We were aghast at the “welcome” we received in your hotel (see encl. image). I am a regular and generally happy user of Marriott but this one was awful in many respects. After the nauseating entry into our room, we requested a change of room (granted) and went to get something to eat. That was really unpleasant as well. Apart...

While walking along the Riverwalk, 3 of us stopped to eat lunch at the Marriott. Enjoyed the food and great service by Shealyn S. She was attentive and friendly and we didn't have to wait long for anything. Thank you!

Really impressed by the service provided by Carl Fuller in the Concierge Lounge this morning. A beautiful view of the harbor from the 24th floor made all the more enjoyable by Carl's hard work, great food, and friendly manner!

This is a large hotel downtown on the water near the Amale Arena. We were here for the Barbra Streisand concert. Great location location for that. The front drive up of the hotel is under construction and you have to valet your car at the street. But the hotel seems to have that issue under control. The lobby is nice...

Came for the Tampa car show, very convenient location. Pool area is very nice. Ate 3 meals here and all were great. Convenient for a walk to Hyde Park (not a short walk), but we enjoyed it. Nice to have a safe in the room. Not a fan of the cooler, give me a mini fridge that keeps things cold....

The golden gems of this property are Joyce and Lisa in the Concierge Lounge! They work nightly Sunday - Thursday and keep the Lounge in perfect order. They are friendly with greeting guests and really make you feel welcome. Thank you ladies for making my stay even more special!
