The rooms are standard Marriott. The hotel is a convention hotel not a resort. The $22 for parking is stiff for Tampa, but the valets run to get your vehicle so the wait is not too long. The fitness center has a good array of new treadmills, bikes and ellipse machines and weights. Use the fitness center before the wait starts at 6:00 am. The pool areas is reasonable large and overlooks the island and marina. Front desk service was outstanding. We had one problem with the room that engineering corrected. Recommend going outside the property for food. Walk across the bridge to Harbor Island and go left or right for multiple choices. Recommend Café Dufrain. You are not really in downtown Tampa - it is a 10 minute walk and there is not much in downtown Tampa. The Convention Center and Tampa Bay Times are to the left and right respectively across the street as is the light to unused street cars that go to Ybor.
