The Westin Tampa Waterside

Reviewed 3 July 2014

I stayed two nights last weekend at this hotel and had a nice stay. I was able to check-in early and the front desk clerk was friendly and informative. The lobby area was spotless and inviting. The parking garage was nice to keep our vehicle out of the hot summer heat. The location of the hotel is great. We had a concert to attend at the Times Forum and it was an easy, safe walk to that venue. Our room was clean and well-maintained.

From the moment I booked this hotel I received first class treatment. I received a welcome email prior to my arrival and on the day of my arrival the front desk staff was extremely courteous and very helpful. The hotel shuttle was also very helpful. This hotel is close to everything and within close proximity to the cruise port as well. We had a nice view of the harbor. We had a slight problem with the shower and spraying water but called the front desk and the maintenance team was up to the room immediately to fix the issue. I would definitely recommend this hotel if traveling to the Tampa area.

Great location with scenic view along the water. We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times thus far, and the suites are particularly spacious and comfortable. Mike N. has welcomed us at the front desk for our last two visits. In addition to always being professional and courteous, he has gone above and beyond to make us feel like valued SPG Platinum members. Thank you, Mike!

Constructively, we would suggest investing in the maintenance of the pool (broken pieces of floor bottom were in water and pool wasn't as clean as should be). The location and size of the pool, however, were great. The hallways in the hotel need renovating - the carpet and walls look dated.

Overall, we do recommend this property. The location, view, and staff are terrific, and the suites are worth the upgrade. We also enjoyed the fitness center.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large with plenty of windows and sun

Great location and attentive staff. Most rooms have a nice view of the harbor. Rooms are large and everything worked. You are close to all attractions in Tampa or take a taxi to Ybor City or the baseball stadium.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at your facility for several days attending a Military reunion. From the ease and convenience of parking to the helpful desk attendant the check in and initial arrangements were without a hitch. The room was clean and well maintained and all of the staff with which we had a chance to interact were quite attentive to our needs. We were part of a large gathering, and the staff accommodated all of our needs and wishes with a smile. The food at Jackson,s was outstanding. I would have no hesitation in recommending your facility to other groups, or individuals, wishing to have a pleasant experience in the Tampa area.

Room Tip: Our room had a great view. The check in individual chose for us and we were quite pleased.

The hotel was located on the water close to downtown, Ybor City, the cruise terminal, and lots of restaurants. The room was fairly large and the Harborside view from the room was beautiful. You pay extra for parking (self $17, valet $20 per day) and the parking garage is underground. We had a lot of trouble getting in & out of the room with our room key card and saw others with the same problem. The door attendants were incredibly helpful and friendly. I would stay there again.

the facilities were clean & well maintained; great view from our room. The staff was uniformly helpful, accomodating and pleasantly attentive.The wait staff in the restaurant dealt with the overflow of our group (12 at a table set up for 6) each morning for breakfast in a professional and good natured way. I would recommend the hotel to anyone planning a visit to Tampa.
