    The BEST Experience

    There are not enough adjectives to describe how incredible our experience was with the Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk Hotel for our September wedding! Everything - from setting a date, picking our menu, doing walkthroughs and the day of were flawless! Brooke Potter was an absolute blessing. Due to COVID and all of the changes that brought our way, Brooke was already 2 steps ahead of us with plans and alternatives, and was always very responsive to our needs, calls and emails. The hotel itself was able to accommodate all of our out-of-state guests and everybody had nothing but great things to say about their rooms. Our complimentary suite was perfect for the bridal party to get ready in the morning of the wedding and was cleaned up and reset for us to spend the night in after our wedding, too. Everyone on staff simply couldn't do enough and were constantly asking us (and our family and guests!) if there was anything that they could do for us. The day of the wedding went so smoothly and everything was just as we imagined it. Brooke seemed like she was in 20 places as once, always within reach that day for ANYTHING (heck, she even brought me a drink while we waited for ceremony time!). The food!! The food was SO good! Every meal was served hot, tasted fantastic and the wait staff all had smiles on their faces. It was the most beautiful day in a gorgeous venue and was everything we dreamed it would be. Thank you isn't enough for this staff and venue!

    April 24 Wedding

    We booked our wedding reception at the Sheraton and we were blown away! My contact with the hotel was Brooke and she was very professional and responsive. I was booking with them 3 months prior to our wedding, since our first location cancelled, and Brooke made it stress-free. The food was amazing and the entire staff was wonderful and made sure we were happy the entire night! The set up was beautiful and everything was perfect. I couldn’t have been happier with our wedding day!
