“Upscale hotel with great views of Tampa/waterfront”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

This hotel is definitely top-notch and is everything you would expect from a Westin property. It looks new, everything is super clean, and the staff is very helpful and friendly.

I was there for business, but this place would be even better for a vacation or fun night in the city!! There is all kinds of cool places within walking distance of the hotel.

If you're considering booking this hotel, DO IT you will not be disappointed.

This hotel is nice, clean, reasonably priced. Has an awesome view of city and water. Wish we had a balcony instead of just a window. Pool is small, but we had a great time there, pool bar is convenient. Could not find a place to buy beer or wine around hotel, should have picked up beforehand. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Parking is expensive, even self parking ( almost $20/ day with tax), but I knew that when booking. Overall we had a great time, the area is clean but mostly vacant, I'm assuming because it is downtown and was the weekend and no big events going on. We had a good time.

My husband I stayed there the weekend of our 15th wedding Anniversary. It was wonderful. As soon as the staff got wind of our anniversary, Lauren the front desk Manager sent up complementary strawberries and champagne. It was so nice and she wrote a sweet card. In the same weekend there was a High School reunion happening and some of the guests were obnoxious and loud. They kept us up really late and we called down to complain. Not only sis the staff get them to quiet down we woke up to another card from Lauren and complimentary breakfast for two. The staff is really nice and cares about the guests. The bed was really comfortable and I am really picky about where I sleep. We have has a great stay. Oh and we walked all around the area. It is really nice for downtown.

We stayed one night for the convenince to TGH. We had water-side views with the level of accommodations equivalent or better to a high end Hilton property. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Although we have no desire to return to go back to the hospital, we would stay here again to enjoy downtown Tampa!

This Westin has very nice views of the waterways with shells practicing for races. The common areas are very nice. The room we stayed in was a basic Westin room with a comfortable bed. The window was missing its shade, however, and to get privacy we had to use the black out curtin. We stayed one night. The hotel was only 33% filled so the restaurant was closed. we ate in the bar where Paul the bartender treated us very well. As a Gold level guest I expected an upgrade, but none was forthcoming. All in all, though, a good experience. The facility has a good parking garage below the hotel, which provides convenient access to the hotel. There is a charge for parking.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the waterways in the back of the hotel are great.

We have stayed at this property several times. The location on Harbour Island is really nice. However, the rooms lack a lot--especially since this property has been upgraded (?) from a Wyndham to a Westin. The public areas are quite nice and in your room, somewhere under all the menus shoved under your door you will see an announcement of how proud they are of the renovations to the public areas. I only wish they had paid more attention to the rooms. Sure there is a heavenly bed, heavenly sheets, heavenly towels, etc., etc., but the property is more of your basic Radisson than a Westin. Plastic cups instead of glasses, moderately clean and just kind of dated. When we checked in we were told we were being upgraded to the club level, but next to an elevator. We asked what the club level meant and were told it is on a higher floor--well how great! In fact, I don't even know what the advantage is to the upgrade? Fewer stains on the wall maybe. Parking is $17 a night and, of course, there is a WiFi fee--guess that isn't a perk of an upgrade either. (Maybe we just got more plastic cups!). All in all, a very very average property.
