This hotel was clean and had staff who went the extra mile every time. The restaurants were good and there was plenty of places to walk to from the hotel. The meeting rooms were quiet and easy to get to. The meeting food was decent. Not great but not bad either. I think this is an excellent location for a...

You will generally get everything you expect when visiting this Marriott. Service levels are high, the rooms are like any other marriott. The hotel is situated right on a waterway and high floors you can see the ocean/bay. The hotel sits on the trolley line so this is convenient. The restaurant service was little slow. One complaint would be the...

My mother went to dine at Le MERIDIEN Tampa with her sister while on a work trip. I called the hotel and requested they arrange a small personalized dessert to know that I was sending my love. The F&B Director and all involved were so generous to share their signature eclairs and make special arrangements for a personal and customized...

Stayed for 5 nights, great view from the 25th floor, lovely pool, restaurant food was great. Had Breakfast & Dinner several times. The wait staff and hotel folks were great. Say hi to Omar @Restaurant! Also enjoyed riding the Downtowner (free shuttle service) a few blocks away. Would have walked had it not rained on the last night there.

This hotel is located at the marina which gives you a nice view and nice areas to stroll around in. The hotel room wasn’t at its best and a little bit worn down, but still ok. The service level at the breakfast in the restaurant was impeccable, warm and very personal and welcoming. Everything from the very nice egg/pancake chef...

I just wanted to take a moment and speak of a wonderful employee during my stay. Mr. Carl Fuller Jr provided great hospitality and service to my mother and I during breakfast. He was attentive and thoughtful. Thank you Mr. Fuller for the great service. :) Tammy H. Virginia

Rooms were clean and comfortable, although somewhat dated. The staff was friendly and the lobby/bar area was packed with football fans. I'm not sure what this hotel is like during a normal period of time, but it's location is perfect; walk to the riverwalk, convention center, etc. There is definitely a lot to see and do within walking distance. The...

If you want to be in convention center hell and want to be jerked around at check in, this is your place. Arrived at 2:45 and room not ready. Promised a 4 p.m. check-I'm and came back at 4:15 to be told it would be 6:30 p.m. before room was ready. We got out there and stayed somewhere else. Place...

We have stayed at this location several times. It is walking distance to Amalie Arena, the convention center and Gaspirilla. Also a quick trolley ride to Ybor. Rooms are clean and well kept. Service is excellent. Warning: if you want a room during Gaspirilla book it MANY months in advance.

Loved the visit. Nightly visits to the concierge level were fantastic with Joyce Williams as one of our hostesses. She was so friendly and welcoming every night, as was the staff at the hotel. If you are able to make it to the concierge level, would definitely suggest it. They have tasty little apps (crab cakes and chicken quesadillas personal...
