Downtown Tampa A review of Westin Tampa Harbour Island
Alot is expected with the hotel chain~name Wyndham...I had read all the reviews b4 booking my reservation. This hotel charged valet parking$14 a nite & $10 self parking...this can really add up if your stay is more than 3 days. thankful I had taken a cab to the hotel & not rental a car. The hotel staff are very polite & pleasant, makes the extra effort to please YOU!! It really paid off being a member~member services you get favorite fruit plate and best view/rm & your favorite drink upon arrival in your room...very nice....nothing else much in the area. The health spa is $16. a day 2 blks walk. I had a free pass as part of my reservation. a 1 day pass...there is a large outdoor pool, 2 whirlpools, sauna, basketball/tennis courts...& massage spa. I had a lovely deep tissue massage. This was the best of what the hotel had to offer. The rooms are in the process of being re-done...the carpet is being replaced on the entired 10fl I was told and the floor was closed off. I do recommend this hotel & it's better if you don't mind taking cabs...the hotel does offer free shuttle service to & from TAMPA airport only...I came in from St. Peterburgs/Clearwater airport. Do check out the International shopping mall...The buffet b'fast is very good too $12.60 tax incl. only one restaurant & a small unevenful bar w/lite snacks. not bad if you just want a quick bit. maid service was very good.& rooms clean with lots of good running hot water. no whirlpool/spa directly on the property. One outdoor pool was small but nice (heated) August 19-23-04.
