Good hotel, but overpriced for what it offers. You pay for the location. Came here to escape muggy Orlando. Rooms need to be renovated which is scheduled this year. Rooms are suites with living room and bedroom.Take a room with a view of the channel facing Clearwater. Had room 421 on the 4th floor of a 10 floor building, which was close to the air conditioning unit and therefore noisy on the balcony. Request for room on a higher floor could not be met because hotel was sold out. We were given a ... Read more

Here right now and I must say when I first read reviews, I was a bit apprehensive about staying here. Cannot remember where I read those reviews. Anyway, the rooms are nice...suites. Nothing totally enormous but still clean and plenty big. The shower's water pressure is great (always a plus for me). The grounds are nice and every member of staff have been very kind. The trolley to go to the pier picks up right outside the door.

We have spent multiple vacations on Clearwater Beach and really enjoy the area for long weekends. We usually stay at the Hilton but decided to give the Marriott a try. Mildly disappointed. No beach. If you look at the photos on line, they are misleading. There is one picture of two beach chairs and an umbrella looking over the water. Um, no. That is actually miles away and will cost you an additional $30 on top of the parking. Rooms need help. Moldy carpeting and dated. Time to clean up y... Read more

I recently stayed 3 nights at this hotel and was very disappointed, despite the Marriott brand and the $300 a night price tag, it was very old and tired and definitely not upmarket at all. The rooms are all accessed from outside hallways like a seaside motel, there is no security in the elevators so anyone can be on the hallways and the security lock on my door did not operate. I addition I tried to go down one flight of stairs one day and the door to the stairs was either jammed or locked, ei... Read more

Friendly helpful staff. Hotel room basic but adequate. Nice bar and pool area with great views of the bay. Not many shops or other bars near the hotel. You need to take the trolley bus to pier 60 area to find more to do. Trolley bus all day hop on and off ticket is available from the hotel front desk for only $5.

This hotel is not on a beach but there are plenty of beaches near by. All the rooms have a water view. The pool was area was very nice and they have a poolside bar that also serves food. You are not on the beach side but instead on the river side. There is a watersports rental company on the property and they have stairs that go down into the water. The breakfast buffet was not great so I would order off the menu instead. If you are going soon I would call and ask about the construction ha... Read more

I want to start by saying I'm a PLATINUM ELITE Marriott member. I stay at various Marriotts weekly. We came with a big group of friends (families with children). We spent all of our time at the pool. The service by the pool was pretty lousy. The lady that served us one of the day's was rude and condescending. We probably spent $ 1,000 between all of us and the last thing she should have been was rude. After returning home- we realized my son forgot his little stuffed animal in the room. We ... Read more

The location of the Marriott on Sand Key is amazing. The views are so beautiful, it's a short walk to the beach but they have a shuttle if you don't want to walk. We saw dolphins every day. There's delicious food on site in Watercolors, and also down the boardwalk at Maggie Mae's or Backwaters Steakhouse and Seafood. The only downside of the stay was the noise of the renovations (I was told they'd be done in December), the price for drinks in the bar ($10 per cocktail!) and the old sad shape o... Read more

We had dinner at the Watercolor Steakhouse and they had a special table set for us away from the other guests, which was very nice. Our service at dinner was excellent.

The hotel staff from check in to departure couldn't have been nicer. The room had a view of the gulf from the front door and the intercostal on the balcony. The pool was great for the family. The popcorn ceiling and some of the features are dated, but not to the point were I was unhappy. Just to be clear, it's on the intercostal, not the Gulf of Mexico. However, the staff will take you across the street and through the complexes on the coast to the gulf beach.

For the money I was hoping to get more from this property. I guess what you are really paying for is access to the beach and your view of the intercoastal waterway. The view was very nice, I will say. However, this is ALL you get for the money (and nearly $300/night was still too much). I believe you are even charged for WiFi. I'm not really sure on that because they somehow had me as an Elite Mariott Rewards member and waived my fee, but it appears that it would be about $7/day for most people.... Read more

Well for starters the hotel was under construction, so just beware of that. We ended up checking in well after 4:30 even though check in was supposed to be at 4. The only reason why we ended up getting our room was because we complained about the wait, if not we would have waited longer. That put damper on our weekend.

