“AWESOME BAY VIEW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

We visited the Westin Tampa Bay and stayed on the Club Floor. This Top Notch Hotel had awesome view of the Tampa Bay from the room. Rooms were immaculately clean, breakfast buffet was very good. Food was hot and numerous choices to choose from. Easy access to Clearwater Beach. Although there was no outdoor pool, Indoor pool was very nice, clean, as well as work out room. All staff members we encountered were extremely courteous, pleasant and helpful. We had a really nice weekend and would like to return to spend a long weekend in the near future.

Stayed for a few days on business. OK but expensive for what it is.
Positives
- Clean and bright
- helpful staff
- comfy rooms
Negatives
- Location is not as nice as it looks as it's bang next to the freeway and the beach is not great
- Bar not open after 10:30 (can't remember the last time I was in a hotel where that happened !)

Room Tip: Pick a high room to maximise the view and minimise the Freeway noise

Spent a night there back in late April. I usually stay at the Hilton near the airport but got a good rate. Room-modern with outstanding view of the water. The beach was great for a game of catch with the boys. Pool was nice but indoors. Quick in and out to Tampa Westshore, Clearwater Beach or AIrport. My new preferred hotel in Tampa.

Room Tip: Ask for water view-worth every penny

Took a weekend off from everything and got a suite with a nice view here. The bed was amazingly comfortable, the linens were clean and crisp, but the overall cleanliness left a lot to be desired. There was dust on the lampshades and lamp "arms". The shower floor tiles were dirty and/or had seen better days, as well. The carpet was not clean. My biggest complaint about this hotel was the room service food. We ordered breakfast and when it finally arrived, it was cold and not very good. I did like the Sunday late check-out, but next time we need a weekend away, we'll probably try another hotel.

We spent one night at the Tampa Airport Westin when we were en route from Albany to a vacation south of Tampa. This Hotel has two primary clienteles – a business clientele during the week, and weddings and other celebrations on the weekends. This is a beautiful and perfectly adequate hotel for fulfilling its primary missions. We stayed on the 8th floor and had an absolutely spectacular view of a large expanse of water on the other side of the road from the hotel. We came in late at night, and appreciated being able to buy snack food such as candy bars at this late hour. This was made possible by the “shop” being open 24 hours, in which you take what you need and pay for it by the honor system.
We ate breakfast late the next morning in the hotel. We took advantage of a special continental breakfast offer that was open on this Sunday until 3 PM. The pastries were really delicious – a step up from the usual cinnamon rolls etc. The fruit offering was less successful, being freshly cut but tasteless. I appreciate the fact that the hotel restaurant is kept open for a large number of hours for its guests, even though I cannot imagine that this is a profit-making part of the hotel. We were not there for an evening meal, but I rather think that one would go to the Chart House across the street (and visible from our room) rather than the to hotel restaurant.
The hotel is conveniently located right on a main thoroughfare and just minutes from the Tampa Airport. We would readily return should we need another overnight stay in Tampa.

I've stayed at this property multiple times. I am a SPG Platinum member and this is the only property that never has upgrades. The usual line of we are fully booked and it's a busy time of the year.
The executive lounge is small and it's offering is minimal and disappointing. The Aqua restaurant is the only restaurant on the property and is ordinary, also food is not served at the water/beach area overlooking outdoor restaurant area.
Only Tampa Bay hotel with no outdoor pool, only an indoor pool. There is also an indoor hot tub but it was not working when I tried it. The outdoor beach area is small for such a big hotel, lounge chairs are fully occupied and even some non-guest can drive up and use the beach area and lounge chairs (no hotel staff is there to check).
Their self-parking spaces are limited, and yes valet is offered but self is more convenient for in and out of the hotel.
There are two elevators and the third is around the corner and does not have a floor display so your luck to wait for either elevators bays.
Positive items include Starbucks in the lobby, a small retail store for quick beverages in the lobby and a quick check-in process.

I would rate this a 4 star property at best.

I got to copy this shower design. Someone actually spent time putting the heavenly shower in a tile enclosure that has very nice design. Ok beyond the shower, the room was standard Westin and comfortable. The room and shower where clean. Staff at the front desk were helpful and friendly. Amble parking out front for those prefer to park it yourself. Valet is available. Right on the bay with a beach. Will stay here again.
