My boyfriend's company is working at the convention center for the week. I decided to tag along for part of the stay, to have a little mini vacation. The property is beautiful. The location is perfect. It is located right across the street from the Tampa Convention Center. It is also right on the Riverwalk. Our room overlooks the city,...

My husband and I were at the Marriott Waterfront for a conference. On our first day we were wanting to catch a late lunch outside however, the bar was having an outside private party. That's when one of the managers of the waterside grill, (Kelsie) asked if she could help us...we told her we were hoping of a late outdoor...

Get a waterview Then add comfort and quiet and courteous staff. Oh and did I say waterview? Stayed on 20th floor for a business meeting and loved my stay. Took an afternoon to drive to the beach which is a short distance from hotel.

I am really disappointed in this hotel. I paid close to $300 per night and there was a high school conference in the hotel. That's not the problem but the hotel knew they could possibly be disruptive and did not put them on their own floors. I got zero sleep due to slamming doors, screaming in the hallway, loud noise....

Had a wonderful stay. The Sports Bar in particular was great. The 'fancy' restaurant was closed so we wet to the sports bar. But we didn't want hamburgers. So Zach G. was extremely helpful - he talked to the chef and arranged for us to eat in the sports bar but be able to order anything off the other menu!...

I only have one complaint, but it is one that will keep me from ever considering this hotel again. The walls are extremely thin, and I had one of the worst nights I've ever had in a hotel because of it. The guests in the adjacent room weren't even to blame, you could tell they were speaking at a normal...

We stayed just one night at the end of our vacation at the Waterside Hotel and Marina. Everyone was very pleasant from the valet, bell desk and front desk. We arrived earlier than planned and were still able to check in early to the type of room I had requested. We requested a higher floor with a water view. It...

Two staff members in particular stand out. I had requested a Wake Up Call and a secondary one the night before but did not hear either and awoke to someone pounding on my door. I looked through the peephole and could see that it was a woman staff member, so I opened the door. She said that when I did...

This was my second stay at this Marriott. Although the property is very nice and right on the River Walk, the pool was closed. Not closed for a few days, closed till the end of April. We were there with a convention and probably this was not disclosed or planned at the time the convention was planned and booked there....

Everything about this property is great. I love the rooms, the restaurant bars, the fitness center, and the outdoor areas near the pier. The friendliness of the staff is first rate, particularly the concierge lounge where Carl Fuller Jr is one of the nicest employees I have ever encountered.
