I would have rated the Tampa Marriott good instead of average if that rating was available. But I just couldn't quite give the very good rating. It's not that it is a bad hotel. But if it wasn't located along a river in a warm climate, it would have blended in with hundreds of other chain hotels. But there is...

The Tampa Marriott Waterside exhibited extremely clean rooms, attentive employees, and unbeatable access to the Waterfront walkway (restaurants, the convention center, a publix down the road). The restaurants were well-run for a hotel, but nothing special. For an excellent dining experience, walk up the waterfront path approximately 30 minutes to Ulele. Pro tip: Stay here if you plan on leaving...

The hotel was everything you would expect from a Marriott. This Marriott had an enviable location along the river. Our room no. 1629 was perfect and had a spectacular view of the river and looked out toward Jackson's Restaurant. The beds were comfy, the pillows were a little small, but the mattress was just perfect for our 7 week old...

My significant other and I stayed at this hotel for a weekend trip and to explore the aquarium and other Tampa attractions. Location is phenomenal and the front desk staff was great. The room was clean and the views were nice. We had a good stay but it unfortunately ended on a negative note. We tipped valet $5 on top...

Stayed for 2 nights at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel. The location is great, especially for anything happening at the Tampa Convention Center right across the street. The views are also great and the marina and outdoor spaces are very picturesque. The rooms, however, are a different story. I stay at Marriott properties frequently as a Gold Elite member. This...

The food is great and thankfully Robert saved the day as he was spot on knowing we had a Lightning game to catch and were sitting there for a bit of time anxious to order! Try the various local beers and the wings, you will be satisfied. The location is great by boat or by land to the arena and...

This place is awesome. Pool, staff, food, bars, views, room, beds, are fantastic. Only complaint is there is not an fan in the bathroom. At times the elevators wait times were long, but we will surely be going back! Also, Carl in the concierge's lounge was wonderful.

I loved the Marriott and can't wait to go back and take my family. This hotel is right across from the conference center. Right on the board walk for lots of long jogs, walks to everything. Great restaurants near by, including the service in the lobby and hotel restaurant. The people are very nice, helpful and of course the weather...

My daughter and I went to Tampa for her Residency in December. The hotel was decorated festively. The people at the hotel were very nice and accommodating. We had a lack of communication and there was a small issue, but the hotel staff handled themselves professionally and fixed the problem immediately. I left very happy.
