Westin Tampa Bay Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very clean , has a Starbucks which is always a plus , very comfortable bed , loved the bathroom !

This is an excellent hotel and staff was very nice. There were a couple minor hiccups like they offered us a complimentary dessert from room service when we checked in and then charged us. They did fix it when I asked them about it on check out. They also lost our keys at valet parking because they miss numbered our car which took twenty minutes to find. They were very nice but did have the mess up. This is the second time we stayed here and it is an excellent service with a caring staff. I would highly recommend it. The rooms are upgraded and very spacious as well as comfortable.

We went to this Westin for a Valentine's getaway this past weekend. The room was beautiful with great views of the Bay, the location of the hotel was the perfect location for us (relatively close to good restaurants and Busch Gardens). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back if ever in the area again!

The room is expensive enough @ 180 and then they charge you for parking and wifi in addition. Even the fridge is unusable because they pack it with their own overpriced garbage (which if you even touch, gets billed because it is linked to some automated restocking system or so their excuse) and there is no room at all left for anything that needs refrigerating. I understand that nicer rooms come with a higher price and I am fine with that, but for $180 per night, they should not in addition expose you to every scam that exists under the sun to make more money. Here is my suggestion for them to make even more money, why don't they also charge for electricity and maybe also a charge for the room having a window, and while they're at it, why not charge for having to make the bed ?

Clean room, great location, staff was courteous. Would stay here again.

This is the second time i have stayed at this hotel and it is beautiful! Clean, great location!

Must visit rusty pelican near the hotel for bottomless mimosas on the weekend. Overall, great experience!

We had a nice stay there. There is a patch of sand in the back that has some nice chairs to lay on. The bar was very busy and fun. We would go back.

Great stay. Pleasant staff. Not a great location, but the hotel itself is nice with on-site Starbucks

Hotel is beautiful, great views from rooms. Beach is nearly non-existent with few chairs to lay out. Pool is indoor and not appealing. The bar is great. Breakfast is overpriced - recommend just going to Starbucks in the lobby.

This stay is my sixth stay at the Westin and the experience is always perfect.. Food at the Aqua Lounge is great. Make sure the Aqua Burger is on your agenda before you leave.. I am a local and the Westin Tampa Bay is my first choice

We loved staying at this hotel. It was nice, clean, and the staff were overly friendly and helpful. About 30 minutes from Clearwater Beaches and a lititle less to Busch Gardens.

This is a beautiful hotel, very classy. Just wished they served a free breakfast!

We booked this hotel for 4th of July and we had a great experienced. The location was perfect ( close to a lot great restaurant) and has its own full size coffee shop to hang out , view was amazing ( we stayed in 9th floor has already great view ), service in valet and check in , bar ( margarita was awesome compare to a lot of bar i went to , restaurant ( c/o Kevin ) was excellent, food was excellent, room was perfect size and very clean ( no distinct odor, smells fresh) bathroom was modern and clean and the whole property was awesome. They give you $5 gift card that you can use towards any purchase within the property if you don't want them to clean your room.The only downside was no complimentary internet access , no complimentary breakfast and cant access the refrigerator bec if you touch the content you will be charged but they can provide one if you need one just call the front desk. Valet parking or self parking charged you $5 , a lot better than other hotel , they charge more than that although some hotel are free if you are a guest. Over all, we had excellent experience and we definitely recommend this hotel

Indoor pool cold, but the room was great, very clean, restaurant onsite was very nice, great food

Clean, new, attentive and courteous staff, right on the bay, minutes from downtown and Clearwater. We'll be back!

I was in town for the weekend & perfect location...hotel shuttle was willing to take me anywhere within a reasonable area from hotel & cabs weren't bad to town...definitely stay there again next time in Tampa

we had a very good experience, the location was perfect, all the attractions were very close

There is nothing within walking distance.If you park your car you must take the hotel shuttle to very limited locations.Restaurant only had very expensive buffets during our stay.We had to take the shuttle to have meals. Some wait times to be picked up was excessive.

Had a fantastic stay with a room with a great view. The staff was super awesome for taking time to take a few pictures of us before the braves - rays game. Braves won! Go Bravos! And thanks for a great stay.
