The golden gems of this property are Joyce and Lisa in the Concierge Lounge! They work nightly Sunday - Thursday and keep the Lounge in perfect order. They are friendly with greeting guests and really make you feel welcome. Thank you ladies for making my stay even more special!

Stayed here for a night while visiting Tampa and I found the property to just be okay. To start off it is valet parking only for $24 a night which is understandable becuase it is right in downtown. Lobby area was fine. Pool was okay but pool bar was never open. Our rooms were just okay. Really need renovation and... More

If you are attending a conference at the Tampa Convention Center, or a meeting here at the Tampa Marriott Waterside, it's an obviously ideal location. Very beautiful property overall, beautiful setting, and overall very clean and well appointed. For the price and size of this hotel, however, I did expect a little more. From a meeting attendee perspective the conference... More

Took my son up to Tampa to do some fun things for his 3rd birthday and had a great experience at this Marriott! I did not feel that the hotel was worn or aging like other reviews have pointed out. The room was big, and felt & smelled clean. Our city view was beautiful. The staff were all friendly, professional... More

The hotel is located central to the downtown area. There was some construction when I visited in November 2016. Nice heated pool, decent fitness area. Rooms are nice and in good shape. The elevators were undergoing a renovation and were slow.

Good place to stay. Close to many things but quiet. Great service typical of Marriott. Lots of construction made it a bit of challenge by car. Room was nice but worn down. Clean and comfortable so got the job done.

My husband and I needed a hotel near TGH. I thoroughly read Tripadvisor reviews of the top 4 in the vicinity, and then went to each website to evaluate the amenities and deals. I discovered that Marriott and Starwood have merged, so I bothered to combine my memberships, and was then able to look up rates based on my membership... More

Stayed at the Tampa Marriott Waterside for a wedding anniversary long weekend. Pros: Large conference style hotel which equated to a decent price and good room selection. Took advantage of a member deal which included parking and breakfast in the rate. Excellent breakfast buffet and easy in and out valet for the car parking. Large room with great city and... More
