A close drive from TPA the Westshore Grand provided a nice stay with some well done amenities. For starters the pool on the 9th floor was a great escape and a good spot to relax. The rooms are well done and clean although some do face an interior courtyard. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The mall across the...

This hotel is great.. one of the friendliest and most hospitable staffs I've ever encountered... the manager on duty when we arrived helped us with an accounting error that happened with our booking.. he went out his way to make sure things with smoothly with getting our refund.. the one reason I'm not giving the hotel a 5 is because...

My big complaint was the bed was so high. I had to use a chair to get in the bed. I am 62 and in fair shape but only 5.2. So they need to put a step stool in the room. The bed was comfortable once you got in it.We were on the 6th floor. The toilet didn't want to...

We arrived and we're greeted by their cheerful valet. Smiles are always appreciated! Upon check- in, I asked for single dollar bills to tip with and they didn't have any. I asked about Grimaldi's across the street, wondering if it was affiliated with the famous New York pizza restaurant and the guy at check in said he wasn't aware of...

We rec'd an excellent price for this hotel and were pleasantly surprised that we were treated as SPG members even though we booked through an on-line service. The room was awesome - beds extremely comfortable. We ate at Shula's (in the hotel) for lunch the following day and everything was great! Even though we had business in downtown St. Pete,...

This is my hotel of choice on my frequent trips to Tampa, partly because of the Illy Caffe which is a wonderful little bonus. They offer excellent espresso (not easy to find outside of Italy), an abundance of breakfast choices, and an enticing array of sandwiches and salads for later in the day.

Stayed here a few times, the hotel is lovely and clean, rooms have the most amazing beds! It's the thing I get excited about the most when coming here! Peaceful pool area. Selection of food to order room service, also can eat downstairs which is nice but I've never had the pleasure! Must give it a try! Short distance to...

Some friends and I stayed here recently because there was a good sale price online and we were visiting Tampa just overnight. We booked through hotels.com and booked 2 rooms at once and pre-paid at the time we booked. When we arrived around 10pm, the front desk clerk (her name was Jowell) was extremely unhelpful and frustrating. She said she...

I was there for a conference, room was nice, but not crazy about the height of the beds, and I am tall! My alarm radio was not working, so I had to ask for a wake up call, couldn't find the fridge and coffee pot (they are in the cabinet with drawers) but they didn't tell me that when I...

Terribly managed hotel! Arbinita the manager and Jowell the lobby staff need to go back to business school! They oversold our PREBOOKED double-bed room and would not give us our money back because they had a single-bed room available and said that they do not guarantee the room type! Apparently they think it is possible for a family of 4...
