Disappointed in what is supposed to be a premier Marriott property. Marginally clean. Slow elevators. Crippling slow internet. Swimming pool closed indefinitely and they revoked the substitute privileges with the ES across the street. Minimally equipped fitness center and no access to a locker room unless you PAY for SPA services. You're better served walking/running outside. Located in a food...

The views over the water were great. Our room was comfortable and quiet given the crowds. The restaurants were somewhat overwhelmed but limited their menu to...

Perfect location for anyone attending Gasparilla. Also right across the street from Amalie Arena. This was our 3rd stay and it's been great overtime. The staff was well prepared for the capacity crowd staying for Gasparilla 2016.

So I stay here a lot. What keeps me coming back is Joyce and her hospitality. She always has a smile and remembers who comes in and out and really welcomes you. She is the reason I keep coming back! Plus it is convenient and the rooms are nice. Love the balcony rooms overlooking the harbor

My husband and I stayed just one night but I was impressed. The atrium is beautiful and our room had a view of the water. The concierge lounge for Marriott members was on the 24th floor. The one wall was just windows and the seating was set up so you could see out over the downtown area.I had a delicious...

I have been coming here for about 15 years and it is always consistent in service and quality. Helpful staff quality service and a nice surrounding. It's a good place for a conference as they have great facilities to cater for big numbers and are clearly well practiced it doing them.

Stayed here again in January 2016 for the Florida Music Educators' Association conference.
