I have stayed here now twice in the last month. I love the fact that it's close to all of my banking clients but I can come back after a day in the offices and run the bridge and around the island.
Tampa Bay Lightning play all of 5 minutes from the hotel. Super easy walk and there are always tickets. 10th floor has updated rooms. Valet parking is $20. Self Park is $17.
Overall the hotel is a mid-grade Westin. It indeed could use some updating. It's location though is the reason to stay here for work or play.
