Tampa Marriott Westshore
Ranked #61 of 164 Hotels in Tampa
Reviewed 14 May 2008

I've got pretty good eyesight and I didn't see the strip club. Bearing in mind you'd need to walk through the parking lot and cross a four lane highway to get to anywhere else, I think your morals will be safe here.

Spent two nights here on business and it was perfectly acceptable. The international staff were nice, breakfast reasonable if not special, location pretty good for the airport with a regular shuttle available. The pool is "Tampa's biggest", allegedly, which seems odd given that this is the land of plenty. It's possibly 20 yards long but in an odd configuration; it's nowhere near as big as the picture at the top of this page, which suggests this is a monster resort! It's not. It's on a corner plot.

The room seems to have been recently refurbished with comfortable bed and a very large HD TV with real, genuine HD channels. However, the doors etc. were clearly original features and looked a little tired. Not a significant reason to criticise the hotel.

On balance, whilst being an aging member of the chain gang, this property is certainly comfortable and I'd stay here again. Juding by what I saw of the outside of some of the other accommodation in this area, you could do a lot worse. Is it worth $150? Just about.

My husband and I stayed at this Marriott several times while in the area searching for a new home as we were being relocated in Jan 2008. The first stay I found the room to be small but lovely, if the toilet lid was down the bathroom door barely closed! But i asked for a corner room on our next stay and found it to be huge and with a balcony. Definitely ask for the corner/balcony if available. The rates drastically reduce on the weekends as the hotel caters to weekday business travelers.

The rooms were modern, very comforatable - I could have lounged in that bed all morning, and very clean. The staff made it an excellent hotel in that they were very gracious, accomodating and friendly. The hotel also has a decent fitness center and a nice pool that is half indoors and half out.

There are many restaurants and shops close by and a Starbucks right in the hotel. Yes there is an adult establishment across the street but other than the sign you really don't know its there.

was checked in by a very rude and impatient clerk his name was Dan. My key did not work He blaimed me for putting it near my cell phone. Made me walk all the way back to the room and the second key did not work? finally the 3rd one did. thank you RUDE Dan the clerk. The only saveing Grace was a clerk w/ an Austrainian accent She was great with my check out. Rooms were small but nice Bathroom way too small. Breakfast was great. Room service dinner was also good. Internet was not!! free in the rooms only in the gaudy decorated lobby.

This hotel is solid. I've stayed here a few times, most recently for a Christmas Party dinner (didn't want to drive home inebriated). The rooms are on the smaller side, but work for a night or two. Bed is fairly comfortable. Some work could be done on the bathrooms (minor peelings here and there) but nothing horrible.

The location is good, and if you can get a decent price it's a pretty good deal. On site parking has never been an issue for me. The hotel is down the street from the International Plaza (upscale mall) in one direction and in the other direction you'll find the Westshore Mall (with movie theaters, food, etc.). LOTS of hotels in this area and if you're a Marriott Loyalist this is a good hotel.

Right off I-275, easy to get around, and often times the hotel runs specials for "park and ride" for the airport.

The Westshore Marriott is a nice hotel, what you would expect from a Marriott. It is across the street from a Strip Club but generally the neighborhood isn't bad. It is near the airport and within walking distance of two malls but thats about it. I stayed there for a football game so it was close to the stadium which was good for me.

The hotel has a nice pool which, despite claims, was not heated so even though the weather was beautiful there was no swimming, The conference area was being renovated but did not impact my stay. There is a restaurant/bar with fairly expensive drinks. The rooms are a little small but nice. A highlight was a LCD TV with actual HDTV channels.

If you are a Marriott loyalist, this wil do the job. I'd rank it somewhere in the lower middle on the Marriott scale. City location near airport (but this is not the Marriott on the airport), is convenient to mall, etc. I found it pricy for Marriott--and beware they crank up the price whenever there's something going on in town and the hotel is full.

Housekeeping likes to turn down the air conditioning to full cold even in November. Your room will be freezing cold when you return and there's no heat.

The only reason I gave this hotel 3 stars was bad housekeeping. Everything else was great.

Very nice for a business traveller. Room had plenty of electrical outlets and I could plug in laptop, phone charger, blackberry charger, and hairdryer all at one time without crawling around behind the furniture. Work desk was comfortable. Had trouble getting a wireless connection at first, but the phone tech support was great.

This was my first visit to Tampa, so I can't comment on the location. Took the hotel shuttle from the airport and the driver was fantastic -- helpful, friendly, etc. The next day, I had 2 hours between meetings and he took me to a local mall and came back to pick me up.

Problems with housekeeping. I returned to the room around 3:00 in the afternoon and it hadn't been cleaned. Room service breakfast dishes still there. Front desk said 4:00 pm is their cutoff for cleaning, which seems a bit late. They sent someone right away who seemed irritated, but at least they took away the dishes. Someone else in our group never did have his room cleaned. He spent the night with dirty dishes and received a discount on his bill. Maybe they were having staffing problems?

Restaurant downstairs worked well for a business lunch. Service was quick. Room service for breakfast was right on time, food was good, servings were generous for a reasonable price (approx. $12). There's also a coffee bar in the lobby where you can get a very quick breakfast (bagel, prepackaged cereal, etc.) for about $5-6 and skip the slower restaurant if you're running late for a morning meeting.

Overall, a great hotel for a business trip. Hopefully, they'll resolve the housekeeping issues.
