“very relaxing and accomodating place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

i have stayed at this hotel several times now and it is really a pleasure every time. the location is outstanding and the attention to service is impeccable. they are in the process of remodel and i would honestly say that is the only change they should make. ask for steve tassi in the dining room for outstanding ,thoughtful wait service.

We stayed here for the night, with our grandchildren, but wished it could have been for a week! Very nice staff. Luxury feel but comfortable and not stuffy. Everything was super clean! We had a great view! Smoking is not allowed in the hotel but they had a nice area in the parking garage set up. Offered valet parking or self parking. It is very close to the Tampa Convention Center but not much else.

Room Tip: Apply for their rewards card and get upgrade and free parking like we did!

I booked this through hotels.com and was told that it had a balcony. Also the photos on the web site also showed a balcony with sliding glass doors. I also requested reserving the highest floor I could get, the hotel knew nothing of this. Gee, I could have called the hotel directly and reserved my own room.
It was a beautiful location the night city view was great and the harbour was also nice. In a great location in downtown.

Room Tip: Make sure you book a room up high and with a city view.

The location of this hotel is absolutely amazing. The staff were lovely and extremely responsive to me and my family. But, they really have to upgrade the executive suites in the hotel. At almost $400 a night a lot more luxury is needed in there so called 'luxury suites'. A 25 inch tv in the living room......really. Furniture from the 80's and broken shower head.........And please do something about the lifts........i swear i thought the wires were about to snap with all the creaking and squeaking noises.........
A real shame cause the staff were so wonderful.

Beautiful hotel, great location. Greeted by Lauren who helped me obtain guest pass to outdoor lap pool. Craig @ the bar found the perfect compliment of entree & local ybor city beer for late lunch. Cozy, private, very quiet. A really special place.

A friend and I stayed here for a girls' weekend out of town and I really have no complaints! The location was great, close to downtown and within walking distance to the streetcar/trolley. The valet guys were really nice and helpful when we had questions. I have to say the beds here are HEAVENLY!! One of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in in my life! The rooms were clean and the shower with the double head was pretty awesome as well! Our view was of the harbor and it was beautiful, well worth the little extra we paid. Overall, very happy with this hotel!

Visiting Tampa on business with about 15 colleagues. Plenty of options in this area of Tampa but we took a chance on the Westin Tampa Harbour Island. I wish we had gone to the Marriott 200 yards away. The room was nice and the view was decent but it seems as though the Westin wanted to nickel and dime us for everything. Nice hotel and the staff was very pleasant.
