The Westin Tampa Bay is a beautiful, modern hotel in a great location...near the airport but not so near that airplane noise is a problem. The room I had overlooked the bay and although the weather didn't co-operate so much, watching the boats and dolphins in the bay was relaxing. The hotel restaurant was nice (try the scallops!) and even the room service burgers were decent if a bit pricey.
The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. Price wise, I'm sure I could have found an adequate place for less money, but I didn't mind paying more for a nice and relaxing hotel. The only suggestion I would make is to try to insulate the rooms better sound-wise as sometimes door opening or people walking down the hall were audible. Fortunately, the hotel wasn't terribly busy during my stay and this wasn't a major problem. I'd be happy to stay there again.More
