I would like to give a shout-out to the manager Andrew at The Westin Tampa Waterside. Andrew was very friendly and professional. He was able to answer all my questions. I called a few times and he sounded like he was thrilled to help. I can feel the great personality and smile through the phone. Thanks

My stay at the Westin Tampa Waterside was not the best experience you would expect out of a “4” star hotel let alone any hotel owned by Marriott. First off, the valet personnel on the day shift schedule of Thursday December 31, 2020 was rude and was rushing us to get our stuff out of the car and did not have any available luggage carts saying “they all were in people rooms so can’t help you there”. The hotel was prepaid A MONTH in advanced and fully paid off on my card. Everything was fine until we checked in with my partner’s card for the security deposit hold and they later charged her card over $400.00 because not all the money was transferred from Expedia Booking Services. Mind you it has been paid for and posted for over a month through Expedia. This put us in a bad spot because the charge didn’t post but my bank withheld the pending charge hold making the available balance lowered by the amount temporarily charged. The A/C circulation in the rooms are absolutely atrocious and there are no fans in the bathrooms so when you shower, the room will feel muggy from the humidity built up from the shower for quite some time. The bright side of this not so great experience was that one of the managers named Andrew S. was able to clear a lot of this confusion for us. He managed to properly resolve this issues while poising a professional demeanor. If any problems are to arise, he would definitely be the one to go to for any help. The best thing about the hotel is the location, some of the staff members are very nice, and house keeping staff is phenomenal.

The Westin proved to have great customer service during these difficult times. All employees were providing exemplary service while adhering to safety standards. The view, customer service and comfortable beds make this place worthwhile. As an added bonus the location is perfect for a walk down riverwalk, eating venues and plenty additional tourist attractions.

Hotel is right off the bridge on Harbour Island. Valet parking still operating during covid (thank you!) We were upgraded to the top floor and were given the most amazing huge suite. Spotless and tastefully decorated. Amazing views. A seal on the door and refrigerator to ensure the room had been cleaned. No room service during covid. It was easy to order dinner from Jackson's and pick up at the front desk. A Starbucks in the lobby has breakfast.

Located in the heart of Tampa Bay close to the aquarium and convention center. We had a lovely Riverview room. Staff was great, comfy bed, and great location. Only a abut 45 minutes to Clearwater Beach and not far from Hard Rock Casino. Parking is valet, but if you have a Marriott rewards it is discounted and WiFi is free.
