Justine went above & beyond to accommodate us and created a great experience. She knew we wanted to enjoy drinks outside despite the area being used for a private event. She found another area for us that was perfect, was extremely attentive, we were able to enjoy ourselves as she made taxi arrangements and brought me to the valet when...

At around 11:30pm on a Saturday night I heard a loud jackhammering/construction sound outside my window. It has become an incessant sound that does not diminish with time. I took a look outside to see 3 men absailing with a powerwasher down the front of the building not far from my balcony. I called the front desk to complain and...

I came in off a red eye and really just wanted a great breakfast. I decided to eat at the hotel restaurant I believe its called Waterside Grill. Not only was the food excellent but the service I received was beyond perfect. Lacey demonstrated exactly what customer service should be and she is a asset to this company. Thank you...

Beautiful hotel. It's right on the riverwalk so it's possible to walk to local restaurants. The gym has free weights and machines. The executive lounge is nicely stocked with a beautiful water view off of the balcony.

Love the Marriott and love it here in Tampa. Beautiful area by water, clean yet quiet. Go for a stroll, take the streetcar to Ybor. Whatever your fancy, it's here. The balcony room was a surprise upgrade. Thank you!

Stayed here right after New Year's for one night. There was a college game going on which you could clearly notice as soon as you walked into the lobby. No issues with that and didn't experience any noise or rowdiness. Seemed like a mature crowd which was nice. Hotel has a spacious patio area along with easy access to the...

My husband and I were married at this hotel almost 10 years ago, so when we planned to return for a night without our kids I was ecstatic. The last time we had been here the hotel was perfect--from the friendly staff to the beautiful, new rooms. Unfortunately we visited during a busy weekend (there was a college bowl game...

In preparation for a New Year's cruise out of Tampa, we stayed at the Marriott Waterside. It's a great location, just a quick cab ride from the cruise terminal, and is easily walkable if you don't have multiple bags. The lobby is lovely and the views from the room were great. The room wasn't as well appointed as we expected...
