“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

Mike at the front desk went out of his way to help us learn about transportation to cruise ships. This was outstanding service! We also enjoyed the hotel chef preparing complimentary appetizers at the hotel bar. While this hotel was a bit difficult to find, it will be a great hotel to stay at prior to our next cruise out of Tampa.

I stayed at the Westin Harbor Island hotel for about 10 weeks and enjoyed my stay each week. The room was always clean and the bed very comfortable. All employees were more than willing to help out when asked and the front desk was very helpful. The hotel location is very good in the heart of downtown and also not far from the airport. There is also a convenient gym just down the block that you can use while staying at the hotel. Breakfast buffet was excellent with a good choice of different foods to suit most appetites.Valet service was prompt and very helpful with tips about quicker traveling routes. Employees that I enjoyed were Mike and Lauren, front desk; Tim and Dan, valet; Rosa, bartender.

The room was very clean and the service was spectacular! As I was checking in, I informed the associate helping me that I was actually needing a room with two beds. Although there were none available, Mike was able to upgrade me to a suite with a fold out couch. He also was gracious enough to comp the great breakfast for me and my guests. What an experience!

Room Tip: Every time I've stayed, there's always a great view of downtown Tampa or the Harbour Island...

The room was so clean, the bed so comfortable. The thermostat worked beautifully - over Labor Day weekend it was scorching hot outside but nice and cool inside our room. Staff was great. Will definitely stay here whenever we go to Tampa again.

My wife and I stayed at your hotel for a short much needed vacation.

We are frequent travelers mostly outside the USA, when traveling we stay mostly in 4-5 star hotels.

Our stay was wonderful. The hotel is located in a peaceful part of the city with easy access to the city center, ideally located in terms of getting about.

Our excellent 9th floor room was large enough for us to relax in without falling over each other, room was very quite, clean, nice décor, average size tub/shower. Complimentary bottled water coffee and tea. The king size bed was comfortable; and plenty of comfy pillows (a must for me!), good room amenities. From our room we had most superb views of the bay.

Valet service was prompt; valet was helpful with travel hints, (see # comments at bottom). During check in front desk personal was attentive and was helpful with travel ideas.

Breakfast buffet was excellent with a good choice of different foods to suit most appetites. Good choice of hot food and plenty of fruit, yogurts. All fresh and tasty.

Coffee and orange juice were offered at table by the friendly waiter, so much nicer than than self serve. Selection was more than ample, the waiter Steve, was polite quick and extremely attentive (a real treasure). My made to order omelet was very tasty.


To summarize
Hotel personal treated us very well, hotel is well maintained clean and very nicely designed, The staff very helpful.

We would recommend this hotel highly.

Thank you

Chief Superintendent (Ret)

Room Tip: Chose upper floors with bay view.

Over a year ago, I traveled for business to Tampa and always stayed at this Westin. Recently I went back to Tampa and figured I would stay closer to my client site for convenience reasons. But this week, I went back to visit and stay with this Westin and I can tell you that I was missing out on whats most important and that's feeling like you are at home. It was amazing to see Adriana, Lauren, Winnelle, and Jose. These people really make your stay that much better. I also missed the surrounding area. Nothing beats the Tampa Bay that surrounds this Westin. And the restaurants and other establishments around the Westin were even that much more fulfilling than other areas. And I cant forget that the renovations that the Westin has made make the world of a difference as well. It looks beautiful. A job well done!
