“Impeccable service, even in the early months!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2010

I know this is long overdue, but I felt like I had to review this wonderful hotel! The staff members at the Westin Tampa are what make this place stand out to me. Pardon the absurd length of the review :-)

The first time I stayed at the hotel, it was actually for a photography shoot, in preparation for my wedding day. Because the hotel was pretty much brand new, it was fairly empty. The manager personally came to show the photographer and me almost the entire premises! The bar was really chic, and fun to hang out in.... amazing colorful pictures. The "beach", is a great place to soak in the sun... but only during the early moments of the day! The beach faces due east, so once the sun falls behind the hotel itself, you're sitting in the shade. It also faces the causeway... so the sight and sound of cars are not far away. Nonetheless, you have beautiful clearwater beach not too far away, so don't decide on the hotel based on the beach. My favorite aspect of the hotel is, by far, the terrace. It has the most amazing sunset views!!!!!!! Got great pictures there. Perfect perfect perfect for outdoor receptions of any kind!

My husband and I were married nearby (last August, mind you... we were thinking of using the Westin and the terrace, but it was not open at the time yet and didn't want to risk it. Boy if I knew then what I know now) and had a bayview suite the whole day (for preparation and the night stay). With the hotel being new, I was quite afraid that the service would be sub-par. However, it was the complete opposite! The staff did everything they could to make my bridesmaids and I have the perfect environment in preparation for the big day. They brought up extra robes for all the girls extra coffee, and wine glasses for us. A concierge came up at least twice to make sure that everything was taken care of for us.

The night of, we ordered room service. It, as expected, was quite expensive, but fairly good. We just needed something to eat as we were so busy at the wedding we barely had anything!

Hope this helps. If you have any further questions about the Westin not hesitate to ask! Although it is secluded from the rest of Tampa (which some people would see as a plus) I highly recommend it for its proximity to the airport, and its service!

Great view of Tampa Bay. Nice staff. Nice gym. The rooms were SUPER QUIET, nice, clean and have a huge window with nice blackout curtains. Large flat screen TV. Starbuck's on site. Pool is indoors and not so inviting due to the chlorine smell, they should have a salt water pool. The private beach is not great. This is not a resort, it caters to business travels and it feels like it. If you traveling with a car (free parking) and can leave the hotel for meals this might work for you. We just wanted a nice, quiet room with a great view...the price was right, $111, so this Westin was perfect for us.

Overall the hotel was very nice. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff gave excellent service and the restaraunt was good. Location was convenient.

The biggest drawback was the so called "private" beach. What they really should have said was privately owned beach. It was very small, right off the highway, and fully visibly to thousands of commuters as they drove by. Huge disappointment!

Though not as luxe as the usual Westin, my room was perfectly fine. Nicer than 3star holiday inn type hotel but not quite the posh 4 star. Bed was comfy. You have to pay for wireless access. Business center computers did not work.

As someone who spends 14 nights per month in hotels all over the world, The Westin, Tampa Bay was a big disappointment. the hotel does have nice beds, but that is where it ends. For the price of the hotel, there are MANY options in the area with better amenities. We specifically picked this hotel for the private beach, but were disappointed to find it is on a murky tidal canal. I would NOT get in that water!

Internet was NOT included in the room rate. This must be one of the last hotels in the country that still charges for internet. If the cleaning staff got to your room by 4pm you were lucky!


There are many options in the immediate area, that are more affordable and accommodating to patients at the Laser Spine Center, Tampa.
