Whenever I'm in Tampa I stay at the Crowne Plaza on Kennedy. Joe the GM runs a great hotel and his staff is excellent. It's very convenient to everything and the staff is very friendly and make you feel at home and they handle any request quickly and efficiently. It's very clean and well appointed. The service is outstanding and... More

Several staff of my company stayed in this hotel for a conference Jan. 11-13. I was on the 4th floor. Hotel was clean and comfortable, staff was friendly and shuttle service was quick to/from the airport as well as local malls and restaurants. We had our conference in the business rooms and the staff were wonderful about keeping the area... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for one night in late December. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly, and our room was clean and comfortable. Because we flew to Tampa and had several delays along the way, we decided to eat a quick meal and have a drink at Mojitos before going to bed. The... More

This Hotel is listed as a 3.5 star hotel on most travel sites. The rooms are very small and the hotel is old and one can see that. The closet is tiny, and I could not imagine spending a long vacation there. Although it has been pretty well maintained, and has a very nice outdoor area in the back by... More

Great service, near to two decent malls, a movie theatre and some restaurants. Rooms were good sized and clean. Only complaints, the Mojito Bar staff were a bit cold, and the machines in the weight room need some maintenance.

Stayed on the 10th floor at this property for one night. Free parking is a plus, restaurant and bar on the property another plus. The room we had was a handicap room, rather small, but okay. The building appears to be old but well maintained. The staff was pleasant and helpful through out the hotel. It is close to the... More

Recently hosted business meeting at this location. Very close to Tampa International Airport and both Westshore Mall and International Plaza. Westshore is in walking distance and offers plenty of dinner options (Maggiano's, PF Changs Three Palms, Grill 52). The hotel staff and facilities were very good. The guest rooms were decorated in a black/gray/white theme (think West Elm). The suites... More

During this stay, the rooms were cleaner and the noise was down. The bar service with Misty was top notch and noted! Everything about the establishment seemed to be better maintained including the service and food (although one of the lifts was out of service during the entire stay).

My stay at the Tampa Westshore Crowne Plaza was very enjoyable. I was there from 11/13-11/16/12. My room was very spacious. The room was kept clean. The bar (Mojitos) had a great happy hour with good drink and food specials, I liked being able to sit outside. The staff was courteous and helpful.

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza while in Tampa on business for a week, and was very pleased with the accomodations as well as the staff. The room was quite comfortable, with WiFi and HDTV. I was a little disappointed in the channel lineup (no Comedy Central?) but the picture was excellent. At one point the TV lost signal on... More
