,. No need to be downtown--everything I needed was close by.

My family hasn't stayed at this hotel for a few years and when we came back it was better than ever. The hotel looked great. The service was impeccable!. I want to mention a few special employees who made my stay memorable. Jack, from the pool bar, was on top of his game. He always went out of his way...

He personally helped me dig through hundreds of towels from the pool looking for my phone. Incredibly thoughtful Also the bellman Manny Garcia, very helpful The young man cooking at...

I am very disappointed in the service we received at this hotel. And shocked. I've stayed here before and never had an issue. This time was a disaster. I did not get the room which was requested. The valet area was a nightmare I almost got hit twice. The elevators were under construction and renovation which is good because they...

I am a loyal Marriott rewards member and I have stayed here before on business but I wanted my husband to experience this area when we were on vacation. Was disappointed when we checked in that they didn't have a room with a balcony and view blocked for me because I called about a week before checkin and was assured...

Room was very small, not cleaned completely each day, left dirty coffee cups and coffee service not refreshed. Is very conveniently located just outside of trolley that you can take just about anywhere for a few bucks. Walking distance to the convention center. Hotel restaurant and bar very expensive. Elevators run slow and they had a few shut down during...
