“Accomodating Staff, Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

Was in Tampa for only one night. The Westin is a GREAT location with beautiful views. We were there when the LSU team was in for the Outback Bowl...not planned but despite being very busy, the staff was great and very helpful. Would definitely recommend this prime location with very nice rooms.

My husband was a patient at Tampa General Hospital for over six months, and during his stay in the hospital, I was a resident of this wonderful hotel. They treated me like family. They have a shuttle service to the hospital, which I took advantage of every day. I would recommend the Westin to anyone needing to stay in the Tampa area. The entire staff from the valets to the front desk staff and room service personnel are wonderful people. The rooms are always very clean, and the housekeeping staff were always very nice. I always felt this hotel was my "home away from home".

Room Tip: I loved the rooms overlooking the Downtown Tampa area. The night views are wonderful.

We were here whilst the hotel was quite quiet but felt everything was top notch. The communal areas including the lobby, corridors, and the lift all felt large, spacious, clean, and modern... sets a good tone for the rest of the hotel.

We stayed in a king room on the 10th floor, which had beautiful views of the harbour. The room decor is nice and minimal giving it a modern feel. Bed large and extremely cosy and comfortable. Large bathroom is also, very convenient, with the usual amenities (shampoo, conditioner, body lotion etc). We ate downstairs at the bar and the food was good but nothing to write home about. Atmosphere and view were lovely though. We ordered breakfast to the room the next morning, which was beautifully served and tasted so good (especially the pancakes!).

In short, a great hotel with a clean, bright and airy feel.

We stayed at this recently renovated hotel; it had been an number of years since our last stay and we were very impressed not only with the renovations of the hotel common areas but also with the rooms! Service was absolutely impeccable. Location is excellent with pleasant walk to downtown venues. We walked to the St. Pete Times Forum and then easily accessed cab to a local favorite restaurant Mise en Place and easy return cab ride to hotel. The view of the harbor from our room was beautiful. Because of this wonderful experience, we will now consider Westin hotels before others!

We spent the night here as we flew into Tampa and we were on our way down the coast. The hotel location has to be one of the best available and there was a lot going on within a 5 minute walk. There are some great restaurants and takeouts close by. The only negative is that as this is obviously one of the cruise ship hotels it shows signs of high guest traffic as they all do but was still a clean room. I would recommend this hotel but guests should be aware of the obvious results of a hotel that supports the high traffic of the cruse industry.

Overall, it was decent, but it was definitely older and in need of a facelift and better care/maintenance & from what I could see this was in progress. The lobby area and dining areas were nice. The gym appeared to be nice too. Our room was clean, it had a mini refrigerator which was nice to have as well as a safe... the bed was comfy too. Our bathroom was ok, but again old with some rust around pipes under the sink. The water drained slowly during our showers. On a good note... The service was very good - the front desk sent us complimentary champagne & strawberries for our anniversary and comp'd the valet fees because of system issues related to our credit card. It was also nice to have daily newspapers free of charge available as well. We especially loved the location.. it was close to the Trolley which we took to Ybor City for dinner. It was right on the River Walk which we strolled daily downtown to breakfast and dinner. The weather was beautiful low 80s... We stayed for 2 days and never took our car - we walked everywhere. It definitely has potential, I look forward to returning again & seeing the end results of the facelift.

We checked in and the room AND toilet was dirty. Woke up the next morning and there were empty beer bottles by the elevator from the night before. Lobby by escalator had empty drinks everywhere. Seems they cater to Jacksons which is their "moneymaker". I will never stay there again even if for free. Couldn't wait to come home and shower.
