“Reserved for wedding guests - 11 Rooms!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2011

My daughter's wedding was held at a nearby venue and the Weston (near the Tampa airport) was highly recommended for our out-of-town guests. We had special requests for our guests and the staff of the Weston so graciously made sure our requests were fulfilled. The hotel was beautiful, and the guest rooms were great and the staff was so nice and a pleasure to work with. The wedding was perfect!

A special thank-you to Jennifer for all your help and kindness, you made us feel like we were your only guests!

Stayed here for 2 nights for business. The hotel is very close to the airport but a bit far from other restaurants etc. as they are a 10-15 min cab ride. There is a Bahama Breeze down the road with good drinks. Very good business hotel - would stay there again.

This is a newer AAA 4 Diamond near the airport with gorgeous views of the bay. I was promptly upgraded for SPG Platinum status, but not to a suite. One request later, I had my suite. The rooms are just as you would expect in a new Westin. The furnishing, the bed, the towels were all perfect. Views here are wonderful.
The club room was great and I didn't even know this property offered one. The restaurant downstairs seems a little overpriced, but not to worry, the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle to plenty of restaurants and even a nearby shopping mall. We simply walked 2 minutes down the street to Bahama Breeze and had a great meal.
I travel way way too much and tend to be pretty picky and critical especially if a hotel doesn't measure up. The self parking charge is the same as the valet. Given how much parking they have, it seems a little unnecessary, but in this economy it is all about revenue. Overall, this hotel measured up in every way. When I received my bill in the morning I had an overcharge, but that was immediately rectified by the front desk who also emailed two additional folios showing they had corrected the charge. That's more than enough in my book. I'll stay here again without hesitation.

I regularly stay at the Westin Tampa Bay for business and it is an overall nice hotel. It is fairly new, and the Heavenly Beds are extremely comfortable. The fitness room is functional, and the machines have ipod connections which is great. Also has a small indoor swimming pool. The hotel is located close to the airport, at the start of the Courtney Campbell Causeway. As a result, the view from most rooms is good, especially from the odd numbered rooms. Has a Starbucks in the lobby along with the Aqua Bar & Grill restaurant. The staff is very friendly and remembers repeat guests.

The hotel charges $5/nt for parking regardless of whether you self park or valet, unless it's included in your rate.

We stayed one night at this hotel before proceeding to a condo stay on Redington Beach. It was about 10 minutes from the airport. The room was very pleasant with a floor to ceiling window which gave a great view of the bay. In fact, at night we kept the curtain open to fall asleep to such a great view and to be woken up by the sunlight.

The fitness room had more than enough equipment; the indoor pool although somewhat warm was relaxing after the plane ride to Tampa. Breakfast can be had at the Starbucks in the lobby. For dinner we were able to walk to the Bahama Breeze restaurant, almost like an Applebees but with a Caribbean theme. We planned to rent a car the next day for our drive to the Gulf Coast. Didn't see too many other restaurants nearby but down the street by the gated community there was a grocery store for sodas, water, and other things we wanted later on.

Check your bill closely as that favorite scam, charging you for things you didn't get or use from the "refreshment center:" is alive and well at this hotel. Another favorite is "keeping the change" at the restaurant...they don't give you your change unless you specifically ask for it. Of course, alternatively, you can just let them have the change (for any bill more than $10 you'll come out ahead) and leave nothing else for tips.

Be prepared for flooding in the bathroom...the shower stall has an inch gap between the door and the stall, so you'll need all the towels you can get to mop up the flooding. And be careful, especially on night time visits to the toilet - slippery when wet!

Be sure to come up with a porter and have him try on all the in house appliances. I was out of luck as my TV and IHome did not work...no TV, no music, no radio. Complaints met with indifference so insist on the porter testing everything. My "engineer" never did show up.

Wrote all my complaints down, indifference reigned again at checkout. Lady took one look at my notes and you can see the mental shrug!!! I did insist the charges from the refreshment center be dropped. Hope she saw my mental "never again."

Bad service at all points of contact. Surly phone operator, unhelpful front desk staff. The only good point was that it was a newer property. As a spy platinum, I would rate this as one of my most unpleasant stays ever.
