Vacation too short

Room and view were great. Not much else. Beach and hotel were much smaller than photos. Located at end of Gulf Blvd before bridge, so not as convenient to walk to pier and center of Clearwater Beach. Nice to have free parking and Internet.

It's not a typical Westin

I can't recommend this location. The property is uninviting and beat up. The room however was clean and all of the staff was friendly and helpful. There is a fair amount of nickel and diming. It's $17 per night to park, and by the way, you're captive-- there are no other options, no public transit, no street parking. It is unacceptable at a Westin room rate to charge an additional $12.95 for internet access. The property is centered in a hollowed out little shopping mall overlooking a hospital and a run-down convention center. There's a restaurant in the complex, and if you take a mile walk past the aquarium and the Forum there's a bowling alley and shopping center.
