Amazing Staff!

I was there for a professional conference and was really impressed with the competence and friendliness of the staff both with respect to the hotel itself and with our conference preparations. I was a bit frustrated by the high price of food within the hotel, but there were many wonderful restaurant choices within easy walking distance. The location is lovely.

Great location, Wonderful view

We chose the Marriott because of its location on the water and across the street from the St Pete Times forum. Went to a concert that night. There are plenty of places close by within walking distance for dinner and drinks. The Champions bar within the hotel was a fun place for a few rounds both before and after the show! The Hotel staff was very courteous and professional.

Chose MJ's Brewhouse for dinner, down along Channelside. Nice outdoor seating available with great views of the water and foot traffic below. Food was very good with a nice selection to choose from, prices reasonable.

The Best of the Best

We are from the Detroit area and were in town (3 days)for our Granddaughters Wedding. Our Son, Daughter and her Boyfriend were in town from Denver we wanted them to be where the action was Downtown. It couldn't have been any better since the Hockey Play Offs (Tampa vs Boston) were going on. Game 5 was being played just across the street from the Hotel and they got in to see the first 2 periods before the Wedding. Channel Side was a short walk away and Ybor City was just a short trolley ride away and boy did they have fun there also. The staff at the Hotel were very curtious. Our Son Travels out of town for his Job and he said he has never stayed in a Hotel like this and he has been to many 4 & 5 star places. Over the top for quality. Felt like a King and Queen all weekend. [...]

Great Experience!!!!

This hotel has a very helpful and friendly staff. Anything I needed was taken care of with quick and responsive staff members. It is very convenient to Channelside, Harbor Island and downtown Tampa. Also this hotel has a great sports bar on the first floor. I would recommend this hotel and will be using it again.
