As part of a Tampa vacation during Tampa Bay Beer Week, I decided to book this hotel as it was convenient to the Huna day event we were attending. Given the amount of people in town, I expected the hotel to be a bit of a mess. For the most part it was but they handled it well. We pulled...

I recently stayed at the Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina while on business travel. Upon arrival I was welcomed in the lobby with refreshments, nice touch after a long day. During check-in I mentioned that I needed a feather free room and the front desk staff changed my room assignment to the "feather free floor". This was the first time...

I recently stayed at the Tampa Marriott Waterside location for the Dusan wedding. I was very upset that I was forced to cash out my $200+ tab in front of the big group of people I was with, since the lobby bar closed down early and I was sent all the way downstairs to champion bar and grill. This was...

I had a procedure scheduled very early in the morning at Tampa General and chose this hotel due to its proximity. Upon arrival, I was very surprised that the valet didn't open my door. At nearly every hotel I've ever stayed that's a fairly standard way of greeting guests. We proceeded to the lobby, which was quite beautiful, and checked...

Nice Marriott with great views. Walking distance to restaurants downtown. Nice rooms and concierge lounge. On the water, so a nice place to have a drink and enjoy the view. Would definitely stay there again!

Great property. Updated furnishings. Nice staff. Restaurant was good with good service levels as well. The Starbucks kiosk is limited to 1pm and no ice tea if you can believe it but across the street at the Embassy suites is a full Starbucks. Book here, not the Westin across the way (unless you get a killer Priceline deal...nope, not even...

We love staying at The Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel when visiting the Tampa area. The Location for Tampa Bay Lightening games or concerts at the Amalie Arena is perfect! Also the Riverwalk attractions are fun ti investigate and explore the area!

We had a family wedding here....wish it had been elsewhere. It took 50 minutes to get our car....missed part of the rehearsal dinner. Very poor customer service.....there was a hockey game going on...fights is the pool....police all over due to unruly guests...not really a safe venue. Why wouldn't you have adequate security when a hockey playoff is going on next...

My client put me here. It's a lovely setting for a city hotel... but suffers from the vagaries of convention and event crowds. I stayed here on a weekend that saw a major cheerleader competition. The place was overrun by many hundreds of 10 to 15 year-olds in inappropriately heavy make-up and their chaperones. Elevator waits were interminable and the...

Dear CryingMan, Thank you for providing us feedback on TripAdvisor. As I am glad to hear that your room itself was comfortable and sufficed, it is unfortunate to hear that there were some missed opportunities to provide you with world-class service.
