“Metrocon Convention”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We stayed at the Westin this past weekend. The staff was efficient and friendly. Our maid was great and I feel she especially did an excellent job. The proximity to the Tampa Convention Center was a bonus, just a short walk across the bridge. Both times I went to the pool (outside) there was only 1 other person. The workout room was also empty. I would definitely stay here again.

Came for concert at the fairgrounds which was an easy cab ride away. Big urn of flavored waters in the lobby, delicious! Good selection of wines by the glass in the bar from a bartender who has worked there almost 30 years so very knowledgeable about the area. Room had a pretty view of the harbor. Sort of smelled musty when we arrived but went away quickly. Good cold air conditioning. Nice breakfast but too expensive. $18 for omelet! Don't like buffets which was $19 and think they want to gear you towards that with the price. Free coffee in the lobby so that was a nice touch. Close walk to downtown area.

Room Tip: Ask for view of harbor.

Tito's warmhearted personality summed up the great hospitality that we experienced during our stay. He went out if his way to make sure that our experience was above and beyond what we expected. We felt more than welcomed and cared about under his leadership and ability to take ownership of every situation concerning our stay here.

We stayed here for the 4th of July holiday and it was fantastic! When trying to find a hotel to stay at during this trip I worked with Jason Shaheen (Sales Manager). He was very helpful with booking our room and answering any questions I had. The front desk staff was amazing,the property was beautiful, and it was in a great location. After watching the fireworks we had some drinks at the hotel bar. I loved the way it was decorated. It was a great vibe and the bartender was extremely friendly. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to stay for business or pleasure!

Room Tip: The deluxe harbour view rooms have the best view!!

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. I was in Tampa overnight for a business trip. The staff was phenomenal. The bar tender in the resturant/lounge area was very tentative and was able to accommodate my dinner and drink request even though I was coming in shortly before closing. The rooms have beautiful views of the harbor. Rooms were very clean and spacious. As always the bed and pillows were super comfortable. I also went for a run and the valet staff were able to direct me to a good running route around the island. I highly recommend this hotel.

I stayed at the Westin, due to location. I was to have surgery at Tampa General Hospital and wanted to be close. The location was great for all the things you could want to do downtown and I had a great view of the skyline to the west side including the convention center and Tampa General to the east! The room itself was a little weathered and 2 of the lamps were broken. The hotel charges $20 a day for wifi and $17 a day for self parking! They graciously waived the parking fee upon asking, giving me a free pass when leaving the garage. Also they have a complementary shuttle, which was down when I a needed a ride to the hospital and they paid for the cab ride back and forth, without having to ask. Also the room service was very good and the food delicious. I recommend staying at this hotel.
