“Good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for business , and some leisure, in May 2014. Location of hotel is fantastic, and the hotel looks so impressive from the outside.
Inside, rooms are great, and staff are very helpful.
Only negative is that the general interior of the hotel (lobby,pool area etc) could do with a facelift, and to me it looks empty and outdated.
Nevertheless, enjoyed my stay, and would definitely return

Westin is in an excellent location and many restaurants are within walking distance. The hotel itself has a great bar. Staff are very friendly and they recognize and appreciate your SPG status. I highly recommend this hotel for both business and pleasure stays. My recent stay for two nights in June 2014 went very well.

Room Tip: river facing rooms are great

This hotel is very well located in downtown Tampa, close to the convention center and very well connected to other parts of the city. You can relax looking out into the channel and bay, or you take the train to Ybor City, or just walk around the area. It is 15 minutes away from TPA.

The hotel staff is very dedicated and professional, and they are always trying to make your stay pleasant and as much trouble free as possible.

There are other choices nearby, but no doubt the Westin is the best alternative.

Room Tip: Ask for bayside view.

For our 36th Wedding Anniversary we stayed at the Westin. It was a total pleasure! The staff was wonderful and did everything I requested. From the Wine and Cheese plate to the great view from our room overlooking the water. The hotel is located close to the trolley that takes you to to a bunch of great stops.
If you want a great hotel with a great pool, staff and some of the most comfortable beds I've slept in the Westin Tampa Harbour is the place to go. We recommend this hotel to everyone!
Enjoy your stay, we did!

Stayed at the Westin during job interviews. The hotel is located on an island in downtown Tampa. Great water views.

We came back to our room one evening and the valet staff had champagne and chocolate covered strawberries delivered to the room (to celebrate a successful job interview)- nice surprise.

On our last day, there was an incorrect charge on our invoice. It was corrected quickly. Additionally, the manager, Mohammed, provided us with vouchers for the breakfast buffet because of this issue. The free breakfast was not necessary but appreciated.

The rooms are dated but we were advised the hotel will be beginning a renovation soon.

We recommend and will stay at the Westin Tampa Harbour Island again.

I stayed for two nights at the Westin and it exceeded my expectations. The front desk staff were friendly, attentive and efficient. The room was beautiful, details of the room very well prepared. Each morning the hotel offered a buffet breakfast which was filled with delicious offerings. This is truly a luxury property with beautiful accommodations and highly professional staff who are providing top customer service.
