We stayed here on our wedding night and anniversary and it's wonderful. The staff treats you so well, each time we stayed, they've had champagne and chocolate covered strawberries delivered to us. The rooms are clean and modern. The location is nice for heading to the mall for dinner or breakfast. I really love that we stayed close to home...

Monday night - hotel not full enough to warrant opening the club level to its members. Bad policy and unhappy members. A voucher for breakfast does not make up for the evening fare the club level typically offers. Had I known, I would have saved $40 and stayed at the courtyard.

We stayed here for two nights to catch the Cowboys/bucs game before the rest of our vacation. It is a beautiful hotel in a great location near the stadium. We had nothing but great experiences with the staff and the rooms were very comfortable. We experienced no issues with noise or construction on the top floor and the guest lounge...

Our stay was very nice. Just as expected. Staff was very polite and helpful. Elaine in the Club lounge went above and beyond her job duties. She was very pleasant and always made us feel welcome during our stay. She is truly an asset to your Team.

The hotel is nice for a small hotel..... room was clean. The front door area was understaffed but the one and only guy that was working the station was running to cover all the bases. We went inside and was greeted by a very unfriendly Female at the front desk.... no smile, no greeting..... just a how can I help?...

That remodel in the hotel is spectacular. Our last day there they were changing out lamps and mirrors in the rooms and making all kinds of racket in the rooms on the seventh floor where we were staying. It made making conference calls virtually impossible. As usual Elaine in the concierge lounge made us feel right at home. Every time...

I booked online with the Marriott app the day of for a last minute business trip to Tampa. Check-in was easy and I was able to have my bag brought to my room while I met colleagues in the restaurant.

We had the most amazing experience! From when we checked in to the time we left. There customer service was amazing and Elaine treated my kids like her own grandkids each morning at breakfast. The kids also loved swimming in the pool! I myself enjoyed how close the shopping was! It was a great location!
