Best Hotels in Tampa Bay
An island oasis just a few yards from downtown.
Surrounded by water and lush landscaping, this former Wyndham property is one of the premier choices in the area. It's located on a residential island development connected by bridge to busy downtown and its many business offices. Affluent corporate types frequently stay here, as do tourists who fly in for concerts and sports events and travelers who dock at the nearby marina. The 299 guest rooms feature old-fashioned touches like oversized windows, many of which overlook Tampa Bay. Office-friendly perks include high-speed data port connections and wireless capabilities (also available in the lobby). The hotel's elegant Thats Amore restaurant features Italian fare, and room service is also offered. Nice, international touches include a currency exchange at the front desk and a staff that speaks Spanish. Guests will also enjoy the Westin WORKOUT® Powered by Reebok Gym, a business center and thirteen meeting rooms. A scheduled shuttle provides transport to attractions such as Ybor City (the citys trendy Latin Quarter), Hyde Park (an old-Florida residential area with shops and restaurants), and the Salvidor Dali Museum.
