Rooms were clean and comfortable, although somewhat dated. The staff was friendly and the lobby/bar area was packed with football fans. I'm not sure what this hotel is like during a normal period of time, but it's location is perfect; walk to the riverwalk, convention center, etc. There is definitely a lot to see and do within walking distance.

If you want to be in convention center hell and want to be jerked around at check in, this is your place. Arrived at 2:45 and room not ready. Promised a 4 p.m. check-I'm and came back at 4:15 to be told it would be 6:30 p.m. before room was ready. We got out there and stayed somewhere else. Place...

We have stayed at this location several times. It is walking distance to Amalie Arena, the convention center and Gaspirilla. Also a quick trolley ride to Ybor. Rooms are clean and well kept. Service is excellent. Warning: if you want a room during Gaspirilla book it MANY months in advance.

Loved the visit. Nightly visits to the concierge level were fantastic with Joyce Williams as one of our hostesses. She was so friendly and welcoming every night, as was the staff at the hotel. If you are able to make it to the concierge level, would definitely suggest it. They have tasty little apps (crab cakes and chicken quesadillas personal...

We had a great stay at the Tampa Marriott Waterside. Great location and great service which was highlighted by Carl Fuller Jr. who took great care of us in the Concierge Lounge. I would definitely recommend this location for all Tampa trips.

Carl Fuller, Jr. in the concierge lounge is the absolute best. He does a wonderful job, but more importantly he is friendly and extremely helpful. He gave us great tips for the best places to eat, and went out of his way to help us.

I have stayed at this property multiple times over the last eight years, and the thing that has always stood out is the willingness of staff members to extend themselves in a way that goes above and beyond their responsibilities. The design of the property is striking, and the development of the Waterside area gets better and better with each...

Really nice hotel and Carl in the concierge lounge just does a wonderful job of keeping it well stocked and tidy. He's extremely nice and tends to everyone's needs like few lounge managers I've seen. Keep up the good work.

My family of 5 stayed here the night before a cruise out of the Tampa port. The location is ideal for both port accessibility and right across from Amalie Arena. Lovely area, with shops and restaurants to explore. My issue is with the website stating very clearly that the double rooms can accommodate a rollaway. We booked the room 6...

My family (1-year old son and mother) visited Tampa the week before Christmas for the first time during December 18-25. We stayed at the Marriott Waterside hotel based on its location to downtown and the amenities that the hotel offered. I was so pleasantly surprised by how friendly the entire staff was every day! We stayed in room 610, and...
