Held my daughter's wedding there, the staff was great the event coordinator Delaynna was wonderful, she made sure my wife and daughter's questions/concerns were met, the atmosphere and food were great all the quests remarked at how well the event went. Would have no problem holding my other daughter's wedding here.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NickM A sub-par experience for an SPG category 4 establishment
1. Breakfast location was excellent, so were the buffet selections and the staff.
2. Proximity of parking garage accessible by a common elevator.
1. In-room dining guide was missing in the room. After requesting one, a grumpy looking guy came up with a breakfast menu which I already had, saying that's all they got in housekeeping. Finally on 2nd attempt I got the real one delivered.
2. In-room service was sloppy - one soda didn't get delivered. Pricing was incorrect on an appetizer. The delivery staff said she would get that corrected and then simply disappeared. I had to specifically ask for a corrected receipt afterwards.
3. At the bar - I would expect a basic drinks/cocktail menu which they didn't have. And we literally had to call the waitress every time to come to our table - she wouldn't show up on her own.
3. Temperature control in the shower was horrible - jumped from burning hot to very cold and I just couldn't get a nice temperature.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Todd27 Not up to par with other Westin properties
The hotel elevators are under renovation. The hotel is very noisy, you can hear everything that goes on in the hallway and your neighbors using the restroom. The fitness room is a bit cramped. Bedding is nice and double shower heads are great. There is a weird smell in the hallways, may be related to renovations.

Very pleasant hotel which made for a comfortable stay. The location was easy to find and check in was a breeze. The room was clean but not modern and held several misplaced furniture items. The downstairs lobby lounge was modern and refreshing. Overall a good choice when staying in tampa downtown area.

Hotel and Staff was very nice and helpfull. Cleanliness of room and hotel was very clean. It was disappointed that Wi-Fi was only available in the bar area. Not many places to dine. Overall a very nice hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CP07 excellent service
Staff went above and beyond to meet my needs. Justin and Jessica at the front desk were excellent ambassadors - pleasant, attentive, made me feel like I was the only guest. Even when they messed up my room service order, every staff felt empowered and well trained to do service recovery. Excellent stay overall!

Hotel has poor security. All floors can be accessed directly from the unsecured garage. Design of hotel is awkward. Expected more from great location but physical building is lacking despite current renovations. Staff is very good -best part of hotel. Staff involved in hosting meetings were very professional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skullman72 Its been a long time
since I have experienced the customer service attention to detail like I received at check in. Kudos to your front desk staff (Derrick or Darrin?, sorry I cannot recall his name) and your valet staff, both of which surprised me with their honest enthusiasm and genuine desire to make my stay a pleasant one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cquestel Service is EXCELLENT
The staff at the Westin Harbour Island exceeded my expectations on every level. As a Platinum Member for several years , I would use this experience as a service template for all Starwood Properties. A special thanks to Claudio at the Front Desk and Tito at the Valet. The coordinated effort was outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deb19 Hotel under renovation
While renovations are a good thing they can be disruptive. The elevators took forever until we found the service elevators. I was not told out the green option and cold have earned more Starwood points. We were not told about the program on check in. Only told as checked out. Concierge was very helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Don1231 Disappointment from such a nice place
Laundry and drying cleaning services were awful! Itr is a shame to ruin such a great experience with clothes that were returned unpressed and unclean! Shirts were marked heavy starch and returned with NO starch! It was if they were sent out to some discount establishment with no regard for customer care.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Noramm Great stay!
I stayed 3 nights. The staff was great! I told the lady at the front desk that I was starting a new job when I got back to the hotel from work the next day, she asked me how my first day went. The view is excellent, the bed is very comfortable, the room is spacious. Overall great!

Last night we checked in and out of the WESTIN TAMPA HARBOUR ISLAND.
While the location is excellent, the overall experience was NOT consistent with Westin Brand. Feel free to e-mail or call us for more information.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PerpetualTraveller Nice hotel with great staff
This hotel is very pleasant and has some charm despite the size and age of this
The staff is doing a wonderful work, not only they are professional and efficient but they also manage to be friendly and warm; especially Jessica & Lauren at the front desk and Murat at the bar.
A highly recommended hotel.

