Loved this hotel. It is a nice resort on its own with a Starbucks, a nice dining room, a wonderful breakfast place and outdoor eating as well. Cross the street to go to the expansive beach near the Sheraton (public beach) where you can rent chairs for the day so no need to bring them. That is 35 dollars.

Loved this hotel. It is a nice resort on its own with a Starbucks, a nice dining room, a wonderful breakfast place and outdoor eating as well. Cross the street to go to the expansive beach near the Sheraton (public beach) where you can rent chairs for the day so no need to bring them. That is 35 dollars. Breakfast runs about 20 each in the hotel. We had crab Benedict and it was fabulous with a crab cake. The Starbucks is a Marriott one but can make most drinks. There are a few items for sale there like toiletries and snacks. More items are in the Sheraton stores across the street. They have the typical hotel shop with clothes, magazines, more that you might want. Back to the hotel, it is suites with one side being an intracoastal view from the bedroom side and the other view is sky scrapers and a small view of the beach but lots of blue sky and beauty. Really a lovely area. Just past this is a nice residential area with places to eat as wel. If you have ever enjoyed Columbia restaurant (Spanish) then you can visit it next door but reservations are suggested. Waterfront views. You can rent a jet ski for 200 dollars. There is another restaurant called Backwater that is on the next block and we had a superb dinner there, also waterfront. Lots of little shops in walking distance for a less pricey breakfast or for some cute clothes (not junky ones, brands like Salt Life, Vineyard Vines and Tommy Bahama). Great place to enjoy. Highly recommend. We were there July 4th and watched about 20 sets of fireworks from our balcony (at a distance but lovely). Thank you to Christopher at the front desk who helped us out on July4th morning when we decided spur-of-the-moment to stay at this great spot. Very nice server in the breakfast place too on July 4th (sorry I forgot her name) but she had lots of local info and info about the area. Read less

We recently stayed at the Marriott Suites on Sand Key and we had a blast! Although, it was a short trip we had a great time. We decided to celebrate my birthday in Clearwater and picked this property. We have never stayed here before but have heard great reviews, one thing I personally like about this property is that its got a great view no matter which room you get, its got a balcony, allowing you to open it and let some fresh air circulation in your hotel room. With the Covid-19, I was worried about being in a confined building, but at Marriott Sand Key you don't have to worry about this. the hotel is following safety measures which includes elevators with limited capacity, as well as the pool. Masks are required. The front desk staff including the bellman are really friendly and attentive. The rooms are a good size but I wish the beds are bigger, its still really comfortable though. The Trolley is available till 10pm, although we didn't use this service. Lastly, we love that its within walking distance to the Columbia Restaurant. Thanks for a wonderful accommodation. Read less

We have the best times at the Marriott at Sand Key, Florida. Chris Rose and Jennifer Allen and Eric are like family to us. We stay every year for our Anniversary in December. We just stayed there this past week for my Birthday celebration on June 11th 2020 - June 14th 2020. They always are very welcoming and friendly they go out of their way to make sure we are happy and have whatever we need! Mimoza cleans our room and has been there for many years. She is also very accomadating and friendly. We live in the Clearwater, FL area and can't think of any other place we would rather be. You have the Intercoastal and Ocean View suites. Living room, bedroom and bathrooms are always very clean. Good place to see the Sunrise and the Sunsets. The restaurant Watercolours and the tiki bar Kokomos also has excellent service and food. Has the best steak in the whole area! Thanks again for always making our time there so enjoyable and relaxing! 3> : ) Teresa, Greg Kearns and family. Our favorite room is 507. Read less

We stayed here for 5 days. We enjoyed our stay very much. Best bartender ever was Melissa out at the pool bar. We arrived on Thursday and I saw that girl hustle her butt off by herself when the place was very busy on Thursday and Friday night. Not only was she the only one behind the bar but she was also going around the pool deck bringing drinks out and taking food orders. Not once did I see her get flustered!! She was so nice!! What an excellent job she did!! I give her 5 stars!!!! The pool was a little cold for us but that’s just because we’re sissy’s and live in Florida. The only negative thing I could say is they should pressure wash the waterfall. When my husband was squirting the water gun and the waterfall was not working black junk was falling in the water. Also hope they get the hot tub fixed. The older man that works at the front door was super nice and friendly. My grandkids loved Lisa the bird. Rooms were big and nice. You can rent jet skis right at the hotel which weren’t very expensive. Read less

Awesome stay, beautiful hotel!! Shoutouts to bellman Wilmer, front desk Jennifer, engineering Keith & Mickey. Dinner restaurant is fabulous, even with a limited menu, and offered a very safe dining experience. We were treated like royalty on my birthday weekend. Totally coming back!
