Our waterfront atmosphere leaves nothing to be desired, with an outdoor pool and a full-service business center. Host an event in one of our 13 flexible meeting rooms, some offering stunning harbor views. Enjoy delicious continental fare at our elegant restaurant, 725 South. Our oversized guest rooms and suites at The Westin Tampa Harbour Island are designed to enhance your relaxation. Relax in our signature Heavenly® Bed for a peaceful night’s sleep. Refresh the next morning in one of our spacious bathrooms, equipped with the Heavenly® Shower featuring dual showerheads.
Going from Denver to Tampa in December what is an important factor to a three day stay? Swimming in a heated outdoor pool as shown on the Westin website. We arrived on the third floor in our suits ready to swim only to find out the pool was under construction. The hotel claims the third party we booked with should have told us, they didn't. Neither did the front desk when we checked in. Very disappointed!
I had a short stay. The price was the main factor in my choice and the location near a conference at the Marriott. The view was very pleasant. I did not use any of the facilities so could not really rate this item. I suggest having a box NA for this circumstance.
The mattresses are very soft. My experience is that good mattresses and hotel mattresses are firm. No vending machines on the floors. Water flow in the sink was very low. Shower produced huge volume, which wastes too much water. I suggest low flow shower heads, but it may be that guests like using floods of water when it's not their own. The cable TV lost the satellite connection, possibly due to a thunderstorm at that time.
Looks very beautiful in common areas
Lots of money for what you get and you have to pay extra to park which isn't included anywhere when you sign up as well as pay for wifi
