Wanda and her staff were wonderful.....we stayed at the Westshore in March 2012 for the Crimson Dealer Meeting. Meals were wonderful.....love the fruit daily! We always had nice fluffy towels and our room was immaculate daily! I loved my view from the balcony and enjoyed eating my breakfast w/feet in the hot tub....yum!

Room Tip: Our room was on the 2nd floor and I could either take the elevator or get my exercise by walking dow...

We stayed at this hotel in April of 2012 the night before we were set to take off on a Carnival cruise. Once we got to the airport and picked up our luggage we called the hotel for it’s free airport shuttle. They said on the phone that they would be there in 15-20 minutes. Thirty minutes later they arrived and we were on our way. It only took about 5-10 minutes to get to the hotel.

Location: The hotel location is OK…I’m not sure if there is much within walking distance. If you are looking for the nearest Starbucks there is a hotel just across the street in a different hotel.

Shuttle: The hotel has a free shuttle that will take you anywhere within a 2 mile radius. We did this to purchase wine, pop, water, and breakfast items. The driver was great…he dropped us off at Total Wine & More and waited until we were done…then drove us to Target and waited again until we were ready to go back to the hotel. The shuttle to the cruise port was $10 a person and we signed up for it when we checked in. We opted to take the first shuttle of the day and it only took about 10-15 minutes to get there.

Hotel Restaurant (Player’s): I liked the burgers, wraps, and fries that everyone ordered. I ordered the nachos and it came with the fake cheese sauce that I hate so I didn’t each much of those. The prices weren’t bad either.

Pool: Just walked by the pool area but it seemed nice. There were a lot of lush vegetation around the pool and it looked like the maintenance man was keeping busy trying to fish out all the leaves.

Thank you for staying with us prior to your cruise! We're delighted that our complimentary shuttle service was helpful and that you enjoyed your meal in Players Sports Pub. With close proximity to the Port of Tampa and our Park & Cruise package, our hotel is a favorite for pre and post cruise stays.

This was our fourth year of holding annual meetings/banquet (150+) at Doubletree, and it gets better every year. Though always excellent, this year the food was wonderful and innovative both in terms of presentation and flavor. The banquet chef, Chris Waters, has done a wonderful job with the menu choices and delivery. Tiffany Hughes, Ben Seay and Tyrone Cushine were all so helpful with every aspect of planning the event and meeting our on site needs. Our attendees were very complimentary of both the guest rooms and the staff's attention to their needs. We highly recommend this team and facility!

The hotel is OK, maybe a little old, however, customer service rules! I am here for a week, in training, for my company. As a woman, on business, I tend to stay in versus go out to restaurants on my own. So far I have gone to the bar twice for dinner and was treated like I was a regular. I was very comfortable with a staff that looks out for you. On one elevator ride I met Wanda the head of housekeeping. Wanda, you rock. We had a couple of great conversations, I hope to run into you again before the week is out. This is not the first time I have stayed in a DoubleTree and was blown away by the kind and attentive staff. The other Hilton brands are good but really cannot top a DoubleTree for professional and welcoming personnel.

Stayed here to take an early flight. Bad idea. The hotel was very noisy - between the traffic and the people next door, we got hardly any sleep. Water on carpet - maybe the AC leaked? Gross. Hotel restaurant was just ok - my nachos had the kind of cheese you get at 7-11. At least the waitress was nice and there was an airport shuttle.

My daughter and I stayed twice within a weeks time. The first was on Friday, April 13,2012, due to an early flight out of TPA, and then again Tuesday, April 17,2012, due to her flight arriving very late at night. First visit was booked through Kayak, and even though we got an incredible rate, we were treated as though we paid top dollar. The second stay was prompted by the experience of the first. I did pay more for the room (there were no specials available on Kayak for that evening), but despite the fact that we could have stayed elsewhere for less, WE WON'T !! On both occasions, the entire staff was not only professional, polite, and courteous, but they went out of their way to make sure each and every aspect of our stay was enjoyable. The rooms were well stocked and very clean. The food and service in the sports bar were exceptional ! The only disappointment we had was the reality of the fact that we had to check out ! I will be coming to Tampa once a month, and I won't stay anywhere else.

Third year in a row at the DoubleTree. Close to Steinbrenner Field, Yankee Spring Training which is why
we travel to Tampa in March. Love the fresh cookies.
Karel greeted us at the desk and remembered us from last year. Hotel staff were very accommodating and friendly. Restaurant pricey, but food good. Enjoyed breakfast, lunch and late night snacks in the sports bar. Our room was clean.
Can't wait to return next March.
