Disclosure: I was invited to the Open House event for the newly renovated Tampa Westshore Marriott in exchange for my review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy.
Last week my husband and I were invited to tour the newly renovated Tampa Westshore Marriott during their Open House event. The $20 million-dollar redesign, which includes many new amenities and features, is sure to be popular with millennials, business travelers AND even locals who are looking for a great staycation right here in beautiful Tampa Bay!
Tampa Westshore Marriott is located a few miles from Tampa International Airport and is in close proximity to the local malls, attractions and restaurants. The hotel offers a complimentary airport shuttle service as well to all locations within a 2 mile radius. So, if you don’t have a vehicle, no worries, they have you covered!
During the Open House, we were invited to tour the hotel and to see what amazing amenities that the hotel has to offer its guests. In addition to the state-of-the art rooms, the hotel offers fine dining at their Tampa Bistro Blue Restaurant, a Fitness Center, Pool, Meeting Rooms and more. If I were planning a visit to the Tampa Bay area, I would definitely be booking a room at the Tampa Westshore Marriott! This would also be such a fabulous venue for business meetings, weddings and other events. Our evening started off with food and drinks. Let me tell you, the food and drink was amazing! The catering staff went over and beyond with all of the delicious food offerings that were made available to the guests. By the time that we left the event, I was stuffed! We were offered everything from sushi and lamb chops, to sandwiches, caprese salad and everything in-between. Oh and the dessert! They offered mini trifles, strawberry shortcakes, macarons and so much more! I loved the espresso drinks and how they had their own Marriott logo on them. They were so cute!
After the delicious food, we headed outside to tour the pool area. This was such a stunning area that any pool lover is sure to enjoy! I really appreciate how both the inside and outside area are connected. This allows for a nice way to cool off from the hot, Florida sun. This is also a great option for those families with smaller children who are visiting.

After we finished touring the pool area, we headed up to the 14th floor of the hotel to view the Concierge lounge. This is a special area that is reserved for Gold & Platinum Marriott reward members. It is a beautiful spot to sit and enjoy a bite or drink with friends or even to conduct business. The lounge overlooks the airport, so this would be a great place to watch the airplanes land or to enjoy a beautiful Tampa Bay sunset!
On to the guest rooms! The guest rooms have a fresh, new modern look that is sure to please everyone. We toured the Kings and Double suites on the 14th floor and they are all so spacious! I love the suite option as it provides room for every member of the family to relax and unwind. Each room offer wifi, Netflix, charging stations, a coffee bar, mini refrigerator and even a balcony to enjoy the views!
We were very impressed with the renovations at the Tampa Marriott Westshore, and both hubby and I would love to take a little getaway here for the weekend! The location is prime, as it is right in the heart of the airport, restaurants, shopping and attractions. If you are planning a trip to Tampa Bay this hotel is a must! It checks off all the features that I look for in a hotel and more! Be sure to check out their website for pricing and availability.
