Tampa Marriott Westshore
Ranked #60 of 164 Hotels in Tampa
Reviewed March 26, 2009

The hotel is located close to the airport. The check in was smooth and very courteous. The rooms are relatively. small and the first thing you will notice when you walk in is that the rooms are very stuffy. Almost as if no-one opened the window for a long time -- which incidentally is quite likely, because the windows do not open. So if you do care about the room smelling nice and fresh - this isn't a hotel for you. Other than that, it's your very standard Marriott.

I had a standard room which was in need of a refit and also not clean to the standard you would expect - the window was particularly filthy. The walls were very thin which meant that I could hear the conversations of the couple next door. On the positive side, it seemed reasonably located and the front staff were efficient - there was a very long queue for checking in but they were able to process eqch person quite quickly.

I spent two days at this hotel on a business trip. Pleasant lobby (and nice pool), friendly staff, clean rooms. Nice TV with high definition. I got free internet on the concierge floor which was a nice surprise. The rooms were a little small but ok. The beds were comfortable. I plan on staying at the Westshore Marriott on my next trip to Tampa.

I stayed in this property over weekend of 2/6 and thought it was located in a great place. Yes, the strip club is across the street, but there are plenty of other hotels on the surrounding blocks. The hotel allows easy access to the major highways and Tampa tourist areas. The restaurant had decent food and friendly service. The bedrooms are small but adequate for a short trip. They use the Marriott bed system here and it is incredibly comfortable. The indoor/outdoor pool and hot tub area is large and clean. I would recommend this hotel to both business travelers and weekenders.

There is nothing special about this hotel but it is fully functional for a business traveler, centrally located, and not terribly expensive. The area is very commercial, but safe. You won't realize there is a strip club across the street unless you are looking for it. Two upscale malls and lots of eateries nearby. The hotel restaurant is average, but the staff were very helpful, especially the hostess.

I stay at this Marriott several times throughout the year on business. I have never taken the time to write a review. However, right now I am in Tampa -- at a different hotel, because Marriott Westshore was booked for Super Bowl travelers -- and I realized how much I appreciate this property!

The staff are friendly, courteous and professional. The Elite lounge is well stocked and well staffed. The rooms are relatively the small compared to some properties, but always spotless with all amenities in perfect working condition.

The workout room is nice, although I wish they had the treadmills with individual built-in TVs. The cobb salad at Blu is delicious!

This is a great site, particularly for business travelers.

This hotel is unremarkable. The room was small compared to other Marriotts we have stayed at. This was our second stay at this particular hotel - there are no balconies, the pool is just ok, and it's very much an anonymous sort of place. Breakfast at Blu was just ok. The windows in the room were dirty. There's no real view (it's a view of the city). The bathroom smelled a bit like it needed a better cleaning and it was so cramped that the door cleared the toilet by .25" and there was only room for one sink. The soaps and shampoos were Neutrogena - typical Marriott. There was a large flat screen tv, a huge desk, chair, table, and desk chair. The hotel is about 2 miles from the airport, and down the street from the Westshore Mall and a Walgreens. We had dinner at Mitchel's Fish Market. Excellent value. Fresh fish for an amazing price. Directly across the street from the hotel is a strip club of some sort. Not exactly an appealing location for tourists, but we were here on Business so it didn't matter.
