Great location- Nice Rooms- Hotel staff was accommodating- Breakfast buffet was great, loved the omelet station. Pool was nice, they bring the grill on the weekends gave the pool a fun vibe and some good food, since they dont offer food service on the daily. Enjoyed my visit here ... look forward to coming back.

The location was great--views of the river at every turn and steps from the RiverWalk. Excellent facilities, staff, and food. However, the elevators were a constant problem! We waited on most occasions, during our 4 day stay, at least 10 minutes (& at one point, 20+ minutes!!) for an elevator. An employee took pity on us one time, after seeing...

Have you ever had a massage where it wasn't just routine? Where the person wasn't just going through the motions but actually listening to your body and deciding what to do next as a result? Well this was Julie, who made my tense neck and shoulders feel better than I ever would have thought a mere massage can achieve. Go...

Traveled here for business with my husband. First, the staff are wonderful, especially Nicole Phillips, Jennifer B. and Laura....all from the Great Room, Lobby! Very attentive and super accommodating. We stated we didn't have a fridge in our room and Nicole went and got one delivered to our room. Gary, the Lobby Bar Manager, checked on us and made sure...

I stayed at the Tampa waterside hotel while visiting my daughter at UT. It is a nice hotel, however, it is definitely showing weathered conditions. I describe it as a tired hotel. The TV in the room was not working properly. The hotel was extremely busy while we stayed so it was never repaired. There was also some type of...

The hotel was nice. It was very large and the elevators were separated from floors 1-10 and then 10 and up, which was odd and confusing. The rooms were nice and housekeeping was excellent. The room had a wine cooler but not a mini fridge, which was strange. Our room had a balcony but the door was jammed and we...

To me the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel was a major disappointment. This is not a cheap hotel. It's a high end hotel, but I definitely get better service from some of the cheaper hotels that I stay in from time to time. First issue I had was with the room. I was at the Waterside hotel on a business trip...

This place was amazing. From the moment you pull onto the property. The service, the level of care, the smells, the rooms...everything was spectacular.
