The hotel

Situated adjacent to the Tampa Convention Center, and within footstops of the Riverfront District, the Westin Tampa Bay Waterside is a top choice for business or leisure trips. Whether you find yourself here on the way to one of the many famous beaches on the gulf coast, or if Tampa is your home for a few nights, this hotel provides sleek, refreshing accommodation for you to relax and rejuvenate after a busy day. Indulge in dock-to-dish seafood combined with inventive cocktails whilst looking out over the water, or take a stroll to one of many local restaurants in the area. If you fancy working up a sweat, the fitness centre is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and the pool will be a welcome treat to cool you down afterwards that’s for sure.

The hotel lacked the hospitality and reception you'd normally receive at a Westin. Five valet attendants but no one there to help you with bags?

The hotel lacked the hospitality and reception you'd normally receive at a Westin. Five valet attendants but no one there to help you with bags? Reception isn't even on the main floor; you have to take an escalator to the second floor, or in my case the elevator, which was very difficult to find due to poor signage. Three elevators and only the far left was functioning, which made wait times obnoxiously long. No complimentary WiFi, which I found strange. Found out that the refrigerator in the room has a 2 hour timer then shuts off, which ruined our Bern's Steakhouse leftovers. I couldn't order room service for breakfast, so I went downstairs to order, they brought it up to our room and forgot silverware. I normally book American Express Platinum "Fine Hotels + Resorts or The Hotel Collection" accommodations. When I couldn't find any in Tampa, I thought surely the Westin would rise to that standard. I was VERY wrong! Read less

Excellent stay! Very reasonably priced and in a great location that was right on the waterfront on a small island overlooking the downtown area.

Excellent stay! Very reasonably priced and in a great location that was right on the waterfront on a small island overlooking the downtown area. Bell attendants were all very helpful and knowledgeable of area and attractions. Pool area was beautiful, although lacked shade and pool bar area was not opened throughout our stay. Overall we did think it was certainly a great option if we are ever in the Tampa area in the future. Read less

Attended a conference and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Westin. Great location, beautiful views of the city and helpful staff. The room was also very nice. Had everything I needed. Definitely will visit again.

My family loved the location, service, & room! It was spacious enough for a family of four. Everything is within walking distance of all the fun activities at the Habor. If you need to hop on an electric scooter they are all around for more exploring.
