“Looking a Little Tired”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We've stayed here many times, but it had been about two years since our last stay. We arrived very late - 0130, but we were warmly greeted by the night manager and a trainee. Due to my status (Platinum for life in Marriott Rewards) I was given a corner "junior suite" on the 12th floor. We didn't hear any of the noise from the club across the street which was nice. I was given vouchers, valid for two, for continental breakfast on Saturday and Sunday since the concierge club was closed.

We had problems with the lack of hot water, again. It didn't matter if we were showering in the morning, afternoon, or evening - We had to let the water run for at least five minutes to get lukewarm water. Fortunately my husband doesn't like hot showers, so he would shower first and when it was my turn the water was finally hot. The walls of our room had marks on them and the paint just looked dingy, maybe it was the color that caused this. A lot of things in the hotel just looked dated.

We enjoy the pool area, but the deck looks a bit tired and the loungers need to be either cleaned or replaced. They are either dirty or have mold on them. The pool area was clean and the lawn care service was there the morning we were at the pool. The pool is indoor-outdoor and there is a gym adjacent to the pool. It has many pieces of equipment, as well as locker rooms.

We had breakfast one morning in the restaurant. I think the only customers were those who had been given vouchers for the continental breakfast. I liked that as soon as we went back to the buffet area someone came out to cook eggs to order. The buffet had the typical breakfast items. The only disappointment was the taste of the fruit. We had breakfast in the concierge lounge one morning. There was the usual - eggs, oatmeal, pastries, bagels, fruit, yogurt, etc. The attendant in the evening was quite helpful when I was having problems getting the door open. The attendant in the morning cleared our used plates and glasses immediately.

When I checked out I let the front desk clerk know about the hot water issue, and let her know that we had the same issue during our last stay. She was apologetic and said that it does take several minutes to get hot water to the higher floors. That's a terrible waste of water, and I really think it's something other than being on a high floor as we've stayed at other properties on a high floor and never had the hot water issue we've had here at this property.

Staff members were friendly. Parking was free with ample spots. We like the hotel, staff, and pool, but the property does need some renovations, and something needs to be done about the hot water issue.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that doesn't face the club across the street, or get a higher floor.

Green Features: They do have recycling bins, but should have them on each floor in the vending area. They also have shuttles that operate on something other than gasoline.

This was a great stay from before we were even on property through check out. The day of, we called to see if we could check in early and Ann at the front desk went above and beyond to find out if our room was ready for an early check in and called me back within minutes to tell us the room was ready. Upon check in, Ann was able to upgrade us to a fantastic room with plenty of space and a wonderful balcony overlooking the airport. Our kids loved watching the planes take off and land.
The indoor/outdoor pool was much more fun than the standard hotel pool. Our kids spent most of the day swimming in and out of this fantastic pool.
Becky at the concierge lounge went above and beyond as well. She went out of her way to get our kids chocolate milk even though not regularly stocked in the fridge at the lounge. The lounge had evening cookies (which were a treat) and breakfast (which was very enjoyable).
With the lounge closed on the weekends, they offer Marriott Gold/Platinum members free continental breakfast for two (only $2 to upgrade to full buffet, which is well worth the couple of dollars).
Overall, I was very impressed with the service and hotel itself.

In a big city like Tampa there are loads of places to stay overnight. Even after you narrow down your choice by selecting a Hotel near the Tampa International Airport, there are still dozens of choices you can make. But for a clean, comfortable room at a reasonable price with all of the amenities that a hotel offers The Marriott Westshore is my choice and it is the efficient friendly staff that makes the difference. They offer a "drive and fly" option which enables you to leave your car at the hotel for short stays and take their free shuttle to and from the airport.

We loved that they had a free shuttle from the airport. We only stayed one night there before our cruise but we loved it. The rooms were nice the food was excellent and the pool and gym were just as nice. The drivers of the shuttles were also very nice. All around great staff and great place. The only down side was that our room faced the strip club across the street and having 2 kids in our room was difficult due to the noise, shouting, and police that were all so loud outside.

I liked the great service and big rooms. Outside pool and terrace. Very nice executive louche. Courtesy hotel shuttle within 2m distance is provided (e.g. the huge mall 1.2m away). I would return any time again.
