Reviews for Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina
Downtown Tampa convenience, 2015-01-25
Captain: , Kenlake Marina on Kentucky Lake (232)

The two bridges bordering this marina are charted incorrectly at 10 ft. At LOW tide the western bridge has a 17 foot clearance. The bridge has no height markings. The marina is located downtown Tampa. Access to trolley directly across from the hotel. Dockmaster, Tony, was very accommodating. Food trucks and entertainment at circle near convention center (just around the corner) on Friday. Take the trolley to Ybor City for a wonderful meal at Columbia Restaurant. Call ahead for reservations.

Tampa Marriott Waterside was Great!, 2014-06-29
Captain: , Treasure island, FL (30)

We had a terrific weekend stay, and took advantage of many of the local sites and activities. The Dockmaster, Tony, is wonderful. We had an issue with our boat while there and he was extremely helpful sorting through a few things to ensure our stay was pleasant.

There were papers waiting each morning, clean, well maintained slips, and Starbucks in the hotel lobby!

All-in-all a great place to stay and we will be back!

Great weekend marina!, 2011-01-11
Captain: , Tampa Marriott Waterside (10)

The Tampa Marriott Waterside Marina is a great weekend marina. Transients have access to all of the hotel's facilities. Channelside, the Tampa Aquarium and the St. Pete Times Forum are a very short walk away, and the trolley station in front of the hotel provides convenient access to Ybor City.

There is a low bridge just before the marina, so taller boats may not be able to get there. There is a Sea Ray 480 Motoryacht docked there, so anything lower than that should be fine.

Service is top notch. You can even order room service! Ice is available dockside. The floating concrete docks are very convenient. This is a very clean marina in a great location downtown Tampa. I highly recommend it!
