Rated 4 out of 5 by Lou0607 Only one serious issue with this hotel!
The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are great, the restaurant is great, but they have no service elevator! I needed to be at a meeting in the morning and 3 elevators were taken up completely with housekeeping staff and their supplies. There was NO room for guests. The housekeeping staff said I could not squeeze in. Eventually, I looked for a stairwell and in the meantime, found another set of elevators that I was able to use. It took 20 minutes to get from Floor 5 to Ground level! This should be fixed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cayman My Stay at Tampa Sheraton
The staff is etreeemly friendly! very professional and proficient and always go that extra mile to ensure that all my needs are met. The fitness center and the large heated indoor pool gets my day off to a great start after working out on the equipment and ending it with a good swim. They also have a scrumptious buffet to really get things going. Its near to two major malls, West shore and International Plaza. Excellent shopping around the area. Perfect place to stay in Tampa!!! even for business!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Edarg Somewhat disappointing.
Nice large room but we did experience more than average amount of problems. Hot water was a huge issue for both sink and shower. The TV in the bedroom had no sound. The TV in the other room worked at first and then we did not have any reception, cable. Breakfast on Saturday morning may have been the worst experience I have had traveling. It was a CLUSTER! Not much food at the buffet. I had to sit at the bar and eat. 2 waitresses were yelling at each other. Really quite unbelievable .

I spent two nights at the Sheraton Westshore in early March. I was there for a pool tournament. The beds at this hotel were just terrible. The mattresses sunk so much I woke up with a huge back ache. After the first morning I went to the front desk to ask to be moved and was told the entire hotel has the same bed and that they knew the beds were terrible and were going to do something about it. This didnt help me of course and with the back ache I had I had a miserable tournament. Trying to bend over a table to shoot when your back is just wrecked...well you can guess the result.
Parking at this hotel is also an issue if you come back to the hotel late. Both nights we got back to the hotel after midnite and ended up parking in a gravel road adjacent to the hotel next door to a steakhouse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Guoqing LOVED it
I was in Tampa for a conference and I stayed here the day before my flight. To my surprise, this Sheraton was NOT what I expected for an airport property - simply too sophisticated. The front desk was very polite and thanked me for my loyalty with SPG when checking in and said the same thing at check-out. Shuttle driver was fun to talk to...btw, the driver was trying to reject my second tip but I insisted that he have it. The guest room was huge and room service was fast. I ordered two entrees for myself and they were both very good. The only flaw, if I have to come up with one to help improve the property, was that the bathroom had just a tiny bit of old pee smell. But I have been told to have super sensitive nose, so...Something about this property made me want to spend ALL my money here!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RJA5233 Brief 1 night stay
We checked in late and our SPG status was not acknowledged. The suite was large and completely renovated. The bathroom was small but quite adequate. The living room was very large and the bedroom was a decent size as well. Both had a large LCD flat screen TV. The entire suite was very clean. Unfortunately we checked out early and didn't really have an opportunity to take advantage of the nice quarters. Upon checkout our SPG status was acknowledged and the reservation person was very friendly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Barracks82 This place is a dump
Unclean rooms and worn down decor was only a prelude to no one available in the dining room for breakfast. The buffet was terrible. The place features spotty internet connections and terrible TV reception and no one showed up to fix it. Without a doubt the worst Starwood property I have visited in the last 10 years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lizz17 a bit disapointing
Very nice hotel with great food and nice indoor pool. However there are daily swimming lessons which we were not informed of and were kicked out of shallow end of pool which we needed. I talked to management and all they could say was sorry. A/c broke in room/carpet was all wet had to get up for service at 1145pm. alarm clock went off at 300am that someone in room before us had set and fire alarm went off at 645 am. so overall not much sleep. I would have appreciated a discount or credit towards next stay. I was offered nothing. Beds super comfy. Asked for additional conditioner as we had 3 teenage girls with long hair and I was given a bag of body lotion. for a Sheraton I expected more. Area was nice. Really would have like partial discount or credit toward next stay for all the inconveniences.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DannyMo Good hotel, but needs improvement
This hotel could be great if it made a few improvements. First, the elevator situation is horrible! Out of 4 elevators, at least 2 were out of order all week! Plus, there are no stairs accessible to walk to the lower floors. When large groups all get back at the same time it makes for long waits to get back to your room, especially when the elevators that do work are very slow.
