We were visiting family nearby and chose this Westin because of the location, price and the way they treated our daughter when she stopped in to look at the rooms before we made the reservation. She was given a tour of the hotel, including several rooms. Our room was large, clean, comfortable and had a great view of the water and the city. There were 2 large flat screens and Bose speakers with the t.v. in the living area. Everything worked perfectly, there was a full length mirror, and the bed couldn't have been better. The workout area was clean and had plenty of choices of equipment. The room was very quiet. Members of the staff were pleasant and friendly. We were pleased with our selection and will certainly be back.

Room Tip: The view from the 14th floor on the Causeway side of the hotel was impressive.

Our stay in Tampa was unforgettable thanks to Steven R at the Westin Harbour Tampa restaurant. He was eager to please and went out of his way to get us a top 10 things to see in Tampa. He went out of his way to ensure our food was made to perfection and answered any and all of our questions.

We stayed at a nearby hotel for business purposes. However, we came back to the Westin Restaurant because I remembered a delicious pasta with chicken entree. The entree was still available and I found it to be as delicious as I remembered.

To my surprise we had the same waiter that we had numerous years ago. I remembered him because of his personality and efficency. Steven R. is a delight. He is friendly, efficient, and non-intrusive and was very welcoming when we arrived. He satisfied my curiosity when I asked him how long he has been with the Westin by saying 20 years. That says a lot for Steven R. as an employee and for Westin as an employer.

Here for 3 nights on business. Hallways and facilities are a little dated and could use some updating. Room was very comfortable, bed appeared to be close to new. Wi-fi worked great (was free as part of our group rate). Pool area was decent, and room service was quick to deliver food and drink poolside when requested. Staff was friendly throughout my stay. If you're not particular about the little things, this is a comfortable, friendly place to stay.

I prefer the new Westin over on the causeway but need to stay closer to Ybor City on ocassion and use this property as I am a Starwood Platinum guest.

The Bad
$20 Valet, $15 Self Parking.
No full length mirrors in the room.
Upgraded "Corner Rooms" have large living room area with No TV.
Toilet never flushed properly, even after maintenance tried to fix it.
The property has removed all glassware from the rooms, this is not a Sheraton Four Points, only thin flimsy plastic cups in the rooms.
Old carpet with multiple stains in the room.

The Good
Great location for weekends.
Good bath robes in the room.
Staff is sincere, helpful and very friendly.
