“We Keep Going Back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Have been staying here one-two times each year (one to three rooms each stay).
Mature professionals like Jack at the pool bar, Bruce working the pool,and Clara at Starbucks all make a real difference and it is good to see familiar competent staff each time we return. New front desk person Ricardo is good.

Downside:
Do not stay on water side on Friday or Saturdy unless you are deaf. The music from Jacksons goes all night. This should be stopped.

Room Tip: City side on Friday or Saturday night

Green Features: They should promote how they utilize a hyponic? garden (lights) next to pool area.

Hotel is centrally located, gym has multiple options, and outdoor seating area by the marina is cozy. The valet staff is friendly and fast. I had access to the concierge lounge and thought the staff there was fantastic. Carl Fullen is on top of every table and Joyce's great personality made the trip a pleasant experience.

Excellent checkin and concierge services with great hospitality in the club from both Joyce Williams and Carl. A truly enjoyable experience. I was traveling on business and the hotel is walking distance from the office.
Champions was fun for Hockey!!!

Room Tip: Get water view if possible and watch the storms blow in!!!

A group of us stay here for Gasparilla and other events that happen nearby a few times a year. The staff always take great care of us and it's always a fantastic time! Even though we live in Tampa it's like being out of town! Beautiful hotel! Neal is one of the managers and he always goes above and beyond whether were on the dock, in our rooms, or in the bars and restaurants! He's fantastic!

A very nice hotel with a professional and friendly staff at all levels. I always enjoy a hotel with a great view of the marina and city at night. The hotel location is within walking distance the river walk or the Florida aquarium. If it's too hot out take the trolley which is also across the street to catch to YBOR or other nearby attractions.Traffic was light around the facility due to no event at the Times Forum which is directly across from the hotel. So it was quiet since our room was located on the 22 floor and on the front side city view of the hotel. Visited the pool and was happy to see a whirlpool available and a outdoor cabana to sip a tropical drink while floating like a manatee in the pool. Ventured out on foot to explore around. Found a hut like bar open at night playing great reggae music on a jukebox and sports TV's galore. All outdoor seating and located between the hotel and Tampa Convention center. If you find the LARGE metal whimsical angler fish sculpture out front then you are there. Tampa Marriott has a lot to offer inside as well as outside to make your trip or visit comfortable.We Highly recommend.

Room Tip: I would recommend upgrading to a marina view if possible on a high upper level.

Green Features: Housekeeping staff will NOT knock or service your room if your privacy sign is on the door. Awesome. Also towel service and sheets will not be changed unless you notify by a request card not service your room. Therefore being more green form the environment less water use and electric.

A beautiful hotel, with fantastic service. Carl in the Concierge Lounge was particularly pleasant. The facilities are wonderful - there's a large lap pool overlooking the bay, and the lobby is a great place to sit for a moment or have some drinks. The sports bar in the lobby, Champions, is pretty good too.

Room Tip: Ask for a bay view.
