Sheraton Tamps Riverwalk Hotel
We had a wonderful experience with the Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk Hotel and their entire staff and I would highly recommend choosing this venue. Paul Sparks their Wedding Specialist took care of us from beginning to end. He answered every question, was very responsive to any need we had took care of every detail of our big day and helped us right through until the day of the wedding right up until the end of our event at 11:00 PM. The hotel rooms are nice, the hotel ballroom is beautiful and overlooks the water which made for spectacular sunset and evening pictures. We had breakfast for our guests the following morning in a private room. The entire staff at the hotel took care of any request that we had.Sent on 04/30/2019

November 16 Wedding
From the start, my husband and I knew we wanted to have our wedding at one location where we could hold both the ceremony and reception so that we did not need to transport guests from one spot to the other. The location of the Sheraton is convenient to most everything in South Tampa, but keep in mind that it is busy as it is downtown. There was a Lightning game the night of our wedding, but we just made sure to tell our guests to leave a little early to account for the extra traffic. As for the look of the venue, if you are shooting for an evening ceremony/reception, there really isn't a better spot than the Sheraton to view the Riverwalk at night. The whole river is lit up beautifully, and UT across the river look gorgeous at night as well. The food at the Sheraton was also fantastic, and their drink package had great options as well. The best part about the whole experience was working with the wedding coordinator Paul Sparks. I really cannot say enough fantastic things about Paul and his team. He made sure that every single detail was taken care of and coordinated the timing of set up/drop off with all our vendors for us. He also made sure all of the decor items we brought (table numbers, wood signs, photo props, jenga guest book, etc.) were set up exactly how we wanted them. You can tell that Paul really cares about his bride and groom's experience, and we sincerely appreciated the effort he put in to make our wedding special.Sent on 11/25/2019

Awesome venue that has it all
This was the perfect place for our wedding - it had ceremony space, cocktail hour and reception space. The catering was easy and they honestly are very hands on and help with everything. Paul Sparks, the planner throughout the process and day of planner was amazing. He helped make our day awesome! I honestly don't know that I would have changed anything.
