“The best valet parking service ever.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2013

Me and my wife came to the Westin for our honeymoon. We were promptly greeted by Jose Alvarado. He opened the door for my wife and insisted to get her bags out of the trunk for her. I've never had such friendly valet service or worked with someone so willing to do anything to make our hotel stay more memorable. We would definitely recommend this hotel to our friends and family solely because of Jose's sincere warm greeting.

A little oasis in the middle of downtown Tampa. I stayed here once after checking out of a doubletree in the area. I had no advance reservation, but they gave me a great deal when I told them what happened at Doubletree. The young lady at the desk was great and I have now been back twice since then. Great quiet area and within walking distance of a few restaurants, Starbucks, etc. Love the property.

You're paying $185 for location. Rooms are OK, but there are frustrations. Internet service is an extra charge (almost always included in properties costing 1/2 as much...go figure???). And it was tediously slow, like dial-up of a decade ago. There are postings, as well as a letter in the room, acknowledging deferred mainatenance, but assuring guests of plans to upgrade. What about a discount NOW, to compensate for the list of shortcomings? Furniture legs are made of sharp metal. I stubbed my toe and made a bloody mess. The front desk was very helpful with first aid. But the manager who was supposed to follow up and check up on my condition never did. Whatever. In sum, if you need the Harbour Island location, the property is works. Just don't expect more than a Super 8 at twice the price.

Room Tip: North side of building has nice views of downtown and waterways.

Stayed here last weekend (Feb. 2013). My son received a scholarship to UT and we were in town to tour the campus. We were upgraded to a GIANT suite and then were sent up a basket of "sweets" with a note to my son congratulating him on the scholarship and that noting that it was a "suite" deal! VERY VERY NICE. Also sent up dessert and fruit before bed. Location is awesome on Harbour Island. Close to the campus and Riverwalk, and right next to the convention center. We self parked and it was definitley crowded, but attendants helped direct us to a good area to park. Gaspirilla Distance Classic was in town, and the hotel was handing out Gatorade and water to not only the participants, but anyone that wanted some in the lobby. They definitley take care of thier customers. No club lounge, but breakfast was fantastic including made to order omelettes. Fantastic views of the water. Tampa had a water main break occur on Saturday, and the entire city was under a "boil water" order. We received a note under our door, and the staff brought up LOTS Of extra bottled water to use. When I called the front desk to discuss what was happening, the girl that helped me was AWESOME and talked to me until I was comfortable in understanding what was going on. Negatives? It is a convention hotel and the lobby is plain and dated. I really feel bad complaining AT ALL about the room because it was amazing, but the furniture needs upgrading. Pool and area around it is nothing special at all. Limited space on the water, but they stiill could do more with it. I will definitely be here time and time again if my son goes to school here, and will choose this hotel again for sure.

Beautiful Property. Super staff. Wonderful Experience. I attended a meeting at Westin Harbour Island and found a staff that was Super, a wonderful view and a clean room. Everything was fantastic. I will be back in the fall for another meeting and am looking forward to it since it will be a longer stay.

Stayed at this Hotel during Tampas Gasparilla Distance Classic in Feb 2013. (It was the race hotel) What can I say it was FANTASTIC. Its close to a couple great places to eat, Bars and within walking distance to the Convention Center and the newly revitalized Riverwalk. The reception staff was exceptional and the room was great. The staff went out of there way to ensure the Race participants were taken care of with water/gatorade etc. We enjoyed a quiet nights stay despite there being a hotel full of runners waiting for their races!
Would definitely recommend this hotel!
