“Beautiful and at a fine location”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Arriving from Tampa Int Airport it could not be easier to find this hotel. Just follow the 60 and you are there in half an hour. Perfectly situated for Clearwater Beaches, St Petersburg and Tampa. A fine experience – and we were so lucky to be able to see the sun set from a high west facing room. Breakfast is basic and a few more healthy options would have been nice. Also: I’m sure that the carpet in the breakfast room will be replaced one of these days. It’s not in line with the (high) standards.

Yes a straight shot from the airport very easy. You are correct we will be going through renovations later in the year and yes our breakfast area carpet will be getting replace along with the whole buffet look. As a Marriott our breakfast options are always being reviewed we certainly can look into offering more healthy options. Currently we offer oatmeal, yogurts, wheat bagels, multigrain breads and fresh cut fruit. Thank you again we truly appreciate hearing from our guests.

great place to stay. very convenient for phillies fans to stadium and to clearwater beaches. right in the middle of both. very clean. great customer service. they upgraded us to a large suite when we got there. full buffet breakfast was great. we had some adjustments at the end of our trip due to weather conditions/airlines. they handled them without a fuss. no extra fees, etc... a real relief in today's world. would stay there again.

I had a great experience staying at the Residence Inn, Downtown Clearwater. Great location close to beaches, super clean and comfortable room and great friendly staff. Breakfast had just the right choices. I would highly recommend!

All the positive reviews were right on the money. Belinda and all of the staff are very personable and do a great job of making you feel at home. We stayed 4 nights and appreciated what amounts to a mini apartment with kitchenette a nice plus. We were on the first floor with the taller ceiling which did feel more spacious. Enjoyed the free breakfast, mgr reception one night, short drive to beach/waterfront and closenness to main highways. Loved my crab dinner at Crabby Bill's near the beach and kept the leftovers in the frig to snack on the next day. Had a great stay and would stay there again.

We were very happy staying at the Residence Inn. The rooms were well appointed and very clean. The breakfast bar had something for everyone and it remained well stocked. The front desk women, Nancy, Belinda and Kathy, couldn't have been more accommodating when we asked to change our room due to a crying baby (all night long!) in the room next to ours. They even moved our luggage so that we didn't have to wait around all day! The entire staff was always friendly and smiling. The location is great with easy access to the beach, shopping and restaurants. Also, there is a very nice Pet Vet across the street which offers overnight boarding, dog baths etc. Residence Inn is pet friendly with a $100 fee for the entire stay.

Room Tip: Make sure you aren't placed next door to a screaming baby!!!! We were given the last room when...

Fantastic location for adult, music-loving leisure travelers with a car. 1 block from "Alt 19" which is a major street running north/south. We used this street to travel north to Dunedin, Tarpon Springs, Palm Harbor, etc. Hotel is 5-10 minutes (in February) from Mandalay Ave in Clearwater Beach which is a commercial strip of restaurants (several with live music) and shops a block from the beach. From Clearwater Beach, we traveled south on Gulf Boulevard to see the beaches of Sand Key and Indian Rocks and to visit John's Pass Village in Madeira Beach. If you love live music, try Frenchy's, Clear Sky and Palm Pavilion in Clearwater Beach and Mako's on the Rocks in Largo (15-20 minutes from hotel).

We could not agree with you more there is a great deal of festivies not too far from the hotel in all directions and yes it is nice to have a car. Although it does get busy in the City of Clearwater this time of the year the drives still are not that bad. I was pleased to read you enjoyed your time here in Clearwater. Thank you very much for posting your comments.

We love staying at the Marriott's Residence Inn Hotels when our budget allows, and as usual this hotel is well appointed and very comfortable. However, the clientele is largely business people and conference goers, along with a few unsuspecting family vacationers. While the staff was great, I hate feeling like my fellow travelers are staring death-knives at my kids (who are actually pretty great travelers) just for acting like kids on vacation. Additionally the location is pretty blah; no views, no great shops or local neighbourhoods. But if you stay there, make sure you order pizza from Bro's around the corner.

Room Tip: Don't stay on the 1st floor. Noise travels from the front desk and elevator.
