“THE Great Escape Location in Tampa”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

This is a fabulous location and one the of the best Marriott properties I've stayed at in the all my years of travel. Highest compliments to bellmen, Matt, Sam and Brian, deep thanks to front desk supervisor, Peter Pudela, and the many thanks to Chef Kevin for a delicious welcome amenity anitpasto. Great food - especially from pastry chefs Sinia Groves and Danielle Ganung. Final kudos to Adrienne and therapist, Sue Collins, at Waterside Spa - best massage EVER!!

Room Tip: Corner Suites are large and sunny - ask for one overlooking the pool for a great view of the channel...

An amazing desk crew - after a red eye flight, they found a room for me at 8 am and upon departure, I had a 9 pm flight and they extended check-out till later in the afternoon. Convention food was decent - good flavors, hot and a wide variety. Hotel is spotless clean.
Downtown Tampa is mostly cement buildings plus the marina with expensive boats.
Streetcar it to Ybor City for colorful shops and bars, eat at Bern's Steakhouse, and Edison Food Lab.

The Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina is just what is known as" Pariadise". The complex is located right on the Tampa Waterways, The Marina lines both sides of the shore with Boats of all sizes and makes. The Swimming Pool located on the third floor provides a great cooling off, whiile looking down at the sights and roadways.The rooms are large, will equipped and clean. The house keeping staff is at your service daily. There are eight elevators, and they all work. There is no wasted time standing around waiting for one. With 27 floors, the stairs can be long. The food is very good for a Hotel, service is outstanding. However, these are not McDonalds prices, A good Burger and Cold Beer will take a $20.00 dollar bill.
Make sure you get your tickets for the TECO Line Stree tcar It stops across the street from the Marriott, and will take you all over the City of Tampa. This is great Hotel for a vacation or get away, it has it all.

Room Tip: This Hotel is 27 floors overlooking the waterfront and the City of Tampa. The night view is like a p...

The hotel's service is very impressive. I forgot my cell phone charger in the room and realized that after arriving home. Front Desk Manager Jasmine Kernes helped me retrieve the charger, shipped it to me, and covered the shipping cost! Checking in was also very efficient. I asked for a room with window facing east and they quickly found one for me. The room was also very clean and spacious.
I highly recommend this hotel.

Just got back from a business trip and if it wasn't for the amount of work I had to do I would have felt as if I was in vacation. This hotel is one of my favorite, its rooms are beautiful and the top roof swimming pool is out of this world. The lounge for frequent travelers have fresh food and drinks. I normally suffer from neck pain and surprisingly I was able to sleep good and felt rested the next day.
I am not giving a five start review because I had to call twice for house keeping service.

Room Tip: Rooms by the waterside are simply better for the view.

This hotel is in a great location for beautiful surroundings and offers some spectacular views of the area. There are many directions to head in for a nice stroll around the area and along the River Walk, very convenient to the streetcar. The staff at the front desk were very friendly, the staff at the concierge desk were very helpful. Carl in the Concierge Lounge worked hard keeping the breakfast buffet full -- yummy fresh fruits.

I must say that I have had the best hotel food ...hands down... at the Tampa Marriott Waterside property. The service provided by staff is worthy of awards. I dined at the Waterside Grill and Champions Sports Bar. My first meal took place at the Waterside Grill. The server suggested I try the blackened Mahi Mahi as a soft taco. I did and it was exceptional - I knew the PRSA conference I was attending was going to be a success because the first meal hit a home run. I am a room service junky and have experienced some pretty bad food. But When I uncovered the STL style ribs and that sweet/spicy BBQ sauce aroma wafted through my sinuses, my tummy did a happy dance. I just finished lunch ... choosing clam chowder and mojito grilled shrimp... let me tell ya emm emm good! the claim chowder was better than the chowder I raved about in Boston! The chefs on this property are Killing IT! I hope this Marriott property keeps the culinary team cause they are the best.

Room Tip: Just steps from the hotel (between the hotel and convention center) is a outside bar with a great br...