The entire staff from valet to room service was excellent! Would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Tampa on business or leisure. The pool was quite small but we enjoyed it the same as if it was a large pool. Check-in was a breeze and I will indeed return when I'm in the Tampa area.

Thank you to the staff and managers at The Westin Tampa Harbour Island.
When we checked in and went to our room, we had trouble with the lock getting into and out of our room. The manager immediately switched our room and upgraded it.
We had an excellent time during our stay for the BICSI conference

All hotel staff were great. Eddie and claudio went above and beyond to make our stay excellent. We enjoyed many of the hotels amenities and were only a short drive to dale mabry and our cruise. The vallets made great recommendations and created an excellent trip. We will definitely be back. Thanks

Rated 3 out of 5 by roc1203 Hotel was ok
Upon check in didn't have our room ready and took long time to get two reservations into one room. Supervisor had to get involved. Gym is dirty and some equipment didn't.work. We had to wait 25 minutes to get table for breakfast. Only good part, people that work there are very helpful and nice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rm916 Horrendous experience
Privacy was intruded upon. Someone literally came into my room without knocking as I was fully undressed. Food service is appalling. Malfunctioning equipment in my room. Erroneous parking charges added to my bill when I didn't even have a car! Stay clear....you're not a guest, you are a wallet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by John442012 Rooms need to be refreshed
Very nice location on Harbour Island. Lobby and common areas well kept but rooms are very plain. Hardly any decorations, art, pictures/frame, etc. Had two rooms and the sink was broken in one of them; significant oversight. Staff and service were great but overall experience was average at best.

I stay at this hotel regularly. The staff is fantastic, very comfortable atmosphere and decor. some freshening is needed, but projects seem to be ongoing. great bar. the food is good, but the dinner menu is quite limited for regular guests; a weekly dinner special would be a welcome addition.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TJS1960 Underwhelmed
I stay at SPG Hotels at least twice a month and this was one of the worst rooms. First room i had wad next to service elevator and next room i was in lacked the basics, IE full length mirror. I found the level of service to be ambivilent. One of the worst SPG experiences ever.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dav70 Comfort of common areas
The temperature in the common areas was
VERY uncomfortable. Way to cold. Mentioned it to different hotel employees and the typical answer was- we will have our engineer check on it.
I actually left the restaurant the second morning of my stay without ordering breakfast because it was so cold.

Had a wonderful time in Tampa, accented with your incredible staff. Jose and the door staff helped us with our bikes and even gave us towels when we came back drenched! A leaky faucet was fixed immediately as well.

The staff at the Westin were very friendly and accommodating, not only during my stay, but also by phone taking care of my requests prior to arriving. Any concern I had was taken care of immediately. The rooms were clean and comfortable. When I am in Tampa again, I will definitely stay here!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by bigdaddynyc2006 Nice stay
This was a nice Westin. The staff were very helpful and responsive to my request. I have a issue with the tv in the room and they resolved the issue within minutes. Room service was fast and the food was delicious. The elevator door to the pool had several tears and the ride down was loud.

The staff was exceptionally friendly from front desk and engineer to maids and room service. The room view of the Harbour was absolutely amazing and room was nice size and comfortable. At price point, a nice combo gift and convenient shop was expected but only had small snack store.

Three front desk agents stood out to me during my recent vacation in Tampa. Angela, Micheal, and Adriana, went above and beyond in service to make my stay as enjoyable as possible. They were very helpful in extending my reservation and making my stay go smoothly as possible.

WOW! Beautiful location & fabulous Westin/W facility--but what made this place outstanding was the exceptional people who work there from valet to housekeeping! They were constantly customer-focused, generous in their service, and warm to us as visitors--felt like home!
