Rest and Relaxation Staying At the Sheraton Suites Tampa Airport

Disclosure: We received a complimentary one night stay at the newly remodeled Sheraton Suites Tampa Airport Westshore.  However all opinions are sincere and are my own.

On our recent family trip to Tampa we stayed at the Sheraton Suites Tampa Airport Westshore. The hotel underwent a multimillion dollar renovation in 2009.  This hotel is very centrally located, close to the airport and to shopping malls and it was ideal as we where driving back and forth to avarious different attractions and activities.

The lobby with a multi-story atrium filled with tropical vegetation gives you a sense of relaxation and positive energy with all the natural illumination, the beautiful landscaping and the sound of water coming from indoor rivers and waterfalls.  The glass elevators let you take in the whole space and enjoy the atrium as you go up to your room.

A great welcome, snacks and cookies where waiting for us in our room.


From the moment we registered we where greeted by the courteous and friendly staff.  There was a mis understanding with the the reservations and the front desk staff fixed it in no time, always with a smile on their face.  When we came back that night tired from a day of sightseeing with the kids there was a tray filled with snacks, cookies and drinks for us.  It made us feel really welcome and it was just what we needed after a long and tiring day.

The Sheraton Suites Tampa Airport Westshore is an all-suite hotel. The rooms are very spacious with a living area that includes a sleeper sofa, large flat screen TV, desk, small refrigerator and microwave.  The bedroom is separated from the living area with a door so you can enjoy a movie, a late snack or get some work done while the kids sleep in the other room.  I really liked that the living area had wood laminate floors instead of carpeting and enjoyed the warm contemporary design.  I usually combine work and family travel and I loved the huge desk with lots of conveniently located places to plug in all of my devices.  The microwave was also very convenient for heating up some dinner and saving a little.

The bedroom was spacious and the beds and pillows extremely comfortable providing for a great night’s sleep.  The bathroom could have been a little bigger but overall it was ok and the room and the hotel where very clean.

The restaurant in the lobby looks out into the atrium. The food was just ok but the server was excellent and extremely sweet with the kids going above and beyond and making our breakfast quite enjoyable despite the fact that the food could have been better.

The hotel has free Wifi in the lobby and atrium but they do charge for the internet service in the rooms and although this is standard practice in many hotels I would love to see the day when all hotels provide free Wifi, it really make a big difference for me.

We did not have the opportunity to use the pool but I like the fact that it is an indoor pool so that you are able to use it even if raining, specially since it rains during the Florida summers.

  1. I absolutely love suites when staying with the family – that way the entire room isn’t wakened up by one child. I also adore that desk – I want it at home!
