“Wonderful !!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

My wife and I stayed at your hotel for a short much needed vacation.

We are frequent travelers mostly outside the USA, when traveling we stay mostly in 4-5 star hotels.

Our stay was wonderful. The hotel is located in a peaceful part of the city with easy access to the city center, ideally located in terms of getting about.

Our excellent 9th floor room was large enough for us to relax in without falling over each other, room was very quite, clean, nice décor, average size tub/shower. Complimentary bottled water coffee and tea. The king size bed was comfortable; and plenty of comfy pillows (a must for me!), good room amenities. From our room we had most superb views of the bay.

Valet service was prompt; valet was helpful with travel hints, (see # comments at bottom). During check in front desk personal was attentive and was helpful with travel ideas.

Breakfast buffet was excellent with a good choice of different foods to suit most appetites. Good choice of hot food and plenty of fruit, yogurts. All fresh and tasty.

Coffee and orange juice were offered at table by the friendly waiter, so much nicer than than self serve. Selection was more than ample, the waiter Steve, was polite quick and extremely attentive (a real treasure). My made to order omelet was very tasty.


To summarize
Hotel personal treated us very well, hotel is well maintained clean and very nicely designed, The staff very helpful.

We would recommend this hotel highly.

Thank you

Shay P

Chief Superintendent (Ret)

Room Tip: Chose upper floors with bay view.

Over a year ago, I traveled for business to Tampa and always stayed at this Westin. Recently I went back to Tampa and figured I would stay closer to my client site for convenience reasons. But this week, I went back to visit and stay with this Westin and I can tell you that I was missing out on whats most important and that's feeling like you are at home. It was amazing to see Adriana, Lauren, Winnelle, and Jose. These people really make your stay that much better. I also missed the surrounding area. Nothing beats the Tampa Bay that surrounds this Westin. And the restaurants and other establishments around the Westin were even that much more fulfilling than other areas. And I cant forget that the renovations that the Westin has made make the world of a difference as well. It looks beautiful. A job well done!

As a Platinum member and frequently travel, I work hard to show my loyalty to a hotel, airline, car rental, etc. And in being loyal to them and them receiving my money, I expect to take advantage of benefits accorded to my status. I've decided to start posting everytime I don't get to take advantage of a starwood benefit. This isn't a unique problem, it's pretty common that platinum benefits like Your24 and Suite Upgrades are not honored. Just google it and you will find many travelers with similar experiences. This hotel did not honor Platinum suite upgrade. When I checked in, I asked if a suite was available, the front desk person didn't even say let me check, she didn't glance down on her computer, she just said, no we are pretty full tonight. However, not only is the parking lot empty, it's middle of the week in Tampa (not a busy travel time) and most importantly, I can pull up the reservations site and book a reservation for a Suite right now, for my entire stay (2 days). So they do have suites available, they just don't honor the benefit.

Other than that, hotel seems pretty nice. Situated along the Harbor.

I was very pleased with my stay at the Westin. At check in, Mike went above and beyond ensuring I was comfortable with my stay. The views from the 12th floor are breathtaking, and the beds are heavenly! Whenever I am in Tampa, I will stay here from now on! Thank you!

Stayed at this hotel 2 weeks ago. Was very pleased with the cleanliness and decor. Bed was very comfortable. Hotel was very close to the port and had a free shuttle. Was a little bit of a struggle to find options for dinner but we settled for Jackson's and was glad! Great food and right on the water. Hotel also had a great view.

We had an excellent weekend stay at this hotel. Spent a gorgeous Saturday at the pool. Maria far exceeded our expectations with the exceptional service she provided at poolside. Thank you, Maria for your attention to detail. We will definately be back.
