Physical Therapy Conference

My daughter and I had a very comfortable 4-day stay. I found the staff to be very friendly and very helpful. The room was more than what I had expected. It was very comfortable except that there wasn't any way to remove the steam from the bathroom after showers/baths. The view was wonderful. I was able to watch some sort of creature loaf around in the northside channel. It may have been a manatee but I was never able to get a close enough look to identify it. It was there more than one day though. That would have been the icing on the cake if it had been a manatee.

Jackson's Bistro has the best seafood for reasonable prices. My daughter and I ate there at least 4 times. And you can walk there from the hotel without going outside.

Friendly Staff-great location

We had a great experience. Every time we were at the elevators the front desk staff smiled and said hi. The pool area is nice and overlooks the water and complete with a tiki bar with fabulous frozen drinks. Try the frozen mojito!! Easy walk to the tram which can bring you to channel side (which is walking distance too) or to Ybor. The beds were soo comfortable!! We will be staying here again!!

A great value

Traveling with inlaws so I was hoping to make a good impression with my choice of hotels. Rooms were very comfortable and we had a great meal outside overlooking the river. We found our way to the nearby Casino, the primary purpose of our trip. Could be better directions to the pool area which was a challenge to find.

Not for a quiet weekend...

The bed was comfortable, the restaurant wonderful, the employees very nice. However, there is a club located on the premises that is extremely loud. You can even hear the techno music in the hotel room. Also, my husband and I left the hotel to walk around and get away from the loud music and there were drunk people yelling and vomiting out front.

IF there is a cheeper hotel stay there

I was here for a convention and was disappointed. The lay out was unfriendly for multiple vendors trying to display. The elevators didn't work well the entire stay and conference assistance was not helpful unless they were charging unreasonabely high prices. Overall I would stay accross the river at the Mariot. I am normally very satisfied with Westin hotels

Tampa Harbour Island

They had a group of teenagers staying at the hotel. The first room I was assigned to was sorrounded by them and the noise was too much. After unpacking in the room, had to pack again and move to another room. The new room, was not in great condition. The smoke alarm blinked it's lights the whole night (the battery had to be changed) and the front door was off jam and was difficult to open and close. TV channels limited. This is really a 3 Star hotel in a nice location, it is way overpriced.
