Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeff1801 An Excellent Propergy
We stayed at the Westin Tampa Bay in conjunction with a Rays/Tigers baseball game (two rooms for one night each). In the past (and primarily for Lightning/Wings hockey games), we have stayed at the Westin Tampa Harbour Island. I now know that there are two outstanding Westin properties in Tampa. I particularly appreciated the service we received at the front desk (I believe it was Carlos that assisted us) as well as that in the restaurant. Overall, both the property and the staff made me very happy to be a Lifetime Platinum SPG Member.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ternav Excellent visit 8/17-18
Arrived at the hotel at 8:15 am. Knew we wouldn't be able to check in until 3 pm. We were told by Angela at the front desk that we were free to use all the amenities and our luggage would be secured. We headed to Aqua for a bite to eat. Angela showed up at 9:15 with our room keys, our luggage had been delivered to our room. She recognized that we were anxious to get settled and made it happen!! That was just the beginning. Our breakfast server was great (sorry I didn't catch his name-he was working the morning of 8/17). Pete, the manager, took time to give us a tour. Bar staff Kim, Austyn, and Ryan all very personable and professional. Gregory, our dinner server, was very knowledgable, his recommendations were spot on (amazing carpaccio and grouper). Will recommend this hotel without hesitation!! Oh, and the best bed ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MartyAnn Excellent Club floor & lounge!
I had the pleasure of staying on the club floor with my husband. My room was spacious and immaculate. Adrienne the club attendant was gracious, friendly, personal and helpful. She is a really hard worker and does a fantastic job in the club lounge! You can tell she really loves her job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charlie02 A Note from Charlie's Mother
We stayed 2 nights and were treated wonderfully by all staff members. Everyone got to know Charlie, my Welsh Corgi. He seemed to be the star of the weekend. But everyone, from the minute we arrived, had our BEST interest in mind. Keep up the good work and we'll be back!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rodeogal Facility concerns
All of the service, the room, etc were excellent - there is one major concern: there were ALOT of men and women coming in groups/singles that did not appear to be one that a 'family oriented' hotel would enjoy. It was evident to my co-worker who was travel with me as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kishun20 great hotel
We had our family there and we were treated very well and the hotel exceeded our expectation. I think the club room lounge should have had more variety of food. Praise should be given to Mr. Carlos Quinones he did an excellent job. I will return to this hotel next year because I feel comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FloridaNative1 A Great Stay Every Time!
I live an hour north of Tampa and stay here frequently when I visit the area for concerts, meetings and flights.
In more than a dozen stays, The Westin Tampa Bay has always exceeded expectations. The Front Desk staff is warm and friendly and goes the extra mile in meeting my requests.
The rooms and public areas are spotless - I have never seen anything out of place.
The location is ideal. It is minutes from the airport(a 15 minute shuttle), near the junction of several expressways, not too far from downtown and on the causeway that leads to nearby Ruth Eckerd Hall (a great concert venue) and Clearwater Beach.
The rooms are very comfortable and offer terrific up close views of Tampa Bay and mid distance views of air traffic into Tampa International and the lights of downtown. I've seen schools of dolphin a number of times from my room.
The small, manmade beach on site is OK for sunning but other beaches are better and nearby. Jet skies and powerboats are available at the hotel for rental.
The food is not bad but it is overpriced for the portions you receive - don't eat here if you are hungry. In particular, the calamari appetizer, while stylish, is tiny. There are many good options nearby.
I've averaged more that 125 nights a year since 1981 in international business and leisure travel. For its type (domestic city / airport hotel), The Westin Tampa Bay is one of my favorites. A good value and highly recommended!
