WESTIN??

Only one desk staff at 10:30pm resulting in a 20 minute wait to get a room key. Aging property with prominent mold/mildew odor.

Just OK

The hotel seemed nice enough from the pictures but once you got inside, you could tell it was dated and not very well kept up. Definitely not up to Westin standards. The room was clean enough but walls are thin and you can hear just about everything. We mainly booked this hotel because we were going to a Tampa Bay Lightening game and it was within walking distance to the St Pete Times Forum. Went to the hotel bar after the game and the bartender was walking out of the bar when we came in. Waited another 10 minutes and then just went back to our room since the bartender had not come back.

not westin quality

Staff over phone was rude when we asked for an early check in. Also, westin advertises 10% off the Alamo rental from the hotel, but Alamo knows nothing about it.Front desk staff helpful when we arrived. Room basic, but needs updating. Had to ask for toilet paper and towels- two towels for three guests. Elevators very slow to.the point hotel allowing guests to use service elevators. We had family drop off two items at front desk and got a snotty attitude from woman working front desk when I asked for them. They need lesson in customer service. The westin in the other area of Tampa much better and cheaper. Harbour island westin not worth the money.

A high-end wanna-be

Very nice facility, but extremely over priced. At $500+ a night, I expect a turndown service, maybe even a chocolate. The room had complimentary water bottle....one...small bottle. At $200....this would have been a very nice stay.

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.

Ok but not a A+

Place was a bit dated. Staff on the otherhand was nice. Lobby is on a upper floor and found that to be weired. Lots of noise threw the walls and from the hallway. You can hear room doors slamming shut all night. Veiw from room was wonderful. Location was short walking distance to convention center. They charge for there 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.

"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
