Am a Marriott loyalist just finishing up a 4 night stay here for the AIRS Conf, and blessed to have stayed on the 24th Floor Concierge Level. Loved my room service by Dee Dee and all the lovely Concierge Lounge service by Carl and Joyce. Service like this always keeps me both coming back and recommending! Thanks for being "home...

Traveling with my son for a concert,... perfect location for events at the arena. Dining options and the river are a skip away. The hotel is consistently super-clean, nicely appointed, great balconies, superior personnel with helpful, professional and upbeat personalities. The only (quite minor) opportunity for improvement would be swifter elevator access at peak times. We do stay here often,...

This Marriott is beautiful but that is about it. It took over 2 hours for our room to be ready and we cut our trip short (left at 1:30AM) due to disruptive guests and non attentive staff members. This was our second stay at this hotel and the first time presented a few of the same problems. Unfortunately, we will...

Lisa and the rest of the staff in the concierge lounge are fantastic! They are kind and attentive, ensuring you have a wonderful experience. Breakfast and happy hour were lovely! It's absolutely worth the upgrade to have access to the lounge.

Beautiful view overlooking bay! Comfortable large rooms. Great pool to relax in. Gold card members have excellent concierge room for breakfast and appetizers/desserts in the evening. Lisa took care of us in the evening and Carl was present at breakfast in the concierge lounge, both very friendly, courteous, and efficient staff.

I was the best man at a wedding at the Tampa Marriott Waterside this past weekend and was there for a total of 6 days. The hotel is FANTASTIC as the rooms were large and very clean. The hotel has a very attentive staff and I want to highlight one person in particular as being awesome! Nichole, the bartender downstairs...

Had a wonderful stay. Second time at this hotel and would stay over and over again. Fabulous customer service from valet, bell desk, front desk, bar staff, pool staff, etc. Back patio is amazing and comfortable. Recommend booking online using their app, can check in using app, then at front desk can get automatic key at electronic kiosk. High floors...

I recently was in a bridal party that had a BLAST at the Marriott. On our first night there, we interacted Nichole in the lobby bar. She was engaging (and PS- did well to check my ID) and offered a welcoming vibe to the bar. The following evening, Nichole was our bartender at the wedding. She recognized us from the...

Stayed here for a wedding and had the best experience ever. I've never had such a great bartender as Nichole. She made the best drinks, remembered all of our names, was super friendly and basically just killed it all night long! I will be back just for the bar and my new all time favorite bartender!

We had a great room with a small balcony overlooking downtown. The room was real nice and the beds comfortable. Public areas were beautiful. Special thanks to Horace for great service during check in. Valet parking is available for $28, but we self-parked in the garage across the street for about half that.
