TAMPA, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/28/13 -- When summer rolls around, most people want to look their best in anticipation of beachside vacations, and the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina is no exception. In anticipation of its summer travelers, this 27-floor premier property unveiled a remodeled lobby, restaurants and patio in June 2013. And to make sure everyone can enjoy it, the hotel is offering travelers its sweetest deal of the season: a 25% discount off the best available rate for a three-night (or longer) stay.
Known as the Suntastic Savings promotion, the offer applies to any weekend stay at this downtown Tampa hotel until September 30, 2013. Of course, considering the hotel's luxurious appointments, guests may want to extend their vacations. In addition to the 36 suites and 683 rooms that were recently renovated and feature flat-screen HD televisions and bay or city views, the hotel offers decadently upgraded public spaces. The patio, for example, now beckons guests to its waterfront perch with fire pits, flat-screen televisions and Wi-Fi. The lobby was outfitted with new furniture, while the restaurants -- an onsite Starbucks, Waterside Grill, and Champions Sports Bar -- received careful attention as well. Starbucks, for instance, now boasts Wi-Fi and business-friendly seating, Waterside Grill features new intimate seating arrangements with stunning water views, and Champions entertains diners with flat-screen televisions and sports memorabilia.
Savvy travelers looking for special deals in downtown Tampa will appreciate the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina's attractive location along the Channel Riverwalk. In addition to offering its guests marina access, a rooftop pool and 50,000 square feet of meeting space, this stunning Tampa Bay hotel is also near a variety of attractions, from The Florida Aquarium, to Ybor City (Tampa's own Latin Quarter). And if Busch Gardens, the Lowry Park Zoo, and MOSI aren't enough to fill the days, there's always the quintessential Florida beach to enjoy.
With summer already underway, travelers should book their Suntastic vacations soon. Guests must make their reservations by July 21st in order to take advantage of the promotion. Additional information is available at http://www.marriott.com/hotel-promotions/tampa-marriott-deals.mi.
About Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina
Featuring a prime waterfront location along Tampa Bay, the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina is a luxury hotel with all the right amenities. A newly remodeled patio, for example, overlooks the water and invites guests to cozy up to the fire pits or unwind as they catch a game on one of the recently added flat-screen televisions. Other upgrades from the $2.5-million renovation include new furnishings in the lobby, an onsite Starbucks that boasts Wi-Fi and fresh seating and a sports bar updated with flat-screen televisions and sports-centric décor. The 719 spacious guestrooms and suites are equally inviting with flat-screen HD televisions, bay and city views and, in the suites, a living room, entertaining space and sleeper sofa.

The onsite spa, rooftop pool and pool bar, fitness center, sauna and whirlpool, meanwhile, show visitors what it means to relax. And when guests are ready to dine, the hotel has them covered with its Waterside Grill, Champions Sports Bar and Il Terrazzo restaurants. In addition to being centrally located to downtown Tampa's attractions like Ybor City and the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the hotel offers a handful of unique amenities. Its 32-slip, full-service marina accommodates boating enthusiasts, for instance, while foodies can indulge in organic produce like radishes, carrots and tomatoes grown in the hotel's rooftop garden and prepared in its restaurants.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
