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!!

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.

The Westin = The Bestin?

Beautiful location situated on Harbour Island in Downtown Tampa. The Florida Aquarium is nearby and is def worth checking out. Hotel was very clean and quiet. My only gripes are the daily parking fee($15 self $20 valet), internet fee and breakfast not included. But those faults didnt discourage us from extending our stay another night. The location is great, rooms were extremely clean and the bed was really comfortable. ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz

would not recommend

I would not recommend hotel to anyone. It def did not meet up to the Westin standards. The beds where not very heavenly either. I have stayed at the Westin in Atlanta, that was great! This not so much.. sorry Stay at the Marriott or Embassy Suites in Tampa.

"Nice overnight get-away"

Staff very friendly and basically the hotel was nice - nothing above ordinary. Hotel definitely shows signs of age - carpets stained and worn. Room was comfortable - bed linens clean, bathroom spotless - but again, nothing out of ordinary. Great location to Channelside - within walking distance. Good value for the money we spent.

Great nightlife at Jacksons which is right next door to hotel - short walk to Channelside - or even shorter walk to take the Trolly

Out of the way - but close to downtown

Nice, Clean, out of the way but also very close to downtown and fun places to eat, people watch, and a walk and a cable car hop to the hip places. Parking Garage looks like a set out of a horror movie- you keep looking over your shoulder into the shadows (and they have lots of dim places). Water dripping from garage roof - needs to be fixed. I was surprised my car was still there in the morning. Parking Garage -10 Hotel +7