Basically, it was overrated and overpriced. Also, when we booked the hotel, they somehow failed to mention that they would be doing renovations during our planned stay. The nice pool was ruined by the construction noises and barrier fence that blocked the view of the bay. The beach was a 10 minute shuttle ride from the hotel.

I stayed at this hotel for a conference in May. Stayed here for four nights and overall enjoyed the stay. Try and reserve a room with a balcony and view of the bay on a high floor. The pool bar was in a great location. The disadvantage of this hotel is that you have to walk across the street to get to the beach. They also have an annoying parrot in the lobby that squawks loudly...I'm not sure why the hotel thinks this adds to the ambiance of the hotel.

We have traveled to this hotel for 5 years during our Family Reunion week. This year there is construction which has reduced the number of seats & more importantly umbrellas at the pool and parking spaces. 1/5th of the parking places are used for truck sized storage. The lack of umbrellas and the Florida sunshine makes the pool less accommodating than in past years, but it is still a great property and after the upgrades--whatever they are--it will undoubtedly be better.

Been coming here for years.... asked for a room overlooking the pool online and by phone, confirmed a pool view the night before. We checked in at 2 am arriving from a day at Disney to find we got a bay view instead. Then we were woken up early to the hammering of a jack hammer which was non stop. The hotel was under renovation but was not listed on the website... Next year a new hotel...

Just returned yesterday from a long weekend in Clearwater. I've seen the reviews about the construction at this hotel. It didn't bother us one bit! The pool is beautiful. And this hotel has the best views in Clearwater. When we got off the elevator on the 6th floor, I was just amazed by the immediate view of the Gulf. Beautiful. So don't let the posts about the renovations scare you. It was fine. I will say that I wish this hotel had an inexpensive place to get breakfast and quick snacks / meals... Read more

We stopped in one of the new rooms over looking the bay, not the pool. Rooms very clean and nice. Outside there were signs of maintenance e.g. fencing, painting, tools etc but none of it affected the quality of the stay. If you want a pristine hotel do not stop at one that is under renovation. If you want a very nice hotel, very friendly / helpful staff, good facilities, quiet location excellent views, the the marriott has to be worth a look. I cannot complain about anything about the hotel, th... Read more

First point to make is that it would have been nice to know about the renovations prior to our visit - seeing as though we booked our holiday the Nov/Dec the year before. As a courtesy it would have been nice to have been aware. The renovations themselves didn't necessarily taint our stay as we were put in room 905 and 901 (on the opposite side to the renovations) - we heard the odd banging of a hammer and other than the construction fence falling on our friend by the pool we otherwise didn't no...

Let me start by saying that this Marriott in Sand Key is phenomenal. They are going undergoing construction at this time and it can be a bit loud at times. Really wanted to stay in their newly renovated rooms, but they had none available at the time. All rooms are suites, which were very spacious and consisted of a pullout sofa, microwave, refrigerator, and 2 TV's. Room was very clean. Staff was attentive and friendly. Hotel provides excellent service by offering a free shuttle to take guests ... Read more

Stayed here for a week after doing the theme parks in Orlando for two weeks. On arrival we were allocated a room above the pool, because we wanted a quieter location I asked if another room was available. Mikel at the front desk could not have been more helpful, I looked at two other rooms and settled on one on the ninth floor. This was a refurbished room, much better than the unrefurbed ones, and although the hotel has the builders in we were not disturbed at all. The customer service was outst... Read more

We stayed at the Marriott for ten days travelling as a family of four looking for post Orlando relaxation. We arrived at the Marriott early; well before check in, but were allocated a room immediately and made very welcome by the reception team. We were allocated a newly refurbished room on the seventh floor: the accommodation was pleasing, tastefully decorated and clean. It gave us the benefit of two rooms, one of which housed a fridge and microwave. Both rooms had televisions: always a bonus w... Read more

