Tampa Marriott Westshore is Perfect for Every Occasion (Review) by Theodore Frost

The Tampa Marriott Westshore is Perfect for Every Occasion (Review). After hearing about the newly renovated Tampa Marriott Westshore I had to check it out for myself. Upon enering the newly updated hotel I was impressed with the updates. I was lucky enough to be offered a chance to explore the hotel and all that it has to offer guests. If I were planning a conference, party or wedding this would be a location that I would consider in the Tampa Bay area.
For bridal showers, baby showers, or any other type of casual event their pool area is absolutely beautiful. Their pool deck offers an indoor/outdoor seating and swimming area which is practically unheard of in Florida. It’s not like I am on the upper east coast in Atlantic City where an outdoor pool is practically unheard of. This really is the best of both worlds. For those of us who are sun worshipers who need their Vitamin D, the outdoor area is beautiful. For those who need a break from the sun like my mother the shady lady or for one of those notorious hot Tampa summer days, the veranda would be a fun place to relax. The great thing about their pool area is that both the indoor and outdoor areas are connected so your party guests would all be in the same general area. For families on vacation this would be a perfect place to relax with small kids.
The location of the Tampa Marriott Westshore would be perfect for guests. It’s located just a few miles from the Tampa Airport and offers complimentary airport shuttle service. Which I have taken advantage of on more than one occasion. The shopping nearby is the best in the Tampa Bay with 2 shopping malls within walking distance! The restaurant selection within walking distance is abundant with options for everyone at every budget. In addition, the Blue Bistro is their onsite restaurant which offers contemporary American cuisine and fresh made cocktails.
During my stay I toured the 14th floor Concierge lounge that is reserved for Gold & Platinum Marriott reward members.
The lounge offered a place for members to relax after a busy day with some amazing views of the Tampa Bay and the Tampa Airport. You can watch the sunset over the Bay while watching the planes landing at the airport.
The guest rooms have also gotten a fresh new look. We toured the Double, King, and Suites on the 14th floor to see all these new updates. There’s Netflix on all of the TVs, in room wifi, and more charging stations than you’ll ever need. Trust me…..there are PLENTY of charging stations for our family of four….and we each have 2-3 devices that need charged while on vacation!!
If you’re going to be staying for more than just 1-2 nights, the suite offers a little extra room for you and your family to have a separate living and dining area away from the bedroom and work space.
The King rooms are so relaxing!
…and you absolutely MUST get a room with a balcony facing Tampa Bay and the airport for sunset! This would also be a great spot to wake up and drink your coffee!
Overall I was impressed with the Tampa Marriott Westshore and the renovations that have been made. It’s a great location that is convenient to the Tampa Business District and shopping areas. This would be an amazing venue to host a party, conference, or special even especially for the business traveler who is traveling with their family. This would be a great spot for locals to stay after an event downtown if you didn’t want to drive home or a fun place to stay the night before an early flight!What features do you look for in a hotel? This one certainly checked off all of my favorites!
