Stayed in early July, to attend a concert at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Great location; maybe a 5 min walk to the venue. Found the hotel to be beautiful. Large, open lobby with potted palms and free WiFi. Rooms have water views, city views and some have balconies. The bed was sumptuous. The pool area at this hotel is very large with an outside bar. There are multiple options for food. Try the sweet potatoe fries in Champs (had them twice they were so good). The hotel is also close to the convention center. Out front of the hotel is a trolley you can take to the Aquarium and Channelside shopping district or ride all the way to Ybor City. There is another trolley that makes a loop of downtown. Both were inexpensive and let you see the area, especially if you do not have a car. Outback of the hotel is a large deck area for enjoying the view of the marina.

I had a very nice corner room with a balcony upgrade when I checked in. Carl Fuller in the concierge lounge does an amazing job! Very freiendly and makes my morning much better each week. I will continue to stay at this hotel each week for the next few months.

We love coming here by Boat from St Pete. We stay overnight and enjoy the roof top pool by day. Excellent service by the pool. Drinks are wonderful and we love seeing Bruce every time here is here. He takes great care of everyone and keeps everything up to par. Great job Marriott!

BEWARE. The outside waterside patio for the bar allows smoking ANYWHERE!! Our partyfound a nice table and was enveloped in the stink and clouds from two patrons smoking cigars!! It was awful. Marriott has the ability to restrict this sort of activity to more remote locations. CLEAN THIS UP MARRIOTT

This Marriott has great customer service. Very polite from the moment you pull up in your car. Concierge Lounge is nicely stocked and friendly people. When you call down to the front desk with a question or issue you get a very fast response and an accommodating answer. Just nice service.

Room Tip: I stayed on the water side and it was great. Know that Tampa is known for their lightning/thunder storms. If these storms cause you to tremble, you might prefer city side.
