“Great hotel & Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

Nice hotel, get location with great views. Must say the Claudio at the front desk really went above and beyond to make our trip special. Had a mix up with the room booking and he did everything he did to make it a special stay. Many thanks to the team!

As usual, this was a beautiful Westin hotel in a great location with superior service. I was well accommodated with two double beds as requested, even though a volleyball tournament had already booked nearly all of them prior. The only issue was the elevators were not working and we were forced to use service elevators at times, which was inconvenient. However, Rafael, the Front Office Manager, assuaged all of my concerns by apologizing profusely and explaining the situation. In light of this likely one time issue and the rest of the redeeming qualities of the hotel, I would definitely stay here again on a future trip to Tampa.

As a frequent world traveller for business and pleasure it is easy to almost immediately detdrmine the tone set by the hotel general manager. All staff greeted us when passing no matter their job. The room was well maintained and the maid service excellent. The food presented at the group meals at breakfast and lunch was very good and plentiful. If you can feed a group of air force service members and their families upon their return from deployment or about to deply with excellent results you can feed any group.

Room Tip: Request a high ocean side room. Hotel is right on A1A.

During a New Year's trip to Westin Tampa Harbour Island for the Outback Bowl, I had great service from a bartender. Dereck demonstrated professionalism, and he was very courteous to my husband and me. He definitely made the stay much better :)

I spent 5 weeks on business in Tampa January-February 2013 and stayed at this property for the duration. The hotel is well located near downtown and the convention center. My group had rooms on the 12th floor "Starwood Preferred" floor, which seemed indistinguishable from any other floor. I had a 12" balcony but the sliding door would not, and could not not be opened (I asked). The King room I had was nicely appointed and comfortable for work, meaning it had a nice size desk, internet connection, and large-screen flat-panel TV that swivels. The Heavenly bed and dual shower head were welcome amenities. After 5 weeks I was just as comfortable there as when I first arrived.

There were some drawbacks, namely the occasional cockroach some of my colleagues encountered in their rooms an dining area, and very slow elevators. There are only three guest elevators, which in the mornings caused 5-10 minute wait times. To the hotel's credit, whenever the property was fully booked, they made the two service elevators, located behind the guest elevators, available to guests, with helpful lobby signs directing you to them. Actually, the service elevators are available anytime so I used them almost exclusively. The pool area is rather small and difficult to get to first time (ask directions). The fitness room was also quite small, the size of a suite, and too warm and stuffy to be inviting.

In-room food service was fine, with expected high prices. The service and front desk staff were universally pleasant, helpful, and eager to please.

If you need to get downtown, the hotel offers a free shuttle (tips appreciated). I chose to walk the mile to my office and found I really looked forward to that every day. You can swing around the convention center on River Walk and get there in 15-20 minutes.

On weekends, tucked under the bridge from the mainland to Harbour Island is a City Bike Tampa rental hut. I recommend taking one out in the morning (open at 10:00 a.m.) and then make a day of it tooling around neighboring Davis Islands, Channel Side, Ybor City, and the three museums downtown (MOPA, Museum of Art, and Plant Museum). Tampa is a beautiful city so get out and enjoy it if you're there on business.

Our group coordinator was apologetic that she couldn't arrange accommodations closer to our office building downtown because our timing conflicted with several conventions and Gasparilla, the pirate invasion/Mardi Gras festival, but I couldn't have been happier that we stayed on Harbour Island at the Westin.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 1226 on the southwestern side. Sunrise very morning was a treat and the view south...

Last night my husband along with our friend had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful hotel. We booked it thru Hotwire and we could not have been more pleased. The room was perfect and the view of the water and the city could not have been better. Everyone there was so polite. The beds there are to die for. If you are ever there for a hockey game which u can walk to very easy or just want a great weekend away think of this place I promise you that you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: As for a water view room higher up the better

I was dining alone at breakfast and my waiter, Steve Tassi, was extremely efficient, friendly and helpful. He was more than willing to provide some history on the area but more importantly for me he provided some good shopping hot spots. Excellent waiter!! I enjoyed chatting with him during my breakfast.

The front desk staff was also very friendly and efficient. The hotel is undergoing some renovations but our room was clean and met our needs. It had a beautiful view.
