Under renovation but still great.

Pros: The location and the staff.
Cons: I'm not a big fan of paying extra for wi-fi access, especially when lower-priced chains offer it for free and more expensive ones charge.
Location: Took a short cab ride to a new Indian restaurant that was fantastic, like a being in a movie.
The hotel was undergoing renovations, but the staff provided written and verbal information about the process, the hours of active renovations, and the alternatives for pool and fitness facilities. I believe Madeleine was the person who helped me check-in, and she was fantastic. The view of the water was great, too. The room was clean, bright, comfortable, and well-stocked with towels and pillows. I appreciated the complimentary bottle of water. The people working at the entrance and valet station were also fantastic and went above and beyond to make transportation more accessible and easy for me with a temporary leg brace.

Worst hotel experience of my 43 years of life

This hotel does not have any amenities that they display on their page. We left at 1 am and didnt even stay there. My recommendation is to go to the Marriot right up the street. Harbour Island should be ashamed to have this in their neighborhood.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review in regards to your recent stay at the Westin Tampa Harbour Island Hotel. As a valued guest, we see that there is room for many improvements based on your feedback. We saw that you rated our hotel as a 1. Please accept our apology for not meeting your expectations during your stay concerning the quality and amenities that the hotel offers. Our entire staff strives to provide the utmost in service and accommodations and we failed to deliver a flawless guest experience. The hotel has some exciting news to share. We will be undergoing a major $18 million dollar renovation beginning in August. Guestroom renovations will include new bedding, all new guestroom furniture, carpeting, new 49” flat screen televisions, seating, artwork, painting and new RFID door locks with mobile capabilities. Our corridors, meeting rooms, restaurant and lobby will be completely renovated as well. In addition the Westin will be adding a private Club Lounge for all Club Level, SPG Platinum and Ambassador Guests. Our completion date for all of our expansive renovations will be completed by late December of this year. On behalf of the entire Westin Team, we thank you for your business and we hope to welcome to the hotel once the renovations are completed later this year. Warm Regards, Maryann White General Manager

The carpeting and furnishings could use updating. The ventilation system had an odd oder.
