“Still Home away from Hom”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

If you are staying for business or pleasure, I would highly recommend this hotel. I have stayed at several hotels in the Tampa area and there isnt a hotel that is as nice and friendly as this one. More than anything, the whole staff especially the Bellmen, the Sales Staff, and the Front Desk make your stay as comfortable and accomodating as possible. I stay quite often and being greeted and taken care of every morning and night by the extremely nice and accomodating front desk makes that much of a difference. I would personally like to thank Adriana, Justin, Angela and the rest of the front desk for always providing the best hospitatlity and making me feel at home every time I am at the hotel.

Thank you Danny L for the wonderful comments!

The Westin Tampa Harbour Island takes pride in providing extraordinary services to our guests. From the moment you walk through the front door until the time you depart it is our goal to have you feeling better than you did when you arrived! It has been a pleasure to have had you as our guest and we are all truly sad to know that your business in the Tampa area has come to an end.

We certainly hope that your journey in the future brings you back to visit us at your home away from home!

Beautiful view from my room.
Customer service was top-notch! Front desk was always cheerful and helpful; Benny came and fixed out phone and wall safe.
No outlets readily available to charge electronics.
Just a few minor housekeeping oversights - but promptly take care of.
Overall - A great stay. I would recommend this hotel.

Stayed this past weekend at the Westin for 2 nights for girls weekend and from the moment we got there we had a wonderful time. The staff was wonderful and everone we came across was very friendly. On Friday night we enjoyed the complimentary wine and snacks and spent the days at the pool. I had read a few negative things prior to booking such as stained carpets in the hallways etc. but that was so minor. I would go back there again and again. I hated to leave. Thank you for helping create some wonderful memories, your staff is top rated.

We stayed at the Westin Harbour Island for four nights recently. I would definitely stay there again. Our room had a nice view of the water and downtown. The hotel kept the hallways freezing cold. Our room had some noise from the hallway such as doors slamming. Coffee was available in the lobby in the morning and a hot appetizer was provided in the evening – complimentary. The refrigerator in our room did not cool at all. After a call to maintenance, a small refrig was promptly delivered. This one ran constantly and froze all my food. Parking and internet access are an extra fee. You can go in and out of the parking garage without incurring an additional charge. Our room was clean, though not spotless. There were limited TV channels and reception was poor on some of the channels. The hotel staff was very friendly and any problem brought to their attention was quickly rectified.

The service is impeccable. We especially appreciated housekeeping and maintenance.

Room Tip: The views are great, so request a higher floor.

My wife and I stayed there for a weekend trip I had read the trip reports and should have known better. We arrived late and were give our rom keys. Room is OK but hotel really needs a good refurbishment and in fact, they were painting hallways on Saturday morning. Both Friday and saturday nights we were awakened by folks screaming and beating on doors, in fact 3 AM both nights. Not a hotel problem but one would expectbsome quiet on an SPG floor that cost EXTRA. Ate breakfast in the dinignroom. Nice buffet and at $17.95 a better deal than waffles for $17. This just seemed like a old tired Westin that will either be renovated or the flag will be changed to a less prestigious name
