“Great Location...close to work and play-so so Westin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

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.

Room Tip: 1021 is a good room in my estimation.

Pleasant staff easy check in. Room had a great view. $17.95 a day to self park and 12.95 for Internet about standard. Had trouble connecting to Internet transferred to tech support. when checking out they tried to charge $2.00 for a long distance call that I questioned. Apparently for the call to tech support that they removed. Shower had mildew growing and Tv remote decided to quit working. All in all I will definitely stay there again.

The place is beautiful, and I was upgraded to a brand new suite too. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and modern and the room service was delicious, albeit a bit over priced, but hey it's a hotel right? I got a great rate for being an SPG member and I would return in a heartbeat...except for one thing. I bought a new car, drove from the dealer to this hotel, get my car back the next morning and bam a scuff on the rear quester panel. Clearly the valet parking at $20 bucks per day would take better care of your vehicle. Hopefully it buffs out,the hotel is great, the valet...not so much.

I spent two nights at the Westin Harbour Island and fest as if I were at a much lesser hotel chain. Not up to Westin standards. The lobby was very dated looking. There was a concierge desk but no concierge to be found. The room were old and not in a good way. The bathrooms were small and generic. Nothing about the hotel was inviting. I would not stay there again.

I loved this hotel from check-in to check-out. Great pay per view choices, 24 hour room service, water view, Jacksons downstairs to drink and play! It is so close to everything as well. It was a great place for an inexpensive staycation!

I have had the opportunity to stay at this hotel twice now and I must say, something just don't change. I am very, very impressed with the look of the building from the outside, and the SUPERB greeting you receive when you drive up. Jose' Alviardo (one of the BEST VALET Men on the premises) and the other REAL GENTLEMEN whose job is to greet people and valet the vehicles, helps to make your first moments at this hotel AWESOME! Their service is great, their helpfulness is awesome, and their suggestions for in town resturants are out of this world. Upon entering the hotel, you can't help but be amazed. Then when I was helped again, by Mike Napoli (hotel rep.) I was again blown away. I must say, after those two great introductions, I was on cloud nine. But when I got upstairs, I didn't feel the same. The building is evidentally going through some remodeling?!? But the first time I stayed there, the carpet on the 5th floor was wet smelling and looking and it felt like I had paid a great deal to stay at a MOTEL instead of this wonderful looking HOTEL. But my second visit (all sponsored by someone) I was moved to the 9th floor (a LOT BETTER) and my view was great and room was awesome, but the house keepers, skipped my room (after I tried saving them some cleaning by hanging my tag outside the door every other day) for cleaning, AFTER I PERSONALLY SPOKE TO THE LADIES to remind them to clean the room. I had to wait an hour after I notified the front desk for service. But if those are my only complaints, and the appearance is huge to me, then I guess they still deserve a four star. Greetings and hospitality is huge to me....but where I must lay my head is IMPORTANT too!!!!

My husband and I were attending the Tampa Bay Comic Con in August of this year and stayed at The Westin. Check in was painless and Mitch was very helpful in getting us checked in. Our room was well appointed and clean. The hotel is in very close proximity to the convention center (just a short walk over the bridge!) and is a safe area if you are out late at night.