Also, the shower in my room wasn't very good and had a leak in the pan which caused water to run onto the floor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CruisingFamily2013 Post cruise stay
We used this hotel for a post cruise stay. It was in a good location and easy to find while in an unfamiliar city. The front desk personnel were friendly and helpful. It was busy upon check-in, but the staff made sure to make us feel welcome by suggesting restaurants nearby and answering questions we had. The room was comfortable, the bedding and bathroom was clean. On close inspection, we did find popcorn from a previous guest. Overall, we had a good stay and would use this hotel aagain.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Challenger6013a Very bad!
No internet connection!
Before being moved the room was a disaster! Dirty floor!
When moved a bit better but very hard to connect on the internet.
I had to play with the toilet flush to have it stopped running!
Breakfast buffet was totally disgusting!!! Cold and not good!!!
My experience at that hotel was very very bad and will not go there again and will not recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ashly This hotel is wonderful
The hotel was amazing for travel. I got a suite at a great price and the ammenities were very nice. I loved having a balcony and the location was wonderful for dining and a BUCS game, which is what the trip was for. The staff was friendly and kept up with everything, including towels at the pool, which is indoor - great for rainy days in Florida, or anything I wanted in my room. I would definently stay at this hotel again... best experience I have had in a while, and we love to travel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cutlass72 Great Stay and Job By All
The front Desk agent who checked me in was outstanding (bad with names and forgot to write down) warm, friendly and knowledgable. Just doing the job the way it should be done. The hotel is obviously an older property that has been through various re-models but I am quite impressed in the manner of quality and care that has gone into it. The elevators were not functioning on my stay, which was no big deal for me but I feel bad for the staff that has to deal with disgruntled guests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flyboy1085 very satisfied expierence
I stayed at this hotel several times over that past few months on business and each time I had a positive expierence. Having been a GM with a national chain previously, I look for more than just that first hello or smile. I found that each staff member that I delt with was very professional and provided me with quality customer service. My room was clean and my bed very comfortable.I would recommend to others and stay there again if it was pleasure. Good job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by slinky Sheraton Suites stay
This hotel was very nice. The biggest issue was that the second elevator was not working and you had to wait a long time for the elevator to take you up or down. Also, the hair dryer in the room only blew cold air when on hot, so it needs to be replaced. The last things is as a gold member I would have thought that internet would be complimentary and not have a charge of $9.99 per day. Their pool and workout facilities were very nice and the ombiance of the lobby area was lovely.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DeeD This hotel needs improvement
The beds were like sleeping on cotton, no back support. Once you laid down, it was like the mattress was folding in on you. The bath tub was slippery-waiting for a major accident. The hotel's elevators were very disappointing, out of the four elevators only one of the two at each end worked. The manager-who is a female appeared impatient and defensive of any questions relative to performance of the hotel. Poor and unprofessional management skills. Overall, I wouldn't return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by yanoale07 NOT ALL STAFF IS HELPFUL
The overall stay was good and I am a Happy Starwood member. Only issue is that I was not acknowledged at the time of check in as a starwood member and it seemed to bother the employee that I requested my upgrade and confirmed my free internet. I did not feel welcomed at all. I also left an item in the room and when I called the hotel to notify them, I was advised that nothing could be done because the housekeeping manager was gone for the day and the hotel manager was too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ddailey Good stay in great location
This hotel is not far from anything in tampa. There is a great mall about one mile away, downtown and the aquarium only 5-10 minute drive, same for the buccaneers statium. And busch gardens about 15-20 minute drive. The staff was very friendly. The room was comfortable, but it seemed as though the bed frame was broken and higher at the foot of the bed. Not bad enough to complain about. Good breakfast buffet too. Some road noise could be heard from I-275 in the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Manju A great experience.
We arrived at this hotel for the Repiblican National Convention and immediately were greeted by the best front desk staff we had ever met. Brooke took care of our needs professionally. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the meeting rooms and breakfast buffet, as well as the restaurant. Bus service and drivers to local venues were exceptional. The manager's personal attention was appreciated. We loved having a top-quality hotel for our stay in Tampa.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JB25 Stay was ok-not to Sheraton standards
I have stayed at this hotel on 3 occassions now and have been disappointed on each stay for different reasons. The common areas and the staff are both above average.
