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 LolaLani Simply, Consistently, OUTSTANDING
Stay here several times a month! Love the views from the rooms, love dining at Aqua, and love that they know my name when I walk back in the door!!! Special shout out to Carlos at the front desk for always getting me a great room with floor to ceiling windows and James in reservations for finding me a room at the last minute!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jack62 My overall stay
I rated the stay as average. Also that I would not recommend. The only reason I say that is most of the folks I talk with are business people that travel to Tampa St Pete. The Internet access was a joke. It dropped me constantly or just degraded to a point that it was not usable. I can deal with a lot but when out of town working and inconsistent Internet that is a deal killer. I cancelled my August 25th to 27th stay and moved to another hotel chain. Maybe next time I will try you again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by seabird Not the level of cleanliness I am used to
I stayed for 2 nights at the Westin. As I walked the hallway to my room for check in there was a pile of dirty linens laying in the hallway - unacceptable.
The second night I found empty drinking glasses sitting in the hallway as well as a plunger for the toilet - this was in the evening, way past the "cleaning" time.
This was not good housekeeping and should not have happened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sabrina83 The Westin Tampa Bay is an excellent choice!
As a traveling consultant I have spent the last 7 months staying at this hotel on a weekly basis. The hotel is very well kept, the rooms were always in an excellent condition and the staff was awesome! This property is in a wonderful location right on the bay and very close to many restuarants and shopping options. I was especially impressed with the staff who was always cheerful and willing to help. A special kudos to the Platinum Lounge staff member (i.e, Mazie) who provided excellent service and great conversation!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DistrictScott Great hotel in a great location near Tampa International
I always enjoy staying in this hotel while in Tampa for work. Great wifi and nice amenities, and it's also quite close to International Plaza and Bay Street shopping.
My only issue is always with the extremely soft water. It makes it very difficult to remove soap when washing hands or bathing, and also dries skin out.

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 3 out of 5 by Rogy Misinformed about bedding.
Booked a room with 2 beds that we thought were queens. The beds were doubles which were not comfortable for our family. My husband and I shared a double and had our children sharing the other double. We requested a roll away bed but the front desk refused to deliver. The hotel was booked for weddings. We had the option of staying at another hotel close by but chose the Westin since the quality usually is excellent. Would not recommend this hotel.
