This is a 70's style Marriott hotel however the rooms have been
nicely updated with new furnishings and luxurious beds that pretty much guarantee a great nights sleep. Beyond that this is a basic Marriott experience. Location is great for the airport but not much else. If you are a light sleeper ask for a room as far away from the elevators as possible!
I'm a gold member with Marriott so I get upgraded to the Concierge Floor. The Concierge Lounge was nice but kept very dirty. The Concierge that works in the evening is a piece of work! I told him I wanted a good local steakhouse for dinner and he tells me Tampa doesn’t have one. He said he is Tampa's BEST Concierge and the ONLY good steak restaurants in Tampa are Ruth’s Chris and Timpano's. Someone needs to by this Concierge a Zagget book! Tampa has many great Steakhouses plus a world famous Steakhouse called Bern's with the largest private wine list in the world!!! You would think the The Best Concierge would mention that. I asked him if he would be putting out the alcohol and he said he doesn’t do that in his lounge because he likes to take a lot of smoke breaks and doesn’t want the alcohol out when he has to leave. I usually stay at the Marriott downtown and they always have a nice display of liquor, beer and wine for guest to serve them self’s hints the name HONOR BAR. This sentiment was felt not only by me but other traveling companions and we will not be returning to the Marriott Westshore. We like to stay where we feel appreciated and not degraded. There are several better, newer and friendlier hotels in that area that welcome guest and we will be pursuing those options on our next quarterly visit to Tampa.