On previous stays I have been turned off by worn and stained carpets and moldy fridges. This stay I was situated with a room backing on the highway. It was extremely noisy. The drapes did not shut properly and it lacked a clock and other minor ammenities I would expect from a Sheraton hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pm726 Southeast Regional Meeting
Everything at the hotel was just fine. Two things that would make it better. (1) Free internet access in the room. (2) Hot breakfast buffet included with the room.
I had to hire a taxi to take me to the airport on Sunday morning. However, I would not expect the hotel shuttle to be running at 3:45 AM!
At our Saturday night banquet, the tables, designed to seat 8 had 10 seated around them. That made things extremely tight. Mature adults need more room, not less.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Steve70 The Room Was Filthy
My room was filthy when I arrived. I went to open the curtain and it was so filthy I did not want to touch it. There were dirty ,toothpicks on the floor that remained there from Monday to Sunday. There was dirt on the bathroom floor that was just moved around each day.
The shower/tub was not cleaned soap wrapper and used washcloths were never removed.
I asked for extra towels when my wife arrived and there were less in my room when I returned from Yankee Camp.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ksea23 Hotel had some issues with the elevator
Hotel seemed to have out of the four elevators -two out of service which made it difficult to get up and down to our room and with a 2 year old that makes more of a challenge since they don’t have a concept of waiting. We used the stairs once but we are on the 8th floor so that as well is not the easiest – not sure if both elevators were under repair but you may want to re think taking two of the four out of service and only doing one at a time in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MLopez Needs improvement
I was there for the ACDC Soccer Tournament with lots of other soccer teams.
The bathroom has a lot of moisture on the ceiling more likely due to the lack of fan. There were moisture stains on the ceiling. The toilet takes at least 10 mins before you can flush again..and if you shower within that 10 mins, the water is scalding hot.
Breakfast was less than satisfactory. There were no plates when I went to grab breakfast. When plates came out, there were no eggs or bacon. I've had my reservations for weeks which meant the hotel is aware of the upcoming soccer tournament. I expected for the facility to staff up for that event.
I do love the size of the room & the separation between the front room & the sleeping quarter. Its great for when the (soccer) girls want to hang out. With some improvements this hotel would be at least a 4star.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CJJSr Notification and guidance aroun elevator issues was non existent.
Several issues with this property.
1. No bell bell staff offered to assist me and my boys as we were checking in. We had to get our own luggage cart. After complaining about this at checkout, the front desk clerk failed to ask if we needed help now.
2. Housekeeping was atrocious. Our room was never vacuumed. One of us experienced a cut in the bathroom and the blood stain remained on the floor for 2 days.
3. Never had sufficient # of towels or face cloths. We always had to call and ask for more and had to make a follow up calls each time.
4. Now where on the website was there mention of the issues with 3 of the 4 elevators being out of service. Guests had to wait a much as 15 minutes in some cases and when the elevator showed up, it was not capable of carrying all of the guests that had been waiting.
5. Parking was insufficient.

We have stayed here for 4 years when we come down for Yankee Spring Training Games. The hotel and staff are very nice and convenient to everything. Quick drive to the games, to the airport, to surrounding area attractions and delicious restaurants. The breakfast buffet at the hotel is great and very convenient. We love that the hotel is all suites and no smoking is allowed. We find it to be very clean and are very pleased. We plan on staying next year.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Destingirl Not a safe place to stay
We had our vehiicle broken into on Froday 8/10 sometime after midnight and several items stolen. There were three other cars broken into as well. We had our truck locked and the alarm set. The hotel needs night time security. You are obviously aware of this problem noting the signs all over the parking lot that you are not responsible for stolen items or break ins. There was also no in room safe avaialble so I had to secure place to store my valuables.

While the rooms/overall hotel met our expectations the dining experience was extremely poor for breakfast. We were there as part of a soccer tournament, and they were ill prepared for us. Ran out of food, utensils etc, it was terrible and we have booked well in advance and had called the hotel to make sure they were prepared.
The employees were friendly and apologetic, and the rooms and such were good, but the dining left a lot to be desired.

We arrived at midnight and were told there was no hot water. We skipped our showers for the evening and slept in . We woke to no water at all. Could not flush the toilet, brushed teeth with bottled water, skipped showers. Stay was little above camping. Facility is pretty rundown for a Sheraton. Front desk gave us no satisfaction in the morning upon checkout, but called later to give us some Starwood points. Not a memorable stay on Valentine's Day.
