Fabulous staff and property! Thank you for the outstanding suite/balcony with fantastic views--more than enough space to hold a professional tennis match! Thank you to Joshua for the easy check in, and thank you to the gentleman from Marriott who procured a complimentary Starbucks coffee for me when they were closed. Also, a very special thank you to Joyce Williams,...

Very easy to check in and out. The staff is very friendly and willing to be of service. The rooms are very standard, as most chain rooms are. However, I found the lobby bar and area very cozy for such a wide-open space.

I spent one night there mid week. It is a nice hotel in a good location that is showing its age. All of the staff very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi was good and free for elite members. The location is excellent if you need a hotel before boarding a cruise ship at the Port of Tampa.

This was a very nice hotel, beautiful reception area. We arrived early and they found us a room immediately. We were travelling around Florida and had spent ages choosing each hotel we visited for its location and facilities.

Sometimes, conference hotels would not be my first choice if I had to go back, but if I was ever in Tampa again, I would book this hotel. The location was perfect for a morning or evening walk. The hotel is right on the Tampa River Walk. There was great outdoor dining within a 2 minute walk. A grocery store...
