“Best Bloody Mary's in Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

As a Tampa resident, I was pleasantly surprised at how "away" from home I felt here. Best location for exploring downtown, channel side and Ybor City. Can take the trolly steps from the hotel.

Pretty bog standard Marriott hotel, close to the only amenities in Tampa, Conference Centre, Ybor City, Channelside and Times Forum.
But why do Marriott still charge for WiFi Access in you room, move into the 21st Century just like other brands in your chain.

Nice facility on the canal, great views. Long walk, short cab, or slow trolly to channelside, ybor and downtown for food. Bar staff in champions were good. Breakfast buffet was good and priced reasonably as hotels go. Most staff were indifferent though. Had to call to get service. $15/day for Internet is stupid. Self park is not as advertised.

This hotel was one block from the Tampa Times Forum and an easy walk to Channelside and other area attractions. Stayed here for the NCAA hockey tournament which was perfect. Clean rooms, nice concierge lounge if an elite member of Marriott and nice staff. Enjoyed time at the bar and talking to others at the hotel. Great views of the channel and Tampa area. Pricey for our weekend. Wouldn't have stayed if not for Marriott points.

Stayed April 2012

Great location and the conference area was very nice as well. My only problem was the key did not always work. I had to angle it a certain way so the door would open.
