Westin Tampa Harbour Island

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • On a corner of a man-made island in Tampa Bay, with water views on nearly all sides
  • Only steps from the convention center, but dressed up like a tropical retreat
  • Heavenly Beds, showers with two heads, and fantastic views
  • Less than a mile from downtown Tampa

"A wonderful view of the waterfront or downtown" -- AAA

Overview

While it's only a short footbridge away from Tampa's convention center, the Westin Harbour Island attracts more than business travelers. As its name suggests, the hotel strives to be more like a tropical escape than a business center. It can still be plenty serious, with a fitness center and a spot to power lunch, but also strives for comfort. That restaurant has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the harbor and spills out onto a breezy patio. Next to it is a heated pool wrapped up in palm trees and sun loungers.

Rooms are done in neutral tones, with Heavenly Beds and showers with two heads. Most have large windows with views over the downtown skyline or the water. 

Harbour Island itself is peaceful, leafy and residential, encircled by marinas for plying the bay and the swanky mansions of local sports heroes. After doing business downtown -- which is less than a mile from the hotel -- head southwest to South Tampa's SoHo neighborhood, where some of the city's best nightlife bounces into the evening.

From the press:
  • "Each of the hotel's rooms has a wonderful view of the waterfront or downtown" -- AAA
  • "This hotel insists that you're here on vacation and not stuck in some downtown convention hotel" -- Frommer's

Nice location on water, altho a bit far from downtown, etc.

Bright white light on smoke alarm flashed all night. IN morning, front desk says they usually respond to this complaint by sending up maintenance with black tape to mask the light. So not a new problem. Also,the double lock on door (the sturdier replacement for old door chains) was bent out of shape and didn't work.

The hotel was much more 3 star, or less, than I expected from a Westin. It is definitely in need of a makeover / update. Also, there was some sort of construction going on above my room. It would of been nice for someone at the front desk to have warned me that this noise would be going on during my stay.

Other Comments
Expected a better room for that hotel. it was definitely in need of some TLC. One bed appeared as if someone took a nap in it before we arrived, mini fridge was missing a leg so it wobbled every time we tried to use it. Bathroom had some bad repairs that you could see were patched up. Lastly when I got up about 1:00am to get some water could hear the music, I assume was from the nightclub downstairs and we were on the 9th floor.
