“Good Hotel, Excellent Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

Stayed here after a less than good experience with another chain in Tampa, it proved to be a very good option. Solid Westin hotel with good facilities that offers excellent value. The hotel was clean and the location fine. What made the stay was the quality of the staff. Front desk, bar and the crew by the door were all professional, helpful and friendly; they really make this place. The gym was good and the wifi and everything else worked fine. For business or vacation this is a good option.

Our son was in Tampa General Hospital. This hotel did everything to help us decompress from sitting all day next to a hospital bed. Close to the hospital, nice room, friendly bar and good food. They even gave us free parking for our stay. They also have a Tampa General room rate.

Room Tip: Great views from top floor

Second time at this hotel. Staff were as before, very nice and polite. Was upgraded to a supposedly Premium room (small but with water view) on the Executive floor but it was frankly not Westin standard; which makes me wonder what other normal rooms are like. There was mould around the tollet cover, the paper roll holder was lopsided which made the roll fall off constantly. Carpet in room and corrider desperately needs cleaning. Being a Platinum member, I always try to book a Westin because of the belief that the rooms are of a higher standard than the Sheraton. Unfortunately this room put paid to this notion. Breakfast was good and as were the restaurant staff. Nice area around the hotel to walk along the river or to downtown.
Why does a waterview room command a name like Premium ? How long can one stand around in a room looking out of the window. More important is that a room is comfortable, welcoming and clean.

Beautiful views with wonderful, helpful associates always at this Harbour Island hotel. There was a large convention going on when I was last there, but no interruption of the marvelous one-on-one attention I always receive from the front desk, room service and bell staff--y'all are the best! There are several hotels on Harbour Island but I can't imagine a friendlier, more helpful staff that at this Westin. Quiet rooms, the amazing Westin beds-ahhhh-make for a restful nights sleep. And the Starbucks in-room coffee is a welcome bonus-thanks!

Green Features: Always love to see the recycle trash cans available in the rooms.

Had a great room this weekend at the Westin Tam Harbour Island - the corner suite is well worth the upgrade. We had a beautiful view of downtown and enjoyed the weekly Saturday night fireworks that are shot from Channelside during the summer. Upon entering the lobby, you are welcomed with the trademark Westin "white tea" smell that automatically gets things started on the right foot.The room was nicely furnished, but I was surprised by the small size of the bathroom especially considering the massive closet right next to it. I mean, this closet was huge. Perhaps space better used for a separate bath tub and larger shower. In the end, it is a business-traveler hotel, and perhaps a huge tub/shower isn't priority one.

The staff at check-in and throughout the visit were very attentive and knowledgeable, making good suggestions for things to do and places to go. We had one meal at "The Bar", as their bar is appropriately named - was a little disappointed the main restaurant was not open as it had good reviews, but the full menu was available at "The Bar"

Definitely, definitely, definitely pay to valet park, as this selection is only $3 more than self parking AND gives you free wifi - otherwise $12.95/day.

Overall a very nice hotel for a quick getaway from Orlando and we will definitely return for another one!