Let's start with the positive, great service and variety for breakfast. The pool is nice and drinks are strong enough, But, the staff needs to clean up immediately at the pool or the birds take over and need to be controlled. The pool staff didn't seem on par, I got, to go food with no utensils or napkins, they never brought me a drink that was offered while I waited...but the coconut shrimp were tasty. They should have an area for adults only. Rude kids everywhere is not for me and there was no... Read more

A relaxed deck between the hotel pool and the Inter Coastal Waterway. Water is always relaxing. Amanda, the hostess at Kokomo's Tiki, was so helpful in drink and food selections, and that made it even a better experience. Great food and drink. Great service. Great ambiance. Hard to beat this.

Stopped for 3 x nights after flying into Tampa. Easy to get to from the airport. Hotel was excellent with good pool and friendly staff. Breakfast was a bit on the pricey side but a good standard and plenty of it ! Best part was our room with a balcony view over the bay. Watching the boats & birds plus electrical storms from the balcony was great. A great way to unwind at the start of a holiday. Would recommend this hotel.

My buddies and I booked a trip to Florida for a Bachelor Party. This hotel had recent renovations which face lifted the entire property. The pool & bar, lobby, and rooms all felt like we were the first ones to experience the new hotel. The staff went above and beyond. This Marriott is a testament to what you expect as a Marriott branded hotel. From affordable luxury to the the proximity to beach, bars, & restaurants, this made a weekend trip very memorable.

We stayed for 3 nights in early September. Fortunately, they were able to get me into a renovated room with my Platinum Premier status, which was great. Still, it was tough to get the front desk to recognize my Platinum Premier status...not many Marriott's recognize that anyways, but it's always more exciting when they do. The room and furniture was new, but the entire facility was still being updated, including the public areas and the hallways. The lack of a concierge lounge was a little d... Read more

I would not recommend staying here until AFTER the construction is completed. Laying around the pool listing to hammers, big machinery, power tools, etc. is not relaxing. We stayed in a remodeled room, it was very nice. Except the construction noise could be heard in the room. The pool area is under construction.

We visited for a week as part of a two centre stay. We arrived about an hour early and the very pleasant receptionist explained that our room was not quite ready and offered us two vouchers to get a drink whilst we waited. She also stored our luggage whilst we did so. This proved to be the type of caring experience that we had during our visit from all of the staff within the hotel.

My family and I loved our stay at this property. Super cool suites. Balcony had views of the water and the front door had access to the outside with views across the street. We were upgraded to a newly remodeled room and it was so beautiful. It easily accommodated 4 adults and 2 children. Two televisions and a very nice shower. We also spent a couple hours in the lounge and the service was great. The pool was the highlight for our kids. If I make it back to the area this is my place!

I found this to be a wonderful place to stay. Our newly-renovated room was attractive and comfortable - and the view can't be beat. The bed was cozy, the shower was generously-sized, and it was all perfectly located. The pool is easy on the eyes - if a little small - and there's Starbucks in the lobby. The pool-side bar has some tasty items, and the staff is unfailing friendly and professional. This is a great place to be!

There was a fridge, filter coffee machine and microwave, but no kettle, cutlery or crockery, so those hoping to self cater are going to struggle. For a hotel of this standing, proper mugs and a kettle at least would have been amongst the basic equipment expected. There are great restaurants very close by and the location is perfect, with...

While we checked into the hotel we were told how spectacular our room was......never were we told that construction was taking place all around our room. Imagine getting woken up with kids sleeping to drilling and pounding in rooms all around you. Not a fun way to get woken up in the morning. DO NOT STAY HERE! Way overpriced and not worth the money.

Well its year 5 and we are back again and this time to a long overdue beautifully renovated suite !!!! The bathroom has a beautiful walk in shower with a rain shower head. The living area has a great sofa/chaise and the bar area is crisp and clean with a beautiful modern backsplash. New headboards and desk in the bedroom and just refitting things opened it up to a much roomier and comfortable room !! Kudos to the designers for a great design.
