My boyfriend and I arrived on Saturday night to a very noisy hotel. I booked a water view room with a balcony and a king sized bed for us. Upon arrival, I was given a room with two double beds NOT overlooking the water and with a broken door so I couldn't even access the balcony that overlooked the STREET....

Dear Alexandra K, On behalf of our team at the Waterside, I certainly extend an apology for what your experienced. From the time arrival, and every detail thereafter, we are committed to providing a best in class experience. Clearly, we fell short of these expectations during your visit.

Nice hotel great location to Arena, Convention Center, Ybor City. If you are in the executive lounge Carl Fuller is excellent in every way. Only downside to me is valet parking ,though efficient raises cost with tips and daily charges, money id rather use for F&B. Sports bar in resturant standard fare but good service.

We were in town for SOFIC and docked the Smooth C's for 4 nights at the Marriott Waterside Marina. This was our second year and the service, once again, was great! Chris was a big help in securing our reservation and checking in with us before, during, and post stay. Pat and Earle, the two dockmasters, were fantastic. Pat assisted...

I've stayed at the Marriott Waterside before and it is a very nice hotel. The staff are great and they are very friendly and helpful. However we experienced some very rude guests while there and nobody on the staff attempted to do anything to stop this behavior. Friday night at the lobby bar, there was an extremely drunk and very...

This is a generally wonderful hotel in the midst of everything that is wonderful in downtown Tampa. But the parking situation, both valet and self parking, is so bad I don't even want to give the hotel an average rating! We arrived May 20th around 3:00 in the afternoon waited 35 minutes in the parking line for a valet to...

I'd give this experience the highest regards. Carl at the Concierge Lounge was awesome about dealing with the food, coffee and concierge service. In addition, the views were beautiful and the overall experience was truly great. I would come back any time, and I recommend the breakfast buffet to everyone as well.

The room was clean, however, cleaning person overlooked the window when they were cleaning the room. The view was beautiful but other people's face prints were on the window. This property is beautiful. The pool area is really nice with a great bar area. The bartender was great! The restaurants had good salads and the servers were really nice. We...
