“Nice Hotel with a view of the City Tampa and the water-Bay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

A short weekend stay for out of town guest. The rooms are nice, clean and well stocked with the usual Westin Hotel supplies.
The Front desk staff was friendly, and able to up-grade me to a water view room(I'm a Platinum level member), but not to a suite, which was a disappointment. Since I'm often was up-graded to a suite in other hotels.
The hotel is very convenient to the Tampa Bay Time forum for concerts or Lightning Hockey games(short and pleasant walk).
I may put my guest in this hotel again in the future, when I find a Good Rate( The Sheraton Suite West Shore is cheaper and have suite in every room which is nice, but not close to the city center)

Room Tip: Higher floor and ask for water view side.

The hotel is within easy walking distance to the convention center, sports arena, trolley to Ybor city and several local restaurants. We enjoyed our room which was very clean and comfortable. We also had a lovely view of the island and channel looking out toward Tampa Bay.

The large lobby and common areas including the pool were disappointing and hardly used during the week we stayed. There wasn’t a lot of seating and the furniture was uninviting, and looked in need of updating. There is a tiny utility-sized room with a soda cooler and a few snacks located next to the check-in desk. There’s no coffee shop such as Starbuck’s. You’ll have to go down the street to the Marriott or Embassy Suites for your morning fix. The bar/grill and the upscale restaurant looked empty most of the time. However, Jackson’s is a two minute walk from the hotel; so perhaps the Westin would prefer that you go there.

As with other reviews, request a room on a higher floor away from Jackson’s; or request room numbers ending between 16 to 31. When we asked, the check-in confirmed rooms overlooking Jackson’s would be affected by the noise from their entertainment.

I’ve stayed at many Starwood properties and overall, this hotel is not up to their four star standards. However, I would stay here again if all other comparable downtown Tampa hotels were fully booked.

Room Tip: Request a room on a higher floor with a room number ending beatween 16 to 31, which will be away fro...

This was one of the hotels for the Gasperilla race weekend and I loved it. The room was clean, friendly staff. I was able to get a late check out which was awesome. The race was just a walk over the bridge love the water view and th e restaurants was very nice. My friends and I will be back for this race again.

I had my wedding in July at the Westin and I couldn't be happier with my experience. They were so wonderful to all of my guests and the entire staff was attentive to all my needs. I would recommend an celebration or business meeting here. Working with Delaynna was incredible and she took care of me (bride) 100 percent.

Nice hotel. Great staff. From the moment we were greeted by the valet Robert until he brought our car when we checked out. Clean rooms and a nice view. Tampa is lovely and the Weston is a great place to stay.

Checked into the hotel early Saturday morning into a nice cleaned specious room and went immediately to Bush Gardens. Upon my return at approx. 9:30pm my wife and I wanted to dine in our room. As we viewed the menu we realized we were in the mood for Cajun Shrimp Pasta in which was not on the menu. I called the Front Desk and Winnel assisted me. I then ask Winnel if this was possible and her response was "Mr. Innocent please hold while I ask the chef. She placed me on hold for less than two minutes and said "yes" the chef will make it for you.

Later, Steve from room service delivered both meals to our room as he was extremely friendly.
Upon his return after we ate the Cajun pasta we immediately expressed how this was the best pasta ever!

Joe V (chef)- I would like to thank you so much for going out of your way and making the Cajun pasta for my wife and I.

I truly hope that the General Manager personally recognize you all for an awesome job!

The only downside in my day was the (3) PM valet guys that was there between 9pm-10pm on 7/26/14 Was very rude and unhelpful due to the fact that a part of my gear was broken and demanded that I park car as I tired to show him how to Checked into the hotel early morning into a nice cleaned specious room and went immediately to Bush Gardens.
