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. If guests visit for work, the headquarter hotel's recently updated 50,000 square feet of meeting space and three concierge levels are designed to accommodate any business-related need. 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. The Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina, in other words, is at once universally appealing and unlike anything else around.
