Homewood Suites Tampa Airport - Westshore
Ranked #14 of 163 Hotels in Tampa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 24, 2011

I stayed at this wonderful Homewood Suites in Tampa while on business. It was centrally located to several stores where we were holding training sessions. You can always count on a Homewood to have everything you need! They even gave me a two-bedroom suite and accommodated my gluten free dining needs during their dinners (included). The staff was friendly, accommodations fabulous...it was just an odd location. This would be great for families on a vacation. Instead, it is located near the airport. Planes fly right next to where the pool is, but they have a lovely firepit outside where you can relax and even meet fellow travelers. Strange but nice for a business stay!

Room Tip: All rooms are fabulous, you can't go wrong.

I stay on the road at least 3 nights a week. This property stood out from the crowd. I was impressed with the cleanliness and overall condition of the property, and, especially, the friendliness of the staff (Great job Mary!).

I have my new home on the road in Tampa.

This is a very nice property, though the suite is filled with so many furnishings it can be a challenge to move around. The staff is friendly, and once you figure out how to get to this place, located within a cluster of hotels, you can relax and enjoy.

Stayed for 4 nights the end of March and was very satisfied with everything at the Homewood Suites. The kitchen area is modern with granite and stainless steel. Bathrooms are up to date wtih granite countertops. I don't know if the hotel is brand new or newly remodeled, but it is now on my list of favorites!

Stayed for 1 night. The hotel seemed to be sold out for Spring Break, but things still worked fine.
Our suite was large and clean, and the wifi was ok.
The hotel has a shuttle bus to the airport, which is quite close. However, we did not hear much noise.
The light evening meal was just ok.

We were doing a boys trip to Florida to get some sun and spring training baseball. This hotel is in a great central location close to the Yankess, Phillies and Blue Jays. We had great accommodations and really enjoyed breakfast each day. We arrived on a Thursday and were able to take advantage of the beer and wine and hot dog night lite dinner that they provide. Our studio suites were nicely equipped with every thing you could need. We really enjoyed having a cocktail and a cigar around the fire pit at night with other hotel guests.

I am writing this review while staying at this hotel. It is spring break and the hotel was filled with large groups of kids/adults (theatre groups, baseball teams and other guests) Although the hotel was sold out, it was quiet. No loud parties or talking in the halls.

Breakfasts change daily but offer fresh fruit, eggs, toast, bagels, muffins, bacon, sausage or ham, cerals and lots to drink.

From Monday through Thursday a small dinner is offered, tonight ravioli and salad, bread sticks, other nights may be anything from chicken fingers, hotdogs, chili, oven backed potatoes, mexican meals, pepper steak etc. along with free wine and free beer on tap.

Staff are really friendly. The hotel is newer and clean. Free parking next door in parking garage, (30 second walk from front door) Short 1 minute walk to Hilton Garden Hotel and Marriott Town Suites

Negative : At breakfast a senior staff lady helping with the breakfast area, cleaning, bringing out food carried a huge, heavy, coffee pot across the eating room from the kitchen. She could barely carry it. Why don't they offer her a cart to carry heavy items?

This is a wonderful hotel. The two bedroom suites offer two bedrooms and two bathrooms with either king size or queen beds. No wonder so many groups stay here.

The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle to and from several malls, the Cheesecake Factory, other restaurants in mall areas and the airport.

Dear Brightydog,

Thank you for your comments in regards to your visit to the Homewood Suites Tampa Airport. You were correct on your observation of the hotels high occupancy during your visit. We are a popular landing site for our Northern guest this time of year. The baseball teams love our 2 bedroom suites!

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed our complimentary "Suite Start" Breakfast and evening "Managers Reception" while you were here. Our compimentary services are enjoyed daily by our many guest.

Our staff here is really what makes us stand apart from our competition. That is why it is should not come to a surprise that the individual you were referencing at breakfast - Deanna was just recently nominated for the "Spirit of Homewood Suites Award". Deanna sets a great example for our staff to follow. We provide Deanna, with a coffee cart that she normally totes around to stock the coffee station. However, she often thinks it just slows her down!

Thank you again for choosing Homewood Suites, and we look forward to seeing again in the future.

Sincerely,
Todd Kinney
General Manager
