I've seen some mediocre reviews of this property so I was a little concerned about staying there. I booked it because it was one of the only separate bedroom suite hotels near Clearwater, (went to Phillies spring training) and on the water. My wife and I were very pleasantly surprised. I am typically very critical of my accodomations but I really couldn't find anything wrong with this Marriot.
Our suite was not huge but it was very comfortable and properly laid out. This is not a brand new hotel but it was clean, freshly painted, and tastefully decorated. The bedding and pillows were very comfortable. Despite the hotel being full, we never heard a sound from outside our room except for an occasional slammed door. Two large LCD tvs, microwave and fridge made the stay very easy.
The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The valet parking and room service were prompt. The Watercolor restaurant claimes to be award winning, and it was for us.
A beautiful waterfalled pool and excellant spa added to the experience. The location is on the bay along a small boardwalk with surprisingly nice shops, restaurants, and watersports.
Some have criticized the outside entrances to the individual suites but since it allows views of both the bay and gulf I can see why it was built that way. I guess in bad weather it might be a problem but I enjoyed the views.
I would stay there again.
