Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We checked in for the night for a concert. Perfect!

Beautiful hotel on the water in downtown Tampa! Loved hanging by the pool listening to music. The gym is awesome. Can walk to everything, great location!

Initially, we got a very nice room on one of top floors. It was fresh painted and refurbished, but smelled of paint. We then asked for a room with paint smell - no problem: they gave us (without any arguing) another room on the 15th floor. Great view. Very pleased!

This is our second time at this hotel, we love it. The concierge Duncan is so helpful with fishing boat and restaurant recommendations.

I have staied at some of the best hotels around, at some of the most high end hotels, yet none of them compared to the amaxing staff. The way i was treated from the moment I pulled into the drive way, I was welcomed with a smile and was offered help multiple times. Amazing stay!

I thought it was a rip off. The room was comfy and the view was nice and the staff was friendly. Internet was $12/day, parking was $28/day, no coffee in the lobby. I left feeling like I'd paid for the privilege of staying there, rather than feeling at all like they were glad to serve.

I was very pleased with the hotel and the stay. The only issue I had was that the mini fridge was in the room but not working. I brought medication that needed to be refrigerated and had to keep refilling ice into our cooler.

Very relaxing and a great view. Great restaurants!

Nice hotel with walkable access to fun and good. Service at hotel restaurant is hit and miss and expensive but fine quality. Premium wifi was great.

Each person we encountered was helpful and friendly

Great service, beautiful decor, staff was very friendly and accommodating, close to port, great patio. We loved it.

Reserved evening at Marriott for special occasion and booked concierge level. Was placed in room without concierge service with a balcony that overlooked roof repairs. Woke up to the smell of tar and discovered workmen below our balcony next morning repairing and tarring roof below our room. Will not stay at Marriott again!

Beautiful lobby, water and city views are pleasing, friendly and helpful staff, fast check in/out. The sink in our room had a leak but was repaired quickly once reported. Valet parking only, which is convenient but can quickly become pricey if staying for more than a few days.

One of the Nicest Hotels we have stayed at in Tampa. The Room, Lobby, Bar and Restaurants are all Very Nice.

We stayed at the hotel for a wedding downtown. The location as great. The room was comfortable. Really, the only con is lack of parking. You are required to valet park at additional fee.

Ventrally locatted, with great views and amenities.

Duncan at the concierge desk was terrific, got us great fishing captain and superb restaurants. He is a credit to your hotel.

I was in town for a convention-- excellent location and very nice room, though I must admit you can stay across the street and get free breakfast and free happy hour. I'd rate all 5's but I wish they at least offered breakfast.

It was a good trip, great location in walking distance of my meeting. Had dinner outside on Monday. Food was good.

We had a great time at the Marriot Waterside! The staff was above and beyond friendly. The pool was great with a bar too and nice gym and spa. The only things that would have made it better would have been free wifi and our room didn't have cleaning service until 5pm when we were returning from our day and getting ready for the evening...

beautiful hotel right on the water.

I was very pleased with the hotel and the stay. The only issue I had was that the mini fridge was in the room but not working. I brought medication that needed to be refrigerated and had to keep refilling ice into our cooler.
