We were excited to stay at this 4 star hotel after seeing images and reviews online. Truth be told we tend to run more in the three or two and half stars rating hotels so certainly thought that the experience would be better with greater amenities. Nope. The hotel is in an office building, rooms have floor to ceiling windows...

This property has had many different brands over the years. The latest is Westshore Grand. It remains a high end hotel, with a very service oriented staff, and a high end steakhouse and bar in-house [Shula's]. I liked the option of valet or self-parking. I wasn't expecting the latter option for that particular site. Wifi is NOT free. I don't...

Unfortunately had a truly less than memorable experience 😳 Stayed before with my cruise friends and it was WONDERFUL. Sad to say, NOT this time. Staff member Lisa at desk extremely rude and condescending. Also could not sleep at ALL, doors slamming in hallway ALL NIGHT LONG. Was truly disappointed and dissatisfied this time around!!

My husband and I booked a room for just the two of us, and then the grand kids were thrown into the mix at the last minute. Lisa took time on a very busy night with a completely full house, to find us a room that would accommodate the unexpected (but welcome) change with the kids. We loved the hotel,...

So my wife and I stayed one night (a Friday) at this location before departing on a cruise the next day out of Tampa. We arranged for a pick up at the airport which did not start off well as I could not get anyone to answer the phone number for the bus I had, but after ten minutes or...

I really don't get the poor reviews at this hotel because I'm almost impossible to please but I loved this hotel!!! For starters, unlike most American hotels, this is super modern and stylish! It felt like Europe which is a huge compliment. The rooms are average size, clean bathrooms, comfortable beds although very bad pillows (there should have more options...

Was in Tampa for spring training baseball. The hotel had a nice upscale feel to it. The location was great, being very close to the Tampa airport, highways, malls and restaurants. Had beers and snacks at the Shula's bar one night. The rooms were big, beds comfortable, nice big screen TV, the bathroom very nice. Housekeeping was good, reliable and...

Stayed here with a friend before embarking on a cruise from Tampa. Noms were well equipped and comfortable. We had two minor issues - - We had requested adjacent rooms as our fiend was travelling alone for the first time since her husband died - She was in a room close to the lifts and found it hard to sleep...

I have been a Priceline.com customer for 10 years. 20 plus reservations. The Westshore Grand is by far the worst experience we have had by a mile. Checked in and were given a room that was a full size bed--didn't know they even had full size beds in hotels anymore. When we expressed concern the manager Teyja came over and...
