Rated 5 out of 5 by MarieR The beds are amazing!
I love coming to the Westin. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean and comfortable and have everything I need to work from my room if need be. And the beds are amazing, I always get a good nights rest.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dlynn1 Bad Service
My job is to coordinate business meetings and travel making sure that my company's employees are taken care of.
The Westin staff in unaware of how to work with business travel and coordinating assistants. I will not be booking business travel with the Westin in the furture.

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!

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 NYRangers Great property
I just returned from the Westin Tampa and had a great stay. It's a very nice property located on the causeway going towards Clearwater just 5 minutes from the Tampa airport.
I'm a SPG Platinum member. There were no suites available, but I was given a room on the top floor (club level). I was only able to use the club lounge one night as it is closed on the weekends, but it is very nice and has a great view of the bay and downtown Tampa.
Note: Ask for a room with a tub and you will get a room with a much larger bathroom that includes a separate tub and shower.
The hotel has an excellent bar/restaurant called Aqua. The bar has an outdoor area the fronts on the small, but very nice manmade beach. The food there is excellent for a hotel restaurant!
There is also a large 24 hour indoor pool and jacuzzi that was always empty.
On-site Valet parking is $5 per day. Hotel has a free airport shuttle, but you will want to rent a car, as there is nothing within walking distance of the property.
Overall, it's a clean, comfortable hotel with very friendly staff. I will return on my next visit to Tampa.
