I am not sure this can be redeemed, but we have 5 nights to see. I pride myself on giving fair reviews and try to be balanced. I normally wait to share my thoughts, but I am not really looking forward to 5 nights here. It seems from reading other reviews that there are some themes to be found. I... More

The hotel as a whole is very uneven property. Parts of the room were renovated, bathroom and some tile, but other areas were old. One big no-no for me was the lack of a curtain to block out sun. Morning came early. The screen in place of a curtain was a BAD decision. No fire alarm in room. Furniture and... More

Spent a few days at the Crowne Plaza Westshore Tampa in Nov 2014. The hotel was very comfortable. There are cabana rooms for larger parties, but I stayed in a single room in the main tower. I cannot comment on the cabanas, but the single rooms are spacious and comfortable. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was very... More

I ended up staying at this hotel by booking a Hotwire hot rate on a 4 star hotel located in the Westshore Tampa area; the hotel name was only revealed after I booked. I must say that I felt somewhat deceived because the hotel is not actually a 4 star hotel, even though it is marketed by Hotwire as such.... More

This small hotel is nicely located to downtown and only a 15 minute drive to the theme parks. It is not walking distance to much of anything, but you can get to the Harbor Area by going to the other end of Kennedy about 6 miles. The rooms are nicely appointed, but only the third floor has bathtubs, so if... More

Great room, the only downside to it was that it was very humid, but I know that Tampa is extremely humid all the time so that's understandable. Very quiet, nobody bothered, spend 5 days there preparing for my medical board.
