Awesome convenience

Went for a concert at the St. Pete Times Forum, which is across the street, the convention center is also across the street. The hotel was beautiful, clean, very comfortable. The staff was very friendly, courteous, helpful, and respectful.

Worth it for hockey

We stayed at this hotel strictly because it is literally steps from the St. Pete Times Forum. It was a beautiful place overlooking the water with lots of awesome stuff surrounding it. The only problem was, as a hockey fan, I wasn't used to valet parking and INCESSANT TIPPING of people who perform menial tasks without you asking. So if you're prepared for that, I recommend this hotel 100%. (PS - don't get excited about the rooms, they're as standard as they come.)

Girls Getaway

My girlfriend and I went to Tampa for a concert. Neither of us had ever been there before, so we were winging it. The Waterside hotel was great. The staff told us where to go for food, fun and shopping. Everywhere we ended up was wonderful. The hotel was really clean and nice and the location doesn't get any better. You can take a short cab ride to anywhere, but there is also the trolley for $5/day and it's right across the street from the hotel! Perfect!!!

Really relaxing

I thought the hotel was great. The valet service was efficient. When you first walk in you are greeted and directed to the check-in. The room was clean with the exception of one spot on the white comforter. However, having white comforters is nice because you can really tell they are clean. The elevators move pretty fast, which is nice. The pool, bar and spa are all kept beautifully.
