We were attending a concert at Amalie Arena Friday night and wanted to be close to the venue. This Marriott was perfect since the arena is literally across the street. The hotel was packed for the concert and really didn't handle the surge well. Getting a meal or drink was a very lengthy process. They need to think about adding...

Very convenient if attending events at convention center or the arena downtown Tampa. Lobby bar has great scent before and after events at the arena down town. Not much to do down town Tampa so if you don't have something bringing you down town town prob not best spot.

Service was excellent, from the time we pulled up in our car, to the time we checked out and valet delivered car. Staff was very friendly, wifi great and breakfast buffet was excellent. Had a vast selection to satisfy your gastronomy cravings. Would definitely stay here again.

We were there on Christmas Day till the 28th. We left for a family cruise on the 28th & several families stayed at this Marriott till departure. The rooms and balcony were very nice. Outside seating and river walk (which is next to outside seating) were great. Front counter and cleaning staff were all very friendly and helpful. Beautiful hotel,...

The hotel is a nice one but I attended a training course here when I arrived I was told the garage was closed and would have to use velvet parking $18. This was a problem of the course not the hotel, if you have something to eat or drink then they stamp your velet card and you only pay $9.

Be careful if you reserve on line - be sure to state your bed preference. We thought we reserved a waterside view king room, but they stated that the reservation did not specify a bed preference. We had to choose between double beds with the view or king bed with no view. Very disappointing. We chose the king bed. The...

Our room on the 10th floor with balcony offered a great view looking out at Harbour Island, the marina, Davis Island, and Tampa Bay. We could see the boats and cruise ships. The room was comfortable with plenty of power outlets and a nice sized work desk. The breakfast buffet on the lobby level is awesome, I think in the...

I had a great stay at this Marriott for a 2-day business trip. Marriott really knows how to treat its Gold Rewards members as I was given access to their concierge lounge. I was treated to comped appetizers and a cash honor bar with top notch service. The location is excellent for the convention center or downtown, but did not...

The staff is nearly the same as last year, and they remembered me with greetings when I arrived. I was treated with fond respect and courtesy, and they really made me feel welcomed back. The Food was better, the accommodations were their usual superior quality, and my week-long visit was superb. From Carl Fuller Jr. In the Concierge Lounge who...

The hotel and our room were clean but I was very disappointed with the check-in and that there was no notification of the pool being closed for remodeling. We arrived a few hours earlier than the normal check-in time and were given keys to the room. It was never mentioned that we were getting a double instead of the reserved...
