Rated 5 out of 5 by Locals Thanksgiving getaway
We spent Thanksgiving night here, with our two small dogs. We loved our room and all of the wonderful staff we encountered. We enjoyed room service for dinner and breakfast, and our dogs enjoyed the beds provided by the hotel. We will definitely be back to be pampered again, and we live only 20 miles away!

Rated 2 out of 5 by JoMama10 Not up to par
It was very cold for Florida in the 50's & room temp was set at 65!? Hallways had AC blasting!? Yet they are a green hotel b/c they offer not to wash towels daily?? In room wireless did not work at all, staff was to "reboot system". No improvement. I had late checkout, yet (as seems to be standard) that message doesn't make it it housekeeping who knocks even with the DND sign out. Disappointing for a Westin.

I dont know why these hotel bother with the club lounge probably one of the worst club lunges I have been in. Went up for snack at 6 pm wow 3 dried out danishes and a few cans of pop I am not joking. Went for breakfast day old bagels nice and hard and the butter and cream cheese where in big dish how unsanitary is that. I have had better breakfasts in a Motel.
Having said my peace there are a lot of things I like about this hotel great location right on a small beach in Tampa bay not bad.

This hotel did not provide the green choice points to my account. It's ridiculous that I have to chase spg.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PlatinumRon Hotel OK Westin Club Breakfast Not OK
Most of the staff was friendly. However, the hostess in the Club Lounge on Thursday morning Nov 14th was not. When I enterly the lounge for the complimentary continental breakfast, she came over and said very sharly "Sign In!", not good morning, would you please sign in? A few minutes later when I asked her to wipe down the soiled table so that I could use it, she said tersely "In a minute!"
Also, the quantity and quality of breakfast items in the Club room left a lot to be desired. I am a Platinum guest and it is the smallest amount of breakfast items that I have seen at a Westin Club continental breakfast. There was little fruit and there were only 4 pastries that were put out for guests.

This is a great property! I highly recommend. Great rooms, big spacious modern showers, fitness center, Club Lounge. Aqua Restaurant is also excellent. Club Lounge could be improved (scrambled eggs would be much appreciated; minimal selection). Abundant easy free parking. Very friendly staff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andrew333 Consistently Good experience
Another great business trip to Tampa and appreciate staying at this location.
Enjoy the option of both self parking and valet, both of which are more than reasonable for this type of hotel. The food continues to be good, but eat in the restaurant as any time i've ordered room service, the food seems like it sat for a little while. Also note that they changed the ceasar salad and now include an anchovie on top...much to my surprise.
The welcome staff are always attentive and the valet team will never miss an opportunity to open a door and welcome you back.
Overall a really good and consistent experience in a clean, newer and well located hotel!
Opportunity exists around SPG recognition. I have stayed more than 20 times the last three years and only upgraded twice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chrisnewt Wonderful Stay
We had a very nice time staying at this hotel. The staff was wonderful, everything was explained well, the decor was nice, clean overall building, good views. The only downside was finding our way around initially upon check in and then personally we didnt find the beds comfortable, they were a little firm for our tastes but manageable. We would definitely stay again.
