“Excellent Waitstaff at Hotel Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

I was dining alone at breakfast and my waiter, Steve Tassi, was extremely efficient, friendly and helpful. He was more than willing to provide some history on the area but more importantly for me he provided some good shopping hot spots. Excellent waiter!! I enjoyed chatting with him during my breakfast.

The front desk staff was also very friendly and efficient. The hotel is undergoing some renovations but our room was clean and met our needs. It had a beautiful view.

I was in town for business and decided to stay the night at the Westin on Harbour Island. The property itself was updated and nice with a great view, but the staff is really where this property excelled. Everyone was so accommodating and helpful, especially Craig. I would definitely return.

We stayed at The Westin Tampa Harbour Island Hotel the night before our NCL Cruise from Tampa because it was very close to our pier and made our cruise even more enjoyable.We didn't have to worry about getting to the boat in time and even though we had our car for transportation ,we could have taken a shuttle to the boat if needed,The accomodations were excellent ans we would go back there again on our next cruise from Tampa

We (2 parties of 2) only stayed here one night....had a king bed room with a lovely view of the water and shoreline. We found the personnel to be very helpful and courteous. Although we did not request the same floor, they did do some jockeying to keep us together.

This hotel is undergoing some renovations....new carpet etc...and we received 2 letters letting us know what areas were being updated. The hotel is looking a little worn so the updates are timely.
Self parking was $17.00 per day which I thought was excessive.

We had breakfast in their restaurant with the usual buffet or menu ordering. Our waitress was especially helpful and cheerf

Room Tip: Ask for a water view

This hotel was a little tricky to find due to one way roads. However in our driving around, we found a parking lot around the corner for $5 flat rate (no matter how long the stay) as opposed to $20/night parking at hotel. Fantastic! The location of this hotel is ideal, we were there for a concert and this was a 5 minute walk. There wasn't much else around though, the one shopping area at the cruise port was a disappointment (although it was neat to see the cruise ship so close up). We walked around for quite a while and didn't find anything of interest to do.
The room we got was great, we had a nice view of the harbour. The bed was super comfortable but very high. The bathroom was fine. The restaurant was expensive so we did not eat there. There is a Starbucks and a sports bar just down the road in front of the arena. The sports bar was great (Champions).
All in all, a nice hotel and a great location if you can get it for a decent price and eat elsewhere!

The rooms have updated furniture but the walls, elevators and other parts of the hotel need to be updated. Everything cost you money here. Wifi, parking, the business room, everything you want will clost extra.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel because it was convenient to the Tampa Bay Times Forum for a Lightning Game. It was a maximum 10 minute walk in a very nice neighbourhood.

Our first experience was a very nice valet employee who took our car and directed to to a very nice front desk receptionist. Our check-in was very quick.

Our room was very nice with the typical Westin style - nice bathroom and very comfortable king-size bed. Our view was the canal and we watched a coupld of cruise ships depart and many rowing teams practicing.

There is some minor work going on there right now which did wake us up fairly early the next morning. We were warned in advance of this and it wasn't a huge inconvenience.

Overall a good experience and wold stay there again if lucky enought to be in Tampa again in the near future.

Room Tip: Ask for canal view if you like water views which I prefer.
