If you are at the hotel and want to relax a little bit, I recommend the spa services. Denise for reflexology was amazing. I hadn't had that service before, and now I'm worried that no one will be as good as Denise! While it is a little pricey, it was definitely worth it. Judy the manicurist was also excellent on the service side of things and also very personable. This was definitely an enjoyable break.

Room Tip: As far as rooms, make sure to get one facing the water.

Stayed here for a conference. Room was fine, comfy bed. But the internet - even if you paid $17+ for the so-called 'fast' speed - was appallingly slow. I was trying to do work on a deadline and web pages loaded so slowly I could not. My email took ages to download. Unacceptable for a business/conference hotel (and the conference center across the street was even worse)!
Room service - Had run out of several items - and has a limited menu. Kitchen kindly agreed to provide some grilled chicken. But the 'beet' salad I ordered must only have had 4 tiny cubes of beet in it and was mostly greens - felt like a rip off given the cost. People reported other hotels - embassy suites across the road for example - were cheaper with great internet!

Arrived for R&R for a long weekend. Hotel was full but I was able to check into my room fairly early. The staff was attentive and responsive. Special thanks to Hazel who made things right on a couple of occasions after minor hiccups with the room location and room service. Perfect location and excellent customer service made this a good stay. Expensive valet and room rates tried to derail the positive experience. 85 degrees and sunny in Tampa helped keep us on the right track.

Stayed here last week for two nights. We paid extra for a balcony waterside room. The view was great but the room was no different than hotels that are 1/2 the cost. I was shocked to find that the same days we stayed that the price for similar rooms had skyrocketed all the way to $500+ a night. Luckily I booked enough in advance to only pay about $370/nt. The hotel has NO self-parking according to the valets and valeting your car will cost $24+tax a night which is a shame considering that there are numerous parking garages around the area yet none of which the hotel guests can use without paying exorbitant hourly rates. Our toilet/sink/shower would occasionally make gurgling noises as if they were going to start backing up which was a little concerning. Also there was a discrepancy (charged for onsite expenses that I didn't purchase) on my incidentals bill prior to check out that took some sorting out, but in the end, they fixed it. As other reviews have said, this place is bustling but that didn't seem to diminish the service so that was nice. I would only stay here again if it were for business and less than $300/night, definitely not ~$400/night for leisure.

Room Tip: Definitely stay away from rooms near the elevators and vending machines. Waterside views are great. Rooms with a balcony are the way to go.

Thank you for your recent stay at the Tampa Marriott Waterside and for your posting on Trip Advisor. I certainly extend an apology for any disservice the plumbing issues may have caused, as well as the billing error. In addition, thank you for your kind words regarding staff service. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to welcoming back to the Marriott Waterside should your travels bring you back to the Tampa area.

Very nice hotel and very pleasant environment around hotel. The staff have been wonderful and the services have been expertly provided. Carl Fuller, Jr. in the Concierge Lounge on the 24th has been particularly friendly and helpful. He kept the place clean and orderly during my stay.
