First off, I booked this hotel thinking it was the nearby Doubletree Tampa Bay where we had previously stayed and liked. Boy, was I embarrassed when we tried checking in!
The Westshore is not as nice as the Tampa Bay Doubletree but certainly acceptable. The room we were initially given, 191, had a unacceptable noise level from I-275. We were given another much quieter room, 308, which overlooked the pool and courtyard.
Both rooms were clean. The king beds, especially the one in 308, were on the saggy side. The complimentary wi-if was very good.
This is a busy hotel and some of the common areas show it. Staff were professional and helpful.
A word to the wise: If you are at all bothered by traffic noise then you need to ask for a room away from the Interstate.
