“Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore-does the job”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

I was in Sarasota FL for two nights on business on my way back to the BVI from Connecticut, but realized I had a 6AM flight out of Tampa the next morning. Rather than drive 1.5 hours and have to hassle with the car return at 4 AM in the morning, I decided to stay the last night in Tampa instead,and return the car the evening before. Booked on line, and there was no problem getting a room for the last night in FL at the last minute. The hotel was easy to find just off the highway, and about 10 minutes from the terminals at the airport. They have a courtesy shuttle which was handy when I wanted to return my car and then go back to the hotel for the evening. Staff was courteous when checking in and handling the bags. Got upgraded to an Executive Floor or whatever the buzzword was as a result of being a InterContinental Ambassador Platinum Member (well worth the cost in my opinion). Room was very nice and comfortable. Got in around 8:30PM and was exhausted so ordered room service when I was in the lobby and my bags were being delivered to the room. Again, staff very accommodating. Nothing was missing from the room service tray and the food was good. Not fine dining, but I was hungary and this hit the spot. Although perhaps the smallest can of Coke Zero I have ever seen (note to Beverage Manager:spring for the 12 oz can for your guests.) Bed was comfortable, and bath was modern and very clean. Towels were of quantity and plushness you would expect from a Crowne Plaza. Soundproofing was good and did not get disturbed by the planes or traffic on the road out front. The fact is that the entire room was modern, very clean, and everything worked, which has not always been my experience in Florida. All in all for the one night, the hotel was convenient, the staff friendly, the room comfortable and the food good. Brief but good stay at the Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore.

Room Tip: Sign up for the Ambassador Program with Priority Club and spring for the Platinum Membership if you...

We enjoyed this hotel. Nice room and comfortable bedding. The hotel is close enough to walk to good restaurants including P.F. Changs. The hotel shuttle will also take you to the International Plaza which has a great outdoor venue as well as excellent dining and shopping.
The breakfast that we enjoyed the next morning was very good. The hotels also has on an onside Starbucks which was very convenient. The location was in a business district which made quiter experience versus being on the strip with a lot of noise.

This recently renovated mid-range hotel had a five star appeal. We recently hosted a wedding rehersal dinner for our son / daughter-in-law for a group of 50. The service combined with a great room rate, flexable accomadations and the atmosphear of a casual yet modern outdoor lounge area, made this event a smashing sucsess. The food was delicious and the Italian family style theme ( our request ) was warmly received. The event Planner Ms. Thai Terakulsatit, was a pleasure to work with and the location was easily accessable for all the guests from both in and out of town. We highly recommend the patio suites. All the rooms were nice and we will return when our next trip to Tampa occurs.

We stayed the night before a cruise out of Tampa, and we loved the room...only complaint was no room darkening curtains?

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us. We are pleased you had a great stay but apologize for the shades in the room. Our guest rooms do have 2 shades, one allows some light in and the other is for complete darkness and privacy. We hope you had a great vacation and look forward to seeing you in the future.

I was a guest earlier this week (Christmas week) at this hotel -- it is nicely located right near I-275, I-4, and Tampa Airport. The staff was most professional and helpful, and all acted to ensure my visit was excellent. They have a nice pool, nice lobby, excellent on-premise restaurant, and free parking, with easy access. The room was very comfortable, and the bed was excellent -- I slept like a baby both nights. I have stayed here over the past three years, and will return again when circumstances permit.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite -- off peak pricing is excellent.

Stayed for weekend-had room overlooking Tampa Bay-clean and nicely decorated. Convenient free parking. Did not use pool but it looked clean and had nice patio area surrounding it. Front desk personnel very helpful and professional-definitely an asset to the hotel. Bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast buffet was okay-nothing special.

Had a very nice stay this weekend at the Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore. I would recommend this hotel to others.

Pros: Close to major highways, many dining and shopping options. Rooms were clean, well appointed, and they had premium cable. Very close to Clearwater Beach (appx 30 minute drive).

Cons: Walls are thin. Could hear next door neighbors conversations, when the people in the next room turned on the shower and flushed the toilet, elevator bell (even though it was down the hall and around the corner), and other hotel doors closing. No refrigerator.
