OK hotel

Hotel was average but a little dated in the common areas and pool area. Unfortunately, the hotel has no respect for physically disabled guests as they repeatedly used handicap parking spaces for valet parking. When valet was informed, he apologized. However, it continued throughout our stay. The front desk denied it. Yet they did nothing to correct the issue after they were informed.

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.

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.

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.

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.
