“The Westin Tampa Harbour Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

I stayed at The Westin Tampa Harbour Island for just a couple of days for a work engagement. I found it to be a nice hotel - quiet, comfortable, nice staff, good location.

I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a downtown Tampa hotel.

We stayed two nights at the Westin on Harbour Island for a quick weekend away and it was wonderful. We have a 14 month old and the staff at the desk was wonderful as I tried to juggle him while checking in, they even have him a gift bag. The rooms are beautiful and quiet and I couldn't have enjoyed the weekend more. Next time we go to Tampa this is where we will stay.

I normally would never review a hotel because I always forget, but the customer service here was so amazing that I had to. I checked in on 8/14 and when I got to my room it felt a little warm. I didn't mind much at first because the view from the window of downtown Tampa was breathtaking. Well 30 minutes later I realized that the AC wasn't working. I called the front desk and 5 minutes later Benny with maintenance showed up. Just my luck the AC was broken. Benny and Mitch from the front desk had me in a new room with the same view in 10 minutes. Benny also took my bags down to the new room and brought my new room key so I wouldn't have to go to the lobby. Mitch provided me with a complimentary breakfast voucher! I was more than pleased with the response from them both I never expected anything else. Well the next morning I had a wonderful email from Todd from the engineering department apologizing once again. After responding to him that my stay was perfect and what a great job everyone did the night before I received another email from Lauren at the front desk informing me that they would be discounting my stay! I'm a very easy going person so the AC/switching room issue was no problem but wow with the response. Very rarely do so many people go out of their way to make customers happy now a days! To all the Westin staff, thank you for an amazing experience! Keep up the good work!

Booked a 2 bedroom for the weekend, but the restroom was having problems. Allen and Harrison (Maintenance workers) spoke to the manager and upgraded us to a suite at no extra cost.

They have a great bar with good food and friendly service.

Walking distance to the Tampa Convention makes it convenient.

Wi-Fi is free only in the lobby, not in your room.

As luxurious as the hotel is, the breakfast is not complimentary. It is my only complaint. Perhaps all the hotels around the area may be like this as well; not sure.

This hotel is definitely top-notch and is everything you would expect from a Westin property. It looks new, everything is super clean, and the staff is very helpful and friendly.

I was there for business, but this place would be even better for a vacation or fun night in the city!! There is all kinds of cool places within walking distance of the hotel.

If you're considering booking this hotel, DO IT you will not be disappointed.

This hotel is nice, clean, reasonably priced. Has an awesome view of city and water. Wish we had a balcony instead of just a window. Pool is small, but we had a great time there, pool bar is convenient. Could not find a place to buy beer or wine around hotel, should have picked up beforehand. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Parking is expensive, even self parking ( almost $20/ day with tax), but I knew that when booking. Overall we had a great time, the area is clean but mostly vacant, I'm assuming because it is downtown and was the weekend and no big events going on. We had a good time.

Will stay here again for sure!
