Marriott was absolutely amazing to work with throughout the entire planning, during and after our wedding. They're incredibly responsive and accommodating. We had staff dedicated just to my husband and I the entire night of our wedding which was fantastic. The food was great and the guests all raved. Jeni Wallace deserves her own props since she was the best!Sent on 05/25/2017

This is a gorgeous hotel right in the heart of downtown Tampa. We booked a block of rooms here for our out-of-town guests and will also be using their suite to get the bridal and groom parties ready. The luxury suite they have is HUGE and will be perfect for getting ready. They are extremely accommodating and the staff has been wonderful to work with. They even let me take a self-guided tour of the luxury suite to make sure there would be enough room, there definitely will be! So excited for everyone to be housed under their amazing roof!Sent on 12/26/2015

We are so happy with our decision to hold our wedding reception at the Tampa Marriott Waterside. We wanted a small wedding (~50 people), and it was important to us that all of our friends and family feel special. The Il Terrazzo room was the ideal location for this. The gorgeous outdoor area was perfect for the cocktail hour, and the room was transformed beyond what we had envisioned. We loved working with Luis Miranda, and he was so accommodating of the fact that we were planning from out of state. We felt very comfortable working with him and knew we were in good hands. The staff of the Marriott on the wedding day was beyond efficient and organized. It allowed me to relax and enjoy the event, knowing they had everything under control. The food was amazing, and the chef made everything perfectly to our specifications. The desserts were also phenomenal. We would definitely recommend the Marriott. I can't say enough positive things about the staff's friendliness and accommodation.Sent on 04/22/2015
