“Fresh, clean, well-lit large bathroom”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

This is a very fresh, clean property, professional and helpful staff. The bathroom is large and well-lit! One of my pet peeves is dim bathrooms in hotels. I carry my own lighted makeup mirror when I travel, and I left it in my suitcase, didn't need it! Our view was great, of the bay and the little beach area. The hotel is dead quiet. It was pretty full, and we never heard a sound while in our room. I didn't check on the pool before we booked since we were there for a family event, but there was a day we had some down time and were disappointed to learn that the pool is indoor. That's the only reason I'm not giving it a 5. We love Starbucks in the lobby.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a great view of the bay

Hello RQRO8,

Thank you for your very kind words and we are happy to know that you enjoyed your visit with us. It is also great to know that you found our hotel to be fresh and clean with bright bathrooms. I can understand your disappointment in discovering that we did not have an outdoor pool. But our indoor pool gets quite a bit of use when the weather is not all that great. I guess that best case would be to have one of each. Until then, it is great to know that we have a Starbucks :)
Thank you again,
Ron

We recently stayed at the Westin for five days. The hotel was very nice and clean, and our room had a nice view of the bay. The beds were very comfortable to sleep in. It is located close to the Tampa airport. It is also just minutes away from major roads. There is a five dollar parking charge each day. Be careful of the parking spaces, as they are very close together! There is Internet access for the hotel, but you have to be in the lobby area only. If you wish to have Internet access in your room, there is a charge of $10 a day. I found this to be a little pricey. There is a Starbucks downstairs next to the hotel lobby. In my opinion, this hotel accommodates more business people than families.

Dear Laura G,
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your recent visit and thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and kind words. Our famous Heavely Beds do make for a comfortable sleep which is obviously a major factor when selecting a "nice place to stay". The five dollar parking charge is for either self or valet parking if you feel that the self-park spaces are a little too tight. We look forward to your return in the near future.
Stay Well,
Ron

This is my second stay at the Westin Tampa Bay, both times for business travel. The hotel is convenient to the Tampa Airport, about 10-15 minutes away. The Westin beds are very comfortable and I look forward to staying at the hotel just for the beds. The views overlook the Bay and make the room even more enjoyable.

The only real negative to me is the charge for internet access - $10 per day per device. I bring my work computer and iPad so it would cost $20 per day for the internet and I'm there for three days. Westin Tampa Bay, you've got to be kidding . . .

Dear YorkiesD,
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and we are happy to hear that you find out hotel to be convenient and enjoyable. We enjoy having you as our guest as well and look forward to your return. I am sorry that you are unhappy with the $10 internet charge, but I can assure you that this price is extremely competitive with the daily fee at the other upscale hotels in Tampa as well as all of the Westin hotels throughout North America. However, once you reach Gold or Platinum SPG status, the option to waive this fee exists. I appreciate your understanding.
Regards,
Ron

I have stayed at all the other Starwood properties in the Tampa Bay area, so thought I would try this relatively new hotel. It is only 15 minutes from downtown Tampa and 10 minutes from the Tampa Airport. $5 self or valet parking. Quiet. Good water views. Easy access to major highways. Typical Westin quality which is a good thing. I really enjoyed the Club Lounge on the 15th floor for breakfast. Check in and out was easy with no lines and friendly service. As SPG Platinum member, was upgraded to junior suite. Price for 1 night was more expensive than I would have expected for the area.

Nothing particularly impressive about property. It was what I expected except Club Lounge was a nice touch. Will likely return.

I stayed at this hotel for business a few weeks ago and found the location to be very close to the Airport and offer all conveniences. Rooms were very comfortable, bathroom was spacious with a separate shower and tub. Having a Starbucks onsite was a bonus for a quick coffee and bite to eat vs. a full american breakfast.

Great stay !

We stayed here for my birthday weekend, and had a wonderful experience! The views from this hotel are lovely (especially at sunset) and everyone we encountered was very friendly. We had some issues with our TV and the engineering tech was extremely friendly (I wish I could remember his name!) and when they weren't able to fix our TV, he assisted us in moving to another room. Hotel is close to various restaurants and activities. We would definitely stay here again and look forward to doing so!

This westin looks like it is on the beach. It has a "beach", but it is on the water with a gorgeous location. It has a beach to sit near to relax and have a drink. It is conveniently located to get to St. Petersburg, Tampa, downtown Tampa and Clearwater. At first I was worried that it wasn't near anything to walk to, but realized that we could drive most anywhere quickly. Great location. Great service, great food and drinks. I wish they would buy a blender, however. A Pina Colada by the water would have fit the bill. Will stay there again.
