Me and my wife just got back from a weekend at the Westin Tampa Bay. We actually live locally and decided to stay there just to get away from the house for our first anniversary. We were greeted by a friendly valet and front-desk staff upon arrival. Upon check-in we were informed that we were the lucky SPG (Starwood Preferred Guest) guest of the day and that we were going to receive a free upgrade to a bay view Suite instead of the bay view Deluxe room we had reserved. The suite had a great view and was extremely clean with modern decor. This was the first hotel we've stayed at with LCD televisions that actually had HD TV stations! Most other's we've stayed in have the HD TVs but all standard-definition stations. We valeted the car the first night as we weren't aware there was another option. The next day we realized you can self-park for free which we ended up doing the second night. Valet for the first night only cost $7 but the self-parking lot was right outside the entrance so it didn't make sense for us to valet. We would definitely stay here again. The location is great if you want to be close to Tampa, Clearwater, St. Pete, and the local airports!
