No self-parking is offered here
Wouldn't it be nice to stay near both the downtown Tampa area and the waterfront? This Westin thinks so. The hotel's island perch puts guests less than 2 miles from the city's core while still offering a large swath of boardwalk to stroll on. Recent guests delight in the location but also reserve praise for the modern, clean and comfortable rooms. Amenities include the brand's beloved Heavenly Beds, spacious bathrooms, flat-screen TVs and high-speed internet access. More praise is reserved for the hotel employees; guests describe the staff here as friendly, welcoming and quick to deliver. Other perks that accompany a stay at The Westin Tampa Harbour Island include access to a well-equipped gym, a scenic outdoor pool and signature pet amenities. While you're here, be sure to grab a bite to eat at 725 South, which earns rave reviews for its casual, contemporary American cuisine. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

Critic Reviews



Few folks think of the islands when visiting Tampa, but this 12-story hotel on a 177-acre man-made islet is a short drive from downtown Tampa and even closer to the cruise terminal.



Set on the Hillsborough River and connected to a complex of offices and restaurants, each of the hotel's rooms has a wonderful view of the waterfront or downtown area.
