“Superior service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

After a long drive from Orlando, Justin was very accomodating and polite, even at 2:00 in the morning! He was filled with knowledge about the area, and even gave us a room with a great view! (without us even asking!)The location was great and convenient. The hotel itself was clean and safe. This location definitely kept up with the Westin standards. Thank you!

Being an avid Starwood member I try to stay in a Westin or Starwood property whenever possible. Having the opportunity to stay in the Westin in Tampa would usually be a great thing but this property was subpar. It may be renovations or just management but the hotel was dirty, the staff was rude and the rooms were in poor condition with exposed pipes and grime. On top of that they Refused to take my starwood number for my stay.

We stayed here for its close proximity to the cruise pier and stayed a couple of nights before our cruise left. We loved the location which was convenient to many downtown attractions, restaurants etc. We found this hotel to be pretty pricey, but they had a birthday year special going on where you paid the amount of your birthday year on the 2nd night. This saved us a lot of money & allowed us to afford a water view room which was amazing. We really enjoyed the gorgeous views & seeing all the comings/goings of boats etc. We were disappointed that the window didn't open very far (for safety) & there wasn't a balcony so that we could enjoy it even more, but there was a large picture window & it was still very nice. We did a lot of walking from this hotel, along the water & really enjoyed Tampa. The Channelside area is within walking distance or a short trolley/cab ride. The city trolley was easily accessible from the hotel. There was an open-air, outdoor bar very close by where you could have a drink & enjoy the harbour views as well. There was some construction happening near the lobby area but it didn't affect us. We felt that a lot was lacking in the overall decor of the hotel for the price. All the walls were a dull white, with little or no pictures etc. They should add some color, especially in the hallways & in the rooms as it was way too plain & not enough luxury. The bed however was very comfortable. We enjoyed the pool area, but they had a weird indirect way to get to it. It's not a huge area, but felt pretty private & did have a bar & food service available. We asked for a cab to get to the pier, which was less than a mile away & they had someone from the hotel take us for just the cost of a tip or whatever you wanted to pay him. That was really nice! All the people at the hotel seemed very polite and helpful.

Room Tip: Water view rooms are great!

Greetings from the Westin Tampa Harbour Island AnnieMac10_10!

The views from the rooms are a beautiful and allow our guest to enjoy Tampa’s Garrison Channel. While we are an escape from everyday life we are in close proximity of the downtown area which provides a vast array of attractions and easy access to the cruise terminals allowing guests an easy transition to their next destination. Thank you for sharing your experience and we hope your travels bring you back to visit us in the future.

Thank you for choosing the Westin Tampa Harbour Island!

High recommendation for The Westin!
Valet/luggage service was quick and took great care of us, helped us get everything to our room, and was very useful for getting around the Tampa Bay Area.
Thanks Alex!

We were in Tampa for a conference. The day the conference ended checkout was at noon. Unfortunately the conference did not end until noon also. The associate at the desk delayed our checkout to allow us to see the end of the conference.
We had a maintenance issue with our refrigerator. While we were out to dinner housekeeping replaced the unit.
We were very impressed with how responsive and friendly the staff was during our stay.
The beds as always make doing anything but sleep difficult. We ate breakfast one am and were pleased with the quality and quantity of our meal.
The hotel has a great location to downtown and there are many nearby dining choices.
Thanks to Justin for helping us out!

I stayed here for business downtown. Great location on Harbour Island with close proximity to downtown, great walking/jogging paths along the water, and fantastic views. The hotel was nice and modern, but they definitely cut a few corners during construction. The lack of power outlets around the desk was particularly annoying. I could also hear every person walking by my room. That being said, service was good, and I would certainly stay here again.

When we first arrived we were a little disappointed at the state of the hotel. While it was clean the decor and building itself was a bit outdated. Our disappointment was erased rather quickly by the friendly ness and attentiveness of the staff, from the valet to the front desk to the housekeeping staff to the bartender William Jackson at the pool to the Manager on Duty that day and evening 5/19/12. Having been in the service industry myself for more than 3 decades, I was truly impressed with the genuine attentiveness of all the employees we had contact with. That alone warrants another stay at this wonderful hotel!!
