  • We had a wonderful experience with the Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk Hotel and their entire staff and I would highly recommend choosing this venue. Paul Sparks their Wedding Specialist took care of us from beginning to end. He answered every question, was very responsive to any need we had took care of every detail of our big day and helped us right through until the day of the wedding right up until the end of our event at 11:00 PM. The hotel rooms are nice, the hotel ballroom is beautiful and overlooks the water which made for spectacular sunset and evening pictures. We had breakfast for our guests the following morning in a private room. The entire staff at the hotel took care of any request that we had.

  • From the start, my husband and I knew we wanted to have our wedding at one location where we could hold both the ceremony and reception so that we did not need to transport guests from one spot to the other. The location of the Sheraton is convenient to most everything in South Tampa, but keep in mind that it is busy as it is downtown. There was a Lightning game the night of our wedding, but we just made sure to tell our guests to leave a little early to account for the extra traffic. As for the look of the venue, if you are shooting for an evening ceremony/reception, there really isn't a better spot than the Sheraton to view the Riverwalk at night. The whole river is lit up beautifully, and UT across the river look gorgeous at night as well. The food at the Sheraton was also fantastic, and their drink package had great options as well. The best part about the whole experience was working with the wedding coordinator Paul Sparks. I really cannot say enough fantastic things about Paul a... Read more

  • This was the perfect place for our wedding - it had ceremony space, cocktail hour and reception space. The catering was easy and they honestly are very hands on and help with everything. Paul Sparks, the planner throughout the process and day of planner was amazing. He helped make our day awesome! I honestly don't know that I would have changed anything. The hotel was great and also helped make sure we had a wonderful time/stay. Highly recommended!

  • We had a destination wedding in Tampa & we both wanted something on the water but in the city. Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk was PERFECT. The Riverview Room was gorgeous for our ceremony & the Riverwalk Ballroom had awesome water views along with a giant dance floor for our guests. The food was great, the service was INCREDIBLE but Paul Sparks was a true standout! He was so easy to work with, especially as a we were having a destination wedding. He pulled off the perfect day for us, and his recommendations for other vendors were so great.

    Thank you Tara so much for your kind words! It was a pleasure having you and your family celebrate here with us. We hope you and Steven have a fantastic and successful first year of marriage and look forward to having you back with us for your anniversary.

  • It was really wonderful to have the ceremony in the room overlooking the river and to have a cocktail hour outside by the pool . Invited quest did not have to travel any distance since they could walk a few feet into the reception. Having everything in one location cut down on the travel and anxiety on such a great day. Having Paul Sparks as the contact and event planner also saved on hiring another outside event planner. everything was perfect thanks to him and his team.

  • We planned our wedding in Tampa, FL from Washington, DC and we had ZERO problems. From scheduling the tasting to room block to communication with vendors- Paul and his team does it all. The only outside vendors we had to coordinate were flowers for centerpieces and decoration, photographer, and DJ. Everything else was provided by Sheraton! I priced many, many venues in the Tampa area and I guarantee you will not find a better place for the value, especially in the Downtown area. Many other places were going to cost us double what we ended up spending at Sheraton, and I guarantee we wouldn't have had the experience we had for our wedding.

    Thank you Samantha for your kind words! We are happy that you were pleased with everything. Sometimes it is difficult planning a wedding from out of town, but we a happy to hear we made it easier for you. We look forward to having you back next year to celebrate your one year anniversary. Best wishes for a happy and successful first year of marriage!

  • We considered the Sheraton Riverwalk based on the reviews I read on-line at various Wedding / Travel sites praising Paul Sparks, the Catering and Wedding Specialist at the Sheraton. When you book an event as important as a Wedding and the Reception, there is always apprehension. You just hope things go as planned and promised. Paul's reviews could not have been more accurate. I am here to confirm that everything we read about Paul was true. He was incredible! Paul has been in the business for decades and was there every step of the way with patience and honest advise. We did not need a Wedding Planner, he was our Wedding Planner! The day of the event, he arrived first thing in the morning and stayed well past midnight. Everyone had a blast thanks to Paul and his top notch Catering and Bar Staff. Regarding the accomodations, from the Valet guys, the Bellmen, Front Office, Housekeeping and the Restaurant / Bars, everyone was a Pro. Our guests raved about how friendly and ser... Read more

  • We had our daughter's wedding on 2-17-18. The whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. Paul Sparks was wonderful to work with. He answered all of our questions and provided an awesome tasting for us. The day of the wedding went smoothly. Our guests raved about the food. The venue was absolutely beautiful! If your looking for a venue overlooking the water with a beautiful view this is the place for you!

    Thank you Carissa for your kind words! Great food and great fun is important to us with our weddings. We are happy to hear you had a great time. Thanks!

  • My wife and I were looking for a venue that truly represented Tampa. After visiting numerous locations, we settled on the Sheraton Riverwalk. Not only did we think it was going to give us the most bang for our buck, but we loved several other factors too. The University of Tampa is nearby, the Riverwalk is gorgeous at night, and finally Downtown Tampa has so many things for our guests to do. We loved that the cake was included with the price, and that there were several different bar package options (I was even able to get some beer besides your normal bud, bud light, Henieken choices). The food is also phenomenal! I can’t tell you how many times my Uncle has told me since the wedding that the London Broil was some of the best he has ever had. My Dad also can’t stop talking about the Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken and the sauce that came with it. I am pretty sure he wants to buy the sauce in bulk from the Sheraton. What really made the Sheraton the best choice though was Paul. From t... Read more

  • We were looking for a place downtown to have our reception, and the Sheraton is by far one of the best places to have your wedding downtown. The view is beautiful especially when the sun is setting and of course at night. Paul Sparks assisted us every step of the way. He is very professional and replies quickly to questions/concerns. His attention to detail is phenomenal and is a quality extremely important for weddings! Thank you Paul for your service!! We also got the Gelato Carte and our guests really loved it!

  • When we booked this hotel for our wedding night, we had intentions of using the room for the groomsmen to get ready in the day-of, however, they wouldn’t allow for early check-in which was extremely frustrating. They were rude over the phone and their customer service was poor. The room photo online looked nothing like what we got (we got something much smaller) and when we addressed this with them in-person they basically said they “advertised all their suites using the same pic online which was really their ‘upgraded suite’” which was super deceiving. We thought we booked a true suite when in reality we got an overpriced room with a couch. The water for the shower was luke warm at best and there was a wedding onsite the day we stayed so we weren’t even able to use their facilities like the pool or outside deck. I do not recommend staying at this hotel.

  • We are thoroughly disappointed and regret booking this venue for our wedding. On the wedding weekend, we arrived at the Sheraton to find the regular housekeeping staff were not working and the Sheraton’s method of handling this was to mandate “eco” service. Our guests did not receive clean towels or linens (basic services). The hotel offered a $10/night credit, which is insulting. They refunded some additional money to guests later; but that is no substitute for basic service. The venue promised to hand out welcome bags (for a fee), that contained, among other things, the custom-designed weekend schedule. When the first guests arrived and did not receive the bags, we followed up with the front desk, which promised they would be delivered to rooms. They delivered fewer than 5, and would not give them to guests when they checked in (despite having a list), nor deliver the rest of the bags despite being asked at least twice more to do so (and promising to handle it). We worked wit... Read more
