“Great location!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

First time in Tampa/St Pete. The hotel's entrance is very grand but the valet team took that grand feel away as soon as we drove in. We sat in the car for several minutes while they tried to handle all the cars coming in and out, very un-organized. Check in was nice. The room was average nothing out of the ordinary, could actually use some updating. The hotel is very picturesque but the lack of detail shows. Sorry I travel a lot. The views and the location are amazing. Close to restaurants and just a quick walk to local transit, which we took to Ybor city.

Great hotel...customer service was excellent. I wish they had a complimentary breakfast for guests to cut down on costs. Other than that was an excellent experience. The rooms were comfortable and cozy and we had a balcony with amazing views. Very centrally located with trolleys access to all nearby areas of interest.

Fantastic service this morning!! Carl Fuller, the host, literally worked his behind off this morning! The crowd of people in the concierge lounge was pretty much filled to capacity -- even with all of this, Carl still had a smile on his face and was quick to assist in anyway possible. I was very pleased! I will definitely stay here again! Thanks Carl!! :)

Carl Fuller, Jr. in the Concierge Lounge was so nice and helpful each morning. We were at the lounge at 6:30 each day. He greeted us with a smile and asked if we needed anything. The entire hotel staff was gracious and helpful. We look forward to returning to Tampa in the future and staying at this Marriott.

We had our wedding reception at the Marriott and it was absolutely perfect! The staff was very accommodating and paid attention to every detail. All of our guests were impressed and loved the hotel. Every part of the hotel is very picturesque. The event manager, Luis Miranda, was so helpful and made the planning very easy, fun, and stress-free. We will definitely be back to the Marriott in the future!
