Hotel Description
On an island just south of downtown with an outdoor pool and great water views the Westin Tampa Waterside feels secluded yet is close to all of the city's most popular destinations. The 12-story hotel with a lovely terra cotta fašade has the feel of a resort. The palm-shaded outdoor pool with its own views of the harbor has crisp umbrellas that call to mind a Caribbean destination. Even the fitness room stocked with cardio machines overlooks the water. The chic lobby with its low-slung furnishings and rich wood accents makes you want to linger over quiet conversation. The 299 non-smoking rooms have some stunning views especially those that gaze west toward the sunset. Beds are extra-soft as you'd expect from the Westin and are covered in luxe linens. Flat-panel TVs with instant-access movies are there when you want to kick back and Wi-Fi connections let you brag about your accommodations to the folks back home. If you have to get some work done there's a large desk with ample lighting and a back-saving ergonomic chair. Parking is available for an additional fee. The Tampa Convention Center is a stone's throw from the Westin's front door making this a convenient location for business travelers. The Florida Aquarium a favorite with families is less than a mile away and even closer is the St. Pete Times Forum the home of the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey team and a popular concert venue. Tampa International Airport the city's main gateway is seven miles northwest.

Purpose for visit was NCAA tournament. The Westin location is perfect for activities being held at the convention center or Times Forum. We enjoyed everything from valet parking to the river walk. We had a wonderful stay and I recommend the Westin Harbour Island highly.

Liked: Location was amazing and the pool so relaxing with an excellent view and plenty of privacy from the hustle bustle of downtown.
Disliked: I did feel like it was crazy to have such a high rate without any form of complimentary breakfast but other than that it was wonderful.

Very good

Liked: The location and rooms
Disliked: The check in was horrible. I had to wait about an hour, because the lady at check in charged my card but claimed it didnt go through. I called my bank and they confirmed that transaction was approved. However, the lady charged me again. I basically paid twice for the stay. It took a while to return my money. In addition to that, the lady was very rude and I was not feeling welcome at check in
