Rated 5 out of 5 by marc729 Great Hotel with a Great View!!
My Family and I had a Great Stay at the Westin Tampa Bay. The Room was Clean and Comfortable and Lia in Housekeeping took Great Care of our Room and making sure it was tidy everyday.
I would Certainly stay at this location again if I am in Tampa. One other thing, the View of Tampa Bay was Beautiful!! Thank You to the Westin Tampa Bay for a Great Stay!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BHZMAP Great place for families
We were very impressed with the staff's friendliness and how clean the rooms and facilities were. Dog friendliness a plus as we always travel with them, they even got their own doggie pillow which was really nice. Location and nearby restaurants are convenient. The beach area is rather small, but still nice and clean. Not too busy considering it was 4th of July weekend, which was very nice.

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.

During our entire week the service was excellent. The staff was very attentive, accommodating. and friendly. My mother had Laser Spine Surgery and the staff assisted promptly with her ice packs post op. Oscar, Pamela, Chris, Macy, Adrienne, Irena were a few of the outstanding employees we had the pleasure of meeting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by pv123456 Poor Experience
Unfortunately, as soon as I entered the hotel,. the hotel was experiencing systems down and could not register me properly. When I got to the room, I needed to log onto the internet to start to work, and was unable to do this due to some of the systems being done. From noon to 2:30 pm, there was a shut down of the hot water and boiler for maintenance but a message was not shared to me upon check in or in my phone. So, I had to wait to leave my hotel until after 2:30 pm.......Finally, I just received my folio this morning and noted a charge for the mini bar for which I did not use which means to housekeeping staff that may have cleaned the room prior to my arrival did not review thoroughly for the prior guest's usage of the mini bar and or system was down ...I now have to call the hotel to have this charge removed for something that I did not use..... Unfortunately, my stay at this hotel was not so great and wish it was better esp it is a great property...

Rated 5 out of 5 by jwill28 Wrong hotel, no problem
I arrived exhausted and was eager to crawl in bed to fall asleep, only to find that I reserved a room at a different hotel. Since I travel often, this has happened before, and I'm typically told to leave...however, the gentlemen on duty took it upon himself to call the other hotel and cancel my reservation! That is going above and beyond! Thus the reason why I always stay at this hotel in Tampa

Rated 3 out of 5 by boomer14 This hotel has wonderful beds!
The hotel was hot when we arrived to the lobby to check in. The staff was very nice but the room was not to standards for a Westin Hotel. We came from Seattle, Washington to see my sister and was excited to be able to stay with you. The room needs painting, the iron didn't work and the chairs needs cleaning. The bed was wonderful and the bathroom was very nice and clean, but you do need to go inside the room and up date the room to the Westin's standards. Otherwise we had a very nice restful night!

We stayed at the Westin Tampa Bay for a week for our son's wedding. The staff was great and the hotel was the perfect place for everyone to stay during all the wedding events.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mimi1150 Disapointing cleanliness
I found a pill and a bamboo skewer on the floor, and some kind of pink stuff on the wall in the bathroom. I have higher expectations of a Westin.

I will always choose a Westin Hotel. I like the atmosphere and everything is very comfortable!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Doctorstork Never again
Internet charges of $10 a day and also paying for parking $5 a day are horrible. A stranger can walk into the bar and have free internet but a guest pays to use it in a $250 a day room. A room with a view uses the highway as it's photo op. Outdoor seating uses the highway too. They have a beautiful wall waterfall in the parking lot ??? I will never use this place again

Rated 5 out of 5 by PDJames Several steps above the other hotels
From our arrival being greeted by the valets to the front desk to the housekeepers and the bartender it was an easy stay. We will be back if we have business in Tampa.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bigdog Location
Convenient location and very clean and quiet hotel. Check in was below standard as there was no recognition of Platinum status or platinum benefits offered ( hotel was at 45% occupancy). Sheets were hard and uncomfortable and pillows were substandard for Heavenly Bed. Club lounge staff was exceptional. Charged for mini bar use that I did not consume (AGAIN -seems to be a pattern at this hotel).

The hotel was fabulous. Our room was a little warm even though the thermostat was set on 65. Other than that everything was excellent.

Traveled to Tampa for surgery at LSI. The staff at the hotel were very helpful during my surgery experience. Would highly recommend to those going for surgery at LSI.

Enjoyed two fresh fish dinners at the bar, very good and very reasonable. Very upbeat environment. Only issue was the air conditioning in my room never seemed to get the room cool. I have stayed here before and will again. Was disappointed that I had to ask for a room upgrade, no recognition of Platinum status.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Andrew333 Book elsewhere....send a message to this property!!
Please like this review as helpful, spread this to all loyal SPG members you know and help to send a message to this property.
As a loyal SPG participant (currently lifetime Gold, soon to be lifetime Platinum) as well as very loyal to this hotel, my recent stay in conjunction with their lack of participation in SPG promos, I will now be taking my 60-70 nights a year in Tampa elsewhere and urge everyone to do the same.
This has been my go to hotel in the past, yet has continued to go downhill on recent visits, inclusive of this one and the recent lack of participation in the Q2 promo is the final straw.
Loyal SPG members, there are and soon will be a few more great SPG options in the area and the management team doesn't care about their loyal guests...please book elsewhere.
Classic example of a great hotel gone bad, by the lack of leadership and desire to support its loyal guests.
Disappointing stay followed by an equally disappointing follow-up request and denial by the manager.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JJF53 ALWAYS GOOD TO GREAT
I have had a handful of stays here over the past year and each one was consistently good to excellent. I have always been able to check in early, status is recognized, lobby is clean, inviting and restaurant/bar is good. Location to airport/freeway/downtown/beaches all good.
it is more convenient for me to stay closer to where my business is located about 25 miles away, but I always choose this property for its consistent performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Michigan1 Great room, but noisy
Service was great, room was clean and comfortable. However, the hotel sits on the side of a busy highway, and the road noise was pretty loud in the room. I made due with ear plugs, but couldn't sleep otherwise. The indoor pool was small and the acoustics made for an overwhelming experience. Way too loud, so we didn't stay at the pool for long. Overall, a good hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BP30 Housekeeping service needs improvement
We stayed 4 nights and the housekeeping service declined each servicing of the room. Soap was not replenished. Wash cloths were not replenished. The floor mat towel was stained.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ianmommy This hotel was convenient
When checking in our room was not available but were given another room. The helpfulness of the day staff needs to be addressed and perhaps learn better from the evening staff; which were terrific! If we were coming to Tampa again we would stay at this location again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Scott861 Not up to usual Westin expectations
My wife & I have stayed here the last 2 years for the St. Petersburg Grand Prix, and I was especially disappointed with our recent stay. We tend to stay at Westin due to its reputation and that it's in the SPG network. But this may very well be our last stay at this particular location. Housekeeping was way below our usual expectations from Westin - I'm not sure it went beyond simply making the bed and refreshing the towels. The dirty glasses were never replaced; toiletries were never refreshed; and there was no evidence the shower was ever cleaned any of the 3 days we were there. Although it was convenient to the airport and other attractions and restaurants we were interested in, the below-par housekeeping trumped that on this visit.
